Episode Summary

EDIT
The Apes of Rath
AIRED:
Several agents have been murdered by someone with incredible strength. The only clue is an empty banana peel. It is soon deduced that the killer is an ape. However, what the CONTROL staff doesn't realize is that the killer is no ordinary ape, but an ape who has been surgically altered by Dr. Rath to look and act like a man until he hears a bell which causes him to revert to his apelike state. Not only that, but the ape who goes by the name Chuck Armstrong is Control's newest agent. After another agent is murdered, Armstrong is then assigned to protect Max.moreless
