Storyline

The British brothers both survived the failed raid o the ship, but now chase it in their nuclear submarine. Captured cahoot Juan Carlos is treated harshly, beyond doc Scott(s endurance, but despite near-torture by Slattery, actually plays a dirty game, pretending to have switched side. Slowly Chandler realizes they're facing a competitor for control of the cure, who already controls a European territory (actually thanks to traitor scientist Niels) and now wants world exclusivity. It comes to cat and mouse games, a torpedo duel and ultimately a shocking launch. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When we first see the bridge of the submarine, the clock in the background reads 22.47; it then becomes 22.29 after introducing Mo; 23.01 when he talks about being a lucky git; 22.48 on talking about finding immune people; 23.22 when Mo gets up and points his gun; then 23.09 (onto 23.10) when the captain says he's our guest.

Ship vs Submarine
26 December 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

In case of doubt, you cannot go wrong with a little bit of ship vs submarine tension. "Achilles", the fifth episode of this vastly improved second season of "The Last Ship" goes for the tension on and under water, and offers another very entertaining episode.

After the confrontation on the medical ship, now Chandler and friends have discovered a new problem in their lives: the all-around- European-with-a-British-accent submarine. Cue an episode where both teams try to discover where the other is. Will the submarine destroy the ship? Can Slattery bring the truth out of their prisoner? What is actually the purpose of the people in the submarine?

There are a lot of things happening in the episode, even if not much seems to be going on. It is a slow burner of an episode, raising the tension slowly and keeping the viewers on their toes. Everyone involved does a great job, even if it is a change of pace if we compare with previous episodes. Which may be a positive, as it makes the show a little bit more varied. The new 'bad people' seem to be molded on the we-are-the-chosen-ones model, and even if they do not seem threatening enough right now, and a little bit impersonal, they help the plot keep chugging along.

"Achilles" offers tension, action and interesting plot developments. How will the people on the ship overcome this new enemy? "The Last Ship" seems to be on the right course...
