There’s a new goal for Chandler and his crew: to get the Commander in Chief away from Sean and his people. Meanwhile, Dr. Scott continues to work toward creating an aerosolized cure, and Neils proves to be more of a crazed maniac than any of us realized.

Here are 8 Moments of Goodness from The Last Ship, “Alone and Unafraid”:

One of my favorite things about The Last Ship is how perfectly the crew of the Nathan James is able to execute their elaborate plans. Nothing causes mass panic than one quiet fellow suggesting to the lady next to him, that the beeping he hears seems suspicious. As a result, Chandler positions himself as the perfect guy to join the President’s security team, and we see him about the most nervous he’s ever been as he takes the job.

Just an anesthetic.

Bivas kisses Burk, but only just before she fixes his nose. “Don’t get your hopes up,” she says. “That was just an anesthetic.

Tex is a distinctive man.

After seeing Neils, Green and Tex talk about whether or not he’d recognize them. Green calls Tex, “Duck Dynasty,” and Tex replies that he knows he’s a distinctive man. It’s funny in the moment, but wouldn’t you know, Neils does recognize Tex.

Green has moves.

For starters, I may never look at a teddy bear the same way again. Neils’ sick plan to infect children with adorable, infected teddy bears is unthinkable, but thanks to Green, it doesn’t work. Green volunteers to hand out one of the bears, then instead tells the little girl to run. When Sean’s men pull guns on him, he shows his moves and takes them both down. Meanwhile, Tex shows off some moves of his own, kidnapping Neils and shooting several of Sean’s men in the process.

KITCHEN FIGHT.

Of all the places for a bloody fight, the crew battles the bad guys in the kitchen, and they make great use of the tools available to them. Forks are used for stabbing, plates are thrown, and Burk actually wails on a guy with a frying pan. Meat mallets are also involved, and we get to see Chandler’s knife skills.

With all due respect…

Yes, Chandler and Bavit do pull a gun on the president after explaining that they have to get him away from Sean’s men. Still, Chandler does it while saying “with all due respect.”

Exploding teddy bears.

Green sees to it those teddy bears aren’t going to infect any children. He douses them with gasoline and lights them on fire before joining the rest of his team to head back to the ship. Teddy bears go flying as they all drive away.

Who’s that, boss?

The look on Tex’s face when Chandler tells him the guy sitting next to him is the President? Priceless.
