Capturng Raul
29 September 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

"All right, Raul's on the run with a big truck and a big bomb." Those frightening words from Jonas "Snake Dog" Blane at the 17-minute mark of this episode tell you what he and his guys' mission is in this episode, the fourth straight excellent one to begin this second season of "The Unit."

"Snake Dog," is in El Cajon, Mexico, which is near the California border. They are watching some bad guys and trying to intercept a package they have. After a big firefight, it's discovered those guys weren't bringing in something. Instead, they were bringing in someone - "Raul," an international terrorist from Indonesia, the world's deadliest munitions expert - and he got away and is heading to California.

Meanwhile, in the secondary story back at the base, Kim's boss needs a quick interview to fill in some dead air time and hooks her into it, in which she makes a few comments about it being a tough life in the military. She then goes to pick up her daughter at school and sees the girl talking to someone, who drives off. The girl tells her mom it is a teacher, a "Mr. Marlantes." Back home, talking to the other wives, Kim finds out there is no "Mr. Marlantes" at the school. Who was this guy talking to her girl and what does he - or someone else - want?

Without spoiling anything, the endings to these two stories wound up surprising to me, in that the "action" story wound up a little too unbelievable and the "domestic" very clever.
