Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Elizabeth Ashley shines in an extremely difficult guest-star turn in the Mission:Impossible episode "Encounter." The IMF is assigned to halt the extortionist activities of crooked business executives Frank Brady (Val Avery) and Martin Stoner (Lawrence Dane). The key to the mission's success is the mercurial -- but potentially beneficial -- behavior of Stoner's alcoholic wife Lois (Ashley). Originally seen on October 30, 1971, "Encounter" was written by Howard Beck.
