FBI takeover, Fall of Hans Gruber
Although Robinson doesn't jeopardize people's lives like Richard Thornburg, he is inadvertently halting progress with futile terrorist negotiation. Later, his job is soon taken over by the FBI, headed by Special Agent Johnson and Agent Johnson. Now under their control, Robinson becomes very concerned when Special Agent Johnson sternly tells the electrician to shut down Nakatomi Plaza's power completely (except for the building's emergency lighting). He later watches the roof of the Nakatomi Plaza exploded by Hans and the helicopter (also caught in the explosion) carrying both Special Agent Johnson and Agent Johnson, commenting that they need more FBI presence. Later on, he hears McClanes then-wife Holly screaming as she is being dragged out of the window by Hans but McClane saves her by unhooking her watch sending Hans to his death; Robinson hopes he's not a hostage. When all but two of the terrorists are dead, Robinson sees McClane coming out of the building and attempts to charge him with destruction of property, interfering with police business, and the murder of sleazy businessman Harry Ellis, although he winces when McClane steps forward, as if to strike him. After Powell kills Karl to save McClane and Holly, Robinson orders his men to search the building for the others. It's assumed afterwards that Robinson apologized to McClane and was grateful to him for stopping the terrorists.
