The Man in the High Castle season 3, episode 9 recap: ‘Baku’


As the Die Nebenwelt test approaches, Juliana and her team plan their reconnaissance mission to Lackawanna. Tagomi and Smith meet secretly while Kido ties up loose ends on The Man in the High Castle.

As the Reich prepares for Die Nebenwelt tests, Tagomi calls Smith personally to organize a meeting to discuss the oil embargo and reveals he knows about Die Nebenwelt. Himmler tells Smith to meet with Tagomi and find out how much he knows in this episode of The Man in the High Castle. They meet at Abendsen’s farmhouse in Boulder, which gives Smith a chance to snoop around and discover High Castle’s identity.

Tagomi worries that the danger that he faces will spoil his relationship with Tamiko. She chooses him, despite the danger, and they kiss before he has to leave for Boulder. Smith postpones Jennifer’s test until his return.

Tagomi reveals to Smith that he provided the film of the bomb testing that stopped the war between them before. He tells him about his travels to other worlds and how he visited his dead son, which is of great interest to Smith. Tagomi gives Smith a list of Nazi defectors that he will return to the Reich in exchange for lifting the oil embargo.

Chuck is immediately on board to take down Die Nebenwelt. Others, like Ledette, wonder what good saving another world from the Nazis would do, which is a pretty selfish question. It might not do them any good in the end, but it would certainly do that other world a lot of good.
