The protomolecule-infested asteroid Eros has dodged the commandeered Nauvoo's collision course, and begins propelling itself toward Earth with Miller aboard and the Rocinante in pursuit. Guided by the Rocinante's sensor scans, Miller takes his dead-man's-switch nuclear bomb into the asteroid to destroy the 'seed crystal' believed to be controlling the protomolecule's activities. Meanwhile Earth's government debates whether Eros has been weaponized by Mars, and launches a volley of nuclear missiles to intercept it. The asteroid unexpectedly deploys stealth technology and accelerates, causing the inbound missiles to lose their target lock. Holden has Fred Johnson relay an offer to Earth, to use the Rocinante's sensors to 'paint' the asteroid so that Johnson's technicians on Tycho station can guide the missiles. Earth's military suspects Johnson of trying to hijack control of the arsenal, but following a plea from Holden, Avasarala vouches for him. As the Roci enacts their plan, Eros ...

This marks the end of the first book of the series.

The markings on the wall by the captured scientist appear to be Feynman diagrams. These diagrams are used to describe the behavior of subatomic particles.

When UN Secretary General Gillis (Jonathan Whittaker) is about to launch the nuclear missiles at Eros Station he says "What a caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly". This is a quote from the 1977 novel "Illusions: the Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah" by Richard D. Bach.

Definitely some of the best Sifi I have ever seen. Not sure how they can top this episode and it's just mid season. I agree completely with the previous comment, it would make an epic ending in a movie. I haven't read the books, but the story can certainly go anywhere, lets hope Miller is around for the ride.

Last night's episode of "The Expanse" on SyFy brings the show up to the end of the first book, "Leviathan Wakes," and they hit a home run with this production. A well funded, written, and produced long run television series with author involvement is the new standard for bringing epic future fiction to the audience. Even a short and simple book like "Ender's Game" struggles to fit into the two hour big screen format without hugs cuts and annoying compression; it took fifteen 40 minute shows to tell the story of "Leviathan Wakes" adequately. I am looking forward to "Hyperion" with great excitement!

Greetings from Lithuania.

To call "Home", 5th episode of "The Expanse" great or amazing would be an underestimating thing. This is a masterpiece, pure and simple.

I did enjoy this show so far, which had a great story and a decent production values yet i wasn't blown away by it. The story was great but overall it wasn't amazing show - it was just good. But this particular episode was like "Ozymandias" from "Breaking Bad" - the highlight of the entire show (so far). And its not only a highlight of this show - everything here worked on the highest possible notes - directing (terrific pacing), writing, music, acting - this has to be one of the very best episodes I've ever seen with the ending that did generated a small tear in my eye.

Overall, whether you did or not love this show so far, "Home" is not only a standout 43 minutes of "The Expanse" - this is a masterpiece of a small screen cinema.

This is the best episode of the best show on television. Home is the most emotionally moving and satisfying episode of the series. The sacrifices our beloved characters are willing to make and do make are truly moving. The scope of this episode is astonishing. We see a man end his journey when he rediscovers his humanity in the embrace of an alien wonder. We also see his ultimate sacrifice to save Earth and possibly humanity. It is a transcendent moment. Folks, it does not get any better than this!

I don't remember siting on the edge of the seat the whole episode since I was watching Danger Mouse as a kid. This episode was just great, but you have to fallow the story for a season an a half to understand it fully. I think not all episodes are so exiting and it is not possible to make them as this one is. Story needs a slower parts for getting to know the characters and different plots, and there is plenty of them in this series. Looking forward to see next episodes... And off course Thomas Jane as Joe Miller.

Be warned, spoiler....

A perfect blend of creating a touch of AI by tweaked particle substanced connected to a humans subconsiusness growing like a virus. Not aware of its own demise. A fine good episode, would alsow be a good ending. Whats next to come is interesting. Since they came upp with such a good story so far, ill optimistic.

seeds of matrix, dark city, they live, 13th floor, sphere, if u know em it means its volatile mix of art. A good night story if u want, but it sticks and never fades. This episode is a echo of the mystery of the unknown.

The expanse has good episodes. So far no weak or bad.

This episode elevated The Expanse to new heights and new directions. You can put this episode right next to Ozymandias, Battle Of The Bastards and such. It's great to see how different series reach episodes like these.

The greatest episode in a Sci-Fi show, is one that is the most human.

What a twist.

The Expanse quickly became one of my favourite sci-fi shows when I binge-watched the first season last year.

It's a strange feeling, having a story end in the middle of a season. Not many shows do this anymore. In this case it works in the show's favour because this story has lasted ever since the first episode of the last season. It doesn't feel like anything has been rushed or been dragged out for too long, the full story has been told and the ending is beautiful.

The mystery behind Julie Mao's disappearance and Joe Miller's quest to uncover the truth has been interesting and exciting to follow. Miller is my favourite character and as much as I hate to see him go (unless they bring him back somehow) it was still a fitting end to that storyline. Of all the possibilities to kill his character that was probably the best, dying as a hero.

Because the last episode was very CGI-heavy it came as no surprise that we barely saw any scenes of outer space or ships in this episode. However, the CGI-scenes that were in this episode were still very good. The scene where Miller found Julie's infected body looked really good as well as the final scene when Eros hit Venus.

I'm curious to see what happens next. Is that the end of the protomolecule? Or did Julie's father keep another sample of it somewhere on some space station? A man like that would probably have a back-up plan or other science experiments. Then there's still the conflict between Earth, Mars and the OPA which I think will be in the focus in the upcoming episodes. It's going to be interesting to see what new story will be introduced and I'm really looking forward to it. I hope it will be just as good as this story was.

After thinking about this episode for a few days I had a notion that perhaps the proto-molecule isn't malevolent and that Julie might have infected it through her contact. This might be why Eros was heading to Earth; because Julie was in control of it (but in a dream) and simply wanted to go home. Any thoughts?

Not sure where the series is heading next but I am going with it!

This episode was suitable to be a season finale. Miller dry sense of humor was on display all episode alone on the Eros with his "pet" nuke. The final scene was something you rarely see on any non premium channel shows, let alone a sci fi show. One of the most touching moments in TV history.

You thought the end to episode 2.4 was amazing? You haven't seen anything yet. This episode deals with what happens next, and is utterly utterly gripping television all the way. People have to come up with daring plans. People have to set aside distrust and try and work together. Politicians argue. Ordinary people do incredibly brave things. It will keep you gripped all the way. It never forgets the characters at the heart of it. And thus manages a very powerful ending that has the emotional impact to stay with you after. Brilliant tv.

Pure poetry, beautiful......Miller - a true archetypical and yet atyipical epic hero.

To The Expanse team, you deserve an Oscar. Thank you, thank you!

Excellent episode. If you make it this far in the series, you will be hooked. The rest was good, but this episode was magnificent!

This may be the best episode of tv I've ever seen. I've been a fan of this show since the beginning but this hour was just unbelievable.

The tension of the situation between Miller on the menacing Eros, the crew on the Rocinante and the brain trust on Earth is amazing.

I don't know how the producers, writers and actors did it but they must be proud of their achievement. After watching it I was stunned. That's NEVER happened to me before with television.

Season 2, episode 5. Perfection.

This episode was terrible! I hardly made it to the end. I was full of disbelief at the unimaginative script more suited for 12 year old girls. The fact that Julie survived, retained her personality after a certain death was mindbogglingly banal! I was waiting for some kind of a twist, anything that would make the story more than the slush that it was. Miller, the policeman finally had his closure at the expense of the storyline that was sickeningly primitive and oversentimental. For the second half of the episode the crew basically stood around doing nothing, with Naomi talking to Miller in a detached almost unemotional way. Waste of time!

Some of the character's reactions are slow like if they were on some kind of opiate or weed, that was killing me. Earth having only 600 missiles in its defensive system doesn't work at all, these are small missiles and they've been preparing for Mars/Earth conflict for 10 decades... with industry so powerful that 15 billion people don't have to work at all.... and Epstein drives being so cheap that belters can afford them (while not having money to buy clothes!!!). Rly, it should be 70 000 ...... closer to the books.. at 5 % c... and then it would be feasible to turn that "roc" into plasma.
