What an episode. Only weak link is Charles Schlatter (Dr. Jesse Travis) who is too stupid to realize his father Dane Travis (Robert Culp—I Spy) really is a spy. It takes a stay at a safe house with Cinnamon Carter (Barbara Bain—Mission Impossible) and a meet with his father's friend John Garrison (Patrick Macnee—The Avengers) to convince him. But a meet with Alexander Drake (Robert Vaughn—The Man from Uncle) goes south and Drake is killed. It's clear that Dane is on a hit list, but who is pulling the strings? Only one left from "The Office" is Jim Kesler (Phil Morris— reboot of Mission Impossible and real life son of Greg Morris—Mission Impossible). Can he help or is it too late.

What follows is some derring-do with the new team—Dane, Cinnamon, and Jesse—off to find the responsible party. Lucky that Jesse arraigned for a backup so that Steve Sloan and Dr. Mark Sloan arrive to spirit the new team off to temporary safety. But who discarded Dane and his original partner when they were involved in an old project: TurnKey. Is it the Iranians, the Iraqis, or is it personal?

Let's just say the rogue agent really isn't a chip off the old block. Must have been a great episode to film by bringing together so many stars from the great old spy shows.
