    It's also possible that the image of the Astute class is being used simply because it's not familiar to most U.S. viewers, and the sub is something totally different in the show. Again, total question mark.

    Not really. When you see the sub at the beginning with the two guys who weren't getting sick the whole crew were wearing Royal Navy uniforms.

    However, you're right to say that if the crew are not experienced submariners, then that does eliminate any advantages the Astute has.

    Nevertheless it's a fair bet they intend it to be the Astute class. When it comes to the class of ships being shown in the show they have so far been pretty accurate. Take the Russian Nuclear Battlecruiser from last season for example.

    the nathan james did seem to have trouble detecting it, and im sure i read that in exercises the us navy have struggled to detect astute class subs, I doubt there could have been many other immune people trained on the astute, but it looks like this group have other european military types so they could probably pull together a reasonable group of submariners and train them to a reasonable standard

    From what it looked like to me, the leader of the "immune" was either the XO or one of the other officers on that sub, and when the rest died off, he took over..

    most of what I learned about sub war fare I learned from movies, so take it with a grain of salt what I say, but from what I picked up, differences in water temp, salt content and depth, as well as hiding on the bottom, can hide you from sonar or at least confuse sonar.

    I just hope wolf man isn't on the subs side.

    Maybe they just didn't list the last three. They had 10 episodes last season; and given how popular the show is, it would be surprising for this to be an even shorter season.

    Finally caught last sunday's episode. Man did it suck to see the sub get off those missiles and hear (at the end) that many of those labs got blown up. Here's hoping at least SOME made it out of the facilities.

    Technically possible but unlikely. Only a particular class of British sub has Nuclear weapons of any kind, and Nuclear Tomahawks aren't in the arsenal. We only use Trident for that. But I leave it open in case they stole a few.

    Tonight's episode:

    Spoiler:
    It was a bit slower than some of the other episodes, but still very good.

    The Nathan James finds out that Rachel's mentor and all the other scientists in the lab he was working in had been killed, but the doctor managed to get a message out to Rachel to let her know that he had found a way to make more of the cure without having to use fancy machines to do so.

    Rachel had been lecturing the Captain about how important it was to get the cure out to the people and not go running off on a revenge mission, only to tell him when he finds the people that killed her mentor, to "kill them". She finally understood why he was so determined to do just that instead of distributing the new form of the cure.

    Loved seeing the ship's crew in action looking for the submarine. They didn't find that, but they did find a buoy of some sort that was allowing the sub to transmit messages to and from their people on shore ... and then they destroyed it. I felt like cheering. Loved how well the shipboard team worked together with that. But that's what Navy folks (and other military) are supposed to do. Right?

    There was a really intense scene between Sean and his brother over what they were going to and when. I'm quite convinced that Sean would have no way hesitation in killing his own brother after that confrontation. Meanwhile, Niels is standing there watching this confrontation after congratulating himself on visiting a small group of survivors and leaving them infected with the virus and soon will all likely be dead. His happiness with himself almost makes me think that inwardly he's doing a little happy dance congratulating himself on his cleverness. I think Niels, Sean and the brother are all bat s**t crazy, and that's putting it mildly. Will be happy when they are killed.

    Later in the episode, Captain Chandler and a bunch of his crew trade in their uniforms for civilian clothing to better blend in with the large group of survivors they've come across. At one point, Sean's brother walked onto the stage where Sean is giving a speech, and he looked out to the audience and for a moment I thought he had spotted Captain Chandler, and then dismissed it. Because if he had seen Chandler, he's totally crazy enough to just shoot him instead of anything else. Except he's so crazy, he'd probably have missed.

    Definitely looking forward to next week's episode. Apparently from stuff in articles about the show, there's going to be some sort of huge cliffhanger at the end of this season. Should be interesting to find out what that will be.

    I'm so glad I found this thread! Thanks to my friend Hedwig.

    This is my most current obsession. I LOVE this show. Slowly, but surely, I've been dragging my friends aboard. First, I use the obvious method--the promise of Chandler, Slattery, and Wolf eye candy, and then the show itself hooks them.

    I love how tight it is. I think that, with fewer episodes, it's even more necessary to make sure that the plot lines are tight and evenly-spaced.

    So, in a nutshell, I'm glad I've been introduced his forum thread, because now I have people to talk about it with.

    Last night's episode was a little slow for my liking, but i did enjoy it none the less.
    Spoiler:
    I hated it that the 'crazier brother' seemed to survive that cheek shot (it looked more of a gut shot though initially) and that they also got the infected but immune russian scientist.

    I thought it was awesome!

    Spoiler:


    I loved the kitchen fight. I wrote an SG-1 fanfic once where a character used a meat tenderizer as a weapon. A reader kind of laughed at that, declaring it non-effective, and so I felt a little vindicated when a meat tenderizer got some good blows in during that fight.

    It'll be interesting what they do with the "President" (I'm not convinced he actually is POTUS--they haven't actually gotten any communication from the White House bunker, have they?). At least the Nathan James having the Russian guy will prevent him from gleefully infecting more people, right?

    That "cheek shot" took off part of his ear as well. And I'm curious why you didn't like that the good guys got Niels.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the fight in the kitchen. Love the use of the meat tenderizer, as well as using a fork to incapacitate the bad guy.

    What with all the fighting going on aboard the sub, I'd be surprised if they don't accidentally sink themselves or mutiny.

    I'm a little puzzled by Chandler's "Bulgaria"? when someone mentioned all the countries in Europe that had been convinced to join The Chosen. I don't remember anything about Bulgaria being mentioned to make it important.
