Last Resort: Big Chicken Dinner

Marcus brings the members of the Colorado and the islanders all together to celebrate their two cultures -- a feast in the spirit of Thanksgiving. But the good times turn bad the next morning when an essential crew member is accused of a serious crime. Grace handles the man's defense and is tasked with finding out the truth.

Recap

The episode begins and it would appear that the crew of the Colorado is finally getting some good news, from the looks of it. Basically, Chaplin announces to the crew that in five days a transport ship will be arriving for those who have decided to leave. As a bonus for those who aren't, the government is also sending food and members of the crew’s families. Everyone present seems happy to hear this piece of news. Mostly it's just good PR conclude Chaplin and Sam, but after a gesture of goodwill for the also food-strapped islanders, whose supply ships have been blocked by the perimeter in the form of a belated Thanksgiving, things start to go awry...
