Episode Summary


Upon returning from a mission we learn General Savage lost his best friend of 17 years (Joe Farrell) and can't feel anything. Upon hearing this fact, General Crowe orders General Savage to go on leave, "as far away as possible without deserting." When General Savage balks, General Crowe makes it a direct order; General Savage is to leave, the base today, on leave.

Arriving at the local train station, General Savage purchases a ticket to the farthest place away. The ticket salesman says the furthest place is an island off of Scotland (Inverness) and he buys the ticket (rail and ship). Meanwhile at the railway station a Wren officer (female Naval officer) is on her way home (on the same island) for medical leave. Each officer has their own set of loyal enlisted men with them who find them the best coach on the train. Turns out they end up together and at first don't get along. Over time, though, they work things out.

Tune in and watch the episode this episode and see things develop between these two people.
