After the previous episode, "Long Day's Journey" brings the team on land, searching for the 'chosen ones' and trying to discover a little bit more of their plans. It does for a slow paced episode, where we get some of those I-have-seen-the-light speeches and where we get to know a little bit more of the cult people and their leaders. It is interesting enough, but nothing original. It is disappointingly predictable. Yes, there are some who believe they were chosen by a higher entity, and they want to become the rulers on Earth. This is a topic that is always interesting, the chance a show has to dwell on the possibility of an after life, or a higher entity, or something else, mixing what we see, hear, experience with our beliefs and hopes, but the writers of "The Last Ship" decide to keep things simple. Too simple. There are some people who have decided to believe they are immune because... Well, they were chosen.
The calm before the storm.
