After the caper is over, Mimi is enlisted in the IMF while Casey is "in deep cover in Europe" (in fact, Lynda Day George was having a baby).

That's not a false moustache that Barney's wearing in the picture - Greg Morris had grown that rather unconvincing piece of facial adornment during the hiatus between seasons 6 and 7, and it appeared in the first four episodes made, #147 Speed to #150 Leona. Since the episodes are rarely shown in the production order, this makes things rather confusing for viewers, as the moustache pops up in the occasional episode throughout most of the season.

Screen shot

8 (G13) - Movie: A crime syndicate boss, Norman Shields (John Vernon) has taken over a Hollywood studio. The money is put up by Benjamin Dane (David Brian), who sends his brother Theo (Rhodes Reason, right, being drugged by Jim) to look after his interests. The IMF have to get Syndicate financial records, held by Shields. Jim pretends to be Theo, and Barney poses as a director intent on making a motion picture that parallels exactly an unsolved murder committed by Shields, with Mimi in a starring role.
