Melrose Place: "Buona Sera, Mr. Campbell: Part 1" *Decent Ws Web Rip*

In this episode, Amanda Woodward (Heather Locklear)  is kidnapped by some mobsters and is seen in a limo blindfolded with a white cloth, her hands duct taped in front of her. Her cellphone rings and is causally discarded out the window by the thug watching her. She's taken to a remote cabin in the hills, unloaded from the car, un-blindfolded, and after making the ubiquitous ransom call, she's put up in a bedroom.

Left to her own devices, Amanda figures out that there's a way to remove the hinges on a window in her room. After knocking out one of the kidnappers with a frying pan, ( as he was bringing her breakfast), she pries open the window and makes a mad dash for freedom. She's quickly recaptured and brought back.

Not taking any more chances, the kidnappers securely tie Amanda to a chair with ropes in the front room of teh cabin before setting off to collect their ransom. A discarded beer bottle gets her attention, and so with some struggling Amanda kicks the bottle off and breaks it. She gets on teh floor and creeps her way over to the largest piece. although she does cut herself in the process, Amanda also cuts the ropes free and escapes in the pouring rain.

*There's an off-and-on chase in Part 2, but she's never re-captured by the kidnappers.*
