For All Mankind Season 2 Episode 7 Spoilers
The developments on the political front seem eerily placid. The Soviets are hawkish with their approach towards the Apollo-Soyuz mission, and the seventh episode will see Danielle Poole navigating her way through the Soviet facility. The Jamestown base has been armed, and further developments point at a confrontation on the Moon. The Cold War can be expected to rage on, with dangerous situations likely to arise from the conflict. In episode 6, Ellen reconciles with Pam and also breaks the news to her husband, Larry. However, she is still in a conundrum regarding the reveal of her sexuality.
The seventh episode might see Ellen work towards a different path to achieve a semblance of satisfaction. Since Ed and his team have gone through a simulation program aboard Pathfinder, we might see further developments on this front. Gordo is inching close to Tracy and expresses his desire to get her back. Will he be successful given that Tracy’s husband Sam is in the mix? Or will his mission on the Moon be mired in problems given that the Jamestown Base is on thin ice regarding an impending conflict? In essence, we can expect episode 7, titled ‘Don’t Be Cruel,’ to explore these possibilities.
