A Vietnamese boy living on the streets goes to see Magnum and wants him to find his American father who served in Vietnam. Magnum is asked by Mac to help with a sting he's planning on some extortionists putting the squeeze on some small business owners. He agrees to help if Mac helps him find the boy's father. Magnum also learns that a woman whom he was suppose to meet was killed. What he doesn't know is that the woman was with the boy before she was killed and placed something in his bag. A politician, Masters is endorsing, wants to help the boy. Magnum and the others are suspicious of his motives. Written by

Why didn't they bring him back
11 January 2014 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

In the end of this episode, Tran Quoc chose to go back to the streets which is very sad. TC said he was going to try and see if he has any other family out there. So why not have a follow up episode where in they do find his family and they try to find him. But he gets himself in trouble. So Magnum and TC have to save him then reunite him with his family. It should be noted that Roland Harrah who played Tran Quoc would also appear in two episodes of another Bellisario show Airwolf. Who knows if they brought him back would it have an affect on his life, in other words would he still have died? As I said it's so sad. Who knows maybe he can Magnum's daughter would have made a cute couple.
