Now the labs on land are wipe out by the submarine's missiles, Chandler sees its elimination as top priority, but it's off sonar, as Mason works out hiding its location by radio buoy, which is blown up. Checking up on Scott's mentor Dr. Hunter's last message while he and his lab were eliminated, she finds leads on his method to make a powder variation of the cure, which can be spread massively like crop dusting. Infrared location shows the whereabout of the British brothers. Chandler leaves Slattery in command while he, Green, Tex and Taylor approach them incognito on land, in what turns out a Florida cult base of immune followers, which even claims legal US power.

Did You Know?


In one scene CMC Jeter warns Chandler to not let the submarine crew become his "white whale". He is comparing Chandler's desire for vengeance to that of Captain Ahab in the novel "Moby-Dick". See more »


Green tells Chandler that "the nearest big city is St Augustine". At a population of just over 14,000, St Augustine hardly qualifies as a "big city". It's claim to fame is America's oldest city, not it's size. "Big" cities in that geographical area would be Jacksonville, FL to the north (Pop 903,000) and Daytona, FL to the south (Pop 68,000).

Back on land
27 December 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

Chandler is obsessed with the submarine. Dr. Scott says they need to go to Dr. Hunter's place to get some information that may help into making the vaccine airborne. What will they decide to do? Will Chandler accept that hunting the submarine is not the best path for helping humanity?

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.
