I didn't really care for this one overall. I will say that the start of Klinger's story was pretty good, as he stood up to the soldier, and offered the girl money. That actually really strengthened his character IMO. But the rest of his story wasn't really that great. I especially dislike the fact that both Potter and Margaret both at least temporarily think that Klinger could have done something like that.

And the story with the racketeering soldier also fell flat for me. I'd say the most interesting part was Hawkeye having to find a way to tell his parents. I actually really liked the letter he wrote. But other than that, I don't think it was that interesting.

I agree, profiteering soldiers should've been nothing new to Hawkeye....my least favorite part of the episode is right after Hastings dies, the camera zooms in on an out-of-breath Hawkeye who says "when are we gonna find a cure for the common war. A prime example of the type of cringe inducing writing that made season 8 so un-popular
