Hickman finds himself in what appears to be a bank robbery when he goes to a major bank in The Hague. He knew something was was wrong and managed to contact the team before the robbers appeared. The leader is identified as Alex Vaughn, a criminal who recently broke out of prison. While incarcerated however, he was converted into a rabid anti-capitalist. Hickman soon comes to realize that the the robbers don't seem to plan on escaping - not through the front door at any rate. In fact, he realizes that this isn't a robbery at all. Tommy McConnel recognizes one of the gang. Written by garykmcd

The glass in front of the teller cages is not bullet-proof. In 2016, in a bank with the profile of Internationale Bank Den Haag, this is unlikely. See more »

Eva Vittoria: I brought love.
Sebastian Berger: Love?
Eva Vittoria: Uh-huh. Bocconotti. "Boccone" means "mouthful," but I call them "Boccone del Amore," which means "Mouthfuls of Love."
Sebastian Berger: Oh, they're a little bit like windbeutel.
Eva Vittoria: "Windbeutel?" You know what's wrong with Germany? You don't use passion in your food names.

A Well Done Bank Job (Sort of)
2 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The team finds itself dealing with a hostage situation in a big bank in The Hague. Hickman is in the bank as a group of six people, who are terrorists rather than robbers, come in. We are led around for a while, trying to figure out what is going on. I won't spoil anything, but suffice it to say, there are human beings with human failings involved. Hickman's perceptiveness and his ability to read human nature come in handy. This is is good episode that presents some implications for the future. Louis and his wife are a constant cloud in this thing following the explosion that killed their child. Louis is so closed up that he seems almost to be destroying any chance of reconciliation.
