By  | 

In ‘Written in the Stars‘, Logan tells Rory to call him “Master and Commander.” He says it in a very arrogant way as he walks off. Rory sees the movie reference, and gives him an “Ugh”, but many of you may not know about the movie or what perhaps Logan means by this. So let's check it out!


Master and Commander is both a book book series and a movie based on those books. The film takes place during the Napoleonic Wars on a British man-of-war ship that is ordered to pursue a French ship. There is a fairly lengthy plot description on Wikipedia. Have a read there then come back and discuss… why does Logan make this reference? What does he mean when he wants Rory to call him “Master and Commander”?
