The Expanse S06E02 is the second episode of the sixth (and final) season of 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. Unlike previous seasons, there are only six episodes in this final season, which is a concern for all diehard fans of this beloved series.
Entitled “Azure Dragon”, The Expanse S06E02 brings Bobbie Draper back into action on board the Rocinante, as Holden and crew take effective steps to tilt the Earth-Belter war in favour of the UN. This episode continues to cement the series’ reputation for being one of the scifi space operas streaming currently. Compared to say, Star Trek Discovery, there are realistic stakes with The Expanse, where one feels that anything could happen to the characters out there in space.
On the other side of the hostilities, Marco Inaros’ ascension into iconic status is not bearing well with his son Filip, who is beginning to feel the weight of causing thousands of deaths in the name of the Belt. If nothing else, there’s a sense that the Inaros fall may come from within rather than without. Elsewhere, Drummer is consolidating her own position as she plots against Marco from the inside amongst the disfranchised within the Free Navy itself.
Which is, of course, very intriguing, and certainly with only six episodes available, we expect that the plot will be picking up pace as we would already be halfway through the season in the next episode! While that annoying fact continues to grate on all diehard fans, we trust the show runners to not compromise the quality of the series and we anticipate that the last four episodes of the series (for now) will be something to behold.
Now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
… still there’s more …
