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.
Avasarala is condemned over the Pizzouza’s destruction. In order to salvage her reelection campaign, she leaks images of the environmental disasters on Ilus. Drummer resigns from her position, upset over Fred Johnson giving the evidence of Inaros’ location to Earth, as it played into Inaros’ scheme of destroying the Pizzouza and causing the deaths of the Belters on it. Ashford plans to independently hunt down and kill Inaros; Drummer, weary of politics, declines Ashford’s offer to join him. On Mars, with the gang’s upcoming job paying a lot and having many unknowns, Bobbie visits Esai’s home to raise her concerns, but he discounts them as the payoff is what he needs to make his family’s life better. The crews of the Rocinante and the Barbapiccola successfully tether their ships to one another. In the alien structure, the settlers are all blind now, except for Holden. Running out of options, Okoye tests Holden’s optical vitreous humour, finds precancerous cells, and determines that Holden is immune because of his anticancer medication (which he has been taking since absorbing radiation on Eros). She prepares a cure; the blind settlers take it and regain sight. Holden finally sees Miller again, but Miller appears to be glitching in and out, with and without his hat.
