Hostage is the nineteenth episode of Season 5 of Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman, and the one hundred-twelfth episode of the series.
Dr. Mike finds two men, one of them hurt, in the spring house and invites them in so she can treat the hurt man. Unknown to her, the two men are wanted for robbing a bank. The two men take advantage of the situation and take her, Brian, and Katie hostage. When Sully comes home from bringing supplies to homesteaders at Cripple Creek, all Dr. Mike can do is watch as he's shot.
Sully sends Wolf to get Cloud Dancing, who sends for Matthew, who brings along Hank and Andrew. Meanwhile, Dr. Mike and Brian are trying to come up with an escape plan, without letting their captors know.
