Storyline

Following that Prince Arkadi, ruler of the small principality of Valance, met, fell in love with, and finally married, Elaine Murchison, the daughter of an American ambassador, the Prince began being increasingly exposed to western ways, values, and ideas. As a result of his new wife and her American lifestyle, he began modernising and democratising his country, none of which pleased Gregor Caron, an anti-American and leader of a group known as "The Valance Red Garde". It is believed that Caron now plans to have the Princess Elaine murdered in order to stop all her western influence on her husband. Jim Phelps and his team of agents get the mission to stop this murder from ever taking place, something which however turns out to be more difficult than they first imagined.

l really enjoyed this particular episode.
19 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Having finally seen this 1989 episode of Mission lmpossible, l liked the idea of an unknown assassin stalking the team, but l was somewhat confused by the plot's execution: it appeared to me that Coyote and his female contact were originally meant to be two people but were later amalgamated into one single composite character (with the cologne he was wearing changed to perfume). Coyote even poses as a male waiter in the show's climactic sequence, a tactic both horribly dated and unnecessary by even the standards of the day. Nevertheless, this is still one of the better episodes of this version of the show, and so l give it eight stars
