The Seattle Seahawks are playing in the final of the Super Bowl, and the crews are keen to finish their first trips of the season and get back to Dutch to watch the game. The Time Bandit is pulling big numbers, but things come to an abrupt end when the vessel throws a propeller, forcing a return to port for repairs. The Wizard is too far north to get back in time, but Captain Keith pipes the radio commentary onto the deck whilst his crew work on. Despite poor fishing, Casey and Josh decide to take the Cornelia Marie back to port in treacherous waters to make the game – Josh says he will “swim if he has to”. Celebrations are all over St Paul when the Seahawks win, but Captain Andy and Scott Hillstrand have a massive fall-out when Scott suggests his uncle should abandon the rest of the Opilio season and give the Time Bandit’s quota to him for use on another boat.
