Thoughts on this episode: In a word, SHOCKING. I didn’t foresee Souther and all his crew being killed in a mutiny, nor did I foresee the launch of the hybrids. (It’s been a while since I read this novel, and I don’t remember how this all happened in the book – although I DO remember what is coming up NEXT episode. You won’t want to miss it!). It’s interesting to see Amos’s reaction to the hardening of Prax, and yet, although disturbed, Amos completely has Prax’s back. Holden was shocked and saddened that Naomi lived with her sadness at the loss of her son, Filip and that she never shared this circumstance with him. This show had a very interesting mix of military attitudes – loyalty, blind loyalty and responsibility for resisting illegal or unethical orders.
