Tread Perilously — The Expanse: Back to the Butcher

Tread Perilously’s “People on Ships” sci-fi month continues with The Expanse episode “Back to the Butcher.”

When Fred Johnson sends a message of amnesty to the crew of the Roci, they must decided whether or not to trust the Butcher of Anderson Station, who bombed a mining colony to smithereens some years prior. Meanwhile, on Ceres Station, Miller continues to search for Julie Mao while also spending some time looking into the assault on his partner, Havelock. But will he have to owe local OPA bigwig Anderson Dawes a favor to bring in a dangerous cop hunter? Also, will the “Remember the Cant” movement make Miller’s life harder?

Self-described “art cheerleader” Laura Núñez joins Erik and Justin for her first experience with The Expanse. The wild variations in Belter accents gets examined while Justin brings up Havelock’s “language lessons.” Erik dimly recalls the last time he watched the first season of The Expanse. Laura discusses her filmography and her need to see Latinos in space. Justin points out missing castmembers. A warning against Caillou is issued. Laura’s attempts to piece together the running storyline leads to interesting ideas and she learns the truth about Miller’s self-loathing.
