The End of an Era, 17 April 2015
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

This is Gary Burghoff's last episode. After receiving news of his uncle's death, Radar must pass the torch to Klinger, who is amazingly incompetent. The key issue is getting a generator, the loss of which is having a profound effect on the camp. At one point, Radar tells everyone that the camp needs him and he has changed his mind about leaving. This forces Klinger to finally get off the mark and start to use his abilities. Klinger ends up at a supply unit and has to use elements of his past to pull off a switcheroo. This has an ending that will stay with you if you haven't seen it before. Like so many good series, this one managed to continue, despite the loss of significant characters.
