S1 Ep 8: The Last Patrol
Written by Erik Bork and Bruce C. McKenna
Directed by Tony To
Easy Co. arrives in the Alsacian town of Haguenau near the German border, and are ordered to send a patrol across the river to take enemy prisoners. Lt. Jones (Colin Hanks), fresh from West Point and eager for combat experience, volunteers to lead. While successful, the mission costs another paratrooper's life, prompting Winters (Damian Lewis) to ignore the order to send a second patrol the next night.
