Foundation (2021): S01E06 – Death and the Maiden


Introduction

Foundation is an American science fiction streaming television series created by David S. Goyer and Josh Friedman for Apple TV+, based on the Foundation series of stories by Isaac Asimov.

Outline

Brother Day arrives at The Maiden, the holy moon at the centre of the Luminist faith. He undermines Zephyr Halima by pledging to build a moon-wide desalination system in honour of the moderate Zephyr Gilat, but Halima gains the upper hand with a galvanising eulogy of the late Proxima Opal that subtly criticizes Imperial cloning. On Trantor, Brother Dawn pursues a romance with Azura Odili, a palace gardener, and bares his deepest secret: he inexplicably has minor genetic traits, such as colour blindness, that differentiate him from all previous Cleon clones. On Terminus, the Anacreons recover Dorwin from the wreckage of the Aegis and round up colonists with the skills necessary to repair and crew the Invictus, a long-lost Imperial warship that Phara’s people rediscovered and plan to use to attack the Empire. Salvor escapes the city with the help of two children, and decides to take out the Anacreon corvettes to strand Phara. During the mission, Salvor is struck with a vision revealing the murder of Hari Seldon was part of Seldon’s plan for the Foundation, but the escape pod Gaal took had been intended for Raych. In Salvor’s absence, her father Abbas sacrifices himself to blow up the corvettes. Salvor and her lover, the Thespin trader Hugo, are later captured by Phara. Salvor is forced to pilot Hugo’s ship, the Beggar, to the Anthor Belt with the captive colonists.
