The protomolecule still exists, Fred Jones is losing control, and a new character joins the team. His dark past we see beginning with his first appearance.
We’ve upgraded to two more reviews of the continuity-heavy series, one next week and another at season’s end.

While “The Seventh Man” may spend some time setting up the rest of the season, I wouldn’t say the show is slowing down.
The next review will appear at the end of Season Two; here’s a place to discuss the most recent episodes.

With the remarkable episode “Home,” we reach the heart of Season Two, and a major turning point in the series.
While I believe the discussion should be open to “series-thus-far” spoilers, please use spoiler tags when referencing future events from the novels.

“The Mormons are gonna be pissed.”
This season doesn’t waste any time getting to the next crisis. This week contrasts striking visual designs with galactically horrible decisions. Our protagonists do these horrible things for what they believe are good reasons.
Unfortunately, the episode ends with them unable to find comfort…..

Plots converge and suspense intensifies with the most recent episode of The Expanse.
Note: We will post discussions if they receive responses. In any case, the season will receive two more multi-ep reviews, respecting its story-arc-heavy nature.

For those who’ve grown tired of superheroes and magic spells and want some science fiction on the small screen, contemporary television’s great, dark Space Opera has returned for its second season.
As with the first season, we’ll be reviewing the first two episodes (once again, premiered together), and then follow with weekly discussions, and reviews of the first and second halves, as the best way to address the story-arc-heavy show.

The second half of The Expanse takes its viewers on a thrill ride through the transformation of Julie Mao, the secrets of a derelict ship, and the machinations of those who seek war.
