It appears the attack had also been a attempt to remove the Navy SEALs who had hitched a ride on the Colorado in the first episode. Their role in the attack on Pakistan and on the attempt to eliminate Captain Chaplain is still not clear. But as the SEALs, particularly James King (Daniel Lissing) become more aware of the facts and the rogue goverment that commands them, they like the situation less and less, allying themselves with Chaplain. And they are good guys to have on your side.
The attack had been facilitated by Julian Serrat (Sahr Ngaujah), whom the U.S. troops had co-opted on the promise that he will soon get the island back under his control. But Julian is way out of his depth here, and when the attackers tell him they will eliminate NATO official Sophie (Camille De Pazzis), it is a step too far, even for him.
Ultimately, for both Chaplain and Kendal, it is the anchors of home calling from within their hallucinations that keep them grounded enough to survive. But for Kendal particularly, the vision of Christine is painful and difficult with an interesting twist at the end. How that will play out is anyone's guess at this point. But with Kendal projecting Christine onto Sophie to whom he is already very drawn, it is sure to get more complicated. And with the firing key now missing, not only do Chaplain and Kendal have to deal with the enemy outside the boundaries of the island, but also with a possible enemy within. Is there a sabateur in their midst? Apparently so, and whoever it is, that person had been on the sub with Chaplain. So wo is it? Who do you think? Let me know in the comments below!
