Tonight on THE UNIT: After seeking aid for a critically wounded Mack at a remote monastery, Jonas must steal a holy relic guarded by the monks; and Bob performs a mission that will reveal the darkest side of his job to Kim.
In the Chilean mountains, Mack lies injured, the result of bad weather and a torn parachute. Bleeding from the head, he looses consciousness. Jonas hears approaching soldiers, and carries Mack off into the darkness towards a giant white tree. Reaching the tree, Jonas sees an ancient monastery; he goes inside, and asks the monks for help. They begin to tend to Mack, who has stopped breathing. Jonas asks for a phone, and Father Sebastian says he must first hand over his guns. Jonas complies, and is pointed to a WWII-era radio. In Colonel Ryan’s TOC, Jonas gets through on an emergency channel and reports Mack’s injury. He requests a medivac. He says they are at the Saint Maurice Monastery, but is unable to provide exact coordinates. Ryan says the nearest extraction team has been grounded due to the weather, and tells Jonas to wait for a break. Later that night Ryan is visited by his ex-wife Charlotte. She is working for the Secretary of Defense, and says that her bosses want a holy relic the monks at Saint Maurice possess. Ryan radios Jonas, and tells him the news: he needs to steal the spear that pierced Christ’s side.
