Yeah, they should have blown that ship out of the water. This is why the Japanese Samurai killed off the entire families of their enemies after they defeated them. No chance of revenge.

That Russian ship will be back. You can count on it. Plus, patient zero is still alive - mutations of the virus, perhaps? The series would be over if it weren't for loose ends. New baddies will crop up. As long as there's suspense and good action, I'll keep watching it. Gawd, I miss Walking Dead. Have to settle for tid bits like this on the tube till then.

Nuclear warheads are kept inert until activated. They don't explode if a bomb goes off next to it.



I'm on the fence about this show. I talked in one of my earlier posts about how they could have gone in such a different direction in terms of political and sociological statements (ie: my example about an Al Quaida agent taking up the Captain's offer on amnesty for the better of the world), but it's turned out to simply be a typical Jerry Bruckheimer flick... and it's definitely far from his best work. There's so much they can do in terms of the infected and how people from different nations have to work together (c'mon, did they really have to use the old Cold War stereotype of USA vs Russia?). Hell, even seeing old allies (say the USA and UK) turn against each other would be more interesting than the Russian angle.

That said, I don't think this show is intended for anything more than mindless entertainment - especially since it's a Summer show - so my expectations were low. They still are, yet I'm still inclined to tune in every week to watch it.

Not sure what that says about myself...

Yet we have cold war tensions coming back between Russia and the US over Ukraine in real life. Some things never really do change even though they appear to get better for awhile.

The Russian Commander reminds me of Putin. A power-mad iron-fisted ruler who's kept at bay by the rest of the world. What would Putin do if he knew there was no way the US or anyone else could stop him (due to some other world crisis)? Would he sit still and play nice? Or run over Europe?

Chick left the vaccine behind after grabbing the gun under the false floor. Maybe he vaccinated himself. Maybe he was never infected or had a vaccine developed and never told anyone from day one. He too had a wife. Bastard guy.

On a side note, this series is almost as bad as that Halle Berry show, Extant. Only difference is, I can watch Last Ship episodes and not fall asleep. If it weren't for Halle Berry............ nuff said. Dat dress during party - wow.

Damn. Considering the general theme of, "America, fuck ya!" I was very happy to see the twist they put into the end of this episode.

i think that resemblance was intended. Ever notice hollywood villains were always eastern european in the 1980-90's then became middle eastern the past decade? helps sway the public's opinion of war against those countries

that's my theory anyway.

good show, finished all 10 episodes past few days

All these summer series are coming to an end. Under the Dome is still running - I believe last episode is September 22nd.

Skitters are back soon And Walking Dead
