|"The DeJon Caper"||"Iron Ships and Dead Men"|
When a sacred Indian burial ground is disturbed, an ancient curse releases a demon creature to exact revenge -- just as Jaime Sommers arrives for a little R&R.
Hawkins: You eh, one of them, eh, Vegas showgirls?
Hawkins: You're purdey enough for it!
Hawkins (to Jaime): I got me a big ole sidewinder. You wanna see it?
Jaime: (startled) Ah, some other time, thank you.
Bearclaw: "In early tribal mythology, First Man created the Universe. In his concept, the ideal state, was that in which all parts, each with its power for Good and Evil, are maintained in inter-related harmony. The balance is precarious at best but maybe upset intentionally by ghosts, witches and people who do evil. Or unintentionally by persons who break some religious taboo.
Jaime: Well how does he fit into the scheme?
Bearclaw: He [Massau] is a satanic figure with slight variations. His Good is that he protects the rest of the Dead. His bad is that when once aroused, he...
Jaime: Kinda does his own thing?
Bearclaw: Sort of.
- Howard McGillin also appeared as Staff Sgt. in the first season episode "The Deadly Missiles".
- The song that Jaime Sommers is listening to in her car at the beginning of the episode is Hoyt Axton aka Buck Buckley, singing "Fly Like An Eagle" from the episode "Road to Nashville" (S2E04).
- It cost $9.50 to fill the gas tank on Jaime's car.
- The year "1977" is mentioned in the dialogue.
- When Jaime Sommers is snooping around Lyle Cannon's workshop, she comes across a rather conveniently located geiger counter and starts sweeping around, looking for something. Jaime is surprised when she sweeps it by her shoes and the counter picks up some radioactivity. The big problem with that is that her bionics are powered by a radioactive atomic power unit, so chances are pretty good that that is what the geiger counter is picking up.
