Welcome to The Expanse Podcast Double Take. This is where I give you my first impressions right after seeing the seventh episode of season 2 titled “The Seventh Man”. I’m creating these short posts to encourage listener feedback by asking questions about the episode.

This week’s question are…

1) What is Anderson Dawes’ agenda?

2) How is Cortazar sensing the Protomolecule?

3) Why does Mars want Bobbie to lie about the events on Ganymede?

Bonus) Was Anderson Dawes waving at Holden or Naomi?

I’d like to thank everyone who has subscribed to this podcast and encourage you to join the discussion by sending in your feedback by calling +1-805-910-7656 or by e-mailing me at or visiting the website at If you are enjoying this podcast please consider leaving me a review in iTunes.

  1. Hi Mark,

    Elisa for Los Angeles here to chat about The Expanse. I thought this was a very exciting episode with a lot of different storylines building and expanding (no pun intended.) The return of Jared Harris, a wonderful actor, was a thrill. Plus the scenes where Frankie aka Bobbie was being interrogated was fascinating and very suspenseful.

    Now on to your questions…

    1) Anderson Dawes wants the OPA to step up and be a big time power player in the universe. He wants recognition for the belters and respect. He wants the proto molecule and the nukes IMO. And he wants to be their official leader.

    2) Cortazar says the proto molecule is talking to him. I can only assume that the scientists had some sort of communication link with Eros.

    3) I think she is confused, not 100% sure of the events. But what she is damn sure of is that she is a pawn or being used by the Mars politicians. So she doesn’t want to give away all of her intel until she knows who she can trust and to what end.

    4) IMO Dawes was waving at Naomi. He has history with every single belter (Drummer, Miller, Diogo, and Naomi) and is a very charismatic leader. My gut feeling tells me if Dawes ask them to do something that is contradictory to what their job or boss requests, they all will side with Dawes.
