Storyline

Pirate captain Takehaya must restrain lieutenant Toshiro's sadistic but 'blood-wasteful' pleasure in punishing the escapee duo by bare-back suspended caning and more for 'back-talker' Miller. Chandler's blackmail at Ping's HQ procured them access to fuel and Slattery cleverly smuggled approximate coordinates into the pirates' broadcast, pointing to the Chinese-claimed Paracel Islands, but it's a vast area and the piratical ultimatum may run out. They find themselves surrounded by a novel type of minefield, consisting chained trios of different mine types, including a home made one with a motor and sensors, which closes in on the James. Wolf and Greene devise a complex decoy sweep plan, but the pirates also prepared a single torpedo to launch at the ship. Meanwhile the press leaks enough to arouse the regional leaders' mistrust against president Michener, demanding domestic concessions. Written by KGF Vissers

The art of mining
6 January 2017 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

The ship is in a minefield. How will they get out? This Takehaya is a smart fellow, it seems. On the other side of the ocean, Michener is having some problems of his own, the regional leaders putting pressure on him and the decisions his administration is taking.

After a couple of down episodes, "Minefield" brings things back to basics. The ship, in a minefield, trying to survive without blowing out to pieces, with Wolf, Green, Cruz or Jesse having their own time to shine, does give the episode much needed fresh air, raising the tension with also a couple of nice twists.

In the USA, the political games offer some interesting power plays and also a little bit on the role of the press on telling narratives and directing the public opinion. Again, no awards for originality, but it plays really well with the moments when we disconnect from the minefield.

And more to come.
