EDIT
A Blessing in Disguise
AIRED:
Jim has cable TV installed and sees Angel Martin, who is now a Reverend at the Temple of Holy Light Church and wearing Jim’s favourite grey sport coat while preaching. Jim goes to the temple posing as someone wishing to healed and meets Angel who has his bodyguards; the Angels of the Lord remove Jim. One of the guards is Zachary Irons who particular hates Jim. Outside Jim rescues a young woman from a mob of protestors and learns she is an actress named Laura Sue Dean, whose live is being threatened because her new movie ‘Little Ezekial is being boycotted by Angel’s church. Jim agrees to protect her and breaks into Angel’s new church home to get back his sport coat (and other items) and accompanies Angel to the Morton Downey Jr Show, where the polite debate heats up into an all out fight, where Jim gets hit on the head with a chair. Jim goes with Laura Sue to the Phoenix Rooms to try and convince the movie producers Milovan D'Sant and Branka Costa to protect Laura Sue, they refuse, but begin to worry when their Limousine is bombed. Jim breaks into Angel’s church records but is caught by Zack and taken to Angel who gives Jim the name of the most crazy congregation member. Laura Sue and Jim attend the premier screening of the movie but are puzzled by thte absence of movie investor Danny Barclay. They go to his home and find him dead. Vincent Penguinetti PI appears claiming to be working for the movie producers and now protecting Laura Sue, but she rushes off with Jim and stays at his trailer. Next day they go to her agents WACA, who announce the movie ratings are great and try to get of Jim, but he saves them all from a gunner who shoots at the office. Laura Sue is forced to stay with Vincent while Jim overhears two agents talking about movie boycotts and profit and links the case together; Angel is selling movie boycotts. Jim takes Angel after the Angels of the Lord complain about payment and they meet Laura Sue and piece the case together. Jim and Angel break into the movie offices and get evidence but are caught by Milovan and Branka who force them into a car with the dead body of Vince Penguinetti inside. They go to Vince’s boat ith the intention of killing Jim and Angel and framing them for Vincent’s murder but Laura Sue storms in the truck and stops them. Jim chases Milovan onto the boat and forces him in the water. Laura Sue got the pair with the dead body on camera and the case is wrapped. Jim later tells Laura Sue she is very special because of her courage in the case.moreless
