As part of an advertising campaign for the season 1 release, an entire New York City Subway car was covered with Nazi and Imperial Japanese imagery, as seen in the show, including multiple US flags with the Imperial Eagle symbol in place of the 50 stars, and multiple flags of the fictional Pacific States.
MTA spokesperson Kevin Ortiz stated, "The MTA is a government agency and can't accept or reject ads based on how we feel about them; we have to follow the standards approved by our board.
Please note they're commercial ads. After complaints from New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio , initial reports indicated that Amazon pulled the advertisement from the subway.
It was later announced that it was the MTA, not Amazon, that pulled the ad because of pressure from Cuomo. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In Japan-occupied San Francisco, Juliana Crain receives a package from her sister, Trudy, only to later see her shot by the Japanese police.
Juliana discovers the package contains impossible footage of the Allies winning World War II. Her boyfriend, Frank, urges her to go to the police to plead her innocence.
However, Juliana lies to him and instead heads to the Neutral Zone to deliver the film in Trudy's place. A woman attempts to steal the film but escapes only with decoys.
The Japanese trade minister, Nobusuke Tagomi, meets the Nazi ambassador Hugo Reiss to finalize the details of a visit to San Francisco by the Japanese Crown Prince.

The Kempeitai kill Frank's sister and her children for his refusal to help them, but stop the planned execution of Frank when the woman who stole Juliana's bag is found with fake film reels.
Working in a Canon City diner, Juliana meets a man who she assumes is her contact. Smith tells Joe that this contact is actually an undercover SD agent working against the resistance and orders him not to intervene.
However, when Juliana goes to meet the agent, Joe drives up behind her to help her. The agent tries to kill Juliana, but she is able to throw the Origami Man over a railing to his death.
In New York, Smith is attacked by resistance fighters in an assassination attempt. Thomas Schnauz and Evan Wright. Joe spots a Nazi-allied bounty hunter named the Marshal.
The Marshal is looking for the agent Juliana killed. Joe and Juliana go to dispose of the dead agent's body and car and, while doing this, find a map which leads them to a cave where they find a dead woman and a list of names.
The list reveals that Juliana's boss from the diner was her actual contact. The Marshal realizes Juliana's true identity and tries to kill her.
In San Francisco, the Japanese Crown Prince arrives in the city. Tagomi tells Wegener to secretly contact Japanese Science Minister Shimura, during the Crown Prince's speech at the Nazi Embassy.

Kido then states that if he cannot find the gunman, he will do the same. Juliana returns home to find an angry Frank, who alludes to his time in prison.
Juliana visits her parents and learns that the Japanese killed Frank's sister and children. When she later reports to the Japanese military, she is interrogated and asked about Trudy's partner, Randall, but is ultimately let go.
Joe returns to New York from the Neutral Zone and is kidnapped by Gestapo agents and brought to Smith's office. He reports to Smith on the events in Canon City, though his report is contradicted by the Marshal's.
Smith tells Joe he has failed in his mission because the leader of the resistance escaped. Smith believes that Joe is being truthful and invites him over for Victory in America VA Day.
Nelson McCormick. Joe celebrates VA Day at Smith's house. Juliana accepts a job working for Tagomi as she continues her search for answers.

Michael Slovis. With time running out, a desperate Frank is forced to put his life on the line to help Joe. The pieces finally fall into place for Smith, as he uncovers who was behind the assassination attempt.
Tagomi is devastated when he is confronted with the consequences of his scheming, and Kido's investigation takes a dramatic turn when he makes an important discovery.
Meanwhile, Frank and Juliana, after taking possession of the new film, decide to watch it, but they are shocked to find out that the film depicts, apparently in the near future, a nuclear-bombed San Francisco in which the SS round up and execute survivors.
Frank is shown being executed by Joe, who is wearing an SS uniform. Note: Scenes at Hitler's alpine retreat were filmed at Hohenwerfen Castle.
Joe returns to New York to hand over the film to Smith and submits his resignation, but Smith refuses to accept the resignation before he delivers the film to Hitler.
Karen and Lem confront Juliana for not shooting Joe before she is tranquilized. She wakes up in the home of Hawthorne Abendsen, The Man in the High Castle, where he keeps his vast film collection.
Meanwhile, General Onoda reveals to Tagomi and his staff that the capsule that Science Minister Shimada found in his pocket contained plans for a nuclear weapon that the Empire intends to use to crush the Nazis, much to Tagomi's dismay.
Frank confronts Arnold about spying on his own family. Then, desperate to save Ed, Frank goes to ask for Childan's help. Juliana attempts to get answers from an evasive Abendsen and receives a clue that may help avert the nuclear war.
Gary Connell, the leader of the West Coast Resistance, goes against orders and tries to kill Juliana but she escapes at a Kempeitai checkpoint.
A gunfight ensues between the Resistance members and the Japanese soldiers and Karen is killed in the crossfire. Kido investigates the shootout at the checkpoint and suspects that Juliana is involved.
Frank decides to get Paul Kasoura, a defense lawyer, to help Ed. In desperation, he reveals to Kasoura that the antique goods that he and Childan sold him are fake, leading the pair to be imprisoned by the Yakuza with whom Kasoura has a connection.
Frank is almost killed by Okamura, the Yakuza leader, in the previous incident with Joe. However, he manages to convince Okamura to allow him to repay his debt for the forgery if Ed is allowed to work with him as his assistant.

Learning that he may be in Brooklyn , Juliana risks her life to reach the Nazi embassy to request asylum and leaves a letter to Frank.

He keeps this a secret from Joe. Frank learns of Juliana's defection to the Nazi states but does not believe Gary about her betrayal.

Joe is upset when his father brings him to his place of birth and reveals that he is one of the Lebensborn , an experiment to perfect racial purity.
However, he takes up his father's offer to remain in Berlin for a few more days. Kido attempts to use Onoda's approval to extradite Juliana from the Nazi states but fails and reveals his motive for visiting Smith for an unknown reason.

Kido is informed by his right-hand man Yoshida that Abendsen's burnt hideout has been found and learns that the Yakuza is also looking for the films.
Ed and Childan go to Okamura to repay their debt with the sale from Frank's forgery but are locked up in a storage room when Kido and his men pay Okamura an unannounced visit.

Juliana is left concerned that she may have caused the nuclear catastrophe that she has been trying to prevent. Heusmann is made Acting Chancellor and Joe decides to support his father.
Frank learns from Arnold that Juliana has warned them to leave San Francisco and has not betrayed him. Enraged, he confronts Gary Connell but the Resistance is determined to go ahead with the uprising.
Armed with the knowledge from Juliana and Kido, Smith misleads an imprisoned Heydrich into thinking Germany and Japan are already at war, which leads Heydrich to confirm what Smith has suspected: a conspiracy to create a pretext for war with the Japanese exists among the Nazi ranks.
Smith executes Heydrich after learning from him that it is someone else who is the mastermind behind the rush to war. Hitler dies.
Now in charge is the new chancellor, Heusmann, who is revealed to be the one to have orchestrated the looming conflict.
Chris Long. Tagomi watches a film with his alternate family on the recent test detonation of a hydrogen bomb at Bikini Atoll. Finally resolved to stop war between Japan and the Nazis, Tagomi takes the film and returns to his reality.
When Thomas confronts Juliana to learn about his condition, their conversation is secretly being recorded. Smith later learns of the tape and takes it to protect Thomas' secret.
In a televised address, Heusmann frames the Japanese for Hitler's death by poison and promises retaliation, much to Joe's horror. Frank decides to assist the Resistance in assassinating Onoda by using their homemade bombs.
Before the operation, he convinces Ed and Childan to leave San Francisco. Frank and Sarah smuggle a car bomb into the underground parking garage of the Kempeitai.
They set the bomb's timer and attempt to leave the building but they are spotted by Kido and shots are exchanged in the lobby.
Just as Tagomi arrives, the bomb detonates, killing General Onoda and his staff and collapsing most of the building.
The fates of Frank and Sarah are not shown. Tagomi and Kido, who survived the bombing, deal with the aftermath of the destruction of the Kempeitai headquarters.
Afterwards, Kido travels to New York and plays the film from an alternate Earth for Smith that appears to provide evidence that the Japanese have a hydrogen bomb.
The resistance attempts to avenge Karen's death by killing Juliana but she escapes. She then confronts and kills George Dixon who was threatening to expose Smith by broadcasting the tape of her conversation with Thomas.
Smith travels to Berlin with the film to convince his Nazi superiors not to attack Japan so as to avoid nuclear retaliation.
Smith meets privately with Himmler to expose Heusmann as a traitor. After arresting Heusmann and Joe, Himmler addresses the worldwide public from the Volkshalle , appearing to assume control of the Reich.
He publicly praises Smith for his service. The recognition that Smith receives inspires Thomas to turn himself over to the Public Health Department to be euthanized.
After traveling to the Neutral Zone, a bereft Juliana learns from Abendsen that hope remains and that her sister is alive. Finally, Lem hands over Abendsen's remaining films to Tagomi.
In Berlin, in the fall of , Joe Blake and his father are imprisoned in solitary confinement. Both have been tortured and brainwashed.
Himmler demands from Joe that he shoot his father. Trudy is in Jamestown, Colorado , with Hawthorne Abendsen and his wife, and is being cared for by Juliana.
Abendsen tells Juliana that her destiny is to replace him. Juliana wants to know how she will die, but Abendsen still refuses to tell her. Later that night Abendsen and his wife are attacked by Nazis, prompting them to leave Jamestown.
As they part ways, Abendsen tells Juliana to ask Tagomi how she dies because Abendsen sent Tagomi the remaining films.
John Smith has been promoted to Oberst-Gruppenführer Nazi equivalent of four-star general and has just returned to New York City from Berlin. There is tension between him and his wife because of the death of his son, who is honored in a special ceremony.
Joe Blake kills Erich Raeder. That's one reason that alternate histories involving the Nazis are so common and so popular. Thinking about how we could have avoided a Holocaust before is a way to figure out how to avoid another Holocaust now.
Whether musing about pre-war time traveling with Captain Kirk , or contemplating the pros and cons of killing baby Hitler , we're really trying to figure out what we should do today to prevent the worst tomorrow.
Thinking about how we could have avoided a Holocaust then is a way to figure out how to avoid another Holocaust now. For three seasons, the show has often been less interested in challenging us to do better now, and more interested in encouraging us to pat ourselves on the back.
The fourth and final season does better in this regard. But the Nazis still are treated less as a warning and more as an opportunity for self-congratulation.
Like the book, the series is set in the early 60s, in a world where Franklin Roosevelt was assassinated, Hitler developed the atomic bomb and the United States was conquered by the Axis.
The eastern U. The story focuses on Juliana Crain Alexa Davalos , a resident of the Pacific states who learns that the anti-Nazi resistance is distributing film reels which show a world in which the Allies won the war.
Over the course of the show, Juliana discovers that the films come from a real, alternate earth — our world.
And at the beginning of the fourth season, she uses psychic powers to travel there. Meanwhile, John Smith Rufus Sewell , an American who has risen to a high position in the Nazi hierarchy, works on building the technology to travel between the two worlds in hopes of conquering our universe, and every other alternate dimension, for the Reich.
Juliana uses the films of an allied victory to try to inspire people in her world; imagining a defeated Germany suggests that resistance to fascism is possible.
By the same token, watching a television series about a Nazified America is meant in part to remind us that freedom is tenuous.
To watch "The Man in the High Castle" is to reflect on how easy it could be for authoritarianism to gain a foothold here. The fourth season is overall better at driving this point home.
It does this in part by substantively engaging with America's homegrown racism for the first time. The African-American organizers of a black Communist movement, led by Bell Mallory Frances Turner , repeatedly point out that the racism and abuse they face under Axis control is not much different than the racism and abuse they faced during Jim Crow.
Fascism may be a novel dystopia for white Americans, but it's long been the status quo for black people. Smith fought the Axis as an American soldier; but after the Nazi victory, he switched sides to protect his wife and new baby.
Along the way, he had to betray Jewish friends and convince himself that American ideals like freedom and equality were ultimately not worth fighting or dying for.
The series contrasts the Nazi John Smith with the John Smith living in the other reality, our reality — an unexceptional traveling salesman. Salesman Smith lacks the worldly power of his Nazi counterpart.
But he has a much happier home life, and a much stronger moral compass. Our John Smith is a good man. But given the right circumstances, he could have been a bad one.
