With his leg in plaster, Steed recovers at ‘Department S’, a high-security convalescent home. But after Tara decides to pay Steed a visit, the facility's guard is soon exposed as a traitor, and he loses the key to the defence system in the surrounding defensive minefield, effectively trapping Steed and Tara inside. When they discover that an old enemy is planning to exact his revenge against Steed at high-noon, Steed and Tara ask the other patients for help, but all but the heavily-bandaged Sunley refuse. As the 12 o’clock approaches, Steed and Tara frantically plan for the coming confrontation…
