Episode Summary

EDIT
The Bank Job
AIRED:
The Communist Resistance still has Rene and Mimi, as well as Von Strohm, Gruber, Leclerc, and the Italian army. Rene convinces the Communists that they could hold the Germans for ransom, and they let Rene and Leclerc go to act as go-betweens. Michelle suggests bombing the entire sawmill to wipe out the Germans, Italians, and Communists in one blow, but once that plan has been set in motion, they can't stop it in time to save Mimi (still in the sawmill disguised as a baby).

Unfortunately, Von Klinkerhoffen refuses to pay the 1,000,000 franc ransom, so Michelle suggests raising the ransom by robbing the vault in the local bank - after all, they have the services of the "greatest safecracker in all France." Naturally, the plan is trickier than they thought, when they get trapped inside the locked safe and need to burn some of the money to light the fuse on the explosive to get themselves out.moreless
