Storyline

The men of Easy Company are now in Germany, aware that the Germans are surrendering by the thousands and that the war is winding down. With more time to reflect, some of the men are wondering if it was all worth it and begin to question whether the sacrifices they and their absent colleagues have made were worth it. That question is answered when they come across a concentration camp and they see first hand the atrocities committed by the Nazis. Captain Nixon has returned from a jump behind enemy lines that did not go well and resulted in many deaths. He's drinking heavily and has been demoted from Regimental to Battalion intelligence officer. Soon after Hiltler's death, they are ordered to Bertchesgarden, the Nazi leader's mountain-top retreat.

Goofs

At the start, the date given is 11th April 1945 and Nixon is talking to a group of men from Easy Company whilst listening to four musicians playing Beethoven in a town that has suffered heavy bombing attacks. The episode flashes back to one month earlier and shows the discovery & liberation of a concentration camp by Easy Company. The final scene returns to 11th April 1945 with Nixon stating that "Hitler's dead". Hitler did not commit suicide until 30th April 1945, so the episode is 20 days out. The Battle of Berlin had not even begun by the 11th (commenced 16th April) so this is a major historical error. See more »
