In an early scene on the Andes mountainside, an U.N.C.L.E. agent stops near the top on the side of the mountain and takes refuse under an overhanging rock that creates a natural alcove to cover him as he uses his radio to report his status. When a helicopter circles above him, the camera point of view from the helicopter shows him sitting on the open field at the top of the mountain above that overhanging rock. A second later, after a rocket is launched from the helicopter at the agent, the next camera angle miraculously shows the agent now back at the alcove below the overhanging rock when the rocket strikes the ground. The strike causes an avalanche which buries the agent in the alcove on the mountainside, beneath the overhanging rock. See more »

For such an evil woman, Ann Francis again has so little to do in this episode, a continuation of episode 6.
She and her lover are back to thwart UNCLE with their weapons while hiding out in the Andes Mountains.
Again, Jill Ireland is recruited by UNCLE to thwart all this by allowing herself to be kidnapped. They even place a monitor in a necklace worn around her neck. Obviously, this is obvious so a back-up monitor has been implanted in her.
Treachery abounds here with an Andes police official again proving that money is the root of all evil.
