3 Big Questions…
That lead to more questions.
Who Gets to Kill Fletcher?
The queue (like how I used the British word?) to settle the score with Fletcher is about…. 278 people long (average Arleigh-Burke class destroyer complement plus Chandler plus Sasha minus the five dead sailors). Who leads the line, though? Easy one. Sasha. Among the crew of the Nathan James, she feels Fletcher’s betrayal most acutely. If you hadn’t picked up on the burgeoning romantic connection between the two intelligence operatives, let me set you straight. They were together. And now, Sasha blames herself for not ferreting this fox out of our hen house before he’d done his damage. Given how cool she acts as a combat operative, I don’t expect her to let Fletcher out of her sights again. But, if she does hesitate, Chandler won’t think twice about blowing Fletcher’s brains out.
How Do We Get the Seeds Back?
Action. Lot’s of it, but not what you’d think. The James suffers from a HUGE disadvantage now, though, so they’ll need to get sneaky. Without the seeds on board, the Greek ships, which now number at least 3, have no reason NOT to fire upon the James. Also, as has been pointed out over and over, the James can expect NO back-up, especially now that the United Kingdom has turned their yellow backs on the United States. As much as I want to see the James come into the Mediterranean and John Wick the heck out of the Greek Navy, that attitude would be suicidal. They’re going to need to find out where the lab is, get there undetected, and extract the seeds all while everyone knows that they’re coming. Not easy. I hope an unlikely source pops up and can provide some aid because the odds look terrible right now. I wonder if we can steal one of those Greek ships… We DO have an extra captain on board after all.
Will Lucia Continue to Pursue the James?
I think so. She had me going when she took over the missile firing station on the bridge of the Greek ship though. I thought the rage she felt toward Chandler for playing her just might seep through and overwhelm her better judgement. Technically, the last thing her father told her to do was to sink the James. Even though Giorgio successfully recovered the seeds (and Fletcher’s worthless soul), completing the primary objective of the naval action, she’s not done. She took it very personally when Chandler used her and she has command of three ship flotilla of Greek bad guys. She will probably get right in the middle of the James’ mission to recover the seeds and make life very difficult for our beloved crew.
What questions do YOU have? How do you think the James will get the seeds back?

Lets be honest here, Fletcher did exactly what Sasha or ANY of the James’s crew would do if their roles were reversed. Sure the US intends to share – but only after they benefit first (and in UK eyes, they were left to suffer and were devastated by the Immune wars, where was the US then?) As for “the United Kingdom has turned their yellow backs on the United States” – what you mean like US ambassador Joseph Kennedy advised the US to do in 1940? Leave the UK to its goose stepping fate? Funny how its ok for the US to do it, but not the UK – there’s a word for that – hypocrite

Can’t say that for sure! They would very definitely receive orders like that, but killing British sailors on the way out? I don’t know about that.
