Hijack Season 1 Episode 7 Recap

The passengers were left in a state of terror and confusion in the previous episode following the sudden passing of the pilot, Robin Allen (Ben Miles). The strange woman who had shot Captain Robin Allen and was now in charge of the cockpit came into view at this point. Sam was adamant about discovering her identity and goals. The presence of the woman, named Amanda (Holly Aird), created numerous concerns because it appeared that she had no relation to the original hijackers.

Her name was Amanda, but her motives remained a mystery until a fellow traveler noticed a backpack on her seat. She ignored Sam’s attempts to speak with her on the cabin phone in favor of concentrating exclusively on piloting the aircraft.

When a passenger on the airplane admitted to being a part of the hijacking plot, a breakthrough was made. He admitted that he had smuggled guns onto the plane to assist the hijackers, but he had done it under pressure. Elody and her partner’s partner were both abducted by the plot’s mastermind, Devlin, in order to secure their cooperation. Amanda was made to act in a “fail-safe” capacity, responsible for taking over the cockpit in the event that all other plans fell through.

The complexity of the situation on board the plane made it clear that Edgar (Simon McBurney), who had been assumed to be the major enemy, was actually only a pawn in a money-making scheme. He and his accomplice John were merely pawns in a “bear raid” on the market to manipulate stock prices.

While John tried to persuade Edgar to send a message to Amanda and stop the plane from crashing, Edgar’s avarice caused him to watch the Kingdom Airlines shares fall. John’s true motivation, however, was to maximize the financial scheme’s profits, even if it meant putting the lives of the plane’s occupants in peril.

Sam feverishly tried to talk sense into Amanda as the plane’s altitude was rapidly dropping and time was running out. He highlighted the importance of the lives of the passengers and the dire implications of crashing the aircraft. Amanda felt guilty for killing Robin and was afraid of being arrested if the plane touched down. Sam had to find a means of ensuring her security and winning her cooperation.

Thanks to the Wi-Fi being restored, a fortunate turn of events occurred when a man from British Air Traffic Control was able to contact a passenger’s cell phone. Sam was contacted by Alice Sinclair, who then spoke to Home Secretary Neil and agreed to forgive Amanda in light of the situation. This guarantee was very important in getting Amanda to cooperate.

Alice expertly supervised Amanda and Sam as they cooperatively piloted the aircraft to a safe touchdown on the closest landing strip. British fighter jets were alerted to the tense situation and prepared to shoot down the plane until it was established that Amanda was in command.

The hijackers were captured by the authorities after the passengers and crew were saved. Stuart, the final hijacker still alive and driven by retaliation after losing his brother in the botched hijacking, made an effort to injure Sam. Sam, though, was able to take Stuart down and secure his arrest.

After the terrifying incidents, Sam reflected on his decisions and understood the value of family. He also realized that Danny, who was essential in protecting Sam’s son from the hitmen, was making his ex-wife happy.
