“Ocean’s 11 In Space”: For All Mankind Season 4 Finale’s Asteroid Heist Teased By Ed Star

Warning: SPOILERS ahead for For All Mankind season 4, episode 7!


Summary

  • The finale of For All Mankind season 4 will be an asteroid heist, which star Joel Kinnaman compared to Ocean’s 11 in space.
  • Dev’s plan to steal the asteroid involves establishing an independent colony on Mars.
  • The mission will make enemies and face consequences as other factions try to gain resources and power on Mars.

For All Mankind star Joel Kinnaman has opened up about the oncoming season 4 finale, teasing that it will feel like Ocean’s 11 if it was set in space. The main conflict of the latest season has revolved around an asteroid that is likely filled with iridium, making it valuable to whichever country gets their hands on it first. Season 4, episode 7 ends with Dev approaching Kinnaman’s Ed, saying they should try and steal the asteroid themselves.

Speaking with Collider, Kinnaman confirmed For All Mankind season 4 will end with an asteroid heist. He compared the upcoming finale to Ocean’s 11, implying just how daring a mission it will be. Check out what Kinnaman had to say below:

Oh man, I don’t know what I’m allowed to say. Am I allowed to say asteroid heist? I don’t know. I don’t think I can say that.

It’s a crazy vision and it’s some kind of Ocean’s 11 in space that’s going on on a solar system scale. It’s a pretty epic ride that we get to go on.


How Will For All Mankind Season 4 End?

For All Mankind season 4, episode 7 also revealed Dev’s plan to steal the asteroid goes beyond the usefulness of its material. He also wants to establish an independent colony on Mars with Ed’s help, using the Goldilocks asteroid as the new territory’s foundation. Since the aging astronaut has no interest in going back to Earth, it appears he will be helping the Helios founder with his mission.

The duo’s plan will no doubt continue to build over the next two episodes, before they manage to enact their mission in the season finale. Just by attempting to take the asteroid for themselves, the pair will no doubt make enemies with other factions trying to get the resources and establish more power on Mars. This is especially true of the Soviet government, who wouldn’t want those resources falling into American hands.
