Episode 105 – 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 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.
