[A truly masterfully written episode. Compare this episode with the season 10 episode “San Diego”, filmed to please CBS minions wanting the “younger demographic,” with its: intrusive space-ship music; vertiginous, aimlessly wandering photography; disgustingly confusing character morality; and superficial entertainment despite a moderately interesting core plot. This was a well written and delivered episode. Music was grand, photography larger than life, character development captivating and script (as C said) “heroic.”]
JAG officers Harm (H) and Meg (Mg) investigated the death of USN Pilot, Lt Douglas Marion, the son of unforgiving Senator Grace Marion, during a SEAL “black op” mission; but, they were “stonewalled” by the entire group until finally they charged the whole team with obstruction of justice. Marion’s autopsy showed massive injury from his fall after his parachute didn’t open but also hypoxic coma which revealed some of the groups previous lies.
