The extraordinary fourth season of The Expanse comes to a conclusion– with happiness, hope, death, and danger.
We continue our reviews of Season Four of The Expanse, with a consideration of episodes three through to seven.
We’re a little late here; Amazon Prime, which saved The Expanse from cancellation, dropped the entire fourth season a month ago. However, we’re finally catching up, and we’ll be reviewing it in two or three bits— flotsam and jetsam, as it were.
The Expanse returns! Season Two improved on Season One, establishing the show as possibly the best, more-or-less pure SF series on television.
“Pyre,” “The Weeping Somnambulist,” “Cascade,” “Here There Be Dragons,” “The Monster and the Rocket,” “Caliban’s War”
The Expanse finishes its second season, with characters realizing the Protomolecule will remain with humanity forever.
Guest appearance by a Mythbuster.
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.
