Newkirk girls turns out to be Gestapo.
27 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Newkirk, who is out on one of Hogan's leave policies, has found him a girlfriend, Gretel, in the local town and it appears they have become sweethearts. But right before the evening starts warming up the Gestapo breaks down the door and takes Newkirk back to Stalag 13.

Klink is none too happy and instead of punishing him, Klink is going to send him to another Stalag to live out the war. When it looks like the transfer is going into effect, Hogan gives Newkirk permission to escape and return to London.

But before he leaves the country, Newkirk goes back to get his sweetheart, Gretel. But little does he know that she is actually working for the Gestapo.

This is not a bad story but it did have some loose ends that were never tied down. Newkirk brings the Gestapo agent into camp and she see the operation. Of course by the time Hochstetter checks her story the gang has already hidden or disguised all the operations-- but no one ever questioned why a woman was even in the camp. The Germans never questioned how she even got through the gate. But I realize that this is a TV sitcom and everything is not explained. The only thing we know is that the heroes get their way and will return next episode. A nice show but nothing really stands out about this episode.
