Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Andrzej Krukowski ...
Andrzej Bielawski (as Andrew Krukowski)


New York welcomes defected Polish freedom movement leader Andrzej Bielawski, who is to head a 'democratic government in exile'. The spies couple, despite their mutual frustration and disgust over abuse from their KGB superiors, does their best to discredit Bielawski, who also claims a clerical calling but enjoys the good Western life too much. Philip sets a trap with his old flame Irena, who surprisingly tells him to have a college age son, but never told him to be the father so he wouldn't break off his spy training. Beeman's guilty conscience about the poorly protected Soviet embassy mole doesn't carry much weight. Written by KGF Vissers

Did anyone say Julian Assange and Dominique Strauss-Kahn?
29 August 2013 | by (Copenhagen) – See all my reviews

In Reagan's 1980's Cold War America, Russian KGB-agents live like regular American citizens, while conducting Machiavellian operations. An exiled Polish priest leads from New York the opposition to free Poland of Soviet oppression, but the KGB sends in a pretty agent to entice him. Even after he politely rejects her advances, he wakes up naked the day after with the girl in hospital having been "raped" by the priest. This episode relays the elements of a classic sex trap against a good man, which sends echoes from similar cases in latter years against the likes of Julian Assange from WikiLeaks. The episode (and the show in general) is a good warning to constantly be critical about what one is told, and what may be going on behind the curtains.
