Recap of Season 1 Episode 8 of Make My Day
First, though, let's get to the story. Coldfoot is an icy prison planet where humanity is mining a precious ore named Sig with the help of the inmates at the White Prison. However, the excavations have awakened a deadly bug race, which threatens to devour the planet and everyone on it.
Jim, an aspiring artist and part-time prison guard, lives with his grandfather Ed and is in love with his neighbor, Marnie, who is a pregnant woman with another man's child. With the help of a robocast named Casper, Jim rescues Marnie from a settlement called the Dustbox.
Marnie, the colony's previous captain, Bark, doctors William and Rachel, and Cathy Beck, the public face of humanity's Coldfoot operations, have all devised a strategy to get off-world without the aid of the shuttles, which have all been predictable by the more "important" members of the colony.
Cathy and Bark have come up with a strategy. The former has sent a distress message that will be addressed within 24 hours, but before that, they must get a lifeboat into orbit around the system with the help of the massive mass driver in the gigantic Sig depot. However, a huge horde of larvae creatures is chasing them there.
From this point on, everything is in sync, with Robert attempting to save himself. The encroaching bugs are a nice ticking-clock tool, and a last-second launch into space saves the group from doom.
