Deutschland 83 (SundanceTV)

Deutschland 83 “Cold Fire” Episode 5 airs Wednesday, July 15 at 11:00PM ET/PT on SundanceTV. In tonight’s episode, Tischbier shows up at the commune to retrieve Martin, who is still reeling from Linda’s sudden death. They fight, but Tischbier holds the trump card: his mother will have her kidney transplant but Martin is the donor. He must get to East Berlin by the afternoon. Martin travels back over the border for the first time since the beginning of his journey – first to West Berlin, where he delivers a package to a mysterious man. When a bomb goes off at the Maison de France minutes later, Martin chases down the man who took the package and dismantles a second bomb.

As Linda figures out Martin’s true identity, she runs. Martin follows but his East Germany cohorts are way ahead of him. He is forced to recognize the dark reality of the organization he is working for and his job becomes a terrifying trap.

Show Summary: DEUTSCHLAND 83 is a gripping coming-of-age story set against the real culture wars and political events of Germany in the 1980s. The drama follows Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay) as the 24 year-old East Germany native is pulled from the world as he knows it and sent to the West as an undercover spy for the Stasi foreign service.

Hiding in plain sight in the West German army, he must gather the secrets of NATO military strategy. Everything is new, nothing is quite what it seems and everyone he encounters is harboring secrets, both political and personal.
