When Edmund Bryce (Roderick Cook), a major company executive, is shot dead by live bullets at a paintballing course suspicion falls on his former colleagues. The initial evidence points towards Arvin Swenson (Anthony De Longis), but additional information brings both Nakamichi (Glen Chin) and Durward Monroe (John Paragon) into the picture.
While Sledge manages to obtain an invitation to the next paintballing trip, Dori ponders whether all three might have been working together – an idea so abhorrent that Captain Trunk is taken aback. Out on the course Hammer comes face to face with the killer, office secretary Tina Clanton (Lisa Robins) – Bryce’s scorned ex-lover – and a showdown ensues.
The episode was directed by Dick Martin in the second of his three episodes, while Chris Ruppenthal penned his last of four stories for the show.
