Episode Summary

EDIT
The Chameleon
AIRED:
On a dark and stormy night in Washington, a military base is infiltrated. Leaving two soldiers stunned, the intruder steals a 4-Star General's uniform. The theft was preformed by The Chameleon, a man with micro-molders implanted under his skin; allowing him to take on the appearance of whoever he touches. Back at Warfield, our heroes are preparing for a feild trip to Washington DC. IQ brings along and FM cassette player and pair of head phones rigged up as a homing device, and (to overcome Trevor's fear of flying) builds a parachute into the lining of Trevor's long underwear. Unfortunately, Tracy is unable to come along; her passport has expired, but James Jr. promises her he'll take pictures. Upon arriving in DC, Mitchel, James Jr., IQ, Gordo, Trevor and Phoebe run into Lieutenant Shelly Kaysing, on her way to inform General Duke Armstrong about the theft at the military base. Shelly offers the group a ride into town, and with the hour she has before she has to meet the General at the Pentagon, gives them a tour of the city. The tour leads them to the George Washington monument, but no sooner than James Jr. and the Lieutenant get inside the elevator, a old woman runs in and closes the door behind IQ, Gordo, Trevor and Phoebe. After reaching the top of the building, Bond and Shelly admire the view when suddenly the old woman pushes them both out the window. Both of them wind up hanging off the side of the gigantic monument hanging for dear life. The old woman wasn't a woman at all -- it was The Chameleon. The shape-shifting terrorist leaves the two to die, but after a few minutes Gordo and the others get to the top of the tower. Gordo grabs the Lieutenant and pulls her to safety, but James Jr. falls further down. Holding him by his ankles, Gordo lowers Trevor down to grab James Jr. But Trevor and James Jr. are too heavy for him, and James Jr. orders Gordo to lets go and both James Jr. and Trevor fall. They both survive using Trevor's hidden parachute. As they float through the sky, Bond sees the Chameleon escaping in a brown van. They land on the roof of the moving vehicle; and Trevor ends up getting caught in a tree. James Jr. rides on the roof until the van stops at a motel. He follows the Chameleon up to Room 311. Looking through the key hole, Bond witnesses the Chameleon putting on the stolen uniform. Bond overhears the villian discussing his plan with his two henchmen: A new high-tech body armour prototype is arriving at the Pentagon, The Robot Armoured Tactical Soldier (R.A.T.S.) a giant walking/rocket-powered assault unit. Complete with ballistic armour and enough firepower to start a small war, any human being wearing it would be rendered invulnerable. By impersonating General Armstrong, The Chameleon will be able to steal the R.A.T.S. prototype and sell it to the highest bidder: S.C.U.M. Disguising himself as a waiter and posing as room service, James Jr. enters the Chameleon's bedroom. James Jr. gets identified but defeats Chameleon's two guards. Meanwhile, The Chameleon tries to escape the motel. IQ, Shelly and the others arrive, having traced the signal from the FM cassette player IQ gave James Jr. They split up to search for The Chameleon, and Trevor gets to him first, but freaks out at the sight of the Chameleon's face-morphing and winds up hiding under a bed. The police arrive, not knowing The Chameleon has taken on appearance of Trevor. He attacks two police officers with a lamp and escapes out the window. Trevor winds up being blamed and arrested for the attack. Trevor is taken to jail, but James knows it was The Chameleon who attacked the cops. James Jr. and Shelly drive to the Pentagon's test hangar to warn General Armstrong about the Chameleon's plot to steal the R.A.T.S. body armour, but they are too late. Fighting from the controls of the R.A.T.S. exo-suit, The Chameleon attacks them. James Jr. then takes control of a tank to stop him. During the battle, the sprinkler system is set off, and he water causes the micro-molders in The Chameleon's body to short circuit, electrocuting him. He falls from the armor, in it's path, and is crushed beneath it. After Trevor gets out of jail, General Duke Armstrong allows Lieutenant Shelly Kaysing to give our heroes a VIP tour of the city. When Mitchell asks him what he was up to, James Jr. just replies that he was "checking out the many faces of Washington D.C."moreless
