After much drama and a lengthy journey at sea, Sunday night’s new episode of “The Last Ship” brought Chandler and his entire crew to a place that they have not seen in quite a long time: Home. In the process, what they unfortunately realized is that this is not the same home that they remember. The country has been divided up, the military destabilized, and everyone has new orders that proclaim our heroes to be traitors.
Oh, and Allison is still manipulating anyone. Should anyone be that surprised?
Once Chandler was ashore, what we saw eventually boiled down to a heck of an action-packed journey in order to ensure the safety of many and the values that he has long stood for. In the process, though, that made him more of an adversary to new leadership than ever before. The train sequence was all sorts of outstanding, mostly because Chandler in the end had Castillo arrested, and brought him back to the Nathan James to assess the future. In a way, he was a leader — but not the leader, since one of his largest goals was doing what he could in order to ensure that the proper President got into power once more.
Just in case Chandler reclaiming some essence of America was not awesome enough, you also had him reading Manuel the business. He has won a battle, but given that Allison is still the one pulling many of the strings, he’s not done with the war yet. In the end, consider this more or less an awesome entry in what is probably going to be a thrilling journey the rest of the way. Episode Grade: B+.
