Last week in episode titled "SOS" fans saw Tom Chandler and his team battling one of the toughest challenges they encountered in their entire journey. Chandler and Tex were captivated by Russians and all that they want in return was Dr. Scott. While Slattery took the commanding position, Dr. Scott finally made the discovery and found the cure. However, she wilfully surrendered to Ruskov and gets onboard Russians' ship. Here she met Neal, the scientist who is infected by the deadly virus. Later, Tex and Chandler take things under their control and attack Russians. At the end, they successfully find their way out of Russian ship. They also manage to bring Dr. Scott and Tophet's family with them. Meanwhile, Neal also finds a way out.

"The Last Ship" Episode 9 (Trials) picks up from where the show left. TNT teased spoilers from the penultimate episode in the synopses released by the network. As the title of the episode and media report suggests, the next episode will put the vaccine to the test.

Elsewhere, Chandler's family becomes vulnerable to the virus and its deadly effects. His wife and father battle to "keep his family alive." Will he reach on time to save his loved ones?
