Did You Know?


A variety of aircraft are seen taking the cure to other parts of the country. One is a Grumman C-2A Greyhound. The markings on the tail show it to be with Fleet Logistics Squadron 30 (VRC-30) the "Providers" which is based at Naval Air Station North Island San Diego, CA. The F/A-18 Super Hornet seen taking off had the letters 'NE' and a dragon on the vertical stabilizer which means it's from Strike Fighter Squadron 192 (VFA-192) "Golden Dragons" which is part of Carrier Air Wing 2 (CVW-2) and is based at Naval Air Station Lemoore. Another is a Lockheed C-130 Hercules with Niagara and the number 79281 on the vertical stabilizer.

Lt. Alisha Granderson: Everyone's looking for their families. I guess I'm lucky; I already found mine. Now she's gone, and all that's left is what she became.
CMC Jeter: This situation brings out the worst in people, but it also brings out the best.
Lt. Alisha Granderson: Part of me wanted to just stay in Baltimore, try to help repair that place. But how could I, after what she did there?
CMC Jeter: Your place is here, with your shipmates.
Lt. Alisha Granderson: Kara? My own bunkmate won't even look at me. After what my mother did to her...
CMC Jeter: Well, maybe she just doesn't know how to ...

Giving the fan a relaxed episode for once, "It's Not a Rumor" has the crew helping to distribute the vaccine and making contact with people all around the USA and Europe to help things start working again. At the same time, long forgotten and last seen on the Russian ship Niels... well, he's back (and it seems being alone has made him crazier than ever). And there seems to be a new threat in the horizon...

The episode gives a lot of time to the crew, to let the viewer connect with them and see their inner struggles as they reconnect (or try to) with their lives and their loved ones that have survived the pandemic. It is all already threaded territory, seen a million times, with not a shred of originality, but it does a good job in making us see the characters as people (even if the character's development is cartoonish as they come; excerpt number 1: Chandler goes back home and the first thing he does is put the flag back up; just in case we didn't know he felt a patriot). The show is also falling a little bit in Chandler-as-god (whatever references to Noah and his ark, it is clear he is more of a Jesus) which diminishes somewhat everyone else in the series. And we got some more of those the army-is-our-family speeches. Subtlety is not a word the writers of the show know.

However, it is all interesting, the new threat seems a different one from our globetrotting adventures with your bad guys from abroad that was so popular in season 1 (yes, Niels apart) and the actors make all engaging enough.
