Mortimer tells Steed that there is a traitor in Mother's organisation, but he
cannot remember who. Mrs Peel also forgets what she learns and is then
kidnapped. When Steed awakes, he has no memory of events either. He seeks
the help of new recruit, Tara King, and together they trace Karl and Brad to
their hideout - the Glasshouse. The real traitor is George Burton who has
developed memory-killing darts. With the help of two avengers, Steed
overpowers the gang, though no one is quite sure why. Mrs Peel is now needed
by her husband, so she leaves to be reunited with him - leaving Steed in the
capable hands of Tara King.
