I thought this was a strong way to open the season. The main plot with Hawkeye may have been kind of similar to past episodes in a way, with him being held at gunpoint by a Korean soldier, but I loved the actual meat of that story, with Hawkeye helping to try and save the wounded boy's life, and getting to kind of care about his life, and the loss that the soldier felt after the boy died. The end, with Hawkeye going back to help dig the grave was very touching IMO.

And I thought the bridge story served as a nice comedic counter-part to Hawkeye's story. I really liked the rivalry between Potter and Charles, Charles taking out his frustrations on BJ and Margaret, and then the twist at the end.
