A convicted murderer escapes prison. He has been threatening a woman, spurring McGarrett to arrive at the woman's home with police officers. As the lawman arrives, the convict calls, telling the woman he will kill her by nightfall. While McGarrett guards the woman, he also probes to find out more about the circumstances that led to the man's conviction. It's clear that McGarrett believes there's more to the case than she has been telling.

When McGarrett holds out his palm, the shells are hollow empty casings, incapable of being fired even as blanks. See more
