The final episode of the series. Solo is taken before Kingsley and his 'seven wonders' and the plan is spelt out to him. He is appalled. As he stands in front of a firing squad - with the newly-captured Illya and Steve - Dr.Garrow tries to save them, only to lose his own life in the process. It is then decided to use the docility gas on the UNCLE men. Margitta drops her bombshell - the entire project is THRUSH-funded. Whereas Kingsley is a devout believer in the essential goodness of Man, Webb thinks Humanity is dirt, and only respects the firm hand of authority. A race against time ensues to stop THRUSH finally taking over the world - without so much as firing a single shot...

It is interesting to note how much much this story resembles the plot of 'In Like Flint' released in cinemas the year before. Hal Fimberg's script also focuses on a group of well-meaning people ( in that case, Fabulous Face ) attempting to change the world for what they think is the better, only for an outside force to try to subvert it to their own ends. The climax sees Solo and Kuryakin escaping from the base amidst Kingsley's men collapsing ( they've been drugged by THRUSH ) like puppets whose strings have been cut. No love interest for either Solo or Kuryakin, which is odd for an UNCLE adventure. Again dear Leslie Nielsen provides a moment of unintentional comedy as General Harmon struggles to escape from Kingsley's gas chamber. As the devious 'Margitta', Eleanor Parker enjoys herself hugely, while Inger Stratton is good enough to eat as 'Anna'. The final scene sees Solo, Waverly, and Illya watching as a coffin is loaded aboard an UNCLE jet. Many see it as symbolic of the end of the show itself. Bad scheduling certainly hastened its demise ( it was up against 'Here's Lucy' and 'Gunsmoke' ), but the demise of the spy fad should not be overlooked either. Only 'Mission: Impossible' survived, and that was by reinventing itself as a crime show. The Gold Key comics continued beyond the show's cancellation, as did the Ace novels. In 1983, 'The Return Of The Man From UNCLE: The Fifteen Years Later Affair' was screened on U.S. television, but was only a one-off. Talk of a new movie seems to have stalled. One week after UNCLE left the airwaves, Leo G.Carroll made a surprise appearance as 'Waverly' in an edition of 'Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In'. Dressed as a waiter at a party, he calls Solo and Kuryakin on a communicator pen: "Come quickly! I think I've found THRUSH Headquarters at last!". A nice gag, and sadly the last time he played the role.
