Serious episode...and ED's back!
24 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode has Mundy sent to Japan to retrieve a laser from Red Chinese agents. Accompanying him, to his dismay, is SIA scientist Dr. Edwina Hopkins, played to the hilt by the talented Sharon Acker. The entire episode is done seriously, with a sense of doom looming over it, as if Mundy has a feeling this might be the mission that does him in--and he might be right. What makes this one so good is Acker and Wagner's chemistry--the third, and best pairing of their characters. Mundy does not want her there, too dangerous--and she has to constantly remind him she is SIA, for better or worse (for 1969, the start of the woman's lib movement, the idea of a smart and capable woman equally risking her life for her country was cutting edge stuff). Ms. Acker STEALS the show here, hands down. I remember seeing this episode when it first aired as a child. Let me just say the lovely Sharon gave a 6 year old some funny feelings! My alternate title: "Well, if your going to get locked in a safe..."
