'Last Resort': Search for Missing Crew Begins, But a Turf War Proves Deadly (Exclusive Video)

The search is on for the crew of the USS Colorado on Last Resort.

The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive scene from Thursday's episode, "Eight Bells," in which head of the sub Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) gathers the troops in search of three missing crew members, bringing him to Mayor Julian Serrat (Sahr Ngaujah). It's he who Chaplin hopes will be of significant help.

After exchanging obligatory pleasantries -- complete with Serrat's emphasis on the Colorado's temporary accommodations on Sainte Marina -- Chaplin gets down to business. What he gets in return, however, may not be what he had in mind.

"Those people over there, their son was killed because of your interference here. You brought violence to this island. Now this child is dead and this woman is in mourning," Serrat tells Chaplin after showing the captain a grieving family.

Chaplin then clamps down: "I understand our presence here has been a burden. There's no need for us to quarrel because if we do, you'll lose."

But not until Serrat has the final say: "A death by a thousand cuts. That will be war with me."

Last Resort airs 8 p.m. Thursdays on ABC.
