Hogan and his men are in some serious trouble
23 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hogan and his men have been set-up by a German officer Major Hegel. It seems that Hegel knows all about the operation right down to the tunnels and secret radio. But the nice Major is after much more than just turning the Heroes into Berlin, he is after some reward. Major Hegel wants Hogan to call London and deliver one million dollars in diamonds in order for him to keep silent. Without the diamonds Hegel is going to expose the operation.

Of course there is no way London can deliver the diamonds but Hogan thinks of a scheme where it just may give him some more time. Instead of real diamonds he orders fake diamonds. With the help of Klink this just may give Hogan enough time to either ruin Hegel career or avoid getting shot.

There was a lot of suspense in this episode which always make for a nice show. With an interesting story and a nice script, this show was enjoyable. This is the first episode in season two that lives up to the high standards of the series. Good watch.
