  • I guess you can't always escape your past

    This episode pretty much gets the low rating it deserves, this is kind of dull. The entire time, it is mainly about the personal torment of an ex-Nazi who wants to forget the past but can't due to people chasing him and an old man who knows he has seen the Nazi before. All this man wants is peace and to go fishing on a lake like in the painting he admires at the museum. Compared to the first two, this story just doesn't feel like much. I was actually bored in some parts. The worst thing is, the ending is predictable. A minute before the ending, it is obvious what happened before you actually see it. Even though it is predictable, it is still a fairly interesting ending
