Until the last ten minutes, this episode is all about the trial. Harm does an adequate job in defending. But between grasping for a defense and suspecting something is amiss, he leaves the viewer as unsure as he feels. The last ten minutes, though, are fun with many twists. Harm is in his "Top Gun" form figuring out at least one of the conspiracies. How the episode ends for the defendant shows his true heart is with his fellow Marines.
The ending leaves the viewer empty. Hopefully the writers continued this story as a continuing plot. If they did it will be a very interesting one. If not, the writers are missed a chance and did a disservice to the fans. The ending implies a very large conspiracy and leaving it as is gives one not just an empty feeling but anger for its meaning to America.
