  • Wow...this episode made me shiver.

    God damn it...that episode was say the very least. It made me shiver...brought tears to my eyes...gave me goosebumps.
    War is reaching its end as the allies starts to invade Germany. But in Germany, they discovered Nazi concentration camps. I`ve heard of such camps before but never really imagined the horrors. And that was disturbing...the energy present when the soldiers discovered those people left starving to with the corpse of their love ones, made me shivered..big time. I was literally speechless. The worst part of this is that it really happened, people were really left like`s inhuman, yet it happened.
    Also, we saw that Nick is having some trouble dealing with the reality of war as his wife wants divoce and is taking everything, even the dog (Oh those Girls :D) But when Nick had to face the reality of those concentration camp, can this pain even be compared to his?
    Excellent episode to say the least.
