Their captors are Chava Apfelbaum (the lady of the season opening scene)his assistant George, and of course the double cross Sister Harriet. Chava explains how they couldn’t allow the Hunters to mess up their operation and so they had to intervene. The hunters were really just bait, a distraction so they could catch Klaus Rheinhart for themselves.

Rhinehart is hanged from the rafters in a medieval torture device. Chava asks him where Hitler is and Rhinehart pleads that he doesn’t know. The Nazi is brutally crippled for his lies, but manages to reveal a person who may know Hitler’s whereabouts, an individual simply referred to as the Crow. The Raven’s courier was to bring Adolf a briefcase. Jonah has the mail key, which acts as another clue in the puzzle. Jonah hands over the hotel key and offers that they all work together to find Hitler.

Chava agrees to these terms and begins freeing the hostages, although it is only a ruse. Jonah takes George’s gun and the others go into action. Jonah informs Chava that they won’t be joining forces after all. Chava starts talking about Meyer and mention at Ruth’s Last name. Jonah asks how she knows Ruth, his grandmother. Chava confesses that Ruth is his older sister. She shows Jonah a picture of the two sisters, then proves she’s telling the truth with detailed facts. Chava clearly loved Ruth. Millie breaks up this beautiful moment to ask why they need to team up. Chava admits that their numbers are dwindling, their team of twenty soldiers has been reduced to just three.

The combined teams formulate a plot. Chava suggests going to the hotel, planting the briefcase, and luring the Raven out into the open. They will then catch the crow and torture it for information, hoping to lead the gang directly to Hitler. In the hotel, Mindy scans the courier’s room and determines the meeting point. Jonah and Chava are waiting for the Raven to show up at the restaurant that night. Lonny and Georges watch the briefcase from the bar, and the girls disguise themselves to infiltrate the hotel unnoticed, looking for the Crow’s henchmen.

While waiting for their award, Jonah and Chava discuss their family and ranks. Jonah will not take orders from his great-aunt, stating that he has earned his role as leader. He killed the Wolf and he stopped the Fourth Reich. Chava talks about his mistakes in Spain, when the gang last abandoned him, but he refuses to say what really happened. Chava decides to place a bet to see who deserves to be the leader of the group. Whoever discovers the crow’s identity wins and the loser buys dinner.

Lonny and George stare at the briefcase unattended, waiting for an accomplice to come forward. The duo talk about Lonny’s and Roxy’s films, which Lonny is still in love with. Lonny begins to drink and snort drugs in the toilet, possibly due to the mounting pressure. Georges criticizes Lonny’s lack of professionalism.

The ladies roam the halls of the hotel, having spotted Crow’s thugs’ hotel room. On the road, Roxy is angered by Sister Harriet’s treacherous ways and asks why she never told Ruth the truth. Jonah asks Chava the same question as they analyze each guest, one by one. Chava explains how she escaped the concentration camps, but assumed Ruth was dead. She didn’t know her sister was still alive. Meanwhile, the ladies infiltrate the henchmen’s room and a bloody battle begins. It’s solid action, with brutal violence and thrilling choreography.

Lonny and Georges watch a stranger take the briefcase, then the duo sets off in pursuit. Jonah and Chava receive a note which means the henchmen have been taken care of. The plan is working so far, but Jonah is eager to get involved. He goes to the women’s toilets where he corners an old lady, it’s the Raven. She refuses to give Hitler’s location and Jonah stabs her to death in response. Coming back to the table, it’s clear that Chava already knew who the Raven was. They were both playing mind games with each other. Anyway, Jonah now has Crow’s purse and train ticket, another clue.

The ending explained

As the hunters play their spy games, an intertwining flashback follows Meyer’s own detective. In 1975, he tracked Viktor Frondeheim. He tells the fellow Nazi he killed Fritz and will now silence Viktor too. The Nazi shows him a cabinet containing hundreds of files he has hidden over the years. He hands Meyer his file on Wilhelm. Viktor offers to burn the file, to end it. But Meyer just wants him dead. Viktor pleads for his life, begging on his knees, but Meyer doesn’t shy away from him to shoot on.

Returning from that crime scene, Meyer drives in a daze with blood still fresh on his face. He is pulled over for speeding and manages to escape without revealing his murderous secret. Back to the office, Simon Wiesenthal confronts Meyer, convinced that it was his friend who killed Viktor. Meyer denies any involvement and Simon tells him not to sink to the level of the Nazis. He has been warned. It’s a great exchange, with stunning acting from Al Pacino. In a symbolic finale to this story arc, Meyer burns his files, killing Guillaume for real.

In 1979, the gang hastily got away from the action. Millie realizes her bracelet is missing and is horrified to conclude that it must have fallen off during the Bishop’s murder. She is now caught up in a murder trial. Will she accept her responsibilities or run away from her problems, move on? Jonah has his own issues. He is pictured walking back into the hotel and then bumps into his fiancee Clear, who believes he is having an affair. She came all the way to confront him.

The final scene of the episode focuses on Adolf Hitler. He is told that the Raven was killed by the Hunters. Adolf will inform Joe of this news, stating that they have prepared for this eventuality. Adolf orders Joe to find the Hunters and return with their scalps. An old ally is now ready to kill our dysfunctional heroes.
