Charlie DeSalvo: When I was in the Seals, I saw guys with eyes like yours. The lifers. The ones who'd gone to too many battles and never came all the way back.
Duncan 'Mac: Well, I guess that describes me pretty good.
Charlie DeSalvo: It don't begin to describe you and we both know it.
Duncan 'Mac: You're playing psychologist and detective all in one night, Charlie. You're pushing your luck.

one of the no immortal epis
4 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Not a fave but has some funny/good parts, opening with Charlie and Mac, course Charlie really don't know Mac has big advantage, hmm except with maybe boxing, also a bit of background on Charlie. Also return of Joe, and again, "lets not get this as a habit" as Joe asks Mac to get involved with a poss immortal, but they don't yet know as (title) the zone is a very bad place. Not polite to eavesdrop, (would really have been interesting if he could have overheard the immortal part) but Charlie thinking Mac in over his head, well in a way is, but not the way Charlie thinks.

Course Charlie don't listen, follows mac, Mac knows this, gives in, sees that don't have a choice (Richie out of this, Mac don't want him there either when Charlie suggested), and Charlie says its even worst than when he grew up there, but there is 1 person who supposedly didn't give up or in, so takes Mac to meet her, Asia.

The back story, only sorta fit, with miners and the bosses son working them unknown to both his dad and his co workers, and him shot by those his dad sends/brings to well kill, did the dad learn, probably not from what history has written.

Canaan, the 1 Joe not sure of isn't immortal, just a very bad guy preying on those with nothing, only the most we all have, life, to loose. Charlie seeing youth being given a gun, decides he is stepping in, as Mac says Canaan not who he thought but with Charlie, well theys involved, and while Charlie talks to Tio, Mac "found" taken by surprise, well hit from behind, and Charlie see Mac go into the lake/river/water, cant tell what they wanted it to be, dives in to save Mac but...tbc

Macs sarcasm to Joes hows the water, wet, funny. But not over, as Mac gets involved even though no immortal, Joe only kinda gets it, as cops wont do anything there and Canaan is evil.

tbc...Love Charlie in the dark attacking Mac, mind you thinks he must be dead, and the this is getting to be a bad habit again, and the conversation about the water and how cold it was, "woke" Mac up and Charlie says he knows, spent half an hour looking for Mac. Was there for a friend, now Mac is going for himself, going to "clean up" and well poor Tio and Asia, was on the take but, Poor Charlie but but Mac gets he and Asia out of cold and kicks butt.

Bittersweet ending, though my thinking, wish Mac told him about immortals then, (ok yes understand Macs thinking/reasoning not to tell but) or at least after well wont spoil for another epi here in case someone reading this is watching for 1st time or rewatching after yrs and cant remember or was to young to remember, (me with the original Bionic woman). Charlie is a great friend to have.
