Hostages keeps intriguing me.

On this week's episode, tensions rise as Ellen is questioned by the Secret Service for her part in the medicine switching, Brian sees his misteresses under very awkward circumstances, captors get into conflict and Duncan shows Ellen the consequence of her action.

Consequences. Everything on this show has consequences. I did not think that any of the family members would die this early in the series, so I wasn't surprised when they fired an empty gun. But Duncan did show Ellen his mind games, and that he will kill her family if she continues like this.

Furthermore, the twist at the end of the pilot episode, also has consequences. I like the fact that the Secret Service is not taking the threat lightly and not being so naive. But the medicine switching also has consequences for Ellen. Somebody has to take the blame for the action, and when Ellen fails to convince her friend Angela, Angela pays with her life.

But Ellen's action also have consequences for the captors. Since their one-day job will now spawn two weeks, they are not very happy with their job. You can really see conflicts among the conspirators arise, and it will only be a matter of time till they turn on each other.

Also, Duncan's kind of risky action as an FBI agent is also taken seriously as he is being questioned about his actions. What I really liked about that scene is the deep psychology Duncan was talking about. He was obviously refering to himself when he talked about the stress that a hostage situation causes for the captors.

Overall a good episode. I am hooked, and I am looking forward to next week (especially after having seen the promo)!
