Following her prison escape, Jaime Sommers is unable to convince anyone, including Oscar Goldman, of her true identity. Finally the police have her cornered at a depot, where they attempt blunderbuss tactics to force her surrender. Jaime barricades herself in, and the attendant is so awed by her bionic strength he agrees to be her "hostage" to trick the warden into bringing Oscar in person. Jaime uses a demonstration of her bionic hearing to convince Oscar of her true identity. Harkens and Weber are led away in handcuffs, having admitted that Courtney is behind the plot. The warden apologizes to Jaime for what happened to her.

Back in Ojai, Lisa Galloway turns her back on Courtney, and later tips off the OSI to his whereabouts. She tries to integrate herself into Jaime's life, but the adrenalizine drug she is consuming to emulate super-strength is slowly poisoning her. Once this side-effect is discovered, they set off for Ojai to save Lisa. Once there, Jaime insists on a one-to-one approach with Lisa, having been badly affected by the treatment she received at the depot. After a battle with the adrenalizine-crazed Lisa, Jaime succeeds in persuading her to seek help. Lisa is taken to hospital to recover from the poisoning and receive the plastic surgery to restore her original appearance. The experience reforms Lisa and she apologizes to Jaime.


Ohanian: Without a doubt, you are the best looking courier Rudy has ever sent here.
Lisa: I bet you say that to all couriers.

Ohanian: Have you anything you'd like to give us?
Lisa: A cheerful goodbye. Goodbye!

Lisa: There are some things that money won't buy you know.
Dr. Courtney: Not many when you've got ten million dollars.

Oscar: It's no good, Lisa. We know that you've studied Jaime's life.
Jaime: I have lived Jaime's life!

Dr. Courtney: Jaime Sommers is in a prison grave wearing Lisa Galloway's face.

Lisa: I could eat a horse right now.
Helen: Well, I know you can lift one.

Jaime: Plato! What happened?
Rudy: The adrenalazine is breaking down chemically. It's becoming a poison. Plato's dead, and if you don't get to Ojai soon, Lisa will be too.

Helen: You're not angry with me?
Jaime: No. How could I be angry with you for loving somebody?

Lisa: (smashes table) See what I can do? I'm Jaime!
Jaime: That was Jaime's favorite table. Now if you were her, you wouldn't have done that.

Lisa: You just don't want me to live like you!
Jaime: No. I want you to live like you.
Lisa: I can't!
Jaime: Yes, you can! Your life is worth living. You don't need mine.


  • Lindsay Wagner won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series in 1977 for her work in this episode.


  • Jaime's clothes go from wet and muddy to dry and clean immediately after eluding her pursuers at the waterfall.
  • En route to teh storage depot, the police officer driving Warden Cooper is not wearing a hat but when they arrive, he is.
  • When Jaime slams the gate on the two police officers, one of them loses his hat. But in the next scene, he's still wearing it.
  • As Jamie pushes down the dead tree trunk, a support cable from the top of the trunk is briefly visible, and then part of a crane can be seen in the upper right corner.


  • When Jaime crushes the lock on a call box, two small abrasions are visible on her hand.
  • During Lisa's impromptu bionic tests, Rudy only evaluates her strength levels. If he had actually attempted to examine the bionics or test the ear, the charade would have ended.
  • The sound effect for adrenalizine resembles closely the sound effect for bionics.
