  • the unit season 4 episode 14 the last nazi

    Never send a man to do a women's job
  • The Unit must save a Nazi.

    The Unit somehow managed to make a Barry Corbin appearance boring. The man who stole scenes on Dallas, and more recently One Tree Hill was bland as day here. Robert Patrick's storyline was also as dull as they come, with an awkward sex scene and pointless, space-filling flashbacks.

    Luckily the women were kept to a minimum, but the main "heist" by The Unit was one of the worst of the season. The shooting was not exciting, Jonas didn't have any of his usual snappy lines and the rest of the cast was just sort of there.

    The Unit's fate has yet to be determined but this episode certainly did them no favors toward getting a renewal.moreless

    I love The Unit but I hated this episode. I thought that the writing was terrible and seemed very out of character. What was with Ryan and Charlotte? Since when does she chain smoke and to me it looked like she was smoking a joint in her first shot.

    I hate the storyline with Grey and that woman. One conversation in a car (previous episode) and suddenly he is in love with her? And then when her father's friend came to see Molly it just seemed to drag on and on. What was the point of them sitting at the table while Molly and Bob's wife watched on the surveillance video?

    The way that they carried out their "kidnapping" of the Last Nazi was totally botched and I thought very un-Jonas like - walking into that room ahead of that man so that he could get knocked out and how could they have missed that that woman was waiting there with a gun.

    I just thought the entire episode was poorly written and the characters were not acting like themselves.

    The worst episode of The Unit of them all IMO.moreless
  • Not the reason I watch this Show. I'm fan of the series but not this episode.

    This episode was terrible. Very disjointed in the story-lines and had me total confused. The storyline involving the Nazi being captured and returned to The Hague made the most sense. SM Jonas Blane (Dennis Haysbert) and the team are sent by the President to capture a former Nazi before a US civilian team can kill him. The later would cause problems for US foreign relations. The storyline involving Colonel Tom Ryan (Robert Patrick) and Charlotte Canning Ryan (Rebecca Pidgeon) was just bad. They way they talk to each other is just weird. Who talks like that? Why is he even with her after she burned him so bad before? The storyline, of him being offered his first star and trying to decide to take it, makes sense. He doesn't want to leave the Unit but he wants to be a General. Showing his abusive past, as a boy at the hands of his father, doesn't relate to how he is now. So what it's purpose? I can't find the episode involving Charles Grey (Michael Irby) and the young woman in this episode being protected by her father. The storyline involving Molly Blane (Regina Taylor) and the old man who is trying to buy the business did not make sense.moreless
  • Some questions are asked and some need answering.

    Jonas and the team have been ordered to capture a nazi war criminal who is residing in Switzerland and deliver him to a war tribunal in the Hague, problem is there's another faction out to assassinate him before that can happen.

    Col Ryan is being offered a chance of promotion to General but it comes with a price, to accept he must give up the Unit and this brings up some nightmares from his past and see abit of Ryan's background growing up.

    On the home front Molly is visited by Carson who starts asking questions about the aeroplane business she is fronting for and actually offers to buy her out, naturally Molly cannot do this as the business doe's not exist, further questions are asked by Carson and it comes to light he is looking out for Joss Stevens who Charles has romantic interests in, it's also discovered that she is a multi-billionaires daughter and Carson is protecting her.

    It was an okay episode in my eyes, the ending seemed a little rushed, but worth watching simply because it answers a few questions from previous episodes and it seems the network are spanning this season out with the long gaps in-between episodes making the next episode more welcoming.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Goof: The flag visible in the bottom of the screen in the last shot is not the Swiss flag but the Norwegian one. The Swiss flag is a red square with a white cross.

    • Goof: Swiss license plates always begin with two letters (an abbreviation for the Canton in which the car is registered). In this episode the license plates have three letters.

    • Goof: The "Swiss" people in this episode speak German with a very bad accent. They would, however, be speaking "Swiss German" which sounds more like Dutch than German.

    • The name of the town the team travels to in Switzerland is "Fravenfeld". There is no such place in Switzerland but a city called "Frauenfeld" in the Thurgau area.
