Season finale: Martin races to avoid police capture and warn the East Germans that "Able Archer" is only an exercise, not a real attack.
At the East German Headquarters, fear of a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the West has become a very real possibility, while in the West, the nuclear war game “Able Archer” reaches its peak. A fallen agent, Martin is now persona non grata on both sides of the border. On his way back into the lion’s den to confront the top security at East German’s Foreign Arm of the Secret Service, he saves Yvonne from the clutches of Annett and the Secret Police in Germany. Ingrid hunts down Schweppenstette to save Thomas from prison. Alex confronts his own demons – about his sexuality, about AIDS and about his father. Finally, Martin has no choice but to sacrifice himself to stop the East German’s Secret Service from setting off a catastrophe of epic proportions.
