Episode Notes
Since Steven Hill had been fired by this time, his character Dan Briggs only appears in the opening tape and briefing sequences. Those were filmed months in advanced of the actual episode and used here to give the impression the actor was still on the show.

Guest agents: heart surgeon Dr. Harrison Selby and movie director Oliver Donovan.

This episode won an Emmy for Individual Achievement in Film and Sound Editing.

Episode Quotes

Rollin: We're sorry.
Larya: Do not be. You have given me a gift even greater than life. You have permitted me to... to see beyond my death.
