"EPISODE TWO OF THIS STORY...
in which John Steed has his doubts about Mrs. Peel's assignment and Mrs.
Peel herself finds evidence to suggest that the security leak is ALL DONE
Steed and Mother are discussing how Steed
had worked out security arrangements at Carmadoc and how Mother had
screened everyone. Mrs. Peel finds Guthries cottage where it appears he
had been interested in amateur astronomy. Some mirrors are lying broken. A
lady introduces herself as Daisy and says that she looks after Mr.
Guthrie. Markin is somehow listening in to their conversation, but with
difficulty. Telling his boss to "try another angle," he then hears more
clearly. Daisy explains that Mr. Guthrie wanted everything shiny smashed
and it had something to do with a Mr. Williams who lives down the road.
Markin, hearing this, sends an accomplice, Gozzo, to kill Williams. In the
meantime, Watney suspects a Dr. Seligman who he finds using binoculars.
Mrs. Peel finds Williams strangled and while taking an envelope from him,
"EPISODE THREE IN THIS STORY...
in which John Steed is still out of action and Emma Peel with the help of
Watney learns that murder can be ALL DONE BY MIRRORS."
After a long struggle with Mrs. Peel, Gozzo
accidentally dies. At Carmadoc, Watney no longer suspects Seligman, a
meteorologist. Tiddiman and Carswell also work in the lab. Mrs. Peel
enters and reports the two further casualties. She shows Seligman some
scribbles on the envelope and he tells her it's just an equation. He then
whispers to Watney that he knows how the secrets are being leaked and
arranges to meet him in the woods. There, Seligman hears his name being
called leading him towards a mirror. Watney also hears this and then a
gunshot. He finds the dying Seligman, who says that it is all done with
mirrors. Having suspected something, Sparshott appears holding a gun,
which Watney grabs and finds hasn't been fired. Watney notices a
lighthouse and reports to Mrs Peel, who discovers a drawing of a
lighthouse on the back of the envelope.
"EPISODE FOUR OF THIS STORY...
in which John Steed realises why Emma Peel is playing this case solo and
follows through on the suggestion that it's ALL DONE BY MIRRORS."
Mrs. Peel parks near the lighthouse and a
man named Ketteridge tells her it's a private residence. Timothy Barlow
then comes to the door and introduces himself as the Colonel's secretary.
Mrs. Peel follows him up spiral stairs to speak with Colonel Withers, who
is looking through a telescope. Waiting for Watney to report, Mother
explains to Steed that he had to let Mrs. Peel lead an investigation
sometime. Mrs. Peel asks the Colonel if he knew Guthrie or perhaps saw him
through his telescope. He insists he's only interested in the sea. Turning
the telescope to the cliffs, Mrs. Peel tells them they have another a
visitor. Barlow goes down and Mrs. Peel is similarly unsuccessful when
talking to the Colonel about Williams.
"EPISODE FIVE OF THIS STORY...
in which John Steed and Mother are quite unaware of Mrs. Peel's impending
fate and how it is ALL DONE BY MIRRORS."
The visitor is Pandora Marshall, who finds
it odd that Barlow has to be reminded about a letter he wrote to her about
her visit. Mrs. Peel is encouraged to leave. The Colonel leaves the
telescope unattended. Pandora, taken to a guest room, sneaks out and
climbs the stairs. She quickly deduces, as she already knows a bit about
it, how the telescope sends and transmits sound. Focusing on Mrs. Peel's
car mirror she tries to explain what's happening and warn her that Barlow
is an impostor. He enters and Mrs. Peel only hears Pandora calling to her.
She tells Watney this on her car phone and he heads for the lighthouse.
Barlow sends Ketteridge after Mrs. Peel. He then makes Pandora lure Mrs.
Peel to the cliff edge by calling for help with the telescope. Ketteridge
forces Mrs. Peel over the edge.
"EPISODE SIX IN THIS STORY...
in which John Steed hears from Mother of Mrs. Peel's fate and young Watney
just can't grasp the significance of the fact that it's ALL DONE BY
Pandora is put in the cellar where the real
Colonel and Barlow are being held. Watney and Sparshott arrive and seeing
her shoes, fear that Mrs. Peel has gone over the cliff. Mother tells
Watney to keep searching and give a detailed report. Gaining consciousness
in the sea, Mrs. Peel swims ashore. At the lighthouse, she disables
Ketteridge and discovers the cellar where, overpowering Markin, she finds
the captives. They tell her that the other impostors are foreign agents,
stealing secrets from Carmadoc by using the telescope. Unable to release
them, Mrs. Peel is told how she might get help by using the telescope.
First she knocks out the bogus Colonel.
"EPISODE SEVEN, THE FINAL EPISODE OF THIS
in which Mother allows John Steed to take a more active part, Emma Peel
solves all her difficulties and even Watney Watney Watney is convinced
that it's ALL DONE BY MIRRORS."
Mother tells Watney to come home. Steed has
read Watney's report that it is all done by mirrors and so decides to
visit the lighthouse. With the telescope, Mrs. Peel tells Watney, on a
road nearby, that she's in the lighthouse as two of Barlow's men rush in.
Steed arrives, releases the captives and learns what's going on. Mrs. Peel
overpowers the men, but Barlow enters with a gun. Watney rushes in and
they send the top man tumbling down the stairs.
