Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Season Four of Mission: Impossible came to a thrilling conclusion with the series' March 29, 1970 episode "The Martyr." This time, the IMF must discredit the repressive regime of Communist leader Anton Rojek (John Larch). To solidify his base of power, Rojek intends to destroy a youthful cult built around the hero worship of a martyred resistance leader. Paris poses as the long-lost son of the deceased hero, while fellow IMF agents Barney and Roxy (Lynn Kellogg pretend to be teenaged students (convincing everyone except the viewer). Soap-opera doyenne Anna Lee makes a guest appearance as Maria Malik, widow of the hero in question. "The Martyr" was written by Ken Pettus.
