The drama on Syfy’s The Ark heats up as the remaining members of Ark One struggle to stay on course and complete their mission, as seen in an exclusive clip from the upcoming fifth episode titled One step forward, two steps back.
In the clip, Lt. Spencer Lane (The outpost Reece Ritchie) faces Lt. Sharon Garnet (Maid Christie Burke) for the shocking revelation that he is a clone. Lane demands that Garnett give up command, but Garnett refuses, believing that he is still the best person to command the ship. The official link for the fifth episode is: “As a radioactive leak sparks a crisis, there is a break in the murder investigation. Someone will have to be sacrificed for any hope of survival.”
Check out the exclusive footage below.
On a colonization mission set 100 years in the future, the crew of Ark One experiences a cataclysmic event one year before reaching their destination. The event leads to the death of many high-ranking officials and others. Three lieutenants – Garnet, Lane and James Brice (By Sandman Richard Fleeshman) — must act quickly to save the remaining members of Ark One and continue their mission.
The Ark created by Dean Devlin (Independence Day) and Jonathan Glassner (Stargate SG-1). When Digital Trends spoke with the creators and cast, Fleeshman discussed the idea of leadership and the struggle to be in charge as a pivotal story that would develop throughout the first season.
“There is a bit of an appeal Game of Thrones fighting for the chair,” Fleeshman said. “Throughout the series, the captain’s chair remains vacant for an awfully long time, perhaps indefinitely. It is always pride of place on the bridge. It’s kind of in the background. Everyone has their eyes on the prize.”
Its fifth episode The Ark airs at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 1 on Syfy. You can stream it the next day on Peacock.
