This was a strange episode. It seemed even more disjointed than the last one. At least the last one was disjointed on purpose, but this one seemed to be trying to tell too many stories without enough time. What was with the scene where Cortez told the Captain she was still with him, and then he reprimanded her for seeking him out alone? I got a vibe that there may be some kind of history between them, but couldn't tell for sure. Either way, that scene just came out of nowhere and made no sense. Overall, it just seemed like they didn't have an A story for this episode, so they just threw together a whole bunch of B and C plots and tried to make them work. So Chaplin wasn't pissed enough to do something to Serrat when Serrat killed one of his crew, but now he kills one of Serrat's men when he straps a bomb on her? Seems like a double standard. At least we learned in this episode how the writers intend to stretch this plot out to a full season and maybe beyond. The sub crew represents the resistance to the administration of the current president, and as long as the sub is rogue, the president continues to get weaker and will eventually have to resign. So some faction is trying to keep the sub out there. Frankly, I think the political stuff in DC would make a more interesting story. I wish they'd show us more of what Autumn Reeser's character is up to (but I could do without so much of XO's wife).
