The Last Ship Season 2 Episode 13 Review: A More Perfect Union

The plot of "A More Perfect Union" centered around the actions of a character we haven"t seen in quite a while -- Kevin Mc
Dowell. Remember him? One of the Ramsey"s underlings, & the man who recruited Michener khổng lồ the Immunes, Mc
Dowell shares his late boss" twisted genius for genocide,and for taunting his adversary.

Using the surplus navy uniforms lớn trick people was a stroke of (evil) genius, và capturing the sick & forcing them to infect others is right up there with sending infected blankets on the scale of twisted ways lớn commit mass murder. But it also didn"t seem entirely well considered.

Hear me out. Yes, it would strike a truyền bá blow against Michener & the Nathan James for people khổng lồ think the Navy was spreading the flu. But with the ship less than an hour away, and able khổng lồ send out communications verifying that it wasn"t actually them, & with a viable cure... I mean, the crowd was large, but was the aerosol even necessary?

There were at least six crew members, plus Tex"s daughter, in that crowd, already infected with the contagious cure. Even if they didn"t cảm ứng every person, those they did would be spreading the cure. In fact, wouldn"t some of the crowd already have been inoculated by Tex? When symptoms failed to develop, or reversed, the Nathan James would have been vindicated.

Now we"re all immune, asshole.


I get where the writers were trying to go with that whole thing, but it was so obviously illogical that I found myself scoffing out loud. Suspension of belief is one thing, but if you want me lớn suspend my common sense as well, you have khổng lồ give me a little bit more. I mean, I"m still not sold on the cure only being contagious for a week. 

For a show that spends so much time on expository dialogue (thanks for telling us exactly how under stocked the ship is, Cruz), there are times, lượt thích with the cure, where the audience is not offered a plausible explanation. The communication phầm mềm was another such failure -- I was confused why they needed an phầm mềm to ID Mc
Dowell until Tex was able to hotline the ship, & then it made sense.

Outside of these (admittedly nitpicking) complaints, I enjoyed the finale. Sure a few things were predictable, but they made the story work. Of course Jeter"s bình luận was going lớn be overheard (they mentioned it was an xuất hiện line 2 or three times), and Rachel was always going to be pardoned by Michener.

The three stops allowed for the story to build lớn a satisfying conclusion in St. Louis, with the obligatory montage of the crew. It"s one of the pillars of the show after all. My personal hope for season three is that Miller ends up dating the girl that planted one on him in the park. 

Tex: I guess kissing would work, too. You didn"t mention that.Dr. Rachel Scott: Oh, for sure. Kissing could be a way to lớn go, if you"re up for it and can get written consent.

I really enjoyed that several crew members got some personal resolution. Jeter"s reunion with his in-laws was touching, but Tex stole the show as always. His daughter definitely takes after him, heading khổng lồ Memphis all on her own, and then jumping in to lớn help with the crowd. She"s got some moxie, và I really hope that she"s featured next season.

Side note: would anybody else watch a website series with the teenagers that Ray was leading, Kat, and Bertrise?

It was also nice to see the crew able khổng lồ unwind at the Inaugural Ball. The toasts to all of the shipmates who had fallen was touching. Danny"s proposal was adorably bumbling and Foster"s reaction was priceless. But the best part had khổng lồ be the sea shanty! 

People need to celebrate, even in the worst of times.

CDR Tom Chandler

There"s a lot khổng lồ look forward to for season three. Michener discussed some of the obvious law & order challenges his administration is going khổng lồ face with Chandler, but there will also be the challenge of how khổng lồ put a government back together. New characters will have to be brought in, because you can"t run a country with just a President and a Chief Naval Officer. 

I have a feeling that Rachel will pull through (perhaps after a short coma) for a few reasons. You can just go killing your female lead who is have flirtations with two of you male leads. Not khổng lồ mention that she"s apparently the only genius scientist who can make the cure. 

I"m really interested in how hand to hand combat, gunfights, and massive explosions are going khổng lồ be integrated into stories about building civilian coalitions, và clearing roads. Frankly, I assume that there will mostly be a focus on those warlords Michener mentioned and on knocking the Immune out of power nguồn in other parts of the world since those stories offer the highest likelihood for C-4 khổng lồ be used. 

President Michener: We have a nation lớn build & a world to lớn repair, & there"s no one I trust more.CDR Tom Chandler: Sounds lượt thích an order.President Michener: It is. Tonight, we rest và enjoy our success. Tomorrow, the fight for America and the rest of the world begins.
