What I remember most is the scene at the warehouse/loading dock when TM picked up the "cargo." Then I remember the last scenes where Higgins and the girls' father interface. What was so wonderfully shown was the honor and respect between two enemies that lasted for 40 years. It was, though, at this point I began to wonder how Higgins was actually supposed to be close to if not slightly over 60 years old and how John Hillerman did not "look" the part. Oh well...that is TV for you.

This episode also has a time-line flub involving Higgins. In the scene right after Magnum falls into the water at the dock, the camera cuts to a shot of the estate at night and then Higgins and Mioshi (posing as Asani) having dinner. Higgins is telling her how he and her father met during WWII. Higgins says “It was 1942, Summer, I’d been transferred from the North African campaign to New Guinea and attached to the Australian 7th Division…” He goes on to say that after 6 months his unit stumbled upon Sato and his men. I believe Higgins was supposedly in North Africa in August 1942. In October 1942, Higgins was taking supplies to Chinese Guerillas in the Himalayas (J. Digger Doyle). If Higgins was transferred to New Guinea in the Summer (August) of 1942, and was there with the 7th Division for 6 months before meeting Sato and his men, then he could not have been in the Himalayas in October 1942.

I discount the Himalayas story because he was not in his right mind when telling it. He must have the date wrong and possibly other details too. The New Guinea version would be the correct one.

He looks much younger than he is because of that ancient Tibetan time portal he passed through on the way up the Himalayas in 1942.
