    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Trivia: This episode opens in media res with Cinnamon infiltrating the government building, and no tape briefing or initial meeting.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (3)

      • The first draft of the script had Cinnamon actually cracking and revealing both her and Jim's names. Creator and executive producer Bruce Geller insisted that this be changed.

      • Bruce Geller was at first against doing any stories in which an IMF member gets captured. However he did not stand in the way of this episode being filmed, and later admitted it was one of his favorite episodes of Mission.

      • In real life Barbara Bain was claustrophobic, giving an extra edge to the scenes where Cinnamon is tortured through the use of several claustrophobic ploys.
