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.
Amos, Clarissa, Erich and the rest of their group reach Lake Winnipesaukee, attempting to commandeer a suborbital shuttle. As they prepare the shuttle for departure, Clarissa persuades him to allow some of the winter staff of the now-abandoned mansions to join them, to escape the recent disaster. Avasarala learns that Pallas Station has been attacked by Earth forces, and leads a mass resignation from the Cabinet that results in the current Secretary General standing down; she later accepts the nomination to return to the position. Drummer learns that Naomi is still alive aboard the Chetzemoka but is powerless to aid her, as Inaros orders Drummer to lead a strike force to destroy her friends on the Rocinante. Filip is manipulated by Marco once again with his mother’s survival. Alex and Bobbie realize they are closer to Chetzemoka than Holden is, and alter course in the Razorback. On Earth, a private security detail ambushes Amos’s party in the evening darkness, but after a brutal firefight, they are able to successfully launch, bound for Luna.
