Episode 52 - "The Lotus Eater" (Part 1 of 3)

Written by Greg Spottiswood
Produced and directed by Gregory J. Sinclair
Air Dates: November 26 & 27, 2008

Sgt. Kinsella, Pvt. Manson and Pvt. Donaldson pay a courtesy visit to Chief Khan, a former warlord who now heads an Afghan Police detachment. Their arrival coincides with a dogfight, pitting the Chief's prize Mastiff against the one belonging to The Turk, a general contractor engaged by NATO to oversee many of the reconstruction projects underway in Kandahar province. Donaldson places a 'friendly' bet on The Turk's dog, only to discover that he wagered and lost 2000.00 Canadian dollars. Now on leave, to repay his debt Donaldson accepts a job as a private security guard - strictly against regulations - escorting the The Turk and one million dollars cash between Kandahar City and Kabul. It all appears to be straightforward, until the convoy is attacked.
