While at a NATO conference in Brussels, Moritz gets his first “Romeo” assignment: to seduce the head security analyst’s secretary, Linda. General Edel and his new aid bond on a trip to Brussels to meet with the top brass. Lenora emerges to tell Moritz that his mother needs a kidney transplant. She takes his blood to see if he might be a match. Back in East Berlin, Annett moves in to take care of Ingrid, at Lenora’s suggestion, and reveals that she is pregnant with Martin’s baby. When Moritz reconnects with Linda, a secretary he met earlier in Bonn, he sleeps with her and successfully installs a microphone in her desk at NATO. Moritz manages to connect the HVA Headquarters with the office of the top military security analyst at NATO Headquarters. It is the first time he pulls off such a complex spy maneuver successfully. His star keeps rising.

"Like The Americans, Deutschland 83... transports us to the other side of the Cold War rivalry, but this time much closer to the Iron Curtain, in East Germany. IT'S A TRIP WORTH TAKING." - Time Magazine

"A stylish take on the spy genre that carefully balances its humor with high stakes" - The AV Club

"It's a slinky thriller, well scored, well paced, cast with beautiful faces." -The New Yorker

Deutschland 83 often ... its mixture of tense action and melodrama is great fun." ★★★ F. Swietek, Video Librarian
