  • for me a bad episode

    in this episode nothing happend for me, nothing at all. The remembering of a war story for a son that is now a reporter makes no sence of the baseline for this series. I think that director and writers must keep the story telling to the actual facts that they started.
  • Very good!

    I know many viewers don\'t like the wives\' storyline, but in this show they make perfect sense! Wars are fought everywhere, even in our own homes. The men don\'t say what they do and the women keep their secrets also. It\'s this constant duality that keeps me wathching this great show!

  • Keith Soto the son of an old unit soldier arrives to find out the truth about his dad's death. Meanwhile Molly locates con woman who cheated her out of her investment fund.moreless

    The son of a dead soldier from the Unit comes to ask about the real death his dad. This was more a melodramatic episode but still entertaining. A young man Keith Soto

    seeks the real details for the death his father a member of the old Unit. Jonas lies throughout the episode to hide the real the truth. Keith is determined to find the truth but as a reporter Jonas doesn’t’ want the truth to get out and make the Unit look real bad.

    Bob is approached by an attractive widow, Juliet Nichols , who might have sex and a proposition in mind for him.

    Anyways as Jonas tells his different versions of how Keith’s dad died we see that perhaps he was killed as a prisoner of war but that Colonel Ryan probably messed up any attempt at rescuing him. However as we see by the end

    though Jonas may be the one that killed the son's dad.

    Hmmm I didn't the episode as much as the other one, almost

    no action, and it's obvious by what Jonas was doing that he was covering up his mess by lying to the kid.

    Molly's confrontation with the woman who cheated her while

    interesting did not have a great climax. I can't believe

    she just sat there and took what she gave her amidst her

    cheap threats.

    Still a good episode in terms of seeing Jonas, Ryan and others as part of the old unit team.


Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • During this episode, the term BOHICA was seen etched on a knife. Jonas explains this to mean, "Bend Over Here It Comes Again". This term would appear in a later episode.

    • The story that Colonel Ryan was telling a few of the widow's is an actual story. During Operation Urgent Fury Eric Haney's squadron was deployed to Grenada as part of the invasion force; his squadron was tasked with the capture of Richmond prison. As they approached, the helicopter in which he was in took heavy fire, a friend beside him screamed that he was hit. Haney, looking for the wound, found something sticky and white: the bullet had pierced the operator's tooth paste bottle.

    • The storyline from this episode comes straight out of Eric Haney's book, Inside Delta Force. In the book Haney operated in Central America training anti-communist guerrillas fighting against Sandista sponsored guerillas, during one mission Haney is ordered to neutralize the suspected leader of the guerrilla force; the leader turned out to be a friend that Haney had met during selection.
