Story Notes Edit

Timeline Notes and Speculations Edit

  • This appears to take place in the summer of 1944, almost immediately after Klink vs. The Gonculator.
  • This is the second time that Hogan will refer to his date of insertion into Stalag 13 (1942), as established in The Informer. He reminds Klink that he's been at Stalag 13 for two years.
  • SPECULATION: The original underground cell in Düsseldorf was rounded up by the Gestapo in Everyone Has a Brother-in-Law. The faux cell in this episode, code named "North Star", apparently is presuming to be its replacement. One would think that our heroes would have been suspicious of the new cell unless they already knew some of its members from the old one. This would presuppose that the Gestapo kept part of the old cell going, using its undercover agents that helped break it up, to found "North Star". Our heroes apparently never learned how the Gestapo found out about the old cell at Düsseldorf, so this at least is plausible.
