Season One of the "new" Mission:Impossible came to an end with the episode titled "The Bayou." Veteran Australian movie villain Frank Thring guest-stars as Jake Morgan, who in concert with his partner Pepper Leveau (Paula Kelly) operates a thriving white-slavery ring in New Orleans. To put Morgan and Leveau out of business, the IMF team stages a voodoo ritual aimed at splitting up the nefarious duo --- and in so doing, our heroes also hope to rescue the villain's latest victim, Diane Marshall (played by former What's Happening!! regular Danielle Spencer). First broadcast on May 6, 1989, "The Bayou" was written by Jeffrey M. Hayes.
