'Deadliest Catch' recap: Derrick allegedly smells weed on Jake, and everyone's luck continues to suck
If you thought Jake Harris taking the wheel of the Cornelia Marie for a string of pots was the turning point in an otherwise gloomy season of Deadliest Catch, you must not have watched the end of last night’s episode. Jake went up to the wheelhouse to take a second turn, and Capt. Derrick calmly sent him back down to the deck. After the crew sorted their best pot of the season — 33 blue crab — we found out why: “I could smell frickin’ weed on Jake when I came up next to him,” Derrick told the camera. “You give the kid an opportunity to come up here and lean how to drive, and he’s still smokin’ dope on the boat. That’s unbelievable. You don’t respect yourself, you don’t respect the f—in’ fact that I came out here to do this for ya. That’s the last time he’s drivin’ the boat. That’s it. I gave his opportunity, he f—in’ blew it.” READ FULL STORY
We’re now three hours into season 7 of Discovery’s Deadliest Catch, and I’m officially missing the late Capt. Phil Harris. After last season — the final half of which was so moving it made viewers feel sorry for people who weren’t tuning in — it was hard to look at this series as just a TV show. That’s a fact I know to be true. When I joined Time Bandit captain Johnathan Hillstrand in New York last week to live blog the season premiere with his brother Andy and Northwestern captain Sig Hansen, John told me he was afraid new Cornelia Marie captain Derrick Ray would come off as a villain when really, he’s just doing what he needs to do to keep that boat afloat and the boys in line. I found myself telling John that after watching him be there for Josh and Jake Harris last year while their father fought for his life, I wrote that I’d hug him if I ever met him. He told me to do it, and I did. It didn’t feel like hugging someone I’d met five minutes earlier. READ FULL STORY
the third highest-rated Discovery Channel broadcast of all time, you can watch a repeat tonight at 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. ET. We don’t normally feel the need to bring repeats to your attention, but we’ve heard from a number of readers who said they didn’t see Capt. Phil’s final episode but cried reading our recap. You can tell from reading the thoughtful comments left on that post that anyone who’s ever nursed or lost a parent related to what Phil’s boys, particularly Josh, experienced. (I know I paused the episode and cried after Josh’s heart-to-heart with Phil when he assured him that he’d been a good father and admitted that he was trying to be strong and not cry in front of him, then had to leave the room. My father has been battling an illness for nearly five years, and I remember the moment last October that I had to excuse myself to go sob in the bathroom like it was yesterday.)If you missed Tuesday’s episode of Deadliest Catch, which, with 8.5 million viewers became
I haven’t been able to get the final moments, the montage that draws parallels between Phil’s last stand and the fleet’s war with the raging Bering Sea, out of my head. Set to Johnny Cash’s “Redemption Day,” it’s just perfection. As painful as it is to hear that Phil is gone, when you see the Northwestern burst through that wave at 5:45, you’re reminded that Phil, who would have had that same smile as Sig had it been the Cornelia Marie, had really lived.
