Yes, Terror and Erebus carried a supply of lemon juice to combat scurvy, but after three years, it had gotten too weak to do much good. The crew member who told the captain there was enough open water for the boats was Hickey's spy in the camp, and was lying. Thanks for clearing that up for me. Now I'm wishing I had stayed up to watch the second showing; obviously I wasn't really catching on to what was happening. 4 hours ago, Fellaway said: I was mopping my kitchen floor earlier and thinking about The Terror, as you do, and was wondering, at this point, if Hickey even wants to get back to civilization anymore. He seemed to be really glorying in himself in this episode, not to mention the whole one-with-the-land postures. I was thinking that, too. When Hickey's crew wanted to double back to the Terror, Hickey did not look pleased; then he took himself up to the top of that hill and . . . I'm not sure what he was doing. I'm guessing he was plotting how to keep the men with him because he would never go back. When I saw him in that scene, so distant yet towering over the rest of the crew, silhouetted against the sky, all I could think of was Lucifer's quote from Milton's Paradise Lost : Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven. 13 Link to comment
