Storyline

Donald orders everybody else out of the library, explaining to Rick that he has taken him hostage in order to be provided with a chess set, denied him on safety grounds. He is a fairly jocular kidnapper, even getting Rick to play Twenty Questions to guess his crime - killing a rival drug dealer. He gets Rick to open up about his own insecurities which bores him so much he falls asleep, allowing Rick to tiptoe out of the room, though in his press conference Rick gives a more heroic account of his escape.
