Someone is out to kill Klink
26 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last episode in season two begins with Hogan sending an undercover agent out through the tunnel. But because of a problem the agent is captured and Klink arrest him as a spy.

But after the arrest some strange things begin to happen to Klink. A shot comes through his window and then an explosion that comes close to killing Klink. So now Hogan puts the thought into Klink's head that someone is out to kill him. Hogan names the unknown suspect 'Mr. X'.

Klink is so scared that he gets Hogan to stand-in for him as Commandant as they await Mr X's next move. Hogan dresses up as Klink and even received a visitor from the SS concerning a very secret meeting that will happen at the Stalag the following day. That meeting sounds important not only to Hogan but also to the Allied effort in the war.

Another pleasurable episode that has all the material needed for a good show. Werner Klemperer makes this episode funny as his character thinks someone is out to get him and that person may even be the agent that he arrested. An entertaining episode to round out the second season of the series. Season three starts soon and if this show is any indication, its going to be a good third season.
