Palos: Hostage Crisis (2008Mar17)

This blogpost summarizes episode highlights for Carla's character, Stella.


The guests at the party start to sense that something is wrong when the palace guards start securing the area on Fabio's orders.

Enzo gets a call and informs Paola and Aldo that Fabio needs them outside to provide backup. When they try to keep Stella from going with them, she tells them they won't be able to leave the building without her now that it's been locked down.

Outside, Alessandro threatens to shoot the president unless everyone backs off and lets him escape.

Fabio shocks everyone when he shrugs off Alessandro's threat and says he'll have no trouble shooting a replaceable President to prevent Alessandro from escaping.

Alessandro calls Fabio's bluff, forcing Fabio to shoot the president in the leg so he can get a clear shot at Alessandro.

With the crisis diffused, Stella asks her father if he's okay then asks Giancarlo to call for an ambulance.

Back inside the residence, Stella puts her medical training to good use by tending to her father's bullet wound, all the while expressing her anger. When he becomes restless, she asks his staff to leave the room.

Later, Fabio approaches Stella and apologizes for having shot the President.

Stella expresses her displeasure.

She listens to Fabio's reasons, before telling him that he's lucky the President was not fatally injured, otherwise she would not hesitate to shoot him herself.

Some time later, Stella finds her father restlessly hobbling around his bedroom, and tells him he should take things easy lest he re-open his wound.

He reminds her that he's still the President and that he can't just stop working because of a minor injury. He assures her that he'll be okay, and that he's longing to get out and talk to people, including Fabio.

Stella expresses her concern about Fabio's methods, and says that with the tactics that he's willing to use, Fabio will end up killing someone sooner or later.
