Is there a plot for this episode available anywhere? I haven't been able to find one online, and even my cable's TV Guide is just using a generic description of The Orville in general.
Weird that the press release has no plot synopsis. That's very unusual.
Is that normal that there would be such a big gap between the final day of filming and the editing process? That's a little over 7 months.
They must be trying to keep something secret. I wonder what we're in for this time.
Post production for this show eats up a lot of time. That's why there was such a long gap between seasons.
Usually there's a plot synopsis; this week there's not one so far.
This episode has been variously listed as "Shields" or "Deflectors" for a while. Guess they settled on the latter.
Theres some screen shots from the episode posted at https://tvcomicsseries.com/the-orville-2x07-deflectors-promotional-photos/
Sadly it doesn't give you much info about what the show is about, except it deals with Valentine's Day at some point (see the gift basket received by Kelly).
Given its title, my guess is the ship will have some issues with its deflectors when they get attacked by a Krill or another alien ship. We'll see if it's correct or not on Thursday night
My guess is that while that may be true, the title is mainly metaphoric. Especially if it has anything to do with Valentine's Day.
IDK - For a Valentine's Day episode, I would have expected a title like: "The Women!"
Some male crew member forgets to get a Valentine day gift and they need shields for protection.
It's so weird we're less than 24 hours away from it airing and we're still speculating what it's about.
Yeah, it's fun.
Imagine! It's like we're living in the Dark Ages!
Back when we only had Starlog Magazine (and maybe 1 or 2 other mags) for potential spoilers.
This one better be one of the better episodes....
Well, I've only seen one bad one.
You've seen a bad one?
Yeah, the astrology episode was pretty bad.
I'm betting, BTW, that the two-part "Identity" story beginning next week will be about Isaac and Kaylon. I'm guessing that, based on the AMA he did at Reddit recently.
