Story Notes Edit
- This is the fifty-ninth episode produced in the series, but is the fifty-seventh episode to be shown on television and is the twenty-fifth episode for the second season.
- This is Major Hochstetter's second series appearance. Beginning with this episode, Hochstetter will become a semi-recurring character for the rest of the series
Timeline Notes and Speculations Edit
- This is one of those episodes in which the weather must be considered when determining the date. It is bone-chilling cold to both prisoners and warders, as well as their visitors, thus implying wintertime. The cold snap provides a natural lead-in to the blizzard seen in Everybody Loves a Snowman. Additional data comes from references to other episodes. Hogan reminds his fellow heroes of the events depicted in The Flight of the Valkyrie, Hold That Tiger, and Hogan Gives a Birthday Party, which means this takes place after all three. Klink recalls the events of A Tiger Hunt In Paris, which puts this after that episode. This also happens after Color the Luftwaffe Red. In that episode, Schultz says he had never seen Carter and Newkirk act. Thus, a date in early 1944 (perhaps February?) appears to be fairly well fixed.
- Hochstetter says he visited Paris two weeks prior to this episode. He is also wearing his "Berlin uniform" with its colonel rank insignia. This implies that he has not yet been reassigned to Hammelburg. His actions are consistent with those of Heil Klink; namely, acting as part of a Berlin-based special investigations unit.
- At 21:39, when Claude and Suzanne are being 'married' by Klink, Hochstetter's face is visible for a split second beneath Claude's chin. When the veil is lifted at 21:43, Klink is off to the side, noticably not obscuring Suzanne from Hochstetter's field of view. In fact, he ought to have a clear view of her, but in spite of knowing the woman from her photograph, he is curiously unable to recognize her.
