One of the classic early episodes featuring the wonderful Mimi Rogers as Magnum's girlfriend. This is one of those episodes that's very dark in tone (a female stalker, pre-Fatal Attraction, but post-Play Misty For Me), but is also filled with some great, humorous moments. The episode is bookended with two great scenes, and Higgie-Baby is shot. Don't miss this one.

Ahh, I vaguely recall that grundle. Do you happen to remember how it goes?

Magnum comments that the rich Italian guy probably didn't pay the taxes on the piece of jewelry that the girl stole from him. And then the rich Italian guy says, "Why should I? They'd just give the money to the communists."

For those that get the "Chiller" network, all this week they are replaying a 1977 tv movie called, "The Possessed". Among the cast are Ann Dusenberry and a young Harrison Ford (as a college professor!).

Oddly enough, last weekend Ann kept popping up as another traumatized teen in Jaws 2. :shock:

I just watched this episode again. It was on WGN yesterday.

I remembered that somehow, Magnum drove off from the Sicilian villa in a red Ferrari, just like Robin's, but I didn't remember the specifics. Turns out, he stole it! 8)

This made me think about how he got there in the first place. Did he take a cab or parachute out of a plane? :lol:

Any ideas? Is there more to the rescue scene in the DVD version of this episode?

The DVD version of this episode does not answer the question of how Magnum actually gets to the Villa. We know he was flown there in Robin's jet, but that is where it ends. If I remember correctly, the first shot we see is of Magnum already on the Villa grounds. So, I guess this is one of those plot holes we talk so much about.

I have another question about this episode. Was it ever revealed who scratched Robin's Ferrari while parked at the University of Hawaii? Remember, Magnum thought this may have been revenge for scratching the Marquises' Ferrari while Magnum was escaping.

I could have sworn that it WAS the Marquise who did it, as I thought he dropped a little hint about it. On my next round through Season 2, I'll have to remember to check for that.

I remember first watching that I thought it was Katrina who did it, but how could she have gotten off the grounds (prior to shooting Higgins)?

And if it was Hawaiian dude and girlfriend, they have to be the most reactionary people in the world!
