Prisoners of War
21 April 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Susan St. James plays a war correspondent who immediately is attracted to Hunnicutt. She is striking and impressive in every way. Of course, Hawkeye begins to act like the class clown, trying every lame move available to him to get her to notice him. After a while, it becomes a little embarrassing (of course, that's the way his character was created). The thing is that B.J. begins to have serious feelings for her and she for him. The focus is a soldier that she became friends with and who has a series of complications. Soon the camp is talking about the possibility of a romance, even though he is doing everything he can to keep his distance. There is a real sadness to this and yet we know where the heart of the doctor is. There was a previous episode where he nearly crossed the line he put in the sand. Good episode.
