It was definitely not Hassad who beheaded the soldiers.
I'm sorry, but I thought Curtis's death was very poorly written. I don't mind LA traffic miracles or kung fu movie style fighting heroics or MacGyver stuff (in fact I love all of that) - but IMO Curtis would never have freaked out to that level over some dead comrades, no matter what the circumstances. If he was that emotional, shouldn't he have been a little more pissed about Jack being handed over for torture and death to the same group?
And even if you buy that it could happen, Curtis would have just offed Hassad in one swift move, not grabbed him and waited for Jack to shoot him.
I disliked the opening gambit for the same reason - it was just a setup so Kiefer could 'emote' and we would get the point that his character has some sadness issues. Maybe next season he could start seeing a psychiatrist.
OTOH, I loved the neck biting.
