  • Part 1 of the Lisa Galloway trilogy.

    Jaime goes on vacation in the Bahamas only to be drugged and left for dead at the bottom of the ocean. Meanwhile, in Washington, her perfect double arrives at the OSI claiming to have changed her mind about the vacation and insisting that she be given access to top secret info. Oscar agrees to the request, allowing the double to photograph files and deliver them to her employer for eventual sale to foreign interests. The double is exposed when the real Jaime calls Oscar from the Bahamas claiming to have been assaulted. Of course, this leads to Jaime going undercover pretending to be the double. It should be no surprise that the climax involves a confrontation between Jaime and her double. This episode is mostly notable for the introduction of the character of Lisa Galloway (as the double) who later resurfaces in the vastly superior 2nd season 2-parter episode "Deadly Ringer". Wagner deservedly won an Emmy award for her performance in part 2 of "Deadly Ringer"; a notable accomplishment because series of this type (Sci-fi adventure)were not respected by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences until "The X-files" came along many years later.
