It made me laugh and I am not offended at all.

This series is very well done. A wonderful ride.

Spoiler:
Given the thirty-year time jump after the next season/book it makes sense to end it next season. This series has been pretty solid so far so hopefully, it goes out on top.

That's a big pretty spoiler to people who aren't book readers. Maybe you want to hide that behind tags.

It also says without Cas Anvar, so that question has been answered as well.

Too late cause I read it.

My general question - is this like GOT where itís not finished, or have the books wrapped up? Likewise, does this mean the series will conclude as intended, or are they being forced to condense?

Good to see it's renewed for another season and they know going into it that it'll be the last.... but it sucks because there is obviously far more to tell with this series.

IIRC, the final (9th) book is set to release next year.

Book 9, the final one, comes out next year. But books 1-6 tell a complete story, with 7-9 representing a sequel of sorts with most of the same characters years later. It wouldn't feel like a bad place to end the show after book six.

^ That's probably not a bad idea.

And, if they are so inclined, they could adapt the final three books some time later down the road.

Looks like the authors intend for this to be a pause after S6, not conclusion of entire story: https://www.polygon.com/2020/12/10/2...7-beyond-plans

Amos is killing it this season. Initially I thought he was an annoying meathead, but in these first 3 episodes of the new season, he's shown his more perceptive side. Good shit.

I think Frankie Adams and Cara Gee are hot as hell, too. Adams has some proper thickness and Gee is just sexy in a seductive way. Hell, her character sleeps with that perfect eye shadow and make-up. And likes bush.

It's difficult but I'm waiting it out until they all drop.

What was the item the robot took out of the journalist's room in Ep4?

I believe the robot was in Fred's room. The journalist was there after being rescued. It was getting the last sample of the proto-molecule.

Oh, they had that on Tyco? Must have missed it being mentioned. Thanks.

Fred was telling Holden the location as he died.
