Kelly Gets Drugged With Heroin
25 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Avenging Angel,Kelly unwittingly becomes addicted to heroin when a released ex-con takes revenge on her by drugging her.

Frank Desmond, a heroin smuggler whom Kelly helped send to prison during her time on the force, is released after a five-year sentence. He was forced to go through withdrawal after guards caught him shooting up and sent him to solitaire, and blames Kelly for his pain. He and his friend Eddie get jobs at a diner that Kelly frequents, and drug her coffee. While she is knocked out, they sneak into her house and inject her with heroin. Meanwhile, Desmond's old boss follows him in the hopes of finding two kilos of heroin that vanished from the shipment five years earlier. He sees Desmond at Kelly's house and concludes that they conspired to hide the drugs. Thurgood's lawyer, Harold Sims, goes to talk to a ragged Kelly at the office and realizes that she is high. They kidnap her and take her to a warehouse, where they demand information about the drugs. She is stunned when they accuse her of being a user but figures out that Desmond drugged her. When she cannot provide any answers, they decide to go after Desmond. Kris, Tiffany and Bosley overhear Kelly's abduction via the phone, and Kris believes that she recognizes someone else's voice.

Kris and Tiffany trail Thurgood and Sims, while Bosley heads for the warehouse. Sims suggests that they forget the drugs and kill their prisoners before Kelly can be rescued and put them away. Kelly enlists Frank's help to stack a bunch of crates and climb out of the air duct. He claims to be too weak, but she urges him to stand up for himself and stop being a loser for a change. She stresses that she is not to blame for his problems, but will help him if they survive. They escape just as Thurgood's henchman enters intending to follow his boss's orders and kill them. He chases them across the roof, but falls into a pile of boxes after Bosley startles him. Kris and Tiffany capture Thurgood.

Here is another episode wherein Kelly is victimized by criminals just like the last episode of the show,Let Our Angel Live wherein he gets shot.Interestingly,parts of it were part of the flashback scenes in it when the Angels - Kris and Julie - were talking about how Kelly was a caring person in that particular episode.We get to see that in it and we get to increase our love for her character despite the fact that is was somewhat melodramatic in some parts during her scene during her confrontation with Frank.

Also,it makes use of the Kris-Tiffany team-up which was effective in the previous episode,Angel Go Truckin', together with Bosley.Kudos to Cheryl Ladd and Shelley Hack for their great chemistry.
