Mysterious but benevolent operative Stingray (Nick Mancuso) meets with caring psychiatrist Dr. Harriet Freedman (Kate Charleson) who outlines the horrors patients are subjected to at the psychiatric hospital where she works.

Her revelation of possible Soviet involvement both perplexes and intrigues him. After he agrees to help and they part she disappears with blatant signs of a struggle.

Certain of her account of the situation he decides to infiltrate the hospital by getting himself committed there by acting crazy. As we see during the run of the series Stingray specializes in becoming whatever he thinks he needs to be to get a job done. In this case he has a moment to question whether that is sound as he hears conflicting accounts from the other patients that contradict some of what Harriet told him.

Even near the end of the Cold War paranoia could be mistaken for good thinking. This episode has some fun with that in a way that doesn't insult the intelligence of the audience. The hero is taken down a peg or two in a teleplay which appeared designed to make him seem more human and less icy.

Really all that this solid entry lacks is solid guest stars. There are none aside from Robyn Douglass reprising her role from the pilot.
