Breaking the curfew, Archer stays the night and Barbara convinces him not to turn the Resistance down - he knows too much, they could kill him.

There, Colonel Mayhew is trying to do a deal to help spring the King in return for helping stop the SS having control over research at Bringle Sands. If the King is free and able to confirm Conolly's rank it would transform Britain's position in the world.

Kellermann is enraged when he hears of the King's escape and the revelation that Huth took out two patrols that morning.
