    Well, yeah. What is there to indicate otherwise?

    I mean, if they'd said "Next season on For All Mankind," I'd concede the point. But they didn't. It was presented as part of this season. And yes, they were using it to tease their plans for next year...but they did it in this episode, so it's fair game.

    In other TV shows, anything post credits is considered a preview. I was the first person to post about it and as I said, I'd rather err on the side of caution. Plus some people may have missed it since it was post credits, so why not give them an opportunity to go back and see it before reading about it here?

    They're considered previews if they're presented as scenes from future episodes. That is not the case here.

    I don't agree. I think it was presented as a preview for season 2. I don't see any problem with spoilerizing things that might be considered a spoiler for someone. I've seen it, so it's not a spoiler for me. But I'm not going to argue about it any more. Do what you want.

    I gotta say this show is outstanding. Growing up through this time period and loving the space program I suppose heavily influences my feelings. But the acting is top notch, and thy hit a home run casting Joel Kinnaman in the lead role. Supporting cast is wonderful, too.

    That should be "thou hit a home run." Get your Middle English cases right!

    :D

    It's a preview of next season. Previews usually consist of scenes from the future episode.

    That's what I though at first, but I was confused because I wouldn't expect a nuclear rocket to have a smokey, fiery plume. The configuration of the rocket almost exactly matches the Sea Dragon, as was pointed out above, so I agree with the previous post that's what it's supposed to be.

    OK, sorry, I missed the part where they said "Next Season on For All Mankind."

    He said, sarcastically.

    No, it wasn't a preview of next season. It was the end of this season.

    Well, we'll just have to agree that you're wrong; it'a preview because it's a scene from the next season and it came after the end-credits. It wasn't explaining or extending anything that happened in the episode, it was a teaser from the next season. Moreover, the voice-over, in the mode of previews, was lacking in context, teasing us with a preview of the next season.

    Apparently you are the kind of guy that won't recognize a flash-back if the date is not displayed on the lower-thirds. Sometimes things are clear from context and don't have to be spelt out.

    Except, of course, next season hasn't even been filmed yet...

    It is a teaser like the those shown after the Marvel movies — a whole different category which isn’t really a spoiler, IMO.

    ...which was scripted, filmed, and edited as part of this season, not next season.

    Just because some people can't understand the difference between a time-jump and a trailer for future episodes doesn't mean the rest of us should have to pretend we don't either.

    We have no idea what next season is about. This scene is simply meant to say that everything in this season is over with. People are not stuck on the moon waiting for rescue. They gay thing was put back in the closet. ...

    Well, based on the preview scene, it will
    at least be about building out Jamestown, developing and launching big dumb rockets like the Sea Dragon, and continuing competition with the Soviets. (Perhaps we will be bleeding them dry with an extended space race instead of Afghanistan and Star Wars.) And Ed and Karen are still together.

    Sorry, but you're not in the right on this one no matter how much you want to be, that scene is the final scene that ends Season 1, much like the final scene in a Marvel movie after the credits, it's considered part of that movie

    Finally got around to watching the season finale.

    OMG! Sea Dragon! SO awesome! The largest rocket ever designed.
