Storyline

Former cop turned bodyguard Frank Waldeck arranges a murder attempt on his filthy rich employer Victoria Larkin and himself for which he frames a mentally instable fan of hers who he has 'commit suicide'. When she's committed to Community General, reason for an impractically strict security regime, Dr. Sloane soon smells a rat and suspects him, especially when the richest stock criminal is also brought in, but who is the intended next victim and how can it be saved?

Sloan Plays Wei-ch'i (Go) to beat criminal
22 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In this episode Mark Sloan (Dick van Dyke) has to play Wei-ch'i (Weiqi), more commonly known as Go. He suspects bodyguard Frank Waldeck (Michael Beck) of not being all he seems and plays Go against him to try and suss his strategy. You can find out more about Go at usgo.org or britgo.org

As usual in the best episodes it features a beautiful woman patient who wants to get Mark to work for her, lots of wit and humour and mystery, as well as the odd dead body. Very clever use of Go strategy within the plot.

Excellent episode.
