The gang takes it upon themselves to save the jewel and expose the criminals.  Stephen is questioned by the police while Lyn Martin is putting herself in danger.  The trade must be made to save Lyn from injury or death.

Personal Synopsis

An episode with a great plot line and spectacular lighting. This episode allowed for some superb individual acting performances from Lilli Palmer and John Mills as well. The actors dynamics were working hard for this quartet of aging veteran resistance fighters to not outshine each other. It was a good episode to watch a few times.
