Well, after that incredibly intense hour, all I have to say is, WHY AREN'T MORE PEOPLE WATCHING THIS SHOW?!!!!!
There's drama, romance, and adventure (and some pretty hot sex scenes if that's your thing!) You'll find people to love, and people to hate.
You'll find yourself rooting for Martin, rooting for Tina, and even rooting for East Germany to get its head out of the sand. But first, start with Tina because she needs a ton of support right about now!
Tina and her family were so close to getting out of East Germany on Deutschland86 Season 2 Episode 7, but Martin's desire to get his son back essentially turned him into a traitor.
If anyone is to blame for the fiasco, it's Thomas' girlfriend who ruined the podcast tape and played Tina's instead which was the beginning of the end for Tina and her family.
The only reason Martin gave up the information about Tina's whereabouts was that (even though we didn't see or hear it), Annett made a clear threat to Martin that if he didn't give up the goods, he wasn't returning to East Germany.

Getting his son has been his only priority since he left Angola, but he might have told Annett everything as a sort of payback to Thomas for having an affair with his girlfriend while he was in West Germany spying.
It was a horrible thing to do, but Martin wants his son, and, obviously, nothing is going to get in the way of his goal.
I can't imagine what's going to happen to Tina and her family, but it won't be good. She's going to be separated from her husband and daughters and who knows when she'll ever see them again.
My heart was pounding for their family from the moment they started to hide in the back of the van. At first, I thought Tina was giving her daughter some kind of poison because she didn't want to risk the very thing that ended up happening, but that didn't make any sense.
Unfortunately, the girl got fidgety and almost spoiled everything, especially after they got stopped by the East German police.
But they almost got away until Annett finally got through, and, then, it was over.

I can't believe the police shot the woman in the back. She had to have known she had no chance. Maybe she thought attempting to run was better than being put into an East German prison.
Maybe they even executed people for things like that. I don't know.
Still, it was shocking, sad, barbaric, and unnecessary.
The look on Tina's when she heard the gunshots was agonizing.
Tina and her husband had to put complete trust in a stranger to get them to the other side. It had to be one of the toughest decisions they ever made.
Their lives were falling apart..
