Deadliest Catch' season 6 premiere: Big tempers, heavy hearts, sinking stomachs

Discovery's Deadliest Catch returned last night for the premiere of a season dedicated to 'all souls sacrificed to the sea.' The one on fans' minds, of course, is Capt. Phil Harris, who we're watching fish his final season aboard the Cornelia Marie. The season could not have gotten off to a more tense start with Phil's sons, Jake and Josh (pictured), fighting so badly that Josh was looking for a job on another boat. Phil and Northwestern captain Sig Hansen decided to swap Jakes (or, as Phil called them 'cocky and cockier'). Had we not known that Jake Harris was missing time with his dad, maybe we could enjoy this idea more. It's interesting to see the challenges of switching boats - Jake Harris already got clocked between the eyes because the cages on the Northwestern are different, and Jake Anderson fell into the tank on the deck of the Cornelia Marie and owes the crew a case of beer. ('Did you hurt your girlish figure?' Phil cracked over the intercom, laughing from his chair.) It's also nice to see Jake Anderson feel so comfortable being himself around the Cornelia Marie crew. But you know, I worry about him getting as attached to Phil as he is to Sig, only to lose him. Thinking back to Jake finding out on the Northwestern that his sister had passed away still breaks my heart.
