How can Tagomi travel to the alternate reality in which the Allies won World War II?

In the last episode of season 3 of The Man in the High Castle we are told that individuals can only travel to an alternate reality if

their alternate self had already died in the alternate reality.

This explanation is given for why

only one out of the four test subjects survived the Nazi experiment to travel to alternate realities -- the survivor, just an "ordinary" girl, was apparently the only one whose alternate self had already died in the alternate reality.

This explanation does seem to make sense as a way to avoid

the possibility of an individual meeting an alternate version of himself from another reality.

The explanation also conforms to what we know about almost all the other characters that travel between realities:

1. Trudy was killed in the reality in which the Axis won so her alternate self from "our" reality (in which the Allies won World War II) can travel to the Axis-conquered reality.

2. The alternate Trudy who traveled to the A

  • It is heavily implied that the Tagomi in our reality committed suicide, due to the shame of his son marrying a gaijin.

    As far as his family is concerned, he disappeared after the fight where he smashed the cup. He's not confirmed to be dead, but they hope he might come back some day (and in a way, he does).
