Storyline

An Eastern Bloc espionage ring operating in the Los Angeles area is unraveling. One of its key operatives, Jan Anka, has manipulated a draftsman at a missile plant into providing copies of key blueprints. The plant employee's German girlfriend is being held in East Germany -- or so he believes. It turns out the girlfriend has really been dead for eight months. The draftsman attempts to quit the ring but Anka kills him. Now, the FBI has been drawn into the case, led by Erskine and Colby. Things become more complicated. Anka has posed for years as another man. A woman shows up -- the daughter of the man Anka has pretended to be. Now she's in danger as the espionage ring becomes more desperate.

The case of the lady who was a complete knucklehead!
20 January 2020 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In "The Daughter", a communist cell is coming apart rapidly and the remaining members are incredibly blood-thirsty!

The episode begins with a man learning that he's been helping communist spies in order to get his girlfriend out of an East German prison....and she's actually been dead for months! Not surprisingly, he's angry and not about to continue spying for them. After he is murdered, the spy ring starts to fall apart and soon one spy after another either takes cyanide or are trying to kill folks to keep things quiet. Into the midst of this bloodbath is a very stubborn AND dumb lady. When the FBI tell her about the danger she's in for, she ignores them and blunders into harm's way anyway. What's next? See the show.

Like most of the espionage episodes, this one is very good...though I must admit that the young lady was annoyingly dumb. Still, it wasn't like the show was poorly written...she was just a very hard-headed person and you almost hope the FBI don't rescue her!
