Episode 6: Brandy Station


Martin wants to stay in East Germany after returning for his mother’s kidney transplant. Alex Edel takes General Jackson hostage.


Recovering in the hospital from the kidney transplant for his mother, Martin encounters his fiancée Annett for the first time since he left. He wants to stay in East Germany now, but she tells him to go West again. Much is left unsaid. East Germany Secret Service employee Schweppenstette visits him next and insists, in a tense, father-son coded argument, that Martin return to his post. Meanwhile, Alex Edel has taken General Jackson hostage and forced him, at gunpoint, to film a seething denouncement of US military plans in Western Europe. Lenora follows the whole thing over the wire.
