Airwolf Wiki
Overview   Credits   Transcript    

Desperate Monday was the 50th episode of Airwolf and the 17th episode of Season 3. It first aired on 2/8/1986. There is plenty of ground action for Caitlin and flying for Dominic and Hawke. Archangel plays a central role and has an unnamed aide. For once, Airwolf never fires its weapons but achieves its mission.

Plot synopsis

During Cate's sorority reunion on board the Queen Mary, some men turn up and try to kidnap Barbara Scarelli. The kidnap attempt goes wrong and ends up as a standoff and a hostage situation. It doesn't look like Airwolf's powerful weaponry can help here. [1]
