It’s officially “Game on,” crabbers.
Johnny Law, the real (and awesome) name of the captain of the Lady Law on “Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove’s,” isn’t on the high seas to make friends — he’s there to make money. That’s why the skipper issued the aforementioned challenge to the competition.
“If I piss somebody off, then, good,” Law says in the above clip from tonight’s second episode, a sneak peek that is exclusive to TheWrap. “Nobody owns the ocean.”
“Balls to the wall, baby,” the man who pilots the 83-foot vessel lays out his plan for a fishing victory earlier in the preview. “Haul ’til you fall.”
His giant boat can carry 140,000 pounds of crab — more than twice what the next guy can — so Law may actually burn through manpower faster than his full-speed-ahead strategy burns through gas.
Toward the stern-end of the 2-minute-11-second “Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove” clip, Law idles viewers through his familial crabbing history. While Johnny was born into the trade, it doesn’t sound like he had a heck of a lot of training or compassion along the way. Looks like he’s doing all right for himself, however.
“Dungeon Cove,” the first “Deadliest Catch” spinoff, premiered last week.
