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.
Drummer accidentally discovers the remains of Klaes Ashford’s ship with great remorse. Amos returns to Earth for his recently deceased foster mother, Lydia, and finds her senior boyfriend Charles is about to be evicted. Amos confronts crime boss Erich to secure Charles’ housing, and plans to meet someone before leaving his home planet forever. On Tycho Station, Holden receives a message from Monica, the reporter who claims to have proof of a plot stealing the protomolecule, but later finds she is missing. He eventually rescues Monica, nearly dead, from a shipping container on Tycho. On Mars, Bobbie reveals to Alex that she has been investigating Martian weapons trafficking with the help of Avasarala. Alex fails to approach Admiral Sauveterre, a possible trafficker but finds himself a date with Sauveterre’s charismatic personal assistant, Lieutenant Babbage. Avasarala’s concerns about Inaros launching an attack on Earth still fall on deaf ears.
