Interview contains spoilers for 6.01
returned last Friday for its sixth and final season, picking up right where it left off. Marco Inaros (Keon Alexander, Tyrant
) and his Free Navy are still at war with Earth and Mars, with most of the characters lined up against him. After betraying Marco, Camina Drummer (Cara Gee, Strange Empire
) and her crew are on the run, while James Holden (Steven Strait) and the crew of the Rocinante
remain free agents working with UN Secretary General Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo).
is a space saga, but it’s also about finding your family, and if episode 6.01 (”Strange Dogs”) is any indication, it looks like this season is going to stretch its families to the limit. The gang on the Rocinante
are still grieving Alex (Cas Anvar)’s death last season, and they’re not all thrilled to have Clarissa, aka Peaches (Nadine Nicole), aboard. Drummer’s people on the Tynan
are also reeling from their losses, and as captain, she is going to have to make some tough decisions to save the people she loves. Marco, meanwhile, is having trouble with his own family – namely his son, Filip (Jasai Chase Owens). Still a target of Marco’s cruelty and manipulation, Filip is using alcohol, sex, and bravado to quiet his inner conflict, with limited success.
