Berlin Station Plot: What is it about?
The first season of ‘Berlin Station’ followed Miller’s story as he tried to uncover the source of information for a famous whistleblower named Thomas Shaw. Over the course of the season, fresh-from-Langley Miller, guided by the veteran DeJean, learns to contend with the high stakes, often life-threatening world that field agents have to deal with, as he tries to complete his mission.
The second season, which takes off four months after Miller gets shot at the end of Season 1, sees Miller trying to infiltrate a far-right German political party believed to be planning an act of terrorism right before an upcoming election. After a lot of nerve-wracking drama, Miller succeeds in his mission.
