Easy Company fights in the Battle of Carentan, in which they lose several men. Rumors start to circulate that Lieutenant Speirs killed a group of German prisoners of war. The episode focuses on Private Albert Blithe, who struggles with shell-shock following the battle. After he is finally spurred into action by Winters during the Battle of Bloody Gulch, Blithe overcomes his fears. Several days later, he is shot by a German sniper after volunteering to be lead scout in a patrol (the ending erroneously states Blithe died from his wounds in 1948; in fact, he recovered and continued to serve in the Army until his death in December, 1967).
