Foundation (2021): S01E10 – The Leap


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

Hari, a second digital copy of the original, explains the Vault was his casket all along, which transformed after being jettisoned and reached Terminus before the colonists. He also reveals the Foundation’s true purpose was not to safeguard knowledge, but to forge a new civilisation assisted by Anacreon and Thespis, and suggests using the Invictus to fake a “megaflare” to make it appear Terminus had been purged of life; this would allow the Outer Reach to develop in secret from the Empire. As Hari returns to the Vault until the next crisis, he tells Salvor that her visions were not sent by him. Months later, Hugo is captain of the Invictus, and Salvor is running for mayor of Terminus. When Salvor learns she was conceived by Gaal and Raych before being carried to term by her mother Mari, she realises her visions are her genetic parents’ memories and leaves Terminus in search of Gaal. On Trantor, Brother Day decides to spare Dawn over Dusk’s objections, but Demerzel kills Dawn anyway, affirming that her loyalty to the Cleon dynasty supersedes Day’s wishes. Day is later informed that the anti-Empire conspiracy also altered the DNA of Cleon I’s body long ago, affecting not only all extant replacement clones, but also Day himself and possibly his predecessors. In 12,240 E.I., Gaal lands on Synnax, and at the ruins of her hometown, she finds another pod under water into a spaceship wreckage and awakens Salvor who tells her she is her daughter.
