Last Resort: Is Marcus a Mad Man? What Went Wrong in D.C.? And More Burning Questions

ABC STILL HAS A MASSIVE THURSDAY PROBLEM Taking some of the bloom off the rose for Grey's Anatomy (TV's No. 2-rated drama after nine seasons) and Scandal  (which hit an all-time high with its sophomore finale) is the fact that ABC's Thursday lead-off spot is salted earth. Zero Hour, Last Resort, Missing and Charlie's Angels are just some of the shows that have lived and died in the 8 o'clock spot in the past two years, so this fall, ABC will try to have its cake and eat it too, scheduling the closest thing to a "returning favorite"  -- Once Upon a Time in Wonderland -- in the impossible slot.

You have been warned. So, now what…?

The debut of ABC’s Last Resort (Thursdays at 8/7c) showed how the ballistic Navy sub Colorado became hunted by its own country, after ignoring an order to attack Pakistan. With the Colorado now in everyone’s crosshairs, Capt. Marcus Chaplin found safe haven in Sainte Marina, then declared a 200-mile perimeter around the isle that, if breached, will have… consequences. With that foundation for the series laid, we sought answers …READ MORE

Did Last Resort Blow You Out of the Water?

Fall TV Preview
LAST RESORT - "Captain" - Five hundred feet beneath the ocean's surface, the crew of the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine "USS Colorado" - the most powerful nuclear submarine ever built -- receive their orders. Over a communications channel designed only to be used if the U.S. homeland has been wiped out, they're told to fire nuclear weapons at a foreign country. Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) demands confirmation of the orders, only to be unceremoniously relieved of duty. XO Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) finds himself suddenly in charge of the submarine and facing the same difficult decision. When he also demands confirmation of the orders, the Colorado is fired upon and hit. The submarine and its crew, honorable patriots, now find themselves crippled on the ocean floor and declared rogue enemies of their own country, on the premiere of "Last Resort," THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network.
