Day #14. Favourite moment episode from S5

This is not a totally easy choice. But it was easier than some. My favourite S5 episode is:

'The Ojuka Situation'.

One of the things my choice of favourite episode from each series has in common with one another is a good and gripping story-line.

The Ojuka Situation' is not an exception. It does have a strong story-line that is compelling and there are moments when even though I know what's going to happen I can still be 'oh, look out', type of thing.

Another thing my choices have had in common are special moments for the boys. Again this episode has several of them.

The shoot-out on the stairs and the look that is exchanged, plus Doyle's soft but meaningful 'one down, eight to go; Bodie disobeying Cowley's order and rescuing Doyle, the 'priapismic monster' comment, 'angelfish' an the hair ruffle, the looks, closeness to name but a few. And then we have this little exchange at the end:

COWLEY: You disobeyed an order, Bodie.  I told you to stay put.

BODIE: Couldn't let them get away with it.  How d'you think you'd feel if you let them get him?

COWLEY: My concern for Ojuka has nothing to do with insubordination--

BODIE: I wasn't talking about Ojuka, sir.

Nothing else is said, but Cowley knows about whom Bodie is talking and Bodie knows that Cowley knows and Cowley knows Bodie would disobey any order given in similar circumstances. Bodie is loyal to Doyle first and foremost, then to Cowley, then to CI5 - but when push comes to shove it's Doyle who matters above everyone else. It's quite sobering really.

A very good episode indeed, worthy of my favourite.

Oh, definitely! That's got to be one of my favourite, slashiest scenes of all the episodes and I love it.

I think Ojuka's a good choice, and an example of an episode which has a lot to it i.e. the end seems to have moved on a long way from the beginning, if you see what I mean! (like, for example, Acorn).

Oh, it is a really wonderful scene - I'm glad you love it too.

Thank you. It does have a lot in it and yes, I do know what you mean.

The Ojuka Situation is still one of my favourite episodes and if you need one episode that so clearly defines slash it's this one.

The dialogue you describe is one of the best imho and yes it certainly shows where Bodie's priorities and loyalties lie.

I'm glad it's one of your favourite too, sweetheart. Oh, indeed, very much so.

It really does show that. And it's very telling as we know how loyal Bodie is to Cowley, but Doyle is his priority.
