Episode Summary

EDIT
A rich widow, pressured by insurance investigators about the repeated disappearances of her jewelery, hires Charlie's Angels to solve the mystery. The girls get their first clue when the daffy old lady tells them that her dead husband manages her business affairs from the grave through a medium named Madame Dorian.
Kelly assumes the identity of a rich Texas widowed oil heiress; Jill becomes her friend from the Lone star state and Bosley, their French chauffeur. Unbeknownst to the others, Madame Dorian's male assistant hypnotizes Kelly as he had done with the previous widows - to get financial information from her. During the trance, Kelly reveals her true identify as a private investigator and the abusive matron who ran the orphanage where Kelly was raised.
Realizing that the con game has been uncovered, he programs Kelly to perceive Jill as a childhood "bogeyperson" so he can attempt a getaway. The hypnotized Kelly helps in his escape by keeping Charlie's team busy trying to stop her from killing Jill.

    I think this episode had the Angels using detective strategies like going undercover. However, Kelly psychological vulnerabilities puts her at a disadvantage. While under hypnosis the hypnotist is able to bring Kelly back to the time she was in an orphanage. The con artist/hypnotist tries to program Kelly into thinking that her orphanage matron is really Jill. This is to allow the hypnotist to get away and for Kelly to kill her matron, who is Jill. Jill is able to break through the programming and save both her and Kelly's lives. Kelly and Jill are able to capture the hypnotist.moreless
