We leave the prison for a day-trip to Berlin
28 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Harold J Stone plays Major Teppel an officer in the German intelligent unit that actually is on the side of the Allies. He come to the prison camp needing the assistance of Hogan. It seems that a British intelligent officer, Decker, was a spy and is now back in Berlin. Decker knows all the underground names that are working in German. He knows about Teppel and also all of Hogan's operations. This could be the end of the underground if Decker tells what he knows.

Teppel and Hogan come up with a plan where they will take care of Decker before he talks with the Gestapo. With time being short, Teppel talks Klink into letting him interview prisoners in Berlin. There they will try and get into Decker's hotel room before the Gestapo arrive. Things look bad when the Gestapo arrives at the door with Hogan and Tessel inside Decker's room.

This episode lets us leave the confines of the prison fence and open up plots for the writers. Even though it is rather bizarre that they would let a Major take a truck load of prisoners to Berlin, this situation does open up for new interest. And for the viewer instead of the routine show, we get to see new situations for the characters and an entertaining episode.
