I’m dangerously close to condemning this season as being Terrible. Peter Weller’s plotline sucks. His motivations are stupid, the fact that everyone knows he’s doing hallucinogens and yet they cater to his every whim is stupid, and the whole idea of the aggression drug is stupid.
On top of all that stupid, there has been literally ZERO character drama or growth in any of the cast this season. It’s almost comical how easily they take down any challenge they face. The one new character that was interesting to watch is the one they decide to give conflicting motivations to and then kill off.
Someone on the writing team for this show needs to be let go if it gets renewed for another season, which at this point I’m thinking is highly unlikely. The Last Ship went from very well-produced guilty pleasure to ridiculous garbage in record time.
