Episode Summary

EDIT
The Hollow Man
AIRED:
An escaped POW, 1st Lieutenant Wally Bolen returns to the 918th after 5 months of captivity. He is welcomed by Komansky and promoted to Captain by Gallagher. At the officer's club, they are having a welcome back party; his "girl" Ruth is there along with Ken Shaw, a press corps journalist and his buddy Chuck Nielson. Also there are Captains Lewis & Stewart, former fighter pilots. Bolen wants to fly again and gets checked out by Gallagher. The Group is going to be bombing Battenheim again. They will be sending a pathfinder group of 3 in at a low altitude to mark the target. Gallagher chooses Bolen as Flight Leader, and Lewis & Stuart who both have low level experience. On a practice mission, Bolen orders Lewis & Stewart to close up, Stewart flies to close and collides with Bolen's aircraft. Bolen freezes and his plane hits Lewis' plane. Stewart's B-17 crashes, the entire crew is killed and they injure a civilian, the Rector of the Archbury Church. Bolen orders his crew to bail and everyone does except Navigator Neilson and Flight Engineer Komansky who helps Bolen belly land the plane. Bolen's co-pilot is killed when his chute does not open. Back on the ground, Bolen cracks up and starts reliving the torture he suffered again. Dr. Douglas thinks he needs psychological help. Bolen cracks completely when his Stan Neilson takes a turn for the worse.moreless
