Locked Up Abroad

NGC | 9:00 pm

While on a reconnaissance trip in February 2011 to the front lines of the Libyan Arab Spring uprising, Matthew VanDyke and his unit are ambushed by Muammar Gaddafi’s men in the season finale, "Gaddafi’s American Prisoner." After he is captured, VanDyke is transported to Tripoli’s infamous Maktab Al Nasser Prison, where he spends six months in solitary confinement, plagued by malnutrition and hallucinations so severe that when a chance to escape reveals itself, he’s not sure whether it’s even real.
