Gruber interrupts the love fest to tell McClane he knows who he is.
The reporters listening in hear the name and decide to investigate this "McClane" dude.
Gruber puts Harry on the phone, who chats up McClane as if they're old friends.
All buddy-buddy-like, he tells McClane to stand down.
McClane knows this means bad news for hairy Harry. He tells him to fess up to Gruber that they barely know each other. He's trying to save his life.
After a bit more discussion, Gruber shoots Harry, much to McClane's distress.
But there's no way he's giving up the detonators.
Deputy Chief of Police Dwayne T. Robinson is pissed again. He thinks McClane allowed Hairy Harry to be killed.
Powell's all, dude, do you not see what's going on here?
Hans interrupts with a somewhat menacing message over the radio: he wants a bunch of "comrades-in-arms" all over the world freed. He lists off a bunch of separatist groups and demands that the cops free their members.
But it's clearly a load of crap. He's simply distracting the police and furthering his own plan. Once again we're reminded that the dude is all about the dough.
Hans checks in with Theo. Only one more lock to go before they hit number seven.
Meanwhile, McClane radios Powell, and they both agree that Hans is slinging a whole lot of horse manure.
