The FBI follow-up when a Nazi war criminal imprisoned in Munich claims to know the cause of the blackout. He also knows Agent Mark Benford by name. Benford and Agent Janis Hawk travel to Munich to interview the man and while he is prepared to share what he knows, he has only one requirement: that he be set free and allowed to return to the United States where he once lived. His information does lead the Agents to realize something very important about the blackout. Having seen his daughter alive in his future vision, Mark's friend Aaron Stark tries to get his ex-wife's agreement to exhume her remains and have further DNA testing to confirm if it's really their daughter. Agent Demetri Noh's fiancée manages to return from Seattle now that flights have been re-instated but he doesn't tell her about his lack of a future vision. Written by

The plot of 137 Sekunden revolves around Mark Benford making a deal to release a Nazi war criminal who claims to have knowledge about the cause of the blackouts. Mark and Janis are depicted as agonizing about the possibility of releasing a Nazi based on claims which turn out to be false. However, in American law, and presumably in German law as well, such deals are predicated on the criminal actually providing the information they claim to have. Any criminal who tries to double cross the authorities will quickly find their agreement revoked. See more
