‘The Expanse’ Ep 5×09 “Winnipesaukee” dropped Jan 27, 2021
It’s the penultimate episode!! How did we get here so fast?!?! So many things are happening. Secretary General Paster took Admiral Delgado’s horrible advice to strike back at Marco byway of a strike against Pallas. Clearly, Avasarala is beside herself at this move. When the new Secretary General makes clear his plan to continue with follow-up strikes against Martians and Belters alike, Chrissie washes of hands of the administration. With her resignation, other cabinet members follow her lead and the new leader is immediately remove with a vote of no confidence.
Hit play and listen in as Brad and Cort break down Ep 5×09, “Winnipesaukee”. The pieces on the board are moving closer and closer as Naomi continues to fight. She uses every tool she can to make certain that her friends don’t fall into Marco’s trap. Drummer is forced to make a choice between her friend and her crew.
Marco continues manipulating Filip. This time they’re angry that Naomi didn’t try to kill herself. She wanted to escape Marco yet again. Filip is heartbroken that he’s been “left behind” yet again. Any hope that he’ll remember slapping his mother before she took that walk? It has to have been on his mind since he witnessed her “death”. Meanwhile, Amos and Clarissa have gathered quite the tribe as they take another shot at getting off the planet.
What decision will Drummer make? Can Naomi save her friends? She’s been fighting so hard, can she save herself? She is in control after all.
