On this week's Episode title "The Pointy End of the Spear", Kylie works with Admiral Shepard to bring down the President, using evidence of what really happened in Pakistan. This affords Marcus the opportunity to surrender the Colorado, if all goes according to plan.
500 feet beneath the ocean's surface, the U.S. ballistic missile submarine Colorado receives their orders. Over a radio channel, designed only to be used if their homeland has been wiped out, they're told to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan.
Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) demands confirmation of the orders only to be unceremoniously relieved of duty by the White House. XO Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) finds himself suddenly in charge of the submarine and facing the same difficult decision. When he also refuses to fire without confirmation of the orders, the Colorado is targeted, fired upon, and hit. The submarine and its crew find themselves crippled on the ocean floor, declared rogue enemies of their own country. Now, with nowhere left to turn, Chaplin and Kendal take the sub on the run and bring the men and women of the Colorado to an exotic island. Here they will find refuge, romance and a chance at a new life, even as they try to clear their names and get home.

From the first episode of the show I couldn't help but count the days when the next episode would air. I know most people would think its not really what one would do in a real life scenario but TV shows and movies this days are based on facts vs fiction. Stop criticizing the show and just enjoy it.
The acting is also great. Would love to have such a captain in my sub any day anytime. I think it will really be a great show with the action, suspense. I just can't help but wonder what would happen if the government pushes to the edge. I think it will be a great show all in all.
