Episode Recap

After receiving guidance from a mystery man, Peter Vollmer becomes a popular neo-nazi speaker. A life-long friend, Ernst Ganz, interrupts one of his speeches and slaps Peter viciously. The crowd then sees Peter as he really is - a pathetic little man. His mystery man reveals himself to be Adolf Hitler, and orders Peter to kill Ernst. He obeys, and is later shot by police. Peter can't believe he's been shot. "There's something wrong here... Don't you understand that I'm made out of steel," he says after being shot.
