Over There (2005): S01E09 – Spoils of War


Over There is an American action war drama television series co-created by Steven Bochco and Chris Gerolmo and produced by 20th Century Fox Television.

It premiered in the US on 27 July 2005 on FX and in Canada on 06 September 2005, on the History Television channel.


“Mrs. B” returns to the unit and is instructed to remain silent regarding her actions back home. Vanessa confesses to “Dim” about her affair, who naturally reacts with disgust. The squad is ordered to sweep for insurgents and takes refuge in a palatial home they unattended. They quickly find themselves under fire, and “Dim” is pinned down. “Mrs. B” drives a humvee through the wall the attackers had been using for cover, killing one of them; the other is taken prisoner. “Scream” chews “Mrs. B” out for her rash actions, then tells her he will nominate her for a Bronze Star. The captive, hoping to secure his freedom, reveals a cache of gold and American currency worth five million dollars, which he tells them is now theirs. The unit ponders what to do with the money, finally deciding to take $10,000 for “Mrs. B”‘s sick child. Once the booty has been secured for transport, the Lieutenant orders the unit members searched for contraband; a Cuban cigar found in the sergeant’s possession is confiscated, though none of the money is turned up. That evening, “Dim” hands “Smoke” an envelope with instructions to mail it to the States for the care of “Mrs. B”‘s son. “Dim” and “Mrs. B” seek comfort in each other’s arms. Bo is unhappy when he learns that he is to be medically discharged.
