Solo does not get the chess move correct as he says, "tempting the Queen to rashly move out to "knight-three." This is impossible for the Queen to do. He either should have said "Bishop - three" or "knight - four." 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.
