Storyline

Easy Company's next objective is to take the town of Carenten where they engage in street to street fighting with a doggedly determined enemy. The fighting is hard and there are many casualties. Having pushed the Germans out, Easy Company now has to hold the position and soon face a counter-attack from German forces, including artillery and tanks. For Pvt. Albert Blythe, the pressure and stress pushes him to the breaking point. He even suffers from hysterical blindness but soon recovers with a few words of encouragement from Winters. After 36 days in battle, Easy Company is finally relieved and get to return to their base in England. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The scene where George Luz decides not to throw a grenade into a room before clearing it and finds frightened civilians actually happened to Edward "Babe" Heffron in Holland. The writers heard this story from Babe and decided to include the event with different soldiers involved. See more »

Goofs

Before the battle ensues in the hedgerow Frank Perconte says "It's 9:30 in the evening back home". The time difference between France, and EST is 6 hours, meaning it would make it 3:30 am in the scene. It is clearly light outside, when the earliest sunrise in France at that time of year is 5 am.
