Due to the apparent resurfacing of "The Candle", an arch villain from 1969, Ida unfreezes the '69 version of the middleman (Kevin Sorbo), supposedly to thwart the threat. But, unbeknownst to the Middleman, Wendy, and Ida, their biggest threat isn't the Candle, but something much closer to home that endangers their partnership and even their very lives!

Quotes

Wendy Watson: Every time I get into a relationship, I can always visualize how it's going to end. But with Tyler, I can't. It's totally killing me. Do you have any idea what that's like?
The Middleman: No. Sounds like something out of one of those hateful independent films. This is exactly why I stick to westerns.

What an awesome episode!(May contain spoilers)
18 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know the series is not getting great ratings,but this particular episode really delivered,as far as I'm concerned. The main reason for that is Kevin Sorbo. His portrayal of Guy Goddard,aka Middleman 69,was simply fantastic! Here is a guy,thawed out after 40 years to take on his old archnemesis,The Candle,but ends up retired after breaking the #1 Middleman rule(Never Use Violence Except to Save the World)during his interrogation of a young man who now has possession of The Candle's melting ray gun! He then decides to kill the current Middleman,frame The Candle and take Wendy as his new apprentice. He then proves that chivalry is not dead when he sacrifices himself to save the current Middleman. At times,Goddard was very James Bond-like and Kevin played that very well.
