Episode 6: Quando Ti Guardo

Summary

Desperate to prevent German reunification, Lenora seeks Fuchs' help in Italy, home of the HVA in exile. Fuchs tries to find a peaceful solution between his former agents, but Martin and Lenora have other ideas. Tina receives a mysterious visitor, while Martin is growing suspicious of Nicole's true intentions. In German.

Review

“Everything’s falling apart,” observes Martin (Jonas Nay), our reluctant cold warrior, helpfully pointing out this series’ overarching theme. Like most of his comrades in the East German security apparatus, he is cut adrift after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

And although he is, in theory, freelancing for the CIA, in practice his main aim seems to be to take revenge on his cruel aunt (Maria Schrader), who recruited him into the life of brutality in the first place, when he was at that stage a humble border guard. 

Tonight, she fetches up in Italy, at the glorious villa with a view over the Bay of Naples that has become the HQ of their branch of the Stasi in exile. It’s a lot prettier than East Berlin.
