Episode Summary

EDIT
The Death of Thomas Magnum Jr.
AIRED:
During a routine trip to their underwater sea-lab, the blue team's submarine is attacked by a pack of suicide-bomber dolphins. Realizing the attack was just a prelude for the Red Team's amphibious assault of their Caribbean hideout, Airwolf-2, Captain Mayday sends out a distress beacon as the submarine plummets into the abyss. The crew franticly closes off the engineering bay, trapping hundreds of red shirts inside, leaving them only ten hours of air to live. Meanwhile, somewhere in Pacific, the infamous pirate/astronaut, Thomas Magnum Jr., pilots his fastest attack sub (The Underwater Antelope) toward the downed vessel. When underwater mines block his path Thomas rides his last torpedo from his own sub and reaches the crew in the nick of time. After freeing the engineers by using "a lot of hot air" to raise the sub, he then mans the deck gun and shoots down "at least a hundred" red team missiles. Thinking the coast is clear Magnum returns to the Underwater Antelope only to find that one suicide dolphin is still loose and on its way to the weakened Blue Team sub. With no torpedoes left, Magnum steers the Antelope into the mammal, sacrificing his life and saving the Blue Team from certain death. Jean Binoche then proclaims "My God... My God... he's dead. Thomas Magnum Jr. is dead". Magnum was heard crying out "Higgins... father" right before the blast.moreless
