Storyline

By order of President Grant, Agents James West and Artemus Gordon must bring Russian prisoner Rimsky to Vladivostok, Siberia, in exchange for American Vice Consul, Millard Boyer. When he tries to escape, Rimsky falls to his death forcing Gordon to disguise himself as Rimsky to complete the exchange. The Russian contact arranging the exchange has West and Gordon imprisoned with the Vice Consul instead. There, they learn that Rimsky should have returned with 5 million dollars in extortion money from wealthy Russian immigrants. Now, the corrupt Russians are waiting for Rimsky and their cut of the ill-gotten treasure. Written by Tiff Banks

Trivia

West tells Sazanov "You can't send them to Alaska. You sold that to us 5 years ago.", that means the episode takes place in 1872. Alaska was purchased from Russia by the US in 1867 for 7.2 million dollars. It was originally offered to the United States in 1859, but the purchase was delayed by the US Civil War. See more »

Traveling to Siberia!!
1 December 2017 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

This exotic series always amazed me,it is really a different kind in old west,in this episode ours friends have hard mission,make a trade of prisoners between USA and Russia at Siberian place,but the Russian prisoner actually is killed before...Gordon has to replace him,on the way they are drugged and getting there after a long sleep...as guest star are the incredible John Astin and Malachi Throne,by the way the fantastic performance of the Astin wondered me,why he doesn't better used by the filmmakers about such clear talent and skill.
