Detailed Synopsis

A Lab Technician monotonously gives directions to Harry. Dr. Gastner tells Harry, John Bradford Horn saved his life, while Dr. Fairling tells Harry, he owes Horn. Harry stands up and Horn asks him how he feels. Harry says he will do whatever Horn wants him to do and Horn has Harry shoot himself in the head. Horn then says the next subject will be Stringfellow Hawke. At Dominic Air, Dominic has a phone conversation where he agrees to charter a flight for an unknown caller. Later a limo pulls up and "Mr. Van Dorian" steps out of the limo with Angelica Bolotin Horn in order for Hawke to fly him to Scottsdale, Arizona. Hawke wonders why he chartered him for three days when the flight only takes three hours and "Mr. Van Dorian" tells him he needs Hawke to fly a briefcase full of special gems to a buyer. Hawke gets in the helicopter with Angelica and they take off. They land and "Mr. Van Dorian", who is already at the hotel pulls off his makeup to reveal he is Horn in disguise. Hawke and Angelica go to their respective rooms and she tells him to meet her in the lobby later, with a tie. She calls room service and tells them neither she or Hawke are to be disturbed. She and Hawke have dinner and dance. As they are getting into an elevator to return to their rooms, Horn disguised as "Neal Streep", tells Angelica the buyer now wants the gems delivered to him in the Palo Duro, Texas area.

They fly to Texas and as Hawke and Angelica get out of the helicopter, Horn welcomes Hawke, who is then ambushed by a group of armed men who take him captive. Hawke is placed in a chair with his eyes taped open and shown a video of Horn's face floating around, while Lab Technician, Dr. Fairling and Dr. Gastner repeat the same phrases they told Harry. Later, Dr. Gastner and Dr. Fairling take Hawke to a room full of men in suits, including TJ, with a large painting of Horn hanging from the wall. Horn asks Hawke if he knows who the man in the painting is and Hawke tells him he does and he owes him his allegiance. Angelica asks Hawke how he feels about her and how she deceived him and she tells him he owes her many thanks for bringing him to see Horn. Horn, still disguised as "Neal" removes his disguise and reveals himself to Hawke and says he needs Hawke's help. Dominic receives a special delivery package and when Caitlin O'Shannessy opens it she finds a videocassette inside. They watch the video and Hawke tells Dominic he is being held hostage and wants Dominic to deliver Airwolf to the location and time in the note included with the videocassette. Dominic and Caitlin arrive at G. Van Dorian GVD Fine Jewelry with Michael Coldsmith Briggs III, Archangel, but find the building for lease. They call the phone number on the for lease sign and hear a recording warning not to do things their way anymore or Hawke will be killed.

Archangel tells Dominic the FIRM isn't going to let them give Airwolf to the kidnappers. Caitlin tells Archangel she can fly Airwolf, which makes him upset. Archangel gives Dominic 48 hours to get Hawke out and then the FIRM is going to attack the kidnapper's base. He also gives them an experimental serum to block the effects of mind control. Airwolf lands and Dominic gets out, while Caitlin stays hidden. Hawke shoots and seemingly kills Dominic and Airwolf is brought to the kidnappers base. During the night, Caitlin turns the power on in Airwolf and as a guard goes to look inside Airwolf, he is knocked unconscious by Caitlin. Horn argues with Angelica, who has grown to like Hawke. Horn admits to her he is worried that she might help Hawke and Angelica tells him she would never betray him. Caitlin sneaks into the building as Horn, Angelica and TJ go inside of it. Dr. Fairling tells Horn it won't be until morning until Dominic wakes up from the sleep pellets he was shot with in Hawke's gun and Horn tells her he wants Dominic brainwashed as soon as he wakes up.

Angelica goes to Hawke's room and Caitlin follows her. She asks Hawke if they have a chance together even with the way she deceived him and he kisses her. The Lab Technician brings Hawke's food and Angelica kisses Hawke before leaving. As the Lab Technician leaves Hawke's room, Caitlin enters it and uses the serum Archangel gave her as Hawke attacks her. Hawke comes to and remembers shooting Dominic, but Caitlin tells him Dominic is still alive. Later, Hawke is brought to Horn by Dr. Fairling and Dr. Gastner. Horn tells Hawke his plan is to take over a country in the Caribbean called Moro, for men like him who believe intelligence makes right. Horn tells him his mission is to destroy a rebel outpost on the island and then radio back. TJ gives Hawke a map with a rendezvous location. In the morning Hawke takes off in Airwolf but attacks Horn's base instead. Caitlin frees Dominic and they are then rescued by Hawke in Airwolf. TJ picks up Horn and Angelica in a car and they drive away. Airwolf catches up to the car, but find only TJ inside, who has committed suicide.
