Deadliest Catch still has its favorite old salt at the helm.

Though Cornelia Marie skipper Phil Harris died Feb. 9 after suffering a stroke, the sixth season of the Discovery Channel reality series will—as promised—feature Harris and his crew during his last king crab season.

And this time out looks like a doozy: sibling death threats, deckhand swaps, physical altercations between captains, strange weather and a daring rescue on the high seas. 

And a last chance to enjoy the gruff, smoky wisdom of Capt. Phil.

Though the season is dedicated to "all souls sacrificed to the sea," it's clear which one of those souls will be foremost in the minds of viewers. Put your thoughts in the comments.
