“Assured Destruction” escalates all of the conflicts while also providing plenty of suspense, smart dialogue, and great character moments
The third episode of The Expanse’s third season, “Assured Destruction,” doesn’t have nearly as much action as the first two episodes, but it certainly isn’t any less intense or suspenseful. The continued escalation of the conflict between Earth and Mars takes a much larger focus this week as Errinwright convinces the Secretary-General to launch a preemptive strike against Mars. Shawn Doyle, Jonathan Whittaker, and Elizabeth Mitchell as Errinwright, Sorrento-Gillis, and Anna, respectively, are all in top form and play off each other beautifully. Mitchell continues to be a great addition to the already highly talented and diverse cast.
[..]. Anna’s face leads me to infer she doesn’t trust him. Is she prepared for this battle of wits? I think so.
