10 Random Things We Thought About The Expanse Season 3 Episode 5

Here's 10 random things we thought while watching this week's episode of The Expanse.


The Expanse is a smart show made my smart people about smart things and that's great! But we want to highlight the random moments that made us laugh, cry, and go, "oh snap!" Because really, when you think about it, Belters, Martians and Earthers are just like us, and that's an observation worth celebrating. See all-new episodes of The Expanse every Wednesday at 9/8c, then check out our post-episode musings in this blog series every Thursday morning!

1. You're the Worst


We think that Admiral Wynn is kind of the absolute WORST. Souther for the win!

2. They're the Worst


On a scale of 1 to 10 it was pretty darn heart-wrenching to see Katoa suffering like this. Dr. Strickland and Jules Pierre are now in a three-way tie with Admiral Wynn for being the absolute WORST.

3. When [Space] Pigs Fly

Missing media item.

Hold up! Holden told Naomi that she was right!! Has the atmosphere frozen over?!

4. Dear Mama


We almost fell out of our seats when Naomi dropped the bomb on Holden (and us) that SHE’S A MOTHER!!!!!!!!! Will we ever get to see her son?!

5. Work! Work! Work! Work! Work!


What exactly is “the work” that will be finished “SOON!!!” that Katoa kept yelling about? So ominous!

6. How Low Can You Go?


Just when we didn’t think Jules Mao could sink any lower…he does. He offered up Mei - who reminds him of his own daughter - for poking at prodding even after what happened to Katoa. Sheesh. Have you no spine, Mao?!

7. Hell No, We Won't Go!


We agree with the Captain of the MCRN Hammurabi. War. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing, yo.

8. Mean Girls


When Ensign Sinopoli said that Avasarala was “kinda mean” at first it made us LOL.

9. A Gentleman and a Scholar


RIP to both Souther and the last bit of morality aboard the Agatha.

10. The Amazing Race


Our hearts are RACING! Will Prax and co. make it to Mei in time?!
