Peggy is shot by a stray bullet when Joe grapples with a gunman who has come to the office to steal evidence from one of Joe's cases. While she recuperates in the hospital, she finds herself strongly attracted to the patient across the hall, who is staying in the hospital under an assumed name. She eventually discovers that he is the seriously ill head of a recently-independent African country -- and that the reason for his being incognito is that his political enemies hope that he will not survive his medical treatment.

It's a Peggy episode.
27 July 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a very unusual episode of "Mannix" because Mannix is actually not in the episode very much and the case is solved in the opening scene. Instead, Peggy is the star--imagine!

The show begins with Joe entering his office and informing Peggy that he's just solved a case--thanks to a picture he just obtained. However, some gunman then enters the office and tries to take the photo--and in the process Peggy is shot! Oddly, although the wound is in her left shoulder, she's kept in the hospital for several days. During this time, she meets a handsome man in the room across the hall---and the guy is the leader of a new African nation. Minji Obuko (Hari Rhodes) is also very charming and soon the pair fall in love. However, three huge glitches stand in their way--he's very ill, some assassin is trying to kill him AND the writers of the show would never have Peggy leave to live in Africa! So, you know that it's not going to end the way Peggy wants--the only weakness of the show. However, apart from that, the program is excellent because it's so original and because it gives Gail Fisher a lot more to do than usual.

My only concern is just how many more awful things can happen to Peggy?! She's been kidnapped a couple times and shot in this show--and you'd THINK she'd find a better job!
