Beaumont Rosewood, Annalise Villa and Ryan Slade get caught in a hostage crisis at the police station in Rosewood season 2 episode 10. For a refresher on what happened last time, read my recap of episode 9.
Rosewood season 2 episode 10 opens with a montage of everyone’s morning. Rosewood visits the beach with his girlfriend Tawnya and her daughter Kayla. Meanwhile, A man kidnaps a police officer named Officer McKinney and enters the precinct wearing his uniform.
Slade talks to a group of teens who are visiting the precinct for a tour. He turns his attention to the man from earlier, who reveals that he was only posing as Officer McKinney to hold the precinct hostage. When Villa attempts to get him to drop his weapon, the captor sets off a bomb in a vending machine. He asks them, “Do I have your attention now?”
Back at the lab, Pippy Rosewood and TMI watch a news report about the hostage situation. They’re horrified. Back at the precinct, Ira Hornstock tries to enter the building. An FBI agent named Harris refuse to admit him. Hornstock overhears the FBI agents identify the captor as Owen Panitch. When Agent Harris calls Owen, he asks for her to deliver Walter Panitch to him.
Owen looks through the precinct for any people he may have missed. He returns to the bullpen and asks if there’s a doctor. Rosewood identifies himself as a doctor and Owen tells him that Adrian the medical examiner has been shot.
Ira finds out that Walter is Owen’s brother and he’s doing time in a correctional facility. Ira says that he knows the warden of the facility and he’ll reach out to see what he can do.
Villa realizes that Owen has an accomplice who’s pretending to be a hostage. She points guns at both of them. Slade and Rosewood try to convince her to lower her weapons.
They’re interrupted by a call from Agent Harris, who offers to call the DA. Owen turns this down and says she still needs to bring his brother to him.
When the FBI doesn’t give into Owen’s demand to see his brother, Duke, the man he hired to assist with the execution of taking the precinct hostage, says no one is taking them seriously and tries to shoot one of the teens. Owen shoots Duke to stop him. Villa calls the FBI to tell them there’s a man down.
Villa tells Agent Harris that Owen only shot someone in order to protect a kid. When she hangs up the phone, Owen thanks her. She tells him, “Don’t thank me because they’re still coming in. I’ve got one more idea, but this time we do it my way.”
Villa convinces Owen to ask to speak to Ira. Ira arranges for Walter to be brought to the precinct for real. Rosewood examines him, then tells him, “I just saved your life.”
Rosewood tells Owen that Walter had a stroke and a bacterial infection in his brain, but that he’ll be okay. He asks Owen to hold up his part of the bargain and release the hostages.
When Rosewood gets home, he finds a note from Tawnya. She reveals that she was working a job the entire time and he discovers that she’s stolen all of his money.
