| Hard-boiled episode with plenty of action...
A fisherman friend of Charlie Townsend's, a blind man who just lost his daughter in a suspicious drowning, hires the Angels to investigate an exclusive resort named Moonshadows; seems his daughter was an investigative journalist who had uncovered a property takeover scheme involving the County Planning Commissioner, while the heavy who runs the hotel (a menacing, hairy-chested Robert Loggia) is operating the business under a phony identity. Jill poses as the new tennis instructor at Moonshadows, Kelly is a pushy fashion photographer who immediately gets on Loggia's bad side, while Sabrina spills practically the entire covert operation to their blind client who is actually a ringer (a mistake which nearly costs Sabrina her life). Farrah Fawcett-Majors later cited some of the dialogue in this episode as one of the reasons why she wasn't happy with her character, and indeed Jill seems more featherbrained here than usual (especially a line at the end concerning her need to stop at the market). Still, there's a fun massage scene where Jaclyn Smith's Kelly gets worked over by a mad Swede, and Kate Jackson as Sabrina has a genuine scared/angry reaction after she's nearly run off a mountain road. A middling episode of the hit series, but one with some good location work and a strong supporting cast, plus the usual braless jiggle and Smith in a stunning white bikini.
