Episode Summary

EDIT
Tony, frustrated over Jeannie's constant use of magic to help around the house, makes her swear not to help him out anymore under any circumstances. Jeannie agrees, but it's bad timing. Seconds later, Red Chinese spies visit the Nelson home asking for Tony. They kidnap him at gunpoint, and if Jeannie uses her gifts to rescue Tony, she'll lose him as a master. Tony, meanwhile, is being held at shacks along the shoreline, where the criminals aim to make him reveal classified secrets through torture. A beautiful Chinese woman is also in on the scheme Jeannie manages to spy on the spies, reporting back to Roger (who in turn, reports to Dr. Bellows, who reports to Gen. Peterson). After several back-and-forths, Jeannie finally learns that the spies intend to kill Tony by making him drink poisoned tea. Roger convinces Jeannie to temporarily let him be his master, so she can skirt the rules and rescue Tony in time.moreless
