WARNING: This article contains spoilers for The Expanse season 5 episode 8. Read at your own risk.
The Expanse season 5 episode 9 is coming next week on Amazon Prime Video, with the title "Winnipesaukee." This is going to be a significant episode as it serves as the penultimate of the sci-fi. There'll be a huge battle on the way, which will continue in the season finale.
The episode title of The Expanse season 5 episode 9 was already mentioned in the previous episode. It's a place for Amos (Wes Chatham) and Clarissa (Nadine Nicole) where they could escape Earth. This could be the best exit plan for both of them, especially since the latter is seemingly familiar with the place.
The biggest problem, however, is finding a way to get there. But, while the title suggests where Amos and Clarissa may end up, there is no guarantee that they'll be successful with the escape. Also, there is a real concern for those left behind.
Amos and Clarissa were aware that the future of the planet is not certain -- mostly because of Marco's (Keon Alexander) plan. In episode 8, the two decided that they "need to get out" of Earth before it's too late and they were able to reach Baltimore.
Meanwhile, Naomi (Dominique Tipper) is the biggest concern in The Expanse season 5 episode 9. She woke up on the Chetzemoka, but she eventually realized that the ship is a bomb. Marco thought she wasn't alive anymore and interested to know how she "died."
Filip (Jasai Chase Owens) told Marco that Naomi went out of the airlock, and it's her decision she died. They didn't know that she survived and reached the Chetzemoka. However, the ship remains a bait for the Roci crew. If they come close to the ship, it could trigger a bomb explosion.
Elsewhere, The Expanse season 5 episode 9 sees Drummer (Cara Gee) not in good shape as she's still managing her grief. Meanwhile, Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) tries to flex her political muscles amidst great opposition. She wanted to save the innocent as much as she can.
The galactic war between planets has been a huge part of the story throughout the fifth installment. All of them have their own set of goals, but one wrong move could lead to a massive loss of lives. A huge battle is coming, and everything comes down in the season finale.
The Expanse season 5 episode 9 airs on Wednesday, Jan. 27, on Amazon Prime Video.
