Episode Summary

EDIT
The Pariah
AIRED:

Rated: TV G Sandy, who is out on a date notices a single German aircraft flying overhead. On his way back to the base, with his girl, he almost runs down a Master Sergeant looking for the 918th, who has a German accent. Sandy takes this Master Sergeant into custody and brings him to Col. Gallagher, who his briefing his Squadron commanders. Gallagher dismisses the MP and orders Sandy to untie the Master Sergeant. He tells Sandy the NCO is from G2 Intelligence. In reality he is a German defector who now has American citizenship and enlisted in the American Army. He has direct experience the Americans need to take out the Muhlendorf Stetten engine factory complex.

After knocking out the engine factory, Gallagher's plane has so much damage and lost enough fuel it can't get home. After considering several alternatives, Col Gallagher decides to try for the Russian lines. Falling short by only a few miles, he lands in a field controlled by the Germans, though, the Russians do see him land. Gallagher orders the Lawson to destroy the bomb sight and a German officer orders him to stop. He successfully completes the task, but at his own life.

The German's executive officer is a SS Major who has no interest in the rules of war, only for what serves Hitler and the party. Thus he looks at the master Sergeant Schultz as a traitor and spy (even though legally he's an American and an American enlisted solider). He order all of the American flyers shot. Tune in to see how it turns out; who lives and who dies; how does Col. Gallagher and Sandy get home or do they get home?
