Mild-mannered hotel manager Lisa Reisert, on her way home from her grandmother's funeral, is seated for an overnight flight next to charming, affable [[UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper Jackson]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Rippner]]. Over the course of the flight, Rippner reveals himself to be a PsychoForHire acutely interested in Lisa's career... especially with the Secretary of Homeland Security (and his family) staying at her hotel. Trapped in close proximity to Rippner and informed that one of his associates is holding her father (Creator/BrianCox) hostage, Lisa attempts to keep her father safe and stop Rippner's assassination plot.

* BeneathTheMask: Rippner is charming when he wants to be, but the entire thing is a charade and not his real self. Once he reveals what a bad person he is, he doesn't bother to maintain the facade around Lisa, and it's completely gone by the [[VillainousBreakdown end.]]

* AbhorrentAdmirer: The blond woman who flirts with Rippner on the plane. She's not necessarily unattractive, but Rippner ignores her in favor of Lisa.
** In a sense, Rippner is an odd form of this for Lisa. She's initially attracted to him, but as he reveals himself to be a cold-hearted killer, she naturally becomes repelled by him. He still seems genuinely interested in her, though.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassBystander: Rippner was likely too occupied with Lisa to notice any of the other passengers on the plane. This turned out to be a mistake, because a little girl sitting near them overhears him threatening Lisa, and trips him when she sees him chasing her.
