Synopsis for Blackhawk: "Suspicion"

The Blackhawks see that the war is moving southward, ever farther away from their North Atlantic secret base, so they survey some Mediterranean islands, scouting for a new base site. They encounter some Nazis and one of them impersonates Hendrickson, to get aboard their base at Blackhawk Island. The impostor is found out, but escapes, and leads the team back to his own base, where he is killed by his own commander, for leading the enemy to their secret base.
