Right now, I can't find the words to describe how awesome this series is.
This is another one of the pivotal emotional moments in the series. With all the losses the other squadrons seem to suffer, JT has always seemed to be the lucky one holding on to the very same squad he's had since the beginning of the war suffering very few casualties... until now. With the loss of Alice Noretti and now his best friend DeLeon, the war weighs heavy on JT's shoulders as it does on his squad. Alec, unlike Alice, was an established character and a valued friend amongst them all. It's even more tragic that he and Weston were unable to express their true feelings for each other before the end. But at least it was a lesson learned for JT Marsh and Colleen O'Reilly as DeLeon hinted to Colleen not to make the same mistake.
This is a real tear jerker of an episode.
