Evil Boyfriend is episode 18 of Season 1.
Samantha makes the acquaintance of James, an exchange student from London, and is immediately smitten with him. What she is not cognizant of is that her so-called boyfriend is one of the villains she and the other spies are chasing.
In fact, James is the thief who absconded with a groundbreaking invisibility formula. Although Jerry provides the girls with details which point to James as the culprit, Sam refuses to believe them. Her intransigence arouses a quarrel between her and the other spies, and they eventually resort to parting company.
After James has revealed his culpability to Sam, they follow James to Washington DC as he schemes to abduct the President by using the invisibility formula.
In the B-story, the girls try to relax together.
