Now the human tests show the vaccine and cure works, all crew in injected and the ship seeks a port to organize its mass-production. Their initial choice, a fort, proves deliberately bombed. A radio signal however invites them to the tiny remnant of the US government's HQ in what's left of Baltimore. Acting 'president' Amy Granderson's weakling government offers them suitable facilities, but the ship attracted the lethal attention of a ruthless confederation of warlord-like militias who want to maintain their power and hence the pest-caused chaos. Granderson's state troopers guard proves a poor match. Written by KGF Vissers

Is this really home?
30 November 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

Surprise, surprise, "The Last Ship" offers a surprisingly strong finale, which ticks all the boxes and will keep the viewer waiting for more.

Chandler's family is sick, Alisha Granderson's mother is in Baltimore and they seem to have some kind of government, Titus Welliver's Thorwald looks mean and menacing... But we have got the cure, right? All is going to end well, it has to. No? No?

The plot teases us with a new bad guy, Thorwald, and the new danger; the warlords that have been popping around like mushrooms and want to be in control of things. And then hits the viewer with a lot of interesting and inspired plot developments. The fast pace won't let the viewer breathe, and, curiously, all the characters get interesting arcs and stories (all the relevant ones, at least). The direction is good, and the action more than just people shooting in the dark (all those bad shooters in previous episodes...).

"No Place Like Home" is lots of fun, and delivers on the promise of the show. And it ends with a lot of interesting questions that will need to be answered in future seasons. A great finale.
