  • One of the top 10 episodes of the series! Above average acting and deeper emotional complexities than most TV storylines of the time.

    One of the best episodes of the series finds Jaime on an emotional roller coaster when it appears that her deceased mother has returned to Ojai from the dead. Effective acting by Lindsay Wagner and guest star Barbara Rush help cover-up a few obvious plotholes. More emotionally complex than a vast majority of the series's episodes with fun action sequences and touching drama. Pivotal episode in that it explains the back story of Jaime's parents and further develops Helen Elgin (Jaime's guardian and Steve Austin's mom). One of several appearances by Sam Chew as Oscar Goldman's right hand man. This episode shows the series at its freshest and before it became a formulaic "mission of the week" mess.
