The men of Easy Company are now in Germany, aware that the Germans are surrendering by the thousands and that the war is winding down. With more time to reflect, some of the men are wondering if it was all worth it and begin to question whether the sacrifices they and their absent colleagues have made were worth it. That question is answered when they come across a concentration camp and they see first hand the atrocities committed by the Nazis. Captain Nixon has returned from a jump behind enemy lines that did not go well and resulted in many deaths. He's drinking heavily and has been demoted from Regimental to Battalion intelligence officer. Soon after Hiltler's death, they are ordered to Bertchesgarden, the Nazi leader's mountain-top retreat.
Did You Know?
(at around 50 mins) Winters mentions that the Soviets liberated a camp much worse than the one encountered by Easy company, one ten times as big with execution chambers and ovens. He is referring to the infamous Auschwitz labor/extermination camp liberated by the Soviets on January 27, 1945. See more

Sgt. Denver 'Bull' Randleman
Is the war over, sir?
No. We have orders to Berghtesgaden. We're gonna move out in one hour.
Why? The man's not home. Should've killed himself three years ago, saved us a lot of trouble.
Yeah, he should've. But he didn't.
