How well do you remember Col. Henry Blake's final episode of M*A*S*H, ''Abyssinia, Henry''?

McLean Stevenson's character of Henry Blake was undoubtedly a beloved one. That's why his final episode on the show was so emotional.

The season three finale of M*A*S*H is one of the most memorable, dramatic, gut-wrenching and emotional episodes of the entire series. 

It's the final time fans saw Col. Henry Blake, played by McLean Stevenson, on the show. 

The natural progression of the episode initially left fans happy for the fictional character as he's set to be discharged from the M*A*S*H 4077th, but by episode's end, the earth-shattering twist caught viewers off guard. 

Blake's departure and how it was executed was so dramatic, most of the cast didn't learn of his fate until the scene was shot. 

"Abyssinia, Henry" is an episode that any true M*A*S*H fan will never forget.

You got 10 out of 10 - How well did you remember Col. Blake's final episode? Is your score worthy of a salute? A very underutilized character. Some of my favorite episodes from seasons 1-3 were ones in which his was a prominent character: "The Trial of Henry Blake" (which he also wrote), "The Army Navy Game" (a story he inspired), "Deal Me Out", "Henry in Love", "The Chosen People", and "Private Charles Lamb".

10 out of 10
But no matter how many times I see this episode I still cry at the end when Radar comes into the operating room and tells everyone that Blakes plane was shot down and spun into the Sea of Japan and there were no survivors.

9/10. My Dad being career army, this episode hit home. Because I knew classmates who lost their own "Henry Blake". To me this was a realistic episode because war have its cost. I was fortunate to make it home from the Gulf War.

9/10. Who in the heck knows what hymn Mulcahy is ever singing. This episode punched every MASH fan right in the mouth. It woulda been so nice to see Henry & Lorraine showing up Saturday nite at the country club unannounced, back home from the war.

Kinda have to piece that together with logic. God guides the surgeons hand so “guide the flock “ makes sense.

You got 10 out of 10 - How well did you remember Col. Blake's final episode? Is your score worthy of a salute? Sadly one of the better Col. Blake centered episodes, or episodes where he was more than a spectator to Trapper and (especially) Hawkeye. Others are: The Army-Navy Game (S1E20); The Trial of Henry Blake (S2E8) - for which Stevenson had a hand in writing both episodes. Also, Deal Me Out (S2E13); Henry in Love (S2E16); and Private Charles Lamb (S3E14). Great episodes all.
