In Colombia, influential drug lords have over recent years gained more and more power and more or less unleashed their own private war on the country's government. Drug baron Esteban Magdalena is responsible for the latest deed in a long campaign of terror - the murder of Judge Juan Silvero - hoping that the Colombian government will be so intimidated by his massive rule of terror that they will hand over power. Hiding away in his Colombian high security mansion, Magdalena has long been wanted in several different countries, among them the United States, for his extensive drug trafficking around the world. Jim Phelps and his team of agents get the mission to extradite Magdalena to the US, so that he can stand trial. Written by Anonymous

The one where Shannon gets amnesia
27 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The amnesia part isn't a spoiler exactly - it's the setup. And the was one of the most conflicted episodes I've seen.

The mission involves going after a drug lord. On the way to her role, posing as a singer at the drug lord's club, Shannon is in a plane crash and has amnesia.

And she has a romance with the nephew of the drug lord.

All of this derails the team's plans. They decide to focus on getting Shannon back.

This episode is noteworthy, in that it humanized Shannon's character much more than anything else. She's a bit more flirty and playful through more of the episode. She smiles a lot. After she regains her memory, she agrees to go through using her wedding as an opportunity for the team to complete their mission.

While most of the ruses in Mission Impossible are just issues of deception, we rarely feel conflicted about how ethical they are. In this case, we do.
