Amos learns the truth about Holden

To the extent that Season 6 of The Expanse, we saw Amos (Wes Chatham) brushing at the role of the Rocinante in how feels an endless war with Marco Inaros (Keon Alexander) and his Free Navy. He’s worried he’s not getting paid enough, of course, but he’s also concerned that Captain James Holden (Steven Strait) is leading his crew down a path Amos didn’t sign up for.

On last week’s episode, “Force Projection,” we saw Holden make a last-second decision to disarm the missile that allegedly destroyed Marco’s ship, the Pella. He could have ended the conflict right away, but he withdrew because the Pella was also transporting Filip (Jasai Chase Owens), Marco’s teenage son, with Roci engineer Naomi (Dominique Tipper), who happens to be Holden’s girlfriend. It was a quick decision, built on mountains of emotions, okay? But since only Holden (and all of us Expanse viewers) knew what really happened, everyone else involved said, “Whew! A dud!” or “Damn it! A freaking dud?” depending on which side they were on.

That’s about to change this week, as this episode four exclusive clip, “Redoubt,” reveals a whole lot. Just as curious and concerned about the “dud” as the rest of the Roci crew, Peaches (Nadine Nicole) does a little below deck weapons research, yielding startling information that she shows to Amos, noting that what she’s discovered is “way above my paycheck.”

Oh, you know Amos will handle it, okay. Another clip of “Redoubt” is coming Thursday, then you can stream the entire episode Friday on Amazon Prime.
