Summary[edit | edit source]
While attending a concert in Washington, D.C., Jessica gets involved with two East German defectors and a murder.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
Per the title, The White Rose was a resistance group in Nazi Germany consisting of students and professors from the University of Munich whom offered nonviolent resistance to the the Nazis.
Bernard Fox (Andrew Wyckham) and Eric Braeden (Col. Brunner) who appear together in this episode, both starred in Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo and Titanic.
While Franz and Greta are talking to Jessica the first time, Franz said, Greta and he could not have escaped East Germany without the help of Conrad Schumann. Conrad Schumann was the first person who escaped over the Berlin Wall that lived to tell about it.
Michael Anderson Jr. (Dr. Lynch) and Jenny Agutter (Margo) also co-starred together on the movie Logan's Run (1976).
Victim: Jack Kendall
Killer: Andrew Wyckham
Cause of death: Stabbed.
Motive: Kendall recognized him from "White Rose" and he feared he might realize his plans to assassinate the British Prime Minister.
When Jessica saw how Andrew Wyckham & Jack Kendall reacted in seeing each other, she spotted that they knew each other, but yet Andrew & Jessica didn't know that the chauffeur was replaced by Jack Kendall until Andrew & Jessica was being ushered into the limo, so was there a need for Wyckham to fear that he was identified, especially, when there was no scene showing Wyckham killing Jack Kendall ?
