Avenue 5 Episode 2 Recap:

The second episode of the first season of ‘Avenue 5’ saw the show marching along its path of confusion and incompetence in the characteristic Iannucci fashion. It starts with Captain Ryan Clark addressing the passengers. However, he is unable to contain their frustration and uses Joe’s funeral as an excuse to postpone the conversation.

Next, Herman Judd refuses to pay for Avenue 5 being rescued. However, Iris manages to convince him to donate his coffin for Joe’s funeral as a good gesture.

Billie introduces an engineer named Cyrus to Clark. Cyrus tells Clark that, according to his calculations, the ship should not take more than six months to return to Earth. Clark gets overjoyed and ignores Billie’s suspicions about Cyrus’ calculations.

On Earth, Rav and her team meet a NASA representative. NASA has agreed to organize a rescue mission for Avenue 5. However, Judd will have to pay a hefty amount for it. Judd ends up insulting NASA on the video call due to the delay, prompting the representative to leave.

Then, the passengers and crew of Avenue 5 gather for Joe’s funeral. Billie tells Captain Clark that the coffin might be too heavy since Joe was overweight and Judd’s coffin is quite weighty. Clark ignores her advice and orders for the coffin to be released into space. However, Billie’s fears turn out to be true and the coffin starts to orbit around Avenue 5 due to its weight.

Towards the end of the episode, Avenue 5’s gravity gets reset by the control unit on Earth. However, the crew of the ship had not been notified about it, causing another minor upheaval.
