Reportedly the return of season three of “The Last Ship” is a two-hour episode, featuring a shooting at a nightclub in Vietnam, which kills many people. After the deadly shooting at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando (pictured left) early Sunday morning, this episode was too close to current affairs and it was decided not to air the episode right now, out of respect for the victims. As of today, the number of dead from the nightclub shooting massacre has been amended to 49 (as the additional death was that of the shooter) and the number of injured in the incident is 53.
