This episode begins when a female spy, Erika Weidler, makes her way to Stalag 13 with some valuable information that needs to be sent to London. The problem is that Erika cannot leave the country because that would mean that her contact would be killed. So the information has to get to London by other means.
Hogan thinks of a far-out scheme where Klink will be the carrier. But it will be a complicated story as Klink is visited by an admirer, who is really Erika, that ends up being supposedly the wife of a German General. The General, played by Carter, challenges Klink to a duel. But instead of facing death, Klink plans to run off with Erika to Argentina.
There are many things wrong with this story. From Klink being caught by the Gestapo to Carter playing a real phony type General- this stretch the viewer's imagination. But there is a scene in the episode that was very well written. When Klink is first visited by Erika (his admirer) there are some very funny lines and gags which compensated for the unbelievable events. When Klink takes off Erika's jacket and he gets a look at her, that was one of the better silent looks we get in any series. Not one of the better plots but the show was definitely funny.
