Default Deadliest Catch.......Jake Harris

Anyone watch the final episode for the season tonight? Anyone else think Jake Harris is totally strung out on drugs? Did you see his face at Jake Andersen's wedding? Sores all over his face and thin as a rail. Looks like a meth or heroin addict.

Yup, its sad, my guess would be meth. The sores are a give away, not to mention he seemed twitched and didn't seem to be all there.

He is a bum, no respect for himself or family.

He slept through some of the pots being pulled then had the balls to ask the captain if he could run the boat for a string.

Yeah that's what Sig needs, a druggie at the helm right after waking up from a power nap while the rest of the crew was pulling pots.

Only someone that is totally out of it would ask that of the captain after his performance during the season.

His old man must be rolling in his grave.

His sense of entitlement is ridiculous and sickening, hated watching him go downhill, which he has been for some time. Im sure Phil would have some choice words...

It totally amazes me to see some of the weather and seas these boats work in. I understand that the producers show a lot more than is actually there percentage wise BUT........

Jake Harris is a mess. Looks like the only boat he could work on next season is the Ramblin' Rose.

I agree, sad to see someone battle demons like that and throw such a good opportunity away

I thought the show where his brother went to his house to talk to him he looked strung out on something and could not sit still

Sure is sad

If you watched the wedding scenes Sig and the Hilstrand brothers are about done with helping him.

Sad, yes looks more like meth however he would be bouncing off the walls so a needle and a spoon might not be out of line.

Yes, its very sad. The kid, well he's not really a kid, he is 26, is obviously depressed and needs some professional help. I hope some of his peers recognize this before its too late. Having said that, he is a shining example of that generation of kids who have grown up playing video games every minute their awake. Most of them have neve carried out the trash, brought wood in the house, cut the grass, washed dishes, just normal chores. Dad's out bustin his ass and isn't able to instill that work ethic, then the kid feels entitled.

It's so frigging frustrating how drugs has taken over so many lives and the youth of todays world you just wonder what's in the future. The children, wives, husbands, parents and grand parents that goes through this with one of their own consumes them trying to get through to them and help them turn their life away from drugs but some of these drugs have such control over them it's nearly impossible for them to come clean and stay clean and they end up leading a life in the gutter and depression till the drug or death takes them and the survivors are left with the pain..

One scene of the wedding showed Jake Harris with his hat on backwards. This just eats me up. What a display of disrespect.

I had a 37 year old nephew die last year of a drug overdose and you wouldn't believe how some of the "mourners" dressed. Cut off jean shorts,filthy rags, wife beater shirts, etc and that was mostly cousins of his. One pall bearer had a dirty baseball cap on backwards and I really wanted to knock him out.

It was great to see the other Jake get married, he really seems to have his act together. By contrast...
