Juliana Crain makes a new acquaintance in the Neutral Zone - an Irish fixer named Wyatt - and soon finds herself on the run and seeking Tagomi's aid. The Japanese test an atomic bomb. Joe Blake is sent on a diplomatic mission to San Francisco. Kido hires a new sergeant. Nicole Dormer arrives in New York to head a new propaganda campaign. The Smiths struggle with the aftermath of Thomas' death.
George Lincoln Rockwell, here the Reichsmarchall for the American Reich, was in the reality time line the founder of the American Nazi Party in 1959. However, he served in the US Navy during World War II and was not a convert to Hitlerian ideas until well after the war. It is unclear how he rose to a position of such prominence in the High Castle time line, though presumably like John Smith he was co-opted soon after the Nazi conquest. See more »
Even though in English the word 'fuhrer' can correctly be spelled as such (i.e. without capitalization or an umlaut), the front page of the "Greater Reich Herald" newspaper that the doorman hands to John Smith also contains several misspellings ("furher", "Oberst-gruppenfuthrer"). See more »

They can't pull this shit on me last minute. The Fritz Kuhn deal is my deal. I don't need some German chick fresh off the rocket plane to tell me which way's up.

Sorry. Billy Turner. Minister of Propaganda, and world-class idiot.

I really want to enjoy this but by gosh it's hard work!
The brief "Previously on..." montage was not enough to remind me of all the disparate plotlines on MIHK series 2 a year ago.. The asumption that I can recall why and how John Smith's son died...nope.
What is right and wrong with it so far? Rufus Sewell, of course, is riveting and Jason O'Mara for once is allowed to use his own Irish accent..but even that sounds fake!...what is going on?
Well, it's summed up by one of the characters in a "pop" band in episode 1 saying to the audience " It's the first time we've played this one before." Eh? Just think about that. 2 drafts of the script just glued together?
On the plus side money has been well spent on effects and the brief action scenes, shame more wasn't spent on a script editor 6/10 so far.
