TV show description:
In this suspense drama, Doctor Ellen Sanders (Toni Collette) is a premiere surgeon who’s scheduled to operate on the President (James Naughton). She’s thrust into a political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by a rogue FBI agent, Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott). He orders her to assassinate the President by causing his death on the operating table.

Carlisle’s highly skilled accomplices include his brother-in-law Kramer (Rhys Coiro), whose loyalty to Carlisle will be tested; quick-tempered and intimidating Archer (Billy Brown), an ex-military man with a razor-sharp tongue; and the only woman involved, Sandrine (Sandrine Holt), a mysterious last-minute replacement to the team.

With Ellen’s family’s life in imminent danger, she faces an incomprehensible moral dilemma. Can she save her overbearing husband Brian (Tate Donovan), her secretive daughter Morgan (Quinn Shephard), and her not-so-innocent son Jake (Mateus Ward)?

Series Finale

Episode #15 — Endgame
On the day of the President’s surgery, the various plots are in motion. Just before the surgery begins, Ellen is cornered by the First Lady, who finally sees through Ellen’s lies about her husband’s condition and forces her to tell the truth about the assassination plot.

Ellen spills the secrets Kincaid has been keeping from his wife and she agrees to help get the bone marrow out of the hospital. Blair’s squad of hired terrorists move into position after passing themselves off as Secret Service agents, and they launch their diversionary attack just after Ellen nicks an artery during surgery.

Once Ellen is alone with the President and Logan, she gives Logan a sedative, extracts the bone marrow, and prevents the President from bleeding out on the operating table. Once the terrorist threat is subdued, Ellen takes the bone marrow to Nina, who accepts it and apologizes for everything Duncan did to her family.

Meanwhile, Duncan schemes with Vanessa to outwit Blair and free his family. He corners Blair at gunpoint at a fundraising banquet and demands that Blair’s men release Nina and Sawyer.

Once they’ve been released, Blair lashes out, forcing Duncan to shoot and kill him. Duncan then confronts Archer, who has captured the rest of the Sanders family and demands payment for his services.

The two battle in a brutal fistfight with Archer coming out on top, but Kramer arrives just in time to save Duncan and kill Archer.

Duncan then reunites with Nina and Sawyer briefly, saying goodbye before turning himself in to the police for his actions.
First aired: January 6, 2014.

I loved this show. I was just checking to see when it was coming back and saw it has been cancelled. Why do they always cancel the good shows?

I was extremely disappointed to learn Hostages has been cancelled. It was my favorite weekly show. But then I figured it would be. All the really great shows end up getting cancelled. It had a great cast and you never feel asleep during this show. It really kept you on the edge of your seat. PLEASE bring it back! Others have brought back series that were announced as being cancelled after coming to their senses or having enough people write in. Please think about this one. It is one of the BEST shows on the air!
Thank you.
