  • An exciting wrap-up, with a bevy of threats to the plan.

    As Part 1 of "The Slave" picked up steam, culminating with the IMF kidnapping the wife of the prince, Part 2 never lets up. Once again, the whole team swings into action - Barney and Willy go incognito to offer field support, Rollin plays an Interpol agent to steer events in the right direction, and Jim plays slave trader hoping to unload his "wife" Cinammon.

    The tension is amplified because there are a number of surprises that crop up, each potentially endangering the entire mission. What happens when one of Jim's fellow slave traders decides to cut him out of the racket? What happens if the sheik buys Cinammon before the team has a chance to switch her with the princess? Moments like this, forcing the team to think on their feet, are hallmarks of this series.

    My only complaint was the ending, in which the team reveals themselves and their plans to the good guys. I always preferred it when they just hopped in the car and took off, but the ending doesn't bring down a very strong two-part episode.moreless
