Episode Summary

EDIT
My Friend, My Enemy
AIRED:

A Communist agent, Karl Maur, spots Paris on vacation, knocks him out and turns him over to Dr. Tabor, who is a brain specialist and mind control expert. Unable to break Paris, Tabor blanks out Paris' memories and uses an implanted electrode to program him to attack Jim by convincing the disguise expert that Jim represents an authority figure, similar to the ones he has lost two women to in the past.

  • One of the all-time best! Right up there with "Stephan Miklos" for best of the series.

    You can feel the tension as the episode unfolds. As usual, Leonard Nimoy as Paris is awesome. The whole episode is set against time as Jim must figure out what happened to Paris when he was captured; he knows something was done to him, but just not what. There is a lot of tension as Jim knows that he may not be able to "clear" Paris to return to the IMF and that that would ruin Paris. This episode showcases the classic Jim Phelps in that he is willing to ruin Paris if he can't figure out what happened, but at the same time, it's clear that he really doesn't want to, and is willing to go the extra mile and bend the rules a bit so he won't have to.moreless
