The Expanse (2018): S03E08 – It Reaches Out


Introduction

The Expanse is an American science fiction television series developed by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, based on the series of novels of the same name by James S.A. Corey.

The series is set in a future where humanity has colonised the Solar System. It follows a disparate band of antiheroes – United Nations Security Council member Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), police detective Josephus Miller (Thomas Jane), ship’s officer James Holden (Steven Strait) and his crew – as they unwittingly unravel and place themselves at the centre of a conspiracy which threatens the system’s fragile state of Cold War.

Outline

Melba hides the body and returns to the Thomas Prince. She briefly meets Anna. Holden keeps scanning himself for brain defects and protomolecule, finding neither. Miller only shows up when he is alone. Using timestamps from Monica’s footage Holden determines Miller first appeared when the racer entered the Ring. Monica’s cameraman swaps out a circuit on the Rocinante. Miller says he is an Investigator and he and Holden are tools for “it” to get to the Ring. Melba destroys the Seung Un and sends a message with Holden claiming responsibility. The Rocinante is unable to communicate a denial. On the Behemoth Ashford demands they fire on Holden to prove the OPA is not with him. Drummer gives the order. The ship malfunctions but eventually fires. Holden is able to get Amos to give him a minute alone, whereupon Miller says they should aim for the ring but they are moving too fast. Holden convinces Alex to slow down and enter the Ring. The acceleration hurts everyone on board. The ship starts to enter the Ring with the missile just behind it.
