When they commissioned the fourth season of Last Chance U, surely they were not expecting this outcome? Or maybe they knew Coach Brown’s team was going to implode eventually. The third season feels like a lifetime away. Episode 6, “S Show”, really is a s**t show.

I think what makes the entire situation worse is that team members are admitting at this stage that all they are trying to do is secure a scholarship. Everyone is fighting for themselves, and the team has become secondary. “S Show” reveals that Coach Brown has lost control of the team. He’s even lost control of the coaching team.

Brown tries to instill positivity at the start of the episode, but then they lost again. There does not seem to be any luck or break for this time. Every team seems to have them figured out. “S Show” sees Coach Brown give his coaching team and players a mental kicking in a montage of clips, claiming that he needs to cut out the cancer in the team. A part of me agrees with him, that there are too many bad influences and that the coaches have been too relaxed, however, what if Coach Brown is also the problem?

Episode 6, “S Show” shows another game that ends in disarray as Coach Brown ends up in a touchline spat with the referees at Iowa. To be fair to Jason Brown, he was unfairly penalized by the referees repeatedly, and he finally lost his head and got suspended for a couple of games. He takes accountability for his actions and apologizes to the team.

The last Game Day of the episode should have been a test in whether the team plays better without their coach present. After going back to basics, things look to be turning around for the Pirates, but then they lose, while Coach Brown is sipping whiskey in a bar.

Last Chance U season 4, episode 6, “S Show” shows no signs of improvement. What an incredible season this has been.
