This one just didn't work. Peggy's sister and husband are traveling to LA and during a bus stopover he sees an old army buddy - Vietnam this time. They talk and then he sees another guy from the unit but when he yells the guy keeps walking. The friend then says that wasn't who he thought he was, because that guy is in Singapore and wanted for going AWOL. Next thing that guy walks in on the husband in the restroom and kills him. Then Joe gets a call the sister is in danger and shows up to stop her and Peggy from being run down. After that we never see Peggy's sister again.

Joe goes to see the friend and it almost is the "small town syndrome" where bikers and a bar owner try to run Mannix off. There's a side drama with the friend and his daughter with autism, and how he's helping the other guy bring drugs in by military channels, and a speech or two about why the guy deserted.

One small highlight in this one is when the bikers try to attack Joe in a car. That's in movies a lot and always seemed stupid, pretty easy for a car to run them over. This time Joe swerves near one and he crashes, and the rest turn around to check on that guy. A funny part was when a guy with a rifle tells Joe to drop his gun as "you don't want to take on this rifle with a pistol do you" or something like that. He didn't see the other 20 episodes where Joe ducks and shoots from ankle high to hit someone way far off!!! This time Joe drops the gun only to outwit the motorcycle idiots again.

The big problem with this one was the beginning. The husband had no idea anything was going on, yet the friend volunteers that the other guy is AWOL, giving him a reason to kill the husband and wife. And he plans to get the drug money in a day or two anyway, so even if the guy reported it he would likely be long gone.
