Previously on “The Last Ship” (Episode 1 “Phase Six”), the crew aboard USS Nathan James commandeered by Tom Chandler (Dane) learned that 80% of the world’s population has been affected by a deadly virus, leaving many countries in chaos. Aboard the ship, Dr. Rachel Scott (Mitra) was working on a cure for the virus with a strain she discovered in the Arctic.  Meanwhile, a Russian military operative was looking for this strain and was determined to snatch this at all cost from whoever holds it.

The second episode will find Chandler and his crew in the vicinity of a U.S. Naval base in Gauntanamo Bay, with the hopes of gathering replenishments like food, medical supplies and fuel.  The commander orders three teams to do this task, but while on the base, they are attacked by prisoners who have managed to escape during the epidemic. The teams seek the help of a private contractor who has been managing to survive in the island despite the virus still actively infecting people.

Zap2it reported that the season premiere of the “The Last Ship,” which aired on June 22, 2014, earned 5.3 million viewers. It was considered as the biggest premiere of a cable TV show for the year so far, and the biggest premiere for any of TNT’s shows.

“We couldn’t be happier with last night’s launch of The Last Ship and Falling Skies, which come to TNT from two of the industry’s most successful storytellers: Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg,” said Michael Wright, TNT’s president and head of programming, in the Zap2it report.
