David has been staying with a soldier. When the soldier wakes up one night and learns he's blind, he tells David that earlier he tagged along with a man who was disposing of things from the base and among them is a tank. He thinks the tank may have had a gas in it. David tries to recover it but someone takes it away from him. It seems like the tank contained a chemical weapon. When the base commander learns of this, feeling that this whole thing shouldn't jeopardize his career wants it keep quiet. That's why he sent the man to recover and dispose of it. David then goes to see the base doctor and tells him about it. Suddenly David goes blind. While the commander doesn't want to tell David anything, the doctor does like the fact that the formula he's working on is the antidote. But David who saw it before going blind thinks he knows what the answer is. But commander refuses to release him so the wife of the soldier tries to get David out. Written by

Blinded Heroes
2 May 2017 | by flarefan-81906See all my reviews

The moral themes of the series play second fiddle to pure drama this time around, and that's okay because the drama is top notch. Okay, the depiction of going blind is hilariously bad; the father gets up in the middle of the night, turns on a light, and says "The damn bulb is broken again." Even more hilarious, we're told his friend died after driving through a road sign that said "Do not enter". But while "hero goes blind" has been done before, it works great because it's an obstacle that the Hulk's strength can't overcome.

That's just the beginning of the drama, too. The family mother does some great espionage stuff, and the climax takes the classic Hulk action to new heights as he has to battle a whole jeep full of soldiers and even a tank. The whole episode is well-paced and exciting at every step, and as always the heroes of the cast are likable.

The ending is solid, allowing the viewer to fill in some obvious blanks. It's also good that even though the army doctor did the right thing in the end, he still gets court-martialed. Not because I want him to suffer (I don't), but because it's important to not send the message that you can commit crime without facing the consequences, the way "Vendatta Road" did.
