…is to make you bow to someone else’s command. The I Spy episode “It’s All Done With Mirrors” originally aired this date, April 13, 1966. While on a break in Acapulco, Kelly is abducted and brainwashed into believing that Scotty must be killed because he has turned traitor. But does Kelly believe it enough?
Carroll O’Connor plays the enemy scientist, Dr. Karolyi, who conditions Kelly and is very far removed from Archie Bunker here.
In the clip below, “Miss Pemberly” reminds Kelly of why Scotty must be killed. Although Kelly thinks she’s a government agent like himself, she is actually part of the team that brainwashed him.
There are many great scenes in this episode (the entire episode is superb) but this one below is fantastic for the tension that builds with Kelly’s erratic behavior and treatment of Scotty.
