Barnes (Berenger) and Elias (Dafoe) confront each other deep in the jungle and Barnes shoots Elias, to avoid being court-marshalled for the incident at the Vietnamese village. As the platoon leaves the area, Taylor (Sheen) spots Elias running from the VC. They fail to rescue Elias, and after being shot several times, Elias falls to the ground and dies. Taylor suspects Barnes and becomes determined to kill him. Most of the soldiers breakdown in fear of their next battle. King (David) leaves. During the final battle, many of the cast are wiped out. Bunny (Dillon) is shot, and Junior (Johnson) gets stabbed to death. O'Neill (McGinley) hides behind a dead soldier. The Americans are losing the battle so the Captain orders an air strike. Barnes turns on Taylor and is about to kill him when the blast from the napalm strike blows Barnes away. Several hours later, Taylor wakes up to find Barnes alive and in need of medical attention. Taylor shoots and kills him. Taylor goes to the camp and gets flown out of Vietnam.
