Not much. A revolution in the Orient, a multi-million dollar train robbery in England, five kidnapped scientists and a plot to melt the polar ice caps.
Good. I think I'll take the afternoon off.

The conclusion of "The Prince of Darkness Affair" is a letdown from part one, lacking the womanizing amusement of John Dehner's performance, Bradford Dillman's workmanlike Luther Sebastian rather more predictable this time, though exceptionally cold blooded in the casual way he dispatches loyal henchmen. The cliffhanger ending finds the torpedo hitting its mark, but Solo, Kuryakin and Annie Justin (Carol Lynley) escaping with serial-like ease, off to Los Angeles to find the whereabouts of the missing Sebastian, whose lonely ex-wife Laura (Julie London) can expect little company from an impatient Solo. Two Third-Way agents bite the dust, allowing Solo to infiltrate the gang with his hair dyed a suitable blonde, enabling him to orchestrate the theft of the rocket that Sebastian needs to launch his 'thermal prism' into orbit, so that the organization can dictate terms for its ultimate domination of the earth. Their priest (John Carradine) is an old man who hasn't spoken in 20 years, awaiting the exact moment of triumph for his followers, who alas never see the day when it can happen. Slightly less exciting than its predecessor, but still an example of UNCLE at its best this final season.
