Foundation Episode 8 Spoilers
Episode 8 is titled ‘The Missing Piece’ and promises to be a pivotal chapter of the show. There are a couple of missing pieces that the title can refer to, the most likely of which is one that fits into Hari Seldon’s plan for the future of civilization. Considering his recently revived digital consciousness has just realized that the plan is going off-track, there is most likely a new and important detail about it that will be revealed in the upcoming episode. Another related aspect that will almost certainly be explored is Gaal’s newly discovered ability to perceive the future.
We can also expect to see the tense situation on the Invictus develop further as Salvor grapples with the news that she and her fellow Foundation members are on a suicide mission. There will most likely be a violent standoff between the Warden and her captors, the Anacreons.
Lastly, Brother Day is expected to follow through with his promise and undertake Luminism’s brutal religious journey to the center of the Great Spiral. This promises to be a pivotal moment for the galaxy’s emperor as he tries to prove his legitimacy and power to the trillions of members of one of the galaxy’s most populous religions.
Foundation Episode 7 Recap
Episode 7, titled ‘Mysteries and Martyrs,’ opens with Salvor and the rest of the abducted Foundation members taken to the ancient and powerful ship known as the Invictus. It is revealed that the Anacreons, led by Phara, plan on using it to destroy Trantor and bring the Galactic Empire to its knees as revenge for the destruction of their planet.
Meanwhile, Gaal discusses the night of Hari’s murder with a digitized version of the late mathematician’s consciousness and learns that she was meant to be on Terminus instead of on the ship she now finds herself on. Hence, it is revealed that Hari’s plan is off-track, and, as they probe further, Gaal realizes to her horror that she can perceive the future. As it turns out, Hari’s plan is disturbed because of this ability, and Gaal grapples with the shocking knowledge even as she continues her journey towards Hari’s home planet, Helicon.
