Storyline

In the second episode to discuss Mac's past life as a CIA operative, he's called on by his old boss to help investigate a "sleeper," a Communist agent who has lived undetected in the United States and adopted American customs until it's his -- or her -- moment to strike. An upcoming U.S.-Soviet intelligence summit is the apparent moment. The sleeper could be anybody, even Mac's intelligence buddy, because he or she is thoroughly Americanized and could be engaged in anything, including counterintelligence. Throw in several Soviet hit men assigned to waste the sleeper before Mac uncovers his or her identity ... Written by Peter Harris

Trivia

Susan Saint James gave birth to her child Harmony Lucas on the day this was first broadcast. Since programs are often filmed months in advance, she would continue to appear pregnant in the next two episodes. See more »

Goofs

The final shootout is an homage to the final shootout and chase in Bullitt, but between that show's filming and this one, metal detectors and security guards were installed at all passenger gates. The killer gets through them to shoot an intelligence agent and flees onto the airport runway. (Another character pulls a gun in the baggage claim area, but that's not covered by airport security.) Later, Mac runs down a jetway to chase the killer, and his gun DOES set off the security alarm. Two airport policeman tackle him -- and he shakes them off. See more »

Back to the CIA!
4 February 2019 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Mac's CIA past comes back to haunt him. Donna Mills guest stars and does a good job in the role. Mac needs to solve his friend's murder. As usual, the cast does a believable job as the plots get more convoluted and complicated. I enjoy the guest appearances and the San Francisco scenery.
