He is the one who makes the films, who runs the network of spies, and who has somehow glimpsed alternate futures and pasts. But who is The Man in the High Castle?
In the latest season 2 trailer for the Amazon Prime show, Juliana (Alexa Davalos) is taken to meet him in his “castle,” which appears to actually be a warehouse. But there may be questions about her loyalty to one cause or another. In the first trailer we saw her meeting with Obergruppenführer John Smith (Rufus Sewell) and seeking sanctuary with the Nazis to escape the Japanese. Now, there are rumors she may be an assassin.
Speaking of Obergruppenführer Smith, his son, which last season was diagnosed with a progressive illness appears to be alive and as Hitler-youth as ever. This adds to Smith’s growing anti-heroism. He’ll push a guy off a building and remain loyal to Hitler rather than side with usurpers but he also won’t kill his own son, despite heavy implication that he must, simply because he has a crippling disease.
After successfully visiting another reality at the end of season 1, Tagomi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) seems to bearing the burden of knowledge with difficulty. Is he able to prevent certain events from happening? Or is he cursed with seeing other realities that he can never build within his own?
We also get a glimpse at Joe (Luke Kleintank) who seems to have successfully reintegrated himself into the Nazi society. His father is apparently one of the most powerful men in the country but Joe is determined to forge his own path. It’s also unclear whether Joe’s father is alive, as we previously believed he was dead.
Could his father be Hitler or another well-known Nazi such as Himmler? We’ll have to wait until December 16 to find out.
