Naomi comes face-to-face with her son on The Expanse Season 5, Episode 3

Just like the second episode focused on specific storylines, so does The Expanse Season 5, Episode 3. It’s time to break down the events.

We didn’t get anything on Amos during this episode. Instead, Naomi was the focus, as she finally found her son. Would the meeting go as she hoped it would?

At the same time, Avasarala continues her focus on Marco and the meteor. She needs to make sure others see the threat. Alex continues to work with Bobbie to get to the bottom of the weapons trafficking, while Drummer decides to go after Marco for the bounty.

Let’s take a look at The Expanse Season 5, Episode 3.

Monica shares her footage

Let’s start with one of the storylines from the second episode. Monica shares the footage she captured that nearly got her killed. She wants to help figure everything out, but Holden and Fred tackle it themselves.

They need to find Monica’s kidnappers, but when they do, the kidnappers are dead. There’s a bigger conspiracy happening here. Can Holden and Fred get to the bottom of it in time?

Alex gets drugged

Meanwhile on The Expanse Season 5, Episode 3, Alex continues to work with Bobbie to look into the Admiral. He speaks to the woman working for the Admirable, but she dodges his questions. He knows that she’s hiding something.

When he gets back to his hotel room, there’s a woman who stops him in the hallway. Alex is attacked by a guy and taken into the room and drugged. He tells the two everything after being sedated.

Just as it looks like he’s going to be killed, Bobbie shows up. She takes down the two attackers, knocking them out. They’re for the police to deal with, but it turns out they’re former petty officers dishonorably discharged for stealing weapons. Everything is starting to add up!

Avasarala meets with an expert on The Expanse Season 5, Episode 3

The episode starts with Avasarala, who is meeting with Admiral Delgado and a new expert, a scientist who looks at the data collected on the meteor.

Avasarala is sure that Marco wants to hit Earth, so she needs to know what a meteor of that size could do to the planet. Sadly, nobody is still listening to her about the threats.

They should do. At the very end of the episode, a meteor does hit the planet. What will it do?

Drummer wants to go after Marco

Drummer and her pirate crew get to Ashford’s ship. When they board it, everything is eerily quiet. The driver has gone, and they’re all sure that something is up.

Drummer decides she wants to go after Marco. The bounty will easily pay for their needs for years to come. But it’s not all about the money. There’s something personal about this decision.

So far, Drummer hasn’t had the chance to grieve Ashford. That’s something she sort of does during this episode, but there’s still more emotion to come for her character. In the end, Drummer decides Marco is not her fight.

Naomi walks into a trap

Finally, it’s all about Naomi. She is now at Pallas, still trying to find her son. When she runs into some old friends, they help her get in touch with Felip.

We know the friends, though. They’re the ones working with Felip at the start of the season.

When Naomi does get to see Felip, he’s understandably angry. She pretty much abandoned him. He’s disenfranchised after everything that’s happened, and he doesn’t want anything to do with his mother.

Naomi tells Felip that the ship she came in on is his. She’s brought it for him. Felip still isn’t impressed, but he does take the ship. He also tasers Naomi and takes her with him. There’s more to come with this family reunion, especially now Naomi knows her own friends betrayed her.
