Having just caught back up, I will say that this was another episode where I felt the humor was a significant detriment to the story. Say what you will about the degradation of military decorum amongst the Union itself, but these two guys in the midst of a life-or-death infiltration mission can’t maintain seriousness, or attempt to develop a useful backstory, or basically do anything at all a halfway intelligent person might do to not die horribly in that scenario is just mind-boggling.
I mean, I get it, they’re not infiltration experts. But I’m a big goofy cowardly dolt and I’m pretty sure I could have managed to not make a “tramp stamp” crack in response to a crazy zealot’s religious inquiry.
Aside from the humor, loved the ep, though. But goddamn this should would be perfect if it weren’t a comedy.
Man, I knew there had to be some reason I was digging this show!
