John Carter returns to the Congo to retrieve Luka Kovac's body. He finds however that the area where was killed is still too dangerous to enter. He and Gillian finally manage to hitch a ride with a Red Cross worker, Debbie, who is going to the area. In flashbacks, we learn how Kovac and his fellow aid workers were taken prisoner by rebel troops. They are shot, one at a time, until only Luka is left. Amid the destruction of the eastern Congo, we learn his fate. Carter also makes a fateful decision. Written by garykmcd

Debbie: If any of the various armies or militia involved in this mess knew we were giving money to the enemy, money that could buy weapons and food, we'd be dead. And I don't mean "dead in the water," I mean "head mounted on a sharpened stick" dead.

heart wrenching
2 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I missed ER the year that they went to the Congo, so I'm catching up on the show pretty late. This episode was particularly heart wrenching. My favorite part was Luka looking around at the moment before he is to die and becoming overwhelmed in the moment...i think things must have become crystal clear in that moment, what a way to find your way back to God. Great actors, great episode. I'm sure I have to see upcoming episodes to understand why carter chose to stay, yes I understand the moral aspect, but maybe the woman has something to do with it too? It's no wonder this is one of the longest running shows on TV .

I think its crazy that IMDb is making me type ten lines of text in order to past a comment? I have to sit here and make up something or just babble to make up a minimum word count. too silly.
