Hijack Season 1 Episode 4 Recap
In the opening moments of Hijack Episode 4, one of the hijackers, Stuart, walks around the aircraft brandishing a revolver and instills dread in the passengers. He seizes Arthur and makes him issue a statement ordering the passengers to maintain their seats and silence. The fact that Lizzy, the daughter of Kate and David, temporarily went away but eventually turned up calms the passengers’ concerns. Sheena, who went in search of Lizzy, is unfortunately wounded.
A member of the cabin crew named Eve Myles‘s Alice Sinclair tries to explain to the Romanian ATC officials on the ground why she is unable to meet their requests. Stuart decides to disregard the police calls, which raises anxiety. When Jaden (Mohamed Elsandel) sees a pouch on the ground, he lets Nasir help his uncle with his prescription. Following the incident with Lizzy, Kate starts to worry more and more about the security of her kids. Sam is asked to tie his hands up by Terry, heightening the tension even more.
One of the hijackers, Lewis, offers Stuart a different strategy, but Stuart is adamant on carrying out their commands. Lewis is given the go-ahead to treat his wound with the aid of the cabin staff. Sam uses Deevia, a member of the cabin crew, as a pawn to influence Lewis. Kate declines when the group asks for a doctor to assist in treating Lewis, but Sam persuades Lewis to release his handcuffs so he may help. Sam genuinely cares about Lewis and attempts to connect with him on a personal level.
The grounded character Marsha, who is concerned about her relationship with Kai, gets a call from an unknown caller who coerces her into agreeing to give their neighbors Sam’s package. Other London-based officers hear about the hijackers from Zahra Gahfoor (Archie Panjabi), another ground-based character. They find that the records of the hijackers are missing. The minister from Romania tries to get in touch with them.
A Romanian government official who views the hijacked jet as a potential threat and has threatened military action is spoken to by the foreign secretary. Due to worries about terrorism, Alice alerts the London offices about two Romanian military jets flying close to the British airliner. Once the hijackers are aware of this, they tell the travelers to roll up their windows. Stuart is still insistent about doing nothing but obeying directions.
The chained characters ask Colette, one of the passengers, to figure out how to deliver a message. Jaden stops her when she tries to look through a window at one of the jets outside. Without compelling evidence, Alice finds it difficult to convince the Bucharest government that the jet is not a threat. Jamie Constantinou (Aimée Kelly) and Captain Robin Allen (Ben Miles) argue as Robin tries to persuade Stuart to speak with the Romanian officials. Stuart eventually consents to let Robin communicate with them.
Lewis is still being courted by Sam, who tricks him into talking to his “mother”—in reality Marsha (Christine Adams) —on the phone. In order to corroborate the hijacking, Marsha contacts Daniel. When they track down the individual Sam described, they find out it’s organized crime. The military jets are forced to return to their base when it is discovered that the hijackers are British nationals and that Bucharest was not their intended destination.
As Terry loses patience, David offers to assist Lewis as a doctor. Lewis stops breathing, but with Sam’s help, they are able to bring him back to life, earning Sam the hijackers’ increased trust. The passengers are relieved when Colette opens the windows after noticing that the planes had vanished. Jamie receives Lewis’ phone from Sam in the last seconds, and Marsha rushes home to discover Kai missing. An urgent phone call is placed to the foreign secretary after the home secretary receives an envelope with the word “Demands” scrawled on the top.
Hijack Episode 4 Recap: What are the Hijacker’s demands? Ending Explained!
The demands of the hijackers are revealed in “Hijack” Season 1 Episode 4 titled “Not Responding” through an envelope labeled “demands” towards the conclusion of the episode. According to the letter’s contents, Flight KA29’s hijacking on January 7, 2023, led to the unlawfully imprisoning of Edgar Hansen and John Bailey. The hijackers provide a chance to avenge this alleged injustice by letting the guys go free before the plane lands in London. The 216 passengers on board would perish if future orders weren’t followed or if someone tried to stop the jet from flying.
These demands show that the hijackers’ goals are to secure the release of prisoners they feel are being held against their will. In order to find a solution and assure everyone’s safety, both ground and air people are needed. The scenario becomes complex and difficult. Keeping everyone alive becomes Sam and the other characters’ top priority because that is the only way to possibly secure a future for themselves and the passengers.
