Yep... Season Finale...

Okay, hands up everybody who saw that ending coming.

(both hands go up...)
But isn't Titus Welliver always the good guy?



Guess who's free to date the Doctor now?
1) Yes, saw the ending from a mile away (so to speak.)

2) What do you want to bet that the Captain's wife ISN'T DEAD?! (She was probably the first one 'treated' of the group that made it to 'Olympia' -- and I'm sure that Granderson's people at Olympia immediately reported who she was, and Granderson ordered her given a dose of the actual cure -- from the small supply given to them -- and she'll surprisingly show up alive and well as a plot point for Season 2.) Of course Granderson's people told her father and the kids "she didn't make it".

^^I thought Chandler's wife died before they made it to Olympia? And if one of Granderson's people figured out who she was wouldn't they also make a deduction at least about the kids as well? Regardless, since Chandler's wife was the first one in the family infected, it stands to reason she'd be the first to die, though really the rest of them should have been near death as well. So I take it this treatment also has instant healing and restorative abilities too?

We saw her coughing in the car, while they were driving through baltimore...

The Wire was set in Baltimore?

Same universe, or is there a "The Wire" Tour Bus that's been turned into an attack tank since the fall of society?

Of course it exists

Also real things that exist...

I think it was a bit ambiguous as to when she actually died.. But I think she's probably definitely dead..

Early on in the episode, it was stated that the actual cure would work as a vaccination as well as a cure, but only if the patients were not too far gone... So it stands to reason (other than for plot convenience) that she would have been too far along for it to work anyway...

Honestly, I don't disagree with any of your logical conclusions; that said, this is a TNT 'high drama' TV show we're talking about in the end; thus since we didn't see her die onscreen and she was a pretty central figure to the lead character of the Captain; I WOULDN'T put it past the writing staff to pull something like that for the 'drama'

I hate those promos for their shows where the cast members (and for The Last Ship it's the Captain) are screaming. It makes the shows seem like schlocky horror.

Is there sound? I FF through them. If there's no sound you could just imagine that he's just breathing really enthusiastically.

Yeah, you hear him scream through a filter. It's a lame gimmick.

Titus said they had someone on the inside. Anyone care to wager who that might be?

Up until they took over the ship, I thought it might be the Sheriff.

The guy they were going to assassinate at the beginning of the episode when they couldn't get a line of sight on the chick?

That was the sheriff who shot the crewmember and somehow took over the bridge single-handedly. Definitely not him.
