  • This is the conclusion of a two part episode and the season 3 premiere episode. This episode saw several plot points and a few suprises.

    This episode saw several major plot points and a few funny moments.

    First was the appearance of veteran actor Sergio Calderon as "El Cajon" which in Spanish means "The Coffin". Hannibals distaste of the nickname pushes the team to come face to face with him. El Cajon has a rifle biult into his wodden leg that he clumsily uses as a weapon, and provides a funny moment at the end when Murdock slaps his knee and the gun goes off right near B.A..

    Next was Faces adoration for El Cajons daughter, Marta Dubois who played Bobbi. At the end of this episode Tawnia Baker and her fiancee Brian Leftcourt(Barry Van Dyke) get married by El Cajon (Who is a ship Captain after all) and she then leaves the show.

    The comedy of this episode, as always, was provided by Murdock who pretended to be a movie director filming a movie throughout the mission.

    Face says, in describing Bobbi, "I love this movie, especially the female co-star" to which Murdock replies "If only I can talk her agent down to $50,000."

    Also Murdock aggravates BA with a ceremonial mask and he sings "The Witch Doctor" song (oo,ee,oo,aah,ahh, ting, tang, walla, walla, bing, bang)".

    The kicker of this episode climaxes when we find out whats beyond the bend in the river, a Nuclear Reactor run by a neo-nazi general. The team overpowers the group, blows up the reactor, and captures the general.
