A flashback to Julie’s origin story reveals her trajectory. Holden and Miller finally meet and team up to get to the bottom of the strange emergency situation happening on Eros.
Oh, Julie Mao. You didn’t deserve to die like that, alone and no one to care about you. That bastard Dawes didn’t even answer her messages. It’s possible he never got the messages, but I’m not going to give him the benefit of the doubt. He’s been shown to be pretty ruthless so I don’t doubt for a second that he left Julie there to die. I can’t wait for Miller to shoot his ass. Julie died for the Belters and believing in their cause, not knowing all along that Dawes was just using her. So sad.
Come on, does the show really think Miller and Holden will die after being exposed to such a high amount of radiation? Who are they kidding? I can’t believe they didn’t leave that room full of dying people as soon as they saw what was inside. Were those people injected with the virus? What the fuck is Julie’s dad’s plan? Were they test subjects? Damn!
Fred Johnson broadcasting that message is not good for Earth because he just made Earth the target and pretty much told Mars that Earth was responsible for shooting down the Donnager and the Canterbury and starting all-out war. If people really think about it, though, why would Earth do this? Time for Avasarala to shoot back and figure out a way to get Earth out of this mess.
Kudos to the actress who played Julie. That must have been one hell of a scene to shoot with her getting sicker and sicker and dying a slow death. It was so gross when that thing started coming out of her mouth and to also see it growing all over her body. Great job to the special effects team.
