Spoilers for 'Deadliest Catch' Season 16 Episode 7 'Into the Red'

As Zayde Wølf's 'Hustlers' blares on the screen, you can see Captain Jake Anderson and Johnathan Hillstrand celebrate their win. Clearly they have been the winners all along. We're not counting out Sig Hansen and Mandy of the Northwestern as they were the other team that kept turning on the heat and making the most moolah after the Saga-Bandit. 'Into the Red' signals, some major changes for the crews as some of them call an end to their season after being put on the treacherous Bering Sea.

For starters, brother helping brother comes as a piece of good news. Twitterati was worried about Captain Keith Colburn of the Wizard after he struck a partnership with the Saga-Bandit to lay his potential gear in the eastern part. While there is a rich haul for Jake and Johnathan that may have just surpassed their target for the season, they missed out on Keith's calls. But they eventually set things right for the Wizard skipper as they lay his pots, even though the joke about them placed in the shape of the  "Walrus Penis" does the rounds.

Northwestern received a major scare in the form of Nick, a greenhorn who is trapped in the bait freezer. Fearing he might have been overboard, Sig and Mandy task a frantic search all over the ship just to find him complaining and swearing in the bait freezer. But it's a sigh of relief to see no deaths this season as the crew walked away with another rich haul.

Wild Bill Wichrowski is officially now a skipper for a Russian boat. After a season plagued with troubles, he finally used the profits made this season on overhauling the Summer Bay and then took his friend's advice to head to Russia to commandeer one of their boats. It has been a forgettable season of the veteran captain, but his Russian adventure is a new story in itself.

Casey McManus and Josh Harris of the Cornelia Marie call an end to their season as well despite coming close to the quota. Casey added they were about 3,000 pounds short of the target, but they take it and hope for a better season.

Scott Campbell Junior is the man with a story to tell. Marking his return after four years, he's seen enough this season and one of the scariest moments was being just 405 feet away from Russian territory in his attempt to make up for his season quota. The idea was to use the profits to reopen his fishery that was closed for 33 years and somehow the last leg of his journey saw blank pots coming up leaving the dream of reopening the business unfinished.

'Into the Red' had its moments. Saga-Bandit has been one of the teams that have had a solid fan base this season and it will go on for a long time considering the carefree attitude, the fun and the success they bring to the show. Northwestern's clinical methods have made them a fierce competitor and Mandy's future as a great captain is cemented. This one is for the Saga-Bandit and Northwestern fans.
