Default ***spoilers*** Dawson conflict

I don't quite get it. When he got out of the jeep and asked that guy about Frankies jacket, why did he get so pissed at Baker and say
"For a minute I actually believed your ****."
What did he mean when he said that?
What did he suspect Baker of?

I don't remember that part well since I only played the game once, but I'm guessing he reacted that way since Baker told them that he didn't have a tragic, painfull death (Not only he died slowly and after being lied to, but also a burning pile of debris fell on his corpse after...poor guy)

I think it's foreshadowing for when the squad finds out the truth about Legget. Dawson knows the truth and now he's seen Frankie's jacket he knows Baker was lying again. Baker lies to protect people's feelings too much.

He lied about how Frankie died. He tells the squad something like "He did good and took a couple of them (Germans) with him". He makes it sound like he died in a blaze of glory instead of bleeding out in a corner somewhere.

Strangely though he does seem to go all that way without killing any Germans. You don't here any gun shots or see any bodies.

I remember one of the Gearbox guys (Forget which one) said that perhaps Baker is simply imagining all those Germans he sees in the hospital (Like he imagined them when the bomb came through the roof)

Same goes for all solo missions. It makes a lot more sense than fighting 20 Germans indoors.

Well, he lied and didn't lie. Franky didn't go down in a hail of bullets, but one of the guys asked Baker if Franky died a quick death and baker said "not especially.
