For All Mankind Season 2 Episode 3 Spoilers
Preparations for militarizing the new space shuttle, Pathfinder, are in full swing. Margo disapproves of the developments but cannot register her dissent since the Pentagon is heavily involved in the program. Political upheaval in Panama points to the accelerating Cold War. Episode 3, titled ‘Rules of Engagement,’ will perhaps deal with this situation and how it affects the space race — especially in the lunar environment.
Moreover, Molly’s program of mapping the Southern Ridge for lithium deposits is frozen because she is back on Earth. The Southern Ridge stands exposed to Soviet infiltration, and the next episode might explore this possibility further. Maybe, the arms race will be conducted on lunar soil. Gordo and Danielle’s induction into the crew of Jamestown might take the narrative further.
Moreover, it remains to be seen how Gordo battles his reluctance and stabilizes his mental state to prepare for the space flight. His broken relationship with Tracy can play a major part in the developments of the upcoming episode. Will Aleida come back in Margo’s life? How does Ed’s decision of selecting Danielle and Gordo affect his relationship with other astronauts? Maybe we will have the answers as the space race continues further.
