Innovative, bold, and risky, Episode 6 is an extraordinary metaphor for grief.

We recap the Apple TV+ series Extrapolations Season 1 Episode 6, “2066,” which contains spoilers.

Extrapolations Episode 6 is an extraordinary metaphor for grief. If you look closely, you’ll be treated to a moving and heartbreaking performance by Tahar Rahim, who returns as Ezra.

Innovative, risky, and bold, this episode finally fulfills the promise we expected from the Scott Z. Burns anthology series.

Extrapolations Season 1 Episode 6 Recap

We have the return of Ezra. If you remember, he is the son of Rebecca and Omar. The couple that had been at the climate change conference in Tel Aviv and trying to save birds from a forest fire in the Adirondacks.

The last time we were young, Ezra was nine years old, and his mother introduced him to a whale named Eve in the sea. His father died when he was a baby. Now, Ezra looks just like him, cleverly. There is a reason for that. He is played by the same actor, Tahar Rahim.

What is the Cache Cloud?

The episode is somewhat convoluted, but it appears Ezra plays a replica, pretending to be lost loved ones. In the first meetup, he meets a mother named Natasha (played by Gemma Chan) and their daughter.

He puts a small mole on the right of his face, which seems to upload memories (maybe?) and put him into character. He studies the memories he uploads. The problem is that he uses a company called Cache Cloud to store them — others and his own. Keeping the blockchains astonishing costs more as the temperature rises, so they keep increasing by 15%.

What is “summer heart” doing to Ezra’s brain?

Now, Ezra’s summer heart condition means he cannot have the visual stimuli to keep his conscious memories, so he needs a program called “Mind’s Eye” now but cannot afford it. So, he has to delete memories like his beloved robot dog and even the video of his grandmother reading him a story.

However, the delightful representative reminds him not to worry if memories are gone. That’s the beauty of forgetting, she says.

Unfortunately, his summer heart is putting too much stress on his brain and has reduced brain functioning by 11%. He is now in advanced decline and triggering dementia. The more brain cells that die, the less space he has for memories, which means he will need to upgrade his storage, which he cannot afford.

Who is Lola?

Ezra keeps referring to memories of someone named Lola, who appears to be his lost love. He hires someone from the “Pack,” just like him, to be her replica for a night of passion.

Ezra deleted so many memories when the reproduction studied his memories; there weren’t any memories of her tattoo on her body. He is told by Cache Cloud after she leaves that his storage is now over 104%, so he has them delete all memories that do not have the tag “Lola,” which deletes all memories of his mother, Rebecca.

What happened to Lola?

Lola died from summer heart while she was pregnant with Ezra’s child. He is desperate to keep her memories, but they are all lost when a crash at Cache Cloud occurs because of the rising heat.

Ezra hires his next-door neighbor to locate the missing cloud memories on the black market. That means he takes any job he can get to pay for it. We are talking about kicking people out of their homes, job terminations, and playing cheater so a husband can beat him up.

He cashes in on a family dinner with Natasha and her daughter. They connect as Ezra confesses his tragic backstory and has sex. Ezra, desperate for money, charges her for the sensory experience. She fires him after, but he shows up at her home, where she convinces Ezra he has to let Lola go.

Ezra leaves and heads back to his apartment. His neighbor wants his money, but he refuses to pay. The neighbor says if he doesn’t, he will sell those memories.

While walking with Natasha and his daughter, Ezra sees an ad for protecting families against climate-stressed pregnancies.

The video is of Lola, a memory of her telling him she is pregnant. Except Ezra doesn’t remember it because he had let it go, but it seems familiar. All three then walk away.
