Rollin and Cinnamon have to go undercover to recover a wire reel with vital information. To trace the path of the dead agent who hid it, Rollin must place his own life in danger and recreate the incident.
Dan arrives at a hotel and asks a maid to inspect one of the private suites. She lets him into a room and gives him a sealed record wrapped in a towel. Dan is instructed to turn on the lights to review some developing photos and is informed that a reel of recording wire contains the details of a chemical warfare project being used. A U.S. agent was carrying the reel and made it to a lakeside village, but was discovered and killed by the secret police. The country’s police have been unable to find the reel so the IMF must find it, before either the police or other enemy agents who also want the info can discover the reel...Read the full recap
Only Rollin and Cinnamon feature in this episode. Dan appears very briefly during the initial briefing, and Barney and Willy do not appear. Barney does get a mention as the person providing Cinnamon's cameras.
Dan: Think, and Rollin, don’t limit your thinking. He didn’t. This plan is designed to get you into the same kind of spot under the same kind of pressure. And hope inspiration hits.
Rollin: And not bullets.
The briefing comes on a record contained in an airtight packet. The record disintegrates 60 seconds after the seal is broken. The photos for the mission are in photographer's developer trays.
