I’m not sure I like the new Naomi, when did she get so weepy and emotional?

No kidding, getting sick of her. Last episode she took over. She is destroying the show.
Reality of space, She would have been dead for sure making that jump without a suit that distance.

Yeah, that scene really bugged me. I saw what they were trying to do and they did introduce that autoinjector with oxygenated blood an episode or two earlier. Problem is, when exposed to the vacuum of space, you just pass out in 10-15 seconds. So she wouldn't have been conscious to either use it or operate the airlock on the other ship.

In absolute zero temps, she would have been a brick by time hit the airlock

Actually, without atmosphere to carry heat away from the body, overheating will happen first. You won’t freeze until after you’re dead and the body stops generating heat. Even then, it’ll take a LONG time for the heat to dissipate without convection. That’s why in the books the station at the center of the slow zone is still incandescent after being hit by the gamma ray burst (caused by something I can’t remember.)

I don't know about awesome, but it was a step up from the last two episodes.

I thought that was a very good season finale, even with the “I’m a leaf on the wind” surprise that I don’t remember happening in the books.

Not to give too much away... Did they kill him off in the book? I'm sad.

Stayed away from this thread until I watched it all.

Enjoyed the heck out of it, and loved the ending.

Sorry, not a drama critic, in fact, lack of BS drama made me like it more.

Was no different, the lack of safety tie downs while on EV`s was not a good write in
For it though.

One episode left, I have seen the first nine, and a few things that bother me about this season, which has overall been great:

1) Naomi magically warning Holden that the reactor on the Rocinante is booby trapped from across the solar system, just as he is about to power it on. That was cheap writing.

2) Naomi figuring out the wire she needed to cut transmission of the second booby trapped ship's message that she was stowaway on. Think about this, for a moment... If she knew the wire to cut to stop transmission, one would know...
a) That the internal signal from recorder to transmitter inside the wiring is not encrypted
b) There's a pretty good chance this is an analog signal and not digital, given how it recovers instantly and there is no garble at the leading or trailing edges

So therefore, being one of the smartest folks in the 'verse, she would have been able to conclude that this data pathway could easily be interfaced with a microphone, allowing her to make a direct transmission in her own words using the makeshift mic she had already fabricated with the helmet. She had to have known that Marco would have found her out quickly, the moment she began manipulating the transmission, so why not say what she wanted to say?

Secondly, if she had figured out the pathway from the transmission equipment, one could also reason she would have found the pathway to cut external control. She knew she was expendable at this point, so her choice of going back and forth while choking due to lack of oxygen, over and over, is questionable.

3) The directing has taken a noticeable step backwards in this season. In the past, there was exposition through the likes of Miller. I know what's going on--I'm aware of nuclear winter on Earth due to the asteroid impacts and dust being sent into the atmosphere, but there's no direct mention of this by any of the characters or even society. The winter "just is," and ordinary viewers might not connect the dots. Likewise, hearing an inner monologue from Naomi rather than her poopy grunt faces of pain while she's wrestling with what to do during her whole ordeal may have enhanced the experience immensely.

I like this season, I just feel it could have been better so far. One more episode to go. smile

Alex being killed off was BS! The budget committee had to make room for a new character, though, so someone had to go. frown

TOTAL

BULL

SHEET


He hasn't died in the books, and the incident was cheaply written by gradeschool level scripters. This is absolutely, 100% a budgetary decision, as one could tell through much of the season with little details here or there. Amazon may have saved the show, but they're scrimping on the pennies. Take the airlock scene where they space the guy in retribution for the belter betrayal--there's no gust of atmosphere, no billowing of clothes, simply doors casually opening and the guy beginning to gasp for air.

Words do not described how pissed I am here.


I'm not writing the show off, as the next season may be full of popcorn, but these ass hats running the series need to check themselves and stop trying to do fancy pants nonsense like the Game of Thrones showrunners did when they ran out of source material. Alex didn't need to die.


I feel the quality of directing and writing was not up to season 1/2/3 quality, and the tension was poorly conveyed compared with how they did in the past. Overall, this was a better season than season four, but I felt they held back and didn't put as much effort in as they could have. There are numerous instances where the attention to detail we've grown accustomed to was ignored and Hollywood "because" emerged, instead of hard sci fi physics.

Hmm, seems they killed him off due to sexual misconduct allegations that surfaced after shooting wrapped. That explains the lameness that followed the still they edited in of him when he was removed from the show.
