Love lost
18 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Vietnam war hangs heavy over all of 'Memories Are Forever' and you can tell from the outset that this isn't going to be sunshine and lollipops. Magnum's convinced he's spotted his dead wife in Hawaii, which has everyone (himself included) questioning his sanity. Spoiler alert: it is her, and she turns out to be a player in an intelligence operation. But she's not a spider-woman, she's a survivor, and all of this is bigger than just two forbidden lovers.

It's a story of both love and loss and very painful for our hero, but also well told. What really makes this episode is how the war is used to flesh out these characters and deepen their relationship; particularly a scene between Magnum and Higgins. When the chips are down, the static between them melts away and they're once again brothers in arms. And when we do come to an end, it really does feel like this pain will still be there when next week rolls around.

Great episode.

8/10
