Special agents West and Gordon are sent to the mortuary to identify the body of their arch enemy, Dr. Miguelito Loveless. A mourner at the morgue takes a key from the wrist of the corpse and West traces it back to a safe deposit box containing instructions to contact an attorney. When West makes contact, he also meets Dr. Leibknicht, the look-alike relative of Loveless. Written by
When Loveless' uncle is introduced to West, his name is given as "Doctor Liebknicht". Translated literally from German, this is "love-not" (although in German, "nicht" is spelled without the 'k'), which means the same as Loveless. See more »

A lot of the West series is about humor & a wink of the eye. While this Loveless episode is not as large an action episode as some, it does twist the plot along with a Tickle, a parrot & a grin. It is entertaining which is what this series is all about and has some clever gadgets & touches.
The opening sequence is Loveless funeral where he appears to be dead in his casket at a funeral home when West & Artie come in. Then, they get in a fight with some folks at the home and start a huge fire which appears to incinerate the body. While it is never explained, how Lovelesses body gets out of this situation, it is no surprise to veteran West viewers that he does escape even though he is lying there dead.
The valuable clues that lead to the Loveless will and to the introduction of West & Artie to his twin brother are quite entertaining. As usual, Loveless has more in mind than it originally appears including setting himself up to perform brain surgery on Jim West. Fortunately, Artie comes in to help West out of the situation before the knife can get started.
