On Sunday night the continuation of “The Last Ship” ran and they reached Gitmo, -a base located in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba-, there they hoped to refuel, replenish their food and medical supplies. But of course it would not be as easy as that, and they encountered hostiles in the form of terrorists who had been imprisoned there, as well as a subcontractor who had provided security. This directed them to the warehouse in which the supplies were kept, and he advised that there were several waiting to attack, but they were disposed off swiftly.
The crew held a vigil on the ship and several spoke of their closest ones back home, and showed photos. Yes, this is a fictional story; however, it hits so many aspects of life and makes viewers wonder about the helplessness that would be felt in such a situation, unable to help loved ones in a time of hardship and worse fearing them dead in agony from an incurable disease. More characters are coming to light. The doctor is held in priority because of her expertise and because she might be the only hope they all have left to survive.
They see a contact in the distance and believe is a friendly ship, however, soon they notice it is a Russian vessel and upon calling general quarters, -order on board a warship that means all hands will man battle stations-, the ship was contacted again this time in less than a friendly tone. And it turns out that the Russian ship wants something from the Americans: the doctor. Now according to previews of next week’s episode both ships prepare to fight each other, and it is revealed that the doctor’s assistant is a traitor as it has been hinted since the beginning of the show.
“The Last Ship” runs on Sunday night at 10 p.m. EDT on TNT.
