Salvation Truth or Darius Recap Season 1 Episode 3 – As “Truth or Darius” opens, Liam and Dr. Cole are hard at work on the EM drive, the impossible propulsion technology that is the key to saving the Earth from destruction by the asteroid. It turns out that they have six days to produce a working prototype because the government plan to stop the asteroid involves a terrible tradeoff.
Salvation Truth or Darius Recap Season 1 Episode 3
They can use an existing space probe to break up the asteroid. It will then not destroy the world, but “only” cause a billion people in Russia, China, and a number of other countries to die in a firestorm. Only if they can build a working EM drive that will propel Darius’ mission to stop the asteroid will the government not go through with its plan.
Darius has another problem in the fact that Liam is being distracted from the task of saving the world by his novelist girlfriend, Jillian. His solution is to give her a job so that the distraction will not be too time-consuming for his prize genius. Liam objects to this because he feels he must then lie to her constantly about the possible end of the world.
In the meantime, Harris is having problems on a number of fronts. He has to deal with an estranged son who is getting arrested at anti-nuclear protests. Then he discovers that his fiancée Grace purloined the nuclear material that Darius needs for his plan to save the world mission. To top that off, his fiancée went behind his back to a White House advisor, who happens to be an old girlfriend, to try to stop the government plan concerning the asteroid.
Liam hits upon a way to quickly find a microwave frequency that will cause the EM drive to have thrust. He, Cole, and Darius create a working prototype to demonstrate to Harris and the government team. Unfortunately, the prototype blows up on the test stand. So the government plan is still on.
Finally, Darius has to deal with Amanda, a reporter who has found out that he acquired fissionable material from the government under dodgy circumstances. He gives her a cover story that his company and the government are embarked on a joint expedition to Mars in the near future. However, later, Amanda is on a dark street when a car comes out of nowhere and runs her down, deliberately. Someone does not want the truth to come out.
