This article contains predictions for the Apple TV+ series For All Mankind season 3, episode 9.
Helios Base is buried under meters of sand and debris after Danny inadvertently sabotaged their drilling mission. In “The Sands of Ares”, the rival teams must work together to locate survivors in the aftermath of this great tragedy. Here’s what happened in episode eight of For All Mankind:
- Sojourner-1 feels the pressure from the landslide. Danielle instantly prepares for a rescue mission.
- Poletov wakes in the landslide, but is clearly unwell. He finds Mueller and they head back to base.
- Wilson meets with Pam and discusses their relationship. Larry is furious to find her talking with her ex, and the couple get into an argument about risky relationships.
- Helios and NASA team up to find a solution to their imminent dilemmas. Margo works with Dev for the first time, finding similarities and a shared respect for one another.
- Danny and Ed are trapped in Hab1 with oxygen rapidly running out. Danny tends to Ed’s wound, but they argue over his addiction and their apposing personalities.
- Karen visits Jimmy and Amber to comfort them in their time of need. Jimmy acknowledges Karen and Danny’s affair, but just feels sorry for his brother.
- Dev brainstorms a dangerous but doable plan. They will use a bomb to blow a hole under the surface, quickly dispersing the sand instead of wasting time digging them out.
- Tyler and Baranov plant the bomb, which goes off just before Danny makes his confession.
- Karen is informed that Danny and Ed are alive and well. Jimmy and Amber hug.
- Poletov dies and Kelly sobs beside his corpse. She then hugs her father Ed, who tries to comfort her.
- Helios and NASA go their separate ways, silently appreciating one another’s expertise and support.
- A Russian doctor tells his superior that Kelly is pregnant. They decide to relay the information to Moscow first. Kelly is unaware that she is carrying Poletov’s baby.
