Joe Luke Kleintank and Frank Rupert Evans were both killed at the end of last season, but given the existence of a multiverse of alternate Earths, the actors could have been brought back as alt-versions of their characters.
Not only does that not happen, but Ed DJ Qualls is nowhere to be seen and, most surprisingly, Tagomi Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa , the man who first pierced the dimensional barrier, exits early in the new season.
The wounded Juliana falls into the path of a car and is rescued by the driver and his son. They happen to be John Smith and his son Thomas, who is very much alive on this alternate Earth.

Edit Cast Series cast summary: Alexa Davalos Juliana Crain 40 episodes, Joel de la Fuente Inspector Kido 40 episodes, Rufus Sewell John Smith 40 episodes, Chelah Horsdal Helen Smith 36 episodes, Brennan Brown Robert Childan 34 episodes, DJ Qualls Nobusuke Tagomi 30 episodes, Rupert Evans Frank Frink 26 episodes, Luke Kleintank And if you sensed the obvious sexual tension between Joe and Juliana in the two released episodes of the show, you aren't wrong that there's a highly likely chance that those two will get it on since Juliana and Joe whose last name is Cinnadella in the book, not Blake do have a sexual relationship in Dick's novel.
And it should be noted that Frank is of Jewish descent in both the novel and show. I am never one to complain when Rufus Sewell shows up in a show or movie, but the British actor's menacing Obergruppenführer John Smith was not a character from the book.
His addition is justified, as Sewell said at Comic-Con , by the fact that Smith "represents the great majority [of Americans who] have just normalized.
But with eight more episodes to go — and Robert being a character listed on IMDb — I wouldn't get too concerned about missing characters just yet.
When Juliana first appears on screen, she's practicing the martial art of Aikido. In the novel, it's Judo. Though Judo and Aikido are similar practices and the difference could be viewed as just an oversight by the series, Spotnitz is aware of the edit.
The character Tagomi mentions consulting the Oracle, or the I Ching. This stays true to Dick's novel as the I Ching is used by Tagomi to look to the future, but one difference is that Juliana and Frank also use the I Ching which hasn't been something shown on the series yet.
The I Ching is a real book from China that uses hexagrams, which matches what Tagomi said in the first episode about consulting the Oracle and getting the 29th Hexagram, meaning "Darkness.
Pay attention. While the changes Spotnitz and his team have made from the book aren't too radical, the most interesting reveal is yet to come.
As for Hitler, while elderly, he is apparently mostly hale in his Season 1 finale appearance, though other characters elsewhere in the season do refer to his supposed physical infirmity.
In the novel, the Italian Empire is a minor power that controls North Africa and the Middle East; in the series, it is shown through maps that these territories are part of the Nazi Empire, suggesting that either the Italian Empire was annexed after the war or is self-governing within the Reich.
The drying of the Mediterranean has never happened, though a slightly similar event is mentioned by a character in Season Two as being planned.
Characters from the book that do appear are in most cases far more fleshed out with deeper and sometimes rather different backstories than their novel originals.
Wegener is a Standartenführer in the Schutzstaffel SS , rather than a naval captain. Rather than being a member of an organized internal resistance and despite his relatively low rank Wegener is a confidante of Hitler and his disillusion with the regime appears to be largely personal.
Juliana and Frank are unmarried but living together, rather than divorced and separated. Frank has a sister, nephew and niece, although they are killed early in the series and this propels him into a more active role in relation to the resistance.
Juliana also has a sister whose murder by the Kempeitai early in the season instigates her search for the mysterious Man in the High Castle, as well as her having a mother and stepfather who are significant supporting characters.
Joe Cinnadella is renamed "Joe Blake" though he uses his novel name and backstory while undercover in Season 3 , as he becomes closer to Juliana, appears to have growing doubts about his role as a Nazi agent.
Robert Childan starts season 1 as a minor character but later becomes a main protagonist, starting a trade in the Pacific States and in the Neutral Zone, while Ed McCarthy has a rather more prominent and active role, being revealed as homosexual in Season 3.
There are several major additional characters introduced by the television series and numerous narrative details and plot elements differ radically from the source novel.
The planned Nazi nuclear attack on Japan, "Operation Dandelion", is apparently being prevented only by Hitler's refusal to authorize it, leading Heydrich and the pro-Dandelion faction to plot the Führer's assassination.
Hawthorne Abendsen does not appear in the first season of the television version and The Grasshopper Lies Heavy is a series of newsreel films depicting multiple alternative realities rather than a novel although this idea may be borrowed from Dick's later novel, VALIS , which features a mysterious film depicting yet another dystopian alternative history of the United States.
As of the Season 1 finale, these films are being tracked down by SS agents like Blake for dispatch to Hitler for an unknown purpose.
In season two, a map of the world is shown on John Smith's wall. On this map, Japan controls the entirety of the Pacific Ocean and most of the Asian continent, including China, India and half of Russia.
There are also buffer zones between the empires; Neither empire seems to have invaded Mexico and this neutral zone continues up through the Rockies and through Canada.
A similar neutral zone is seen dividing Russia in two. Season two also shows the different lives in the Japanese-controlled Pacific states and the German-controlled east.
The Germans have colonized the eastern states and are assimilating its inhabitants into Nazi beliefs.
The Japanese Empire is occupying the Pacific states rather than colonizing them. There is enforced segregation between Japanese and Americans citizens.
It is implied that Native Americans were exterminated by the Germans and that the Japanese exterminated the Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, along with most Alaska natives.
Season 3 was released in and season 4 in , with each season having 10 episodes. In a interview, Dick said he planned to write a sequel novel to The Man in the High Castle : "And so there's no real ending on it.
I like to regard it as an open ending. It will segue into a sequel sometime. Somebody would have to come in and help me do a sequel to it. Someone who had the stomach for the stamina to think along those lines, to get into the head; if you're going to start writing about Reinhard Heydrich, for instance, you have to get into his face.
Can you imagine getting into Reinhard Heydrich's face? Dick , a collection of his essays and other writings. The novel eventually became a new story unrelated to The Man in the High Castle.
