Off the Map Review: "On the Mean Streets of San Miguel"

This week’s episode of Off the Map surprised me. It’s amazing how a character can change from sympathetic to evil in the span of one scene.

In "On the Mean Streets of San Miguel," Abuelito, played by Ralph Waite, is a beloved, elderly man being told he has terminal cancer and then with a couple of lines of dialogue and a frightening look in his eyes, he becomes a former Nazi soldier.

The sudden transformation was disconcerting.

Does anybody else find what the doctor did to the man as a torture... i be a nazi soldier, and just as he says...grenadier is not punished by international laws, a german soldier had no more responsability over the Holocaust as any other member of the nazi germany...or maybe i didn't quite get the idea behind this man...just asking.
