Plot Overview

In an unknown,undisclosed place,a secret meeting is being held by criminals who had being brought down by The A-Team. Having lost so much because of The A-Team, these men have decided to rid themselves of Team before it cost any of them anymore setbacks. They hire Major Douglas Kyle, a mercenary who for the price of $1 Million Dollar per man, Kyle, and his fellow mercenaries will eliminate The A-Team.

The A-Team meanwhile are getting into shape with military-style training. Hannibal feels that they have been geting sloppy on their jobs of late. Retraining will put them back into shape. Kyle, and his A-Team like badguys use A-Team weaknesses against our heroes. They use a pretty woman to lure Face into a motel Room, they use a trained Dog that pretended to be hurt to bring Murdock to its pretend rescue, and they drugged B.A.'S milk to render him unconsciousness.

Hannibal had also drank some of the milk, but he managed to escape capture. He then contacts Tawnia who gets in touch with Maggie Sullivan, a woman that Hannibal had a brief liaison with on a previous episode, who is also a doctor. They both arrive to assist Hannibal, and after helping his Team escape, they proceed to go after Kyle, and his squad. It is The A-Team's turn to take out Kyle,and his men...their way.
