  • Radar struggles with the thought of leaving.

    The indispensable man? For me, there were two brilliant parts to this episode. Firstly, where Radar and Hawkeye argue about Radars decision to stay. Hawkeye's reaction was so true to character, it was breathtaking. Essentially, his love for people, especially Radar, moves him to almost hostility at the thought of anyone, especially a friend, willingly staying in a war-zone. The second, was the teddy bear left behind for Hawkeye. It was a symbol of decency, and though Radar changed over the years, he never lost his decency. It was sad to see Radar go, but I feel his character had given all he could to the show.
