Upon speaking with the villagers, Gene eventually finds out where Korony is hiding but he is hiding from some pursuing thugs that are trying to use Gene to find Korony for themselves.

Personal Synopsis

The iron curtain has long been used as the antagonist mythical government faction that gets in the way of the covert spy. This episode uses this premise for the escape attempt of a known scientist, Korony, from the grasp of the iron curtains soldiers. I felt more comfortable with this episode as it aligned esthetically with a considerable amount of other ITC shows. The overall quality was better than previous episodes but still shines a light on its weak plot and poor execution of the acting crew.
