‘Last Resort’ Preview: Mad Marcus Meets the Negotiator

Just because they’re now on an island doesn’t mean the submarine crew is out of troubled waters on ABC’s new drama “Last Resort.”

A new threat surfaces on Thursday’s episode when a negotiator dials in to talk to Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher), who may no longer be the official captain, but definitely is still running this ship (and is, technically speaking, holding the sub hostage).

Marcus is informed that he must make a choice as the blockade is set to close at night fall and “unless you surrender unconditionally, you will be effectively cut off from the world.”

Then the negotiator plays the dead son card. Uh oh. Watch Marcus’s exchange with the negotiator in the preview clip above.

Considering Braugher’s much replayed line from the pilot — “You’ve been warned” — still gives us the chills, you can expect tonight’s battle to be equally intense.

“Last Resort” airs Thursdays at 8/7c on ABC.
