No I'm pretty sure he is a carrier, the flashback strongly hinted that whatever the experiment is that he did made the virus mutate with the "humane gene" that Laura Croft was talking about. It also explains the "1 thing that you dont have" the Russian commodore was talking about in the earlier episode. They have the source of the mutated strand with the "human gene" in it.

I thought the "one thing" was just an immune person, which is tremendously useful.

At one point in time, most of our helicopters had an even number of rotor blades (ie 2 or 4) and the Russian helicopters had an odd number (ie 3 or 5). Don't know if that is still the case. I'd say they were using a stolen helicopter anyway. Or production just used the same one. Either way, you'd think the Navy personnel would be able to identify the sound of their own helicopter.

Just in case:
Spoiler:
Where you see an FBI agent ringing the buzzer at a house, and we see Clarice trapped in the basement. But as it turns out, they are two different houses. American helicopter crew rescued two other people.
I see that a LOT on the shows I watch. My wife and I usually point it out before it's revealed.

No way a carrier can fit on a destroyer.

Don't think he's actually Russian, just knows the language...

Agreed. I think he's British.

I thought he was a Russian married to a British woman. The fact that he is crazy about chess means he must be Russian, according to TV cliches, right?

Well the woman didn't yearn for a bag of "crisps" or "biscuits" at any point which are usually TV cliches to identify British people.

How cool would it be if the girl is a carrier and they all get the virus and then die in the last episode.

I don't think the guy on the American ship is Russian. He speaks with a British accent every time we hear him talking.

I thought that in one of the previous episodes he said he just had colleagues in Russia that he was working with.

I know it was mentioned already, but I have to mention it again.

It cracks me up how they always forget they have a helicopter. Bad writers.

They have a helicopter despite the lab occupying the helicopter bay, two mini subs, and at least two rigid inflatable boats. Oh, and at least one drone.

There are two helicopter bays, one of which was made into the lab.

There are enough stupid things in this show that you don't have to make new ones up.

Yes there are two helicopter bays. I'm not sure how many helicopters each bay can hold but I would guess at least two each.

OK so only one per bay, so they should only have 1 helicopter.

I'm only up to this episode.. but this was what I came here to comment on.

I admittedly can't give a rational explanation, but Kirk going on away missions seemed *less* ridiculous than the captain out there in the middle of the ocean floating.

(Speaking of that, where did they actually film this, and were they actually floating? It almost seemed like they would really have just been standing there... and the angles seemed like they definitely were in a small-ish pool.)

I have looked him up on imdb, and the guy playing Tex is really really familiar, but I can't figure out which one of his past roles I know him from. (Most people that seem familiar, I can either figure out I'm confusing them for someone else, or even sometimes they were a guest star on some show LOOOOONG ago, which is pinging my long term memories.)

The only thing I remember seeing the guy playing Tex in is Brothers & Sisters. Although looking at his IMDB list, I'm sure I've seen him in a number of those single episode guest star things like CSI, etc.

I know him from Burn Notice. He was the main bad guy in one of the later seasons.

Yeah, that's probably it.. Though I honestly don't remember who the character he played, Joe Whedon, was.. If I went back and saw an ep I'd probably remember instantly.. (I saw all but the last season.. I think that was on my OLED S3 when it died..)

He was the oldest sister's husband... Sarah.

Spoiler:
He wasn't around as much after they got divorced.
