This episode is about drug use, set in Washington where Dan Farrell (Robert Stack) attends a government seminar. Robert Finch, a presidential advisor, appears as himself in a scene. Plot elements include a rehabilitation center for addicts, run by ex-junkie Julie Harris; an article Farrell has written for his magazine, using the kids in the center, but not quoting them by name; and a Senate hearing on narcotics which subpoenas him and tells him to name names. Sal Mineo appears as an undercover policeman, James Gregory as a senator, Edward Andrews as a Congressman who doesn't mind putting a bit of pressure on Farrell.
At his college reunion, Glenn (Gene Barry) meets a lovely, mysterious girl who claims to be part of his past. To compound the mystery, he later learns that the lady has apparently been dead for over 25 years. It's all highly contrived, but absorbing and well done, except for the overdrawn college reunion scenes.
Magazine writer Farrell (Robert Stack) looks into the bizarre bombing death of an eccentric mod artist and the art gallery owner who plans to capitalize on the death by showing his works. Clu Gulager plays the role of the artist.
Dan Farrell's (Robert Stack) name and reputation are very much part of a religious crusade which supposedly raises money for worthy causes. When a shadow of suspicion falls on the movement, Dan realises he's as much on the line as the Rev. Rondel Payden (William Shatner), the spiritual leader of the crusade. The plot isn't too unusual but the characters are well drawn and played by a competent cast. In addition to Shatner, there are Dina Merrill, as the reverend's wife, and Howard Duff as the ever - present promoter who handles the loot.
