The Expanse (2020): S05E03 – Mother


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 finds Ashford’s abandoned ship, confirming his death. She extracts the recording in which Marco Inaros describes his plan to go after targets bigger than Tycho or Ceres, and sends it to Fred, who then forwards it to Avasarala. Drummer eventually decides against going after Inaros. Naomi travels to Pallas Station, where she reconnects with Belter friends Cyn and Karal. She eventually meets Filip, who is angry at her, and they take Naomi captive. On Mars, the meeting of Alex and Babbage is fruitless. Later, Alex is attacked by two assailants and is only saved by Bobbie. On Tycho, Monica shows Holden and Fred a video of a fight that occurred on Ceres in which Cortazar can be identified. Sakai, the chief engineer of Tycho, identifies the people who purchased the shipping container in which Monica was discovered, but they find them already killed. Bull, the chief of security, concludes they have a traitor on Tycho working for Marco Inaros. The first of Inaros’ stealth asteroids collides with Earth.
