For All Mankind Plot and Cast
Towards the end of Season 2, the conflict between Americans and Russians reaches a crisis point, both on Earth and moon. At the Jamestown base, the Marines engage the Russian cosmonauts in a gun fight, leading to the potential meltdown of a nuclear reactor.
To save everyone on the base and prevent the moon from becoming uninhabitable for thousands of years, Gordo and Tracy must fix the issue. They cover themselves in duct tape and run into the harsh environment of the lunar surface. They are successful but lose their lives in the process and die as heroes in each other’s arms.
In lunar orbit, Ed faces off against Sally over blasting a Russian spacecraft. In orbit around Earth in Apollo, Danielle goes against orders and docks with the Soyuz. Her handshake with a cosmonaut is broadcasted around the globe and inspires President Reagan to make peace with the Russians.
Following the emotional funeral of the Stevenses, Margo receives a call from her Soviet counterpart Sergei. But it is revealed that he is working with intelligence agents to try to turn Margo into an asset for their side. The camera then focuses towards Mars where a pair of boots crunches on the red soil.
