A Haunting Story
18 January 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This was one of the better episodes I've seen, maybe the best so far. It had a bit of a haunting ending as Jonas had to go back on his word to a little kid, who really needed to be rescued.

Anyway, the gist of the main story is our guys making sure that a Brazilian drug dealer didn't sell SAMs to the Islamic militants, who were going to use them to shoot down American passenger jets. How they attempt to prevent this from happening was interesting and involved a couple of deceptions.

A secondary story had Kim sticking up the base wives who need sticking up for when it comes to financial problems and other important issues, instead of which flowers to put in your front yard.

No real soap opera sidebar was in this episode, which is probably I liked it so much.
