    With the opening of the ring, Mars has basically abandoned the terraforming project. Why try to transform a world that could take a hundred years or more to accomplish when there are thousands of habitable new worlds on the other side of the ring? People currently living on Mars will never see the project completed in their lifetime so why wait for something that will never happen for them when they can just colonize new worlds? I just finished reading Nemesis Games so I don't want to spoil the last couple of episodes. I don't recall if it was something I read in the book or if it was revealed in one of the episodes that already aired, but I believe there is speculation that there is someone higher up that is controlling Marco and the belters. Unless Earth can recover from the asteroid strikes and vegetation can start thriving again, the Earth is a dying planet. Without vegetation, there is no more oxygen production and the atmosphere will slowly become poisoned with too much carbon dioxide unless they can build CO2 scrubbers on a massive scale like the ones they use onboard the spaceships.

    I haven't read the novels but I well understand that Mars is bleeding people to the colonization of the other star systems from what I saw in the show.
    Why wait a century or two when you can be on an already usable planet in less than a year?

    Also, there was the talk about giving the protomolecule to Mars.

    What if the higher ups selling gun ships to Marcos have gotten it into their heads to use the protomolecule to speed up the terraforming process on Mars?

    (Also, could the protomolecule be used to help repair the damage to Earth's ecosystem?)

    Ep 10 is up. Make sure you keep an eye on the end credits scene.

    ...

    Ok, so, now how long do we have to wait for season 6?

    At least we’re done with the tedious Chetzsmoka scenes.

    They show more of what’s in orbit around Laconia

    Ah, so there's no actual end credits scene...glad I didn't miss it! I was a bit startled when it auto-jumped from the end of the credits to the Expanse menu.

    Well, it is an end-credits scene, but not a post-credits scene. :)

    OK, then I missed it. All I saw were some graphics that the credits ran over...so what happened?

    Loved the last scene. Reminded me of the Arboghast disassembly from the Season 2 finale. 5 was great, but season 3 is still my favorite.

    Season Six is going to be interesting if they're
    advancing the Laconian Empire this early in the story.

    If there are already people on Laconia, why did the Mars ship get destroyed going through the Laconia ring?

    I was surprised to see the Alex died part. I thought the issues with the actor came to light after they were done filming/editing S5. Obliviously not.

    I thought I saw a tweet last week from @JamesSACorey saying that filming of S6 has started. I didn't think that could be true since no one from the show had contacted me for my notes from S5.

    If you look at the X-Ray "Bonus Materials" in the Amazon Video UI, there are lots of production stills where Cas Anvar was in the final scenes on Luna- both in the airlock when they reunite with Amos and in the bar/restaurant. Anvar was doctored out.

    Sounds like they went to the Below Deck Med school of editing a character out.

    Some of those scenes in the Luna bar did seem oddly framed: why were they bothering to show so much empty couch rather than tightening up on the principles? But maybe I'm just imagining it after the fact. I was surprised as well although I guess it's better to do it this way than have a S06E01 "while you were gone, Alex kicked it..." type thing.

    oh, it was destroyed? I thought they were showing the "stargate" effect, just not the materializing on the other side...
