Goofs

About 3/4 of the way thorough this episode Lawson has two of the diesel engines running. The subsequent dialogue makes it clear that they are still submerged and the submarine does not have a snorkel (comment about the need to vent). Operating these engines while submerged would use up all the air in the boat in seconds. Until nuclear power, the vast majority of submarines (including the one shown) operated on electric motors and batteries while submerged. See more »

Quotes

Lawson: Aren't ya gonna ask me how I got in here?
Angel: No. You'd be amazed at how many people break into this building on a regular basis.

Turn the poor sod to save the ship. Then make him dash for dry land before Mr. Sunshine scorches him a new one. You're still a dick
14 April 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Turn the poor sod to save the ship. Then make him dash for dry land before Mr. Sunshine scorches him a new one. You're still a dick - Many people dislike this episode because it's the follow up of 'Cordy's death and it doesn't deal with her death nor even mention her in the first place, I agree that it's a little frustrating because 'Cordelia' was such an important character and now she's dead and suddenly forgotten by everyone. But even so, I think this episode makes for excellent watching and works very well as a stand-alone. It's also a prequel to the whole initiative thing with the storyline of Nazi's experimenting on vampires and putting ships in their brains to build up an army. I loved the flashbacks in the submarine, I love it when a show does something completely different and this episode did that, I am also very fond of the 'Lawson' character and can't help but to feel bad for him. 'Lawson' was just looking for a reason on why to fight and that's what this whole episode is about. Some people might find it a total bore, but I love it, it's not a masterpiece by all means, but it just holds my interest from start till end. LAWSON: Funny what goes through a man's mind when his life's hanging in the balance. Boys talked about that a lot back on the boat. Always figured it'd be the special moments you freeze in time. Your mom singing you to sleep at night. Sneaking into the movies with your best friend. The way your girl's hair shimmers in the sun. But the truth is... the only thing that really goes through your head is... "wow... this really sucks." And then you're gone. (9.0 out of 10)
