An Angel's Life In Danger
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When an old friend is targeted to be killed, he leaves an urgent message for Charlie, warning him that someone is out to destroy one of his private detectives in Angels Belong In Heaven.

Tom Norton, who owes Charlie a favor, leaves an answering machine message warning that an acquaintance has hired a hit man to kill one of the Angels. Before he can identify the target, the assassin shoots him to death. Sabrina,Kelly and Kris take the tape to a police expert, who concludes that the call came from the airport. They find the body in a phone booth. Kelly takes her house guest, longtime friend Sally Miles, to a hotel out of concern for her safety. Someone forces Bosley's car off the road with Kris and Sabrina aboard, leading them to draw the conclusion that one of them must be the intended victim. Kris gets a scare when she sees someone following her car, but discovers that he just wants to take her picture. The assassin shoots at Sabrina; she finds it suspicious that the bullets struck her tires, and wonders if he might have missed intentionally. Bosley discovers that Norton had a connection with John Gorman, a passenger on a flight that arrived just before Norton was killed. Gorman eavesdrops on Kelly and Sally from the hotel room next door. The hit man kidnaps Kelly outside her house and demands details of her conversations with Sally. He stupidly leaves bullets on a coffee table, and Kelly pilfers one while he ransacks her apartment. She eventually retrieves her gun and shoots him out the window, where Kris is waiting to discourage any further attempts on Kelly's life. Bosley prevents Gorman from escaping,and a stunned Sally arrives to see her fiancé hauled away in handcuffs. Kelly had busted him five years earlier for romancing a wealthy woman and bilking her out of her fortune with phony investment opportunities.He had planned to do away with Kelly before she could warn Sally about his past.

The Angels were a target?Who among them was?Later,we find out that it was Kelly.At the time this was shown,it was original and refreshing as it kept the viewers at bay as to who among them was the target as we have seen Sabrina,Kelly and Kris protect themselves from being killed.Although this plot has been repeated in the next season with Kelly also being a target,it was a good one when it was first shown on television.But one question about the plot of the episode though. Weren't the Angels recruited by Charlie as they were performing "hazardous" duties while they were working as a police as shown in the opening credits with Kelly helping kids cross the streets,Kris answering phone calls and Sabrina giving tickets to parked cars?Obviously,the Angels went to Charlie for higher pay and they definitely had experience in crime fighting as well aside from performing the so-called "hazardous" duties like helping kids,answering phone calls and giving tickets.Also,it is good to see Kelly fire her gun for the first time in the series.
