Welcome everyone. I am so happy that you’ve joined me to discuss The Expanse.

This was a good character building episode of The Expanse. We learned a lot of background on the Canterbury’s survivors.

In this week’s podcast after sharing some news from The Expanse I divide my episode into three discussion areas. Ceres Station, Earth and The MCRN Flagship the Donnager.

At Ceres Station, I discuss the effects of the James Holden video and how everyone reacts to the reported act of war by Mars on the Canterbury. During all the unrest Miller just can’t let the Julie Mao case go, even when told to drop it by his captain. Miller questions Anderson Dawes, the OPA leader about Julie and is told by Dawes that he’ll look into it.

On Earth, Avasarala, believing Mars is about to start a war, turns to an old family friend Franklin Degraff, the U.N. Ambassador to Mars. She lets it spill that the U.N. captured an OPA agent with Mars stealth components and how this proves that Mars and the OPA are working together. Degraff insists that Mars wouldn’t do that but he contacts his counterpart on Mars just the same causing some panic as Mars’ High Command sends urgent communications to it’s 9 MCRN facilities, 3 more than Earth were aware of, checking their inventory for missing components. This proves to Avasarala that Mars knows nothing about the attack on the Canterbury.

On the MCRN Donnager, Holden and crew are questioned about the attack on the Canterbury as well as Phoebe station, a restricted base that they all state they’ve never been to. During the interrogations the seed is planted that Naomi is an OPA agent leading them all to question just how much they know each other. Holden is given an ultimatum, Recant his broadcast story and tell everyone that Naomi Nagata is responsible or face the consequences.

I finish off with some great feedback contributions from listeners.
