Episode 6 : Stay Frosty Review

The penultimate episode: Stay Frosty.

A humanitarian crisis is highlighted with the movement of fleeing Iraqi citizens from Baghdad. Murmurs of the wars ends, or at least the end of First Recons mission. But their command unit has other ideas, and the Godfathers’ plan comes to light, one last mission to cross ‘the magic line’ and head into enemy territory.

The marines further question there own mission and reason for being there. More questions than answers creates relentless tension.

One of the final scenes when Scribe questions the war really highlights this episodes dichotomy between what the government wants and what the soldiers are experiencing and reacting too. In fact this really could be the pinnacle of the series.

“That’s my recon mission then.”
– Sgt. Brad “Iceman” Colbert
