Cinnamon poses as a psychic as part of a typically complicated plan devised by Briggs. The IMF's target is a U.S. businessman who has fled to South America, where he can't be touched legally. He has taken control of a company that holds patents vital to U.S. security interests. The businessman intends to sell the patents to an intelligence operative of an Eastern Bloc nation. The IMF intends to get control of the company back from the businessman. The plan calls for Rollin to impersonate a gangster, Barney to use slight of hand and the help of a respected judge.

The end of the Dan Briggs era
4 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the last episode with Dan Briggs. Steven Hill only appears in the opening and the planning of the caper. In the last 4 episodes, Briggs was only really in one of them and not even doing the opening once as Cinnamon takes the mission. In retrospect, it is obvious that Hill would be replaced the following year. This episode in one of the few in the first season that IMF crew didn't have a major problem with their plan. In this one, the only problem concerned Barney, and it was a minor one headed off by Cinnamon. The cast is one of the bigger ones for known TV names, although Milton Seltzer was a guest star in the final credits and Richard Anderson and Paul Mantee were also starring after the Seltzer credit. The best part of the episode was the red herring the viewer is fed as to how the group will accomplish it's mission. Once you see how it was done, you smile and say "ahhh! I should have known." And then you smile with the IMF crew as the leave with the same smile you have and await season 2.
