Actually, I didn't have an issue with that part. The return capsules aren't aerodynamically stable any way but heat shield down, and a similar scenario took place with soyuz 5. The service module didn't separate, and it entered the atmosphere pointed in the wrong direction. Eventually the service module broke off, and the capsule tumbled a bit then righted itself.

Hey I'm an F'n Jerk!
