Storyline

The kidnapping of a woman who is married to a wealthy astrologer -- and the appearance of her kidnapper, who claims she is being held in a room with a ticking time bomb -- spur the woman's husband to bash in the kidnapper's head with a vase, leaving McCloud, Clifford and Broadhurst with a limited time to determine where the woman is and who is really behind the kidnapping.

Mr. Rafer [Diller in credits]: I'll tell you, sir, if they don't stop shooting those alien gamma rays into my head, I could be seriously disturbed, injured. I need help, sir.
Sam McCloud: Yeah... yeah, protection against, eh... gamma rays. Now I... You, you need help all right, you do indeed.

As this episode opens Chief Clifford has Marshal McCloud dealing with the nut complaints over at police headquarters. After giving some of his sage and sagebrush advice to Elisha Cook, Jr. about using wax paper to end those alien transmissions to his brain he gets involved in a real case of kidnapping.

Peter Haskell has grabbed Louise Latham the wife of celebrity astrologer Sebastian Cabot and wants some big bucks for her. If not she's all rigged up with a bomb set to detonate by 7:00 PM.

It's an interesting story which I'm not going to begin to tell because it's nicely thought out. Susan Strasberg turns out to be the key to the whole affair, she's Haskell's girlfriend.

I will say though there is a very funny scene with Dennis Weaver and Jill Jaress who plays Cabot's secretary. He manages to worm out of her information that confirms his suspicions.

He also risks the wrath of Chief Clifford in following through his theory. J.D. Cannon was never more put out in the series than he is in this episode. He's actually ready to send McCloud back to Taos.

But our Marshal as he always does gets it right.
