While Wayne visits their former colleagues as FBI consultant, his wife Grace is kidnapped from their home. Last shortlist suspect Richard Haibach is arrested but came perfectly prepared even before his lawyer Laura Dubin arrives. The pair is abducted by Jane, who drops her on the road, and Wayne, who can't resist threatening Richard at gunpoint. When Patrick holds him back, the fiend gets hold of the gun and orders them to his late grandfather's cabin, where his sister Hazel guards Grace. However, the Haibachs are still in for a crucial surprise too. Written by KGF Vissers
