The Orville episode 12 (airing on Fox next week) is not your ordinary episode of the series; it’s the final episode of the season. This is a chance for the series to tie up some loose ends that we’ve had a chance to see develop over the past several weeks, and hopefully rocket things in the right direction for the next season. (For the record, it’s already been confirmed that there will be a second season of the show airing at some point in the new year.)
Want a few more details regarding what’s coming? CarterMatt has the official synopsis below for you reading enjoyment:
Ed and Kelly seriously reconsider getting back together. However, while Kelly is on a mission with Isaac and Gordon to investigate the origins of an uncharted star, they suddenly crash-land on a planet from another universe. Kelly then makes a decision with unforeseen long-term consequences for the planet, putting Ed in a difficult position in the all-new “Mad Idolatry” season finale episode of THE ORVILLE airing Thursday, Dec. 7 (9:01-10:00 PM ET) on FOX. (ORV-113) (TV-14 L, S, V)
It should not be all that much of a surprise that the relationship between Seth MacFarlane and Adrianne Palicki’s characters would be a cornerstone of the final episode of the season. The foundation of the series was built around these two people, with their very complicated past, trying to find a way in order to travel all over the universe together. They’ve learned a lot about each other, for better or worse, since the start of the season.
Beyond the romantic implications of the episode, we’ve got the fate of an entire planet at the center of the story! The Orville is clearly choosing to go big before they officially tie things up for the time being. It’s a little too early to say if there’s going to be a cliffhanger, but that is decidedly something that has to be considered a possibility.
