Continuing...slowly...my Mermay saga. The whole incident with Derrick's ship turned out to be a matter of wrong place, wrong time. The true target of Ripper's ire was a giant octopus, the unfortunate crew was merely in the way of a deadly sea battle.
Sharks feast on the unlucky shipmates...and Derrick was left alone, swearing vengeance to his last breath.
And of course there's a theme music too.
