A new drug, sulfanilamide, has the power to cure and, in the wrong hands, the virtual power to take life or its freedoms. In his refusal to supply Doctor Martel with the drug that could save a boys life, Kommandant Richter has set in motion a chain of events that expose Louis Mendoza as a black marketeer, guiding two men to prison and nearly taking Martel with them. An islander policeman, Detective Sergeant Roy Lewis, is pressed into service by Oberleutnant Kluge. Although initially reluctant, Lewis is surprised by Kluge's compassion, and agrees to assist him in future investigations.

A courtship between Betty Ridge, a plain, 28 year old island girl and Erich Grunwald, a young German soldier, is met with anger by the locals who now refer to the girl as a 'Jerrybag'. This antagonism is only destined to increase when Betty discovers she is pregnant and Erich is then coincidentally transferred to Dresden. Clare Martel attempts to persuade Betty to leave her baby for adoption and the nagging question of Erich's true intent may cause Betty to act on this advice. The untimely death of Erich during the invasion of Russia and the constant belittling by the locals takes its toll, but a talk with Peter soon clears her mind as to her decision.
Episode 10: Treason
Original TX date: 25/3/78
Retired British Major-General Laidlaw would welcome death. Having married a well known German singer following WWI, who has since left him to travel in celebrity status, he is suspected of being a Nazi sympathizer and, therefore, untrustworthy. Ironically, a high ranking German general, General Von Wittke, lands on the island, hoping to engage Laidlaw in a secret mission to depose Hitler. The Gestapo and the SS are not far behind on the trail of discovering the true reason behind Von Wiittke's visit to Laidlaw... his brother-in-law.
