Captain Fall – Season 1 Episode 2 Recap & Review

Baptized in Blood

The first scene of episode 2 of Captain Fall shows how quickly Jonathan Fall’s circumstances improve. All eyes are on him when he assumes control of the Caribbean Queen and sets off. People are seen treating him with kindness and respect, which he hadn’t witnessed before. He appears to be incredibly excited and has no idea what is in store for him.

Captain Fall is quickly used as a scapegoat for all the nefarious schemes. He can be seen eagerly signing an illegal contract without even reading it. The documents he signs ensure that the unlawful transactions under his control are approved without his consent. This gives the impression that he is the only person involved in plotting the antics he is completely ignorant of.

In Rio de Janeiro, he has an unpleasant experience. In order to keep him safe, Pedro kills three thieves. Jonathan is presently scarred and puzzled as a consequence. He attempts to report the incident to the authorities. However, Liza, who is posing as a cop, answers his call. She reassures him that the things he went through are not unusual.

Following the incident, Jonathan is still experiencing a lot of anxiety. As a consequence of his apparent guilt, he is unable to function properly in public. The crew acts as though they care about him, something he misunderstands to be an honest display of affection. Following that, they overcompensate in order to prevent him from having too many suspicions and to keep him mentally healthy.

However, Jonathan still experiences terrible anxiety. Mr. Tyrant, the business’s president, receives information as the situation spirals out of control. He then gets in touch with the crew and gives them with an ultimatum. As a last-ditch effort to make things right, Liza attempts to distract an upset Jonathan by seducing him. He develops feelings for her after interpreting her actions as an indicator of love. Following that, he starts functioning normally.


The Episode Review

It’s an entertaining episode with a touch of humor that hits the right notes. One particular situation where the humor is dead-on is when Liza tells Jonathan that everybody on the ship is like family. Following that, he expresses his disappointment given that his family treats him poorly.

We get a glimpse of the illegal business in this episode and learn a little bit about what it entails. Even though the episode is fairly brutal, the fact that the animated show doesn’t take itself too seriously and plays it off as humorous really works in its favor. Jonathan is mentally recovering as the episode comes to a close. It will be intriguing to see how things develop moving forward.
