Synopsis Edit

Hogan gets Klink to think he is about to capture a POW escape ring.

Story Notes Edit

  • This is the one hundred and nineteenth episode of the series, but is the one hundred and forty-fourth episode shown on television and the twenty-sixth and last episode shown for the Fifth Season.
  • This is the last episodic appearance of Ivan Dixon and his character Sergeant James Kinchloe.
  • Klink has a girlfriend named Heidi Frederich in this episode, who eventually dumps him for the more wealthy and socially acceptable Burkhalter.

Timeline Notes and Speculations Edit

  • This has the feel of an early series episode, despite being produced late in the show's run, with the operational emphasis of our heroes on the rescue of downed Allied airmen.  Also, Klink and Schultz are more devious than usual, again like the earlier episodes.  As such, and given no solid date references within the episode itself, a date sometime in 1943 appears likely.  A date late in 1943 is favored, due to the fact that our heroes have rescued over 500 Allied airmen to date - per Hogan, "Counting you four, we've had 519 customers - thirteen in just the past week."  Another factor in favor of a 1943 date is Burkhalter's decision to launch a full investigation of Hogan's fake escape.  He would not be able to do so in 1944, lacking manpower and resources for such due to the Allied invasion of Europe.
