It's here … and we almost wish it wasn't. The sixth and final season of "The Expanse" is currently showing on Amazon Prime Video.
So, sit back, strap in, get comfortable in your crash couch, disengage the docking clamp, fire thrusters, engage the Epstein drive and ready "the juice" ... this is the awesome, high-octane, action-packed concluding season of one of the best science fiction dramas ever written for television.
This final season picks up with the solar system at war, as Marco Inaros (Keon Alexander) continues to launch devastating asteroid attacks on Earth and Mars. As the tensions of war and shared loss threaten to pull the crew of the Rocinante apart, Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) makes a bold move and sends former Martian Marine Bobbie Draper (Frankie Adams) on a secret mission that could turn the tide of the conflict. Meanwhile, in the Belt, Drummer (Cara Gee) and what’s left of her family are on the run after betraying Marco. And on a distant planet beyond the Rings, a new power begins to rise.
Holden's decision was just stupid - if the detective would still come out to him and say there were reasons - but no ...
Holden is a cuck.
I like expanse, I still consider it one of the better Sci-Fi series - but I'm disappointed. Season 6 explains virtually nothing (including ignorance of the rings and what's behind them)
It was obvious what Holden's motive was. Love makes us do stupid stuff. But I suspect that his decision will be the lever which turns the entire story on its ear.What's worse is the reason Holden gives in the next episode. Inaros is responsible for the deaths of millions on Earth. If I am Amos I am relieving Holden of command.

I get the reason why. I just think it is poor storytelling. I would imagine that the reckoning with Inaros and Philip will involve Naomi at some stage.
I agree with this, but it's hard for me. I want desperately for people to make choices that save and not cost human lives. I think the equation given that Inaros has killed 10's of thousands and would gladly kill more, it was an awful choice, but I sure would have liked it if he could have found a third way.It shows he shouldn't command the Rocinante.
I've been streaming Star Trek Discovery and the amount of baring your inner feelings there dwarfs The Expanse by orders of magnitude. (And even more aggravatingly, in some situations they only have minutes to save lives or once, all of sentient life in the Federation, yet, they use those precious minutes to talk about how you feel about someone.)I binge watched season 6 thus far and I'm really put off by the monotonous regularity with which characters casually bare their hearts to all and sundry - strangers, subordinates, whoever. It's completely unrealistic and lazy storytelling. A character shows what he is by what he does - humans naturally try to conceal or at least play down their inner workings to those around them, revealing them in indirect ways. The scriptwriter(s) need to respect psychology and get creative.
