Millicent Fairbush is a girl from a cheerleader group, the Owlettes, who is matched up with Remington Steele as his date at a swanky party thrown by a magazine for the 5 most "eligible bachelors" in Los Angeles. While its obvious Millicent is a bimbo, she isn't revealed to be a villainess until near the end of the episode. She's actually a co conspirator with the magazine publisher (and secretly married to him) and another crook - the criminals are murdering the bachelors to get their hands on insurance money. One by one the men are killed. After an evening date with Steele, Millicent leads him into a trap, where an

attempt is made to run the detective down by a car. However, the murder attempt fails, Remington survives with a broken leg and superficial injuries. Millicent also betrays the villainous publisher and murders him. A wheel chair bound Steele goes with Millicent to an arena where heroine, Laura Holt, is being pursued by the other crook. While Millicent pushing the wheelchair takes Steele into the building, the highly vulnerable detective rather foolishly tells her he has worked out that she is part of the murderous criminal scheme. Millicent then decides to to push Steele in his wheelchair down the stadium seating area to kill him; but Laura has spotted them and rides to the rescue - she slides down a wire and smashes into Millicent before the villainess can launch Steele to his death. Laura takes on Millicent; Laura easily beats her much taller opponent, landing Millicent a powerful kick in the stomach and a haymaker sock to the jaw, which sends the villainess collapsing into a pile of boxes. In the course of the fight Laura bumps into Steele's wheelchair and he's sent careering down the seating area where he collides with the other crook who is running up - Steele suffers another broken leg as a result.

Fate - arrested
