Episode Summary

EDIT

John Darcy, codename "Kitara," leads a liberation movement in the African country of Bocamo and has been inadvertently captured by the ruthless Colonel Kohler. Kohler plans to torture Kitara, who if he confesses his true identity will result in the destruction of the entire movement. Kohler is after a truck full of government gold bullion Kitara stole. Jim and Doug play agents while Barney is captured and gets the location of the bullion from Kitara and gets it to Jim. Before his capture, Barney puts a rigged bulb in Kohler's UV sterilizer and Dana gives the man a drug that causes his skin to blacken, and Kohler soon believes that he's secretly a black native.
