Welcome everyone. I’m thrilled that you’ve joined me today to discuss The Expanse.
What a great plot moving episode. Miller seems to be getting somewhere with his investigation.
In this week’s podcast after sharing some news from The Expanse, I talk about the three locations of the episode. Ceres Station, The MCRN Tachi/Rocinante as well as the flashback of Anderson Station.
We don’t get any Earth story this week which I title sad about but the Anderson Station flashback more than mead up for it. We learn the plight of Marama Brown and his people. How they’re being branded terrorists by the U.N. for standing up for their rights as human beings. The unfortunate events that transpire haunt Fred Johnston to this day and the monicker “Butcher of Anderson Station” will forever be attached to his name.
On Ceres, Havelock is alive and will recover. Although he doesn’t say it, I think Miller blames himself for what happened to his partner. Leaving him in the hospital, Miller continues his investigation into Julie Mao. He discovered a connection between her, Anderson Daws and the events surrounding the destruction of the Canterbury. Others take notice of his progress and at the end of the episode Miller is kidnapped.
On the MCRN Tachi the crew are trying to decide what to do when they receive a message from Fred Johnson offering them safe haven at Tycho Station. They are torn about the offer. Holden and Alex want to go but Naomi is against it and Amos followers her lead. They know Fred Johnson’s reputation. However, with no other options available, Naomi finally agrees and they make preparations to go to Tycho. They can’t approach the station in a stolen Mars gunship so Fred gives them instructions on how to change the transponder of the ship. Doing so requires them to rename the ship and they settle on the name Rocinante.
I finish off with some great feedback contributions from listeners.
