Harry finds himself attached to a briefcase that is ticking. He was tricked away from the real package that was to be sent to Prince Carpiano. The old rich society of Rome are invited to a costume party that is cover for something else. Harry and the Contessa infiltrates the party to see what hate could be stirring amongst the people.
This episode is the last of the Protectors first season. After 26 episodes they will continue their escapades around the world. This story is not a very strong ending to the season but like previous episodes provides some nostalgic views of Rome. It is easy to see why audiences loved the show. I will leave this episode a mystery except it involves an old italian prince and some facist leaning elite and is definitely aptly named.
