105: Away Game: Christmas Eve Incident at Nakatomi Plaza

Episode 105 – Holiday Special – On Christmas Eve in 1988, after killing two security guards, gunmen burst into the Los Angeles offices of the Nakatomi Corporation in Century City at the newly opened Nakatomi Plaza building. The 30 plus hostages were all attendees of the Nakatomi Christmas party happening on the 30th floor. What at first appeared to be a terrorist incident was found out to be FAKE NEWS. Iit was actually an elaborate heist, led by German born criminal mastermind Hans Grüber. What Grüber and his group did not count on was the heroism of one partygoer, John McLane, who almost singlehandedly foiled the plan. The whole thing comes off like the plot of an action movie
