What a finale! For All Mankind Season 3, Episode 10, “Stranger in a Stranger Land,” not only wrapped up another season of the show, but also another decade. This episode excels at bringing plots (and people) together, while still leaving the characters dealing with an unthinkable tragedy. For All Mankind is a show that not only delivers on the build-up, but also doesn’t ignore the aftermath, and shows decade after decade how it stays with us. The one-hour and 23-minute episode is packed full to the brim with tension and heart-racing action, leaving plenty for us to obsess over while waiting for Season 4 and 2003.

in the White House, Ellen Waverly’s (Jodi Balfour) story for the season reaches its height when she reveals to the world that she is a lesbian. This is a big shake-up, and the finale begins to examine the consequences and possibilities that she now faces. Even as the vice president, who has conservative social views, confronts her, President Waverly commits to her earlier decision to come out. She isn’t featured much more in the episode, leaving much up in the air considering she has two years left on her term, but we do get the delight of Ellen visiting Pam once more, but this time with a freedom she never had before, especially since Deke Slayton advised her to stay in the closet for the remainder of her career.
“Stranger in a Strange Land” also reveals the actual first person on the Red Planet, Lee Jung-Gil (C.S. Lee). In a series of flashbacks that open up the episode, North Korea secretly sends two men to Mars in what they claimed to be an unmanned probe. The other man dies upon impact, but Jung-Gil survives, even if he is ghosted by his nation. It’s when he is almost ready to give up on ever making it back home when he encounters Danielle Poole (Krys Marshall) and Grigory Kuznetsov (Lev Gorn), who knock him out and take him back to their base, making him a member of their crew and giving him the ability to exchange videos with his lover back home.
Of course, there’s still the crazy space event of the finale. Kelly Baldwin (Cynthy Wu) is near the end of her pregnancy but develops pre-eclampsia. Her need to get to artificial gravity and better medical supplies aboard the Phoenix in orbit is emergent. However, they only have a limited amount of fuel to get her there. The entire crew at Happy Valley volunteer to stay behind to help her make it to the Phoenix. The engineers at NASA create a way for her to reach the spacecraft by strapping herself to the top of their Mars Surface Access Module (MSAM) and essentially jetpacks herself the rest of the way. It’s crazy — but it works. She safely has her baby.
But as the Happy Valley crew prepares to wait 18 months to leave Mars, Ed has a few things to deal with, including Danny Stevens (Casey W. Johnson), who still hasn’t confessed that Karen cheated on Ed with him. He does however explode with guilt about causing the drill explosion. At the end of the episode, Ed banishes Danny to North Korea’s probe, promising to bring him supplies for the remainder of their time on Mars. But with the Season 3 finale ending with only a look at Margo in her new home, this is the first time that the audience won’t get a glimpse at this world’s technological advancements ahead of time.
With a show that knows how to pull a punch while also weaving perfect themes through its characters, Season 4 of For All Mankind could go to unpredictable places that are impossible to expect.
