Story Notes Edit
- This is the one hundred and thiry-second episode of the series, but is the one hundred and twenty-ninth episode shown on television and the eleventh episode shown for the Fifth Season.
- We get to hear part of an actual speech by Hitler in this episode (any German speakers out there know which one it is?)
Timeline Notes and Speculations Edit
- This appears to take place in late 1944. The date is keyed to the real-life later stages of Operation Bernhard but skewed somewhat, to account for differences between the real world and the world of the series.
- The Nazis actually planned to counterfeit American paper money as part of Operation Bernhard. Test US$100 notes were actually printed on January 25, 1945, but the full-scale operation was ordered stopped by the RSHA the next day. It was never restarted.
- When Hogan was a kid, he used to vandalize posters and billboards.
- At 5:50 the prisoners are unloading a truck. Carter hands down a wooden crate marked "Wein Z." The wine-crate marked with a "Z" is a prop from season 4, episode 22, "The Purchasing Plan." There the "Z" indicates that the crate really contains explosives, not wine.
