K IS FOR KILL
PART 2: TIGER BY THE TAIL

Produced in France: June 1977
UK Premiere: 3 November 1977
US Premiere: 23 March 1979 (aired together with Part 1 as a "feature-length" episode)

A leftover Russian commando unit comprised of radio-controlled sleepers is activated by a malfunctioning satellite. All 250 soldiers are eventually killed... but there were actually 252. The French government dismisses Steed's warning of the dangers posed by the two "Special K" agents, so it is up to the Avengers to prevent the assassination of France's President—and the start of World War III!
 

 IMHO

See Part 1 IMHO for the general observations. Part 2 is not much different, except that Steed and Gambit each take two bullets, something that would never happen in the original series—which only heightens the stark differences between the two.
