While I’m glad that things worked out for Hazama this week, I really don’t think he should have gone back to save that guy. I really liked how Hazama notices the manipulative way that the deserter organization was trying to convince him to help. That being said, I don’t know how I feel about how convenient the episode felt. Honestly, I think calling the ambulance was the correct move even if it meant the guy might die or suffer brain damage. The fact that the guy ended up being an undercover agent felt like letting Hazama have his cake and eat it…he gets the save the guy and the organization is exposed anyway.
Next week’s episode looks to be more on the action side, putting Hazama in the middle of the Vietnam War. Given that it looks to be a multi-part arc, I’m guessing there’s not even an operation in the next episode. That probably means more explosions, right? The line in the preview asking what’s the use of saving a single life when millions are being sacrificed is interesting to me, though. It sounds like a general question about war’s purposes…let’s see how it turns out next week.
