Episode Info

Prev: 1x02 -- Episode 2 (Jan/16/2013)


Mercier’s mission becomes all too dangerous as his cover is compromised while trying to unearth German military plans, and a man believed dead reappears, sparking significant repercussions for both Mercier and Anna. Will Mercier discover the truth in time and what consequences will this have on the rest of Europe?

Led by intelligence from Dr Lapp, Mercier travels to Czechoslovakia to find and question the illusive ‘Seagull’, a German activist who is on the run from the Nazis.

Finding Seagull reluctant to become involved with the French, Mercier soon takes matters with into his own hands and persuades him to travel to Berlin under false identities. There, with Seagull’s help, Mercier hopes to employ a man who could prove to be a powerful ally against the Nazi regime.

As Mercier’s superiors become increasingly frustrated with his lack of protocol and risk-taking, they begin to question the intelligence he has gathered, when finally, Mercier finds himself in opposition to his own government. Frustrated with work and longing for the beautiful Anna, he returns to Paris and the support of his younger sister Gabrielle (Tuppence Middleton), eventually seeking solace at the old family estate and his father’s well-stocked wine cellar.

Now the threat of war becomes all too real as tensions rise across Europe and Mercier has to make difficult decisions.
