TV show description:
This action/thriller series poses the question, “How do you bring the most powerful people in the world to their knees?” Answer: threaten the people they hold most dear.

Ballard High School educates the children of Washington, DC’s elite — top-of-their-industry CEOs, international diplomats, political power players, and even the President’s son. Students of the school are on a field trip when their bus is ambushed on a secluded rural road. The teenagers and their chaperones are taken hostage and a national crisis is ignited.

Now, some of the country’s most powerful parents are at the mercy of one vengeful mastermind. How far will they go to ensure their children’s safe return? With so many parents and dignitaries put into play with nowhere to turn and no one to trust, the unthinkable grows from the select families at risk to an entire nation at stake.

Secret Service agent Marcus Finley (Lace Gross) finds himself at the center of the crisis on his first day on the job. FBI agent Susie Dunn (Rachael Taylor) also discovers her niece — the daughter of international IT CEO Meg Fitch (Gillian Anderson) — is among the kidnapped children.

Series Finale

Episode #13 — World’s Best Dad
After getting up-to-date on Beth Ann’s kidnapping, Olsen orders Dunn and Finley to take Gibson into custody before he does something radical to get his daughter back. Meanwhile, Beth Ann’s kidnapper allows her to remove her blindfold – she sits in what looks like a long-abandoned child’s bedroom. It’s not long before she discovers what appears to be a page out of Gibson’s notebook.

Gibson flashes back to the kidnapper’s call to issue a demand that he confess his crime at the Ballard school on Sunday – or Beth Ann will die. Gibson marches downstairs to his basement murmuring to himself – he will not confess. He grabs a sledgehammer, breaks open the floor and pulls out a trunk packed with computers, passports, weapons and more. Gibson’s up to something.

Dunn and Finley arrive at Ballard just as POTUS and FLOTUS walk onto the stage for Beth Ann’s vigil, and Gibson declares his refusal to give into Beth Ann’s kidnappers. Sensing danger, Dunn and Finley escort POTUS and FLOTUS from the building. In the car on the way home, FLOTUS’ nose starts bleeding; she collapses and is rushed to the hospital. It’s not long before Dunn and Finley are interrogating Gibson about FLOTUS, prompting him to flash back. He stands in his basement applying serum onto his finger.

At the vigil, he shakes FLOTUS’ hand, rubbing onto her skin the serum that caused her stroke. Finley and Dunn proceed to the hospital to question Kyle, who says Gibson asked him to make sure his parents attended Beth Ann’s vigil. Kyle starts to understand… Gibson’s the bad guy. At that very moment, an unattended computer in Gibson’s basement sends a text message to Amber.

Still in custody, Gibson meticulously washes his hands while Olsen reviews the videotape of the vigil and notices Gibson shaking FLOTUS’ hand. Olsen immediately bursts into the interrogation room and demands to swab Gibson’s hands. Back at the hospital, POTUS informs Kyle that FLOTUS has passed away. Finley receives a call from Olsen that Amber’s missing. The FBI learns Amber withdrew $500 from an ATM. The bank’s security camera footage reveals no one kidnapped Amber; she’s driving around with Ian.

Amber and Ian have both received anonymous text messages with instructions to save Beth Ann. After exchanging the $500 for a container of diamonds, they drive to an army surplus store to hand over the diamonds and ask the man behind the counter for the third dressing room. As Amber walks around the store she spots a pile of masks identical to those worn by the kidnappers. Unhinged, Amber dons a mask, grabs a gun, and with Ian’s help, holds the storeowner on the ground demanding he turn over Beth Ann.

Luckily, Dunn and Finley barge into the store to persuade Amber to drop the gun. Amber and Ian explain everything to Dunn and Finley. Dunn tries to contact Meg, but she does not answer. Finley shows Dunn a text on Amber’s phone meant for the man behind the counter, which reads “THE DIAMONDS PAY TO KILL THE BOY AND HOLD THE GIRL.” Dunn and Finley ponder the message, thinking about all the aspects of Beth Ann’s kidnapping when they realize everything leads back to Meg. Meg has Beth Ann! That’s when a light bulb goes off. Dunn knows where her sister has stashed Beth Ann.

Meanwhile, Gibson’s two escorts receive a text to move him. In the car, Gibson surreptitiously pulls out one of his teeth and breaks it in half, which emits a noxious gas. He blows the gas to the front of the car while covering his mouth. Once he’s escaped, Gibson calls Meg demanding she release Beth Ann. Meg heads to the house where she’s keeping Beth Ann, unaware that Gibson is on her tail.

Gibson shoots Meg outside the cabin Dunn and Meg frequented as kids. Inside, he finds Beth Ann reading one of the pages of his notebook. She knows the truth. Gibson tries to tell Beth Ann he’s not responsible, but she doesn’t buy it. By the time Dunn and Finley get there, Gibson is over the edge and holding Beth Ann at gunpoint. Finley instructs Beth Ann to look into Gibson’s eyes, which allows Finley to fire a bullet into Gibson’s shoulder. Gibson releases Beth Ann, and Dunn arrests Gibson.

Gibson whispers to Dunn, “You’re a parent. You understand why I did what I did…” After the dust settles, Dunn and Meg share a moment. Meg came to the cabin knowing Dunn would come looking for her eventually. When Dunn points out Meg will go to jail for kidnapping, she responds, “But you got him. You got Gibson.” Finley reads Dunn the final task on Gibson’s list, “My family reunites and I go home.” Just then, Gibson’s computer screen lights up and sends one final text. (Courtesy NBC)

It is not coming back, NBC cancelled it, big mistake! The show was great and I watch very few shows on NBC and now they lost me completely!

I seldom watch network television shows (ex. NBC, ABC, and CBS) due to what’s being presented. The previews for CRISIS AND BELIEVE peaked my interest so I began watching from day one. I didn’t miss an episode and anticipated the up coming new season. I now learn that CRISIS has been cancelled, so, I guess it’s back to watching the cable channels instead. Seems like the only thing being aired now days is REALITY TV and my life is the only reality (not the stupid, boring, and insulting reality shows that are being presented for viewing) I need.

I have not watched anything on NBC in a long time not consistently since Fresh prince and Everytime I do, the show that end up liking gets cancelled. This happened with another NBc show as well. Crisis made me want to watch NBC again and now that it’s not on I probably won’t watch the network

Crisis was the most interesting series on television! Very well written, actors were great and never boring. Please bring it back!

Crisis was an extremely good show, it was entertaining, action packed, suspenseful and left you on pins & needles, wanting more. The show wasn’t bad, maybe it’s the promoters that did a bad job for a good show. Definitely worth a second chance with the right promotion and the right placement. This show is remarkable!

Just cannot believe NBC is axing this . Actually, was nice to see a show with some substance vs the cruddy, trashy reality shows that are seem to be overtaking the viewing these days. “Naked and Alive? ” The mentality of it all….


Vera September 17, 2014 at 12:10 pm

Crisis was a good show. Couldn’t wait for the next episode. Kept you in suspense. Bring it back


Crisis Fan September 10, 2014 at 9:30 pm

Why is it that NBC cancel stuff all the time this was a super good show it needed more push behind it I was telling Every one I knew to watch it.


Dar September 9, 2014 at 1:56 pm

Great show. I was looking forward to seeing what crisis would develop next season. Why do they always cancel the good ones?


Granville Woods August 31, 2014 at 11:50 pm

I cant believe A&E has canceled Longmier, that is two shows in two years gone, the golfing cop in Florida was also great. Longmier had decent ratings but it was still canceled . I am through with A & E that is three good shows in three years, I don’t need to get interested in any more shows on your channel , you will just canceled them


Granville Woods August 31, 2014 at 11:45 pm

Crisis was another good show that was not given a chance to make it, It had good actors and a great story line, we never even got a final episode , due to political adds breaking in, and ruining it. NBC always is behind in the ratings because you will not give good shows a chance to catch on. Bring it back, or I am through with NBC


beth August 29, 2014 at 8:33 pm

I have completely given up on TV. Every show I like is cancelled. Crisis was a great show couldn’t wait to see what happened next week. Too bad, will miss Crisis


lous smith September 3, 2014 at 10:59 am

I am also upset that this show and others that we could not wait for next week. I guess all the reality shows must come first which we do not watch.


nemo f August 12, 2014 at 6:18 pm

one of the worst shows I have ever had the misfortune of watching. This thing was so bad I doubt a vulture would eat its carcass. Horrible acting, writing, directing, story line subplots the list is endless…….
