SEASON 2 EPISODE 10. (32 )
November 24 1959.
** Spoiler Alert **
SYNOPSIS: In September of 1939, a group of macho German glider pilots and their beautiful young goupie,
Helga, promise to reunite again on the first Sunday after the war has ended. One man, Peter, is jealous of
Helga's friendship with Hans and kills him just before Hans' glider is launched on a final flight. The glider with
Hans' body aboard is lost for years behind a row of trees, only to mysteriously return for the reunion.
COMMENTARY: Jealousy rears its ugly head in this episode, another "comeuppance"-style account that witnesses
a guilty man condemned by the universal "scales of justice" for his nefarious deed and eventually exposed for his
crime. Peter is in love with a woman and worries incessantly that the more studly Hans will take that love away . . .
