The Last Ship: Long Day's Journey

First things first...


M.V.P.
 

Who knew?

@psychosRus


Meet British brothers Sean and Ned. Delightful fellows, obviously the apples of their mother's eye. They're sailors by day, traipsing about the world looking for adventure without a care in the world. In their free time they like to crochet, read to the blind and deliver meals on wheels.

"It's a shit plan."
Shit plan. Ya think? You two morons are going to take over the world and excuse me but um...you're relying on NIELS FUCKING SORENSON TO DO IT???? What kind of badass supervillains are you?  YOU CAN'T EVEN AGREE ON WHAT COLOR THE SKY IS FOR CRISSAKES!!! Not to mention you stink from being cooped up on that sub for so long.

On a lighter note, Nick Court is just great as Ned. He really is. I actually like Ned. I know, he tried to kill my boys but okay...I like him mostly because he hates Sorenson. And I hate Sorenson.

Yeah, that's about right.


"We don't need him hangin' around now, creepin' people out. He's like the grim reaper."

"That's all part of the plan. Niels special talents is the thing we've been looking for. That reaper's gonna help us find more immunes."

Finally! Niels Sorenson is good for something!

By the way that scene where Ned called out to Niels with, "Thank you very much!" had me laughing so hard. See, Ned's a son of a bitch but he's got a sense of humor. You really gotta love the guy.


Snap out of it!



"Have you forgot what we're doing here? Find a cure. Save the world. Remember?"
What the everloving hell is going on with Chandler? What the hell kind of nonsense is this...basing his decisions on emotion instead of reason? That's so unlike him. Sure, things have changed in a post-apocalyptic world. You can't go through what these guys have been through and not come out different. Through all his stress, Chandler has managed to control himself...until now. He's one pissed off dude. All he wants right now is to just finish the mission, go home and hang out with dad and the kids and maybe mow the lawn, do a little gardening, wash the truck. But no...he can't because at every turn some whackjob is running loose fucking everything up.

Oh yeah, he's pissed.


Did you see the looks exchanged between Rachel and Slattery? You got the idea here that even Slattery is unnerved by Chandler's behavior. It was one thing to be hell bent on revenge but now the Captain of the Nathan James and two of his crew have gone radio silent and boarded buses in civilian clothes, without weapons and going who knows where. Slattery gets the anger but he's used to Chandler being the rational one in control.  What do you do when the one guy who must rule by logic and reason and keep his emotions in check, starts acting like everyone else?

"Don't let this sub become your white whale."
If God had a conscience, it'd be Jeter. When Chandler doesn't listen to CMC you know there's a problem.Perhaps Chandler needs this to help deal with his anger?


If you're asking, "Dammit Jess is Betty going to make it into every damn Season 2 recap?" then the answer would be a resounding, "WTF do I know? I make this shit up as I go along!"



Embraceable you


 Can we just call this what it is? A beautiful moment between two brothers. Until...
Way to go Ned, probably not the best time to call your psycho bro out on his leadership skills.


A Man For All Seasons


Tex got his hands on some clothes. Did anyone notice how well the clothes fit everyone? Tex should be commended.

One Tex fits all. Is there anything he can't do?



Simple math

+

=
"Hello?"
"Is there anybody there?"

Forty minutes into the episode, the Nathan James blew up some shit. Much too long a wait. We need to work on that. 
Make a note!



That's what I like about the South


Throwing in a few rednecks makes the Florida swamp thing so much more authentic.
"Howdy!"
"What I'm from Connecticut?"


"I lost my wife."
"And you found us. In my case they found me, I was wandering..."
Okay then....the world is nearly wiped out by a deadly virus, you're still alive and looking for reasons why. Then a nice guy in a button up comes along and whisks you off your feet with fancy stories of destiny and you being one of the chosen few, etc etc. 

Did anyone else's skin crawl?


Coincidence?





 

That "I really really need this guy to get his" moment

 

"At the safe zone in the mall, I found three hundred and twenty immune to my disease.
That's bloody good yeah?"
Anyone else think Ned just wants to punch Niel in the face and tell him to fuck off and die?


Mankind's newer hipper saviour


Someone needs to tell our Delightful Cult Leader that tan and
buttoned to the neck is out this season.

 



Whoa! HUD just got some street cred

 

 

"When we get to New Orleans, we will install him in his rightful office where he can create a cabinet, take control of the military and show the world that America is back!"
WTF is this "America is back!" thing? We never really went away. And why is a Brit promoting America? Everyone knows we're lazy selfish sonsabitches who eat too much food, drink too much beer and watch way too much reality TV. It seems that Sean's plan may be to handpick world leaders and instill puppet governments. If I was giving advice to Sean I'd say he probably should layoff the game of world domination and start trying to get that rowdy sub crew of his under control first (I get the feeling they'll be part of his demise if he doesn't!).

Now...let's talk about the POTUS.

HUD Secretary? 12th in line? I would've loved to have been in the writers room when they mulled that one over. "Secretary of Agriculture? Nah...too Cool. Secretary of Health and Human Services? Not cool enough. Hey how about Secretary of Energy? Nah nobody knows who that guy is..."


Wouldn't it really suck if just a few weeks after #12 took the oath, #11 showed up and said "Oh wait, here I am! Sorry, I was in the bathroom when they called!" LOL

In all seriousness though, it's the devil you don't know that you have to look out for. And if anyone thinks this guy is going to be someone's puppet I have a feeling that this is going to be one of those "things are not always what they seem" situations.  We're either going to love this guy or hate his guts. I for one and looking forward to Mark Moses in this role because he does a really great good guy and a really great scheming son of a bitch.

All in all, it was a good episode. A bit slow moving (for good reason) with a little suspense and humor. No worries about the lack of action, the necessary background has been established and it's sure to pick up next week as it always does!
