Doctor Who Season 13 Episode 6 Recap

Episode 6 of ‘Doctor Who’ season 13, titled ‘Flux: The Vanquishers,’ starts with the Doctor projecting her mind into different places simultaneously using help from Azure and Swarm. As her search for her TARDIS continues, Yaz, on the other hand, fights the Sontarans. There are 3 versions of the Doctor now, and each one is trying to fight the threat from the Sontarans.

One of them heads towards the enemy fleet while the second one stays with Yaz. After learning how fond of chocolate the Sontarans are, the Doctor offers to provide them with unlimited access to it in exchange for psychic operatives Jericho and Claire. The Doctor further finds herself in disagreement with Azure and Swarm. The pair wish to see the Flux destroy everything, setting up the whole event in a destructive loop, so they can witness it happen countless times.

Meanwhile, Karvanista is devastated to learn that the entire Lupari fleet has been destroyed. The Doctors assemble in a unit to defeat the Grand Serpent besides bringing Vinder and Claire aboard by catching the former’s signal. Before the big final Flux event, the Doctor and Kate Stewart realize that the Sontarans plan to use the Lupari ships to shield them while bringing in their own fleets.

Karvanista, along with the Doctor, manages to double-cross the Sontarans and defeat them. The Doctor then uses Passenger as a channel for the Flux to pass through, and in the process, saves everyone else from being devoured by it. The Doctor lands in Atropos, where Azure and Swarm “ascend” before finally being transported to Karvanista’s ship. Before heading off, the Doctor drops her fob-watch somewhere into the TARDIS, where she never intends to find it.
