Storyline

The A-Team has been convicted for murder and will face a firing squad within 24 hours. Murdock escapes from the V.A. hospital in a straight jacket. He and Frankie Santana force their way aboard General Stockwell's private plane. Stockwell gives them information concerning Barier Island, where the others are being held. He also visits the Team in their cell, proposing they do a specified number of missions for him (not all of them suicidal) in return for a full, presidential pardon. Written by The TV Archaeologist

In Hannibal's dream sequence, he has a grenade. Pulls the pin and throws it like a grenade. But he still has the grenade, which he throws in the next cut back.
