The Last Ship (S04E08) "Lazaretto"

This weeks episode “Lazaretto” begins with with Vellek and Christos in a flashback scene.

  Review: this episode got up to a new level, the flow and pace same though with Badawi getting a visit by his “wife” but his “father in law” making him an offer. We also see Badawi have a fling with his new partner. Dr Tyler isn’t free either! She keeps on hallucinating up to…
