Sorry, this episode isn’t about the fallout from Darulio’s visit to the ship last week... even if he needs to be held accountable... we’re talking actual fire aboard the Orville.
Fire in space is no joke... thought it actually behaves very differently in a microgravity environment. To bad for the Orville (at least in this case), their artificial gravity is working just fine.
The fire leads to a death, which leaves Alara questioning her fitness as chief of security. With her faith in her abilities shaken, Alara hits the gym (simulation) to take out her frustrations on the heavy bag.
Time though, is a luxury she may not have. While Alara tries to exercise... exorcise... while she grapples with her inner demons, strange and terrifying things begin to happen aboard the Orville. Strap in and get ready for a wild ride.
