Extrapolations Season 1 Episode 1 Recap: The first episode of Extrapolations is a thought-provoking piece about how climate change is going around the world. The series, which is directed by Scott Z. Burns and has a cast full of big names, will definitely get people talking. Sienna Miller gives a thoughtful performance, and Heather Graham is a breath of fresh air in one of the best roles of her career.
Extrapolations Season 1 Episode 1 Recap
What does Nick Bilton want to build in Antarctica?
Nick Bilton wants his company, Alpha Industries, to build Antarctica’s first hotel and casino. Nick Bilton (Kit Harington) is waiting in his hotel for the conference in Tel Aviv. He wants to talk to the people in the building in Antarctica near the North Pole.
He sends Junior (Matthew Rhys), a commercial land developer who works for him, up there to finish the project. But when he gets there, he finds that the Chinese have already set up camp. They say they own the land because it connects to a ridge under the water.
Junior figures out that they probably want to mine the area’s minerals, which include nickel, gold, and cobalt. This is a problem because no one wants to see a mining company from their hotel room. In a way, Junior doesn’t know that he cares about the environment. Why? Because this is one of the few places on Earth where the air and water are still clean enough to build on.

What are people looking for from Nick Bilton?
Nick Bilton has a way to clean water that the whole world needs. Omar Haddad (Tahar Rahim) is talking about a trade at the COP42 meeting in 2037. He represents Algeria. Many countries in the third world want to find safe refuge in Europe. In exchange, others want to be able to get clean water to drink. After Omar says again that he needs clean water to drink, a French representative asks him, “Does he think Nick Bilton will give up the patents?”
He has to leave the conference because his wife, Rebecca Shearer (Sienna Miller), and their unborn child are caught in a forest fire in the Adirondacks. The story gets deeper in the second episode, but we get a taste of it now. Rebecca wants to work with Menagerie 2100, a group that decides which animals will live in the future. After the baby is born, Omar calls his colleague Lina at the conference. Lina makes a deal that could put the future at risk by agreeing to a rise in temperature.
Who is their father of Junior?
Junior’s father is a business owner and developer in Tel Aviv. Ben wants his other son, Rabbi Marshall Zucker (Daveed Diggs), to move back to Miami and become a junior Rabbi there.
Marshall, on the other hand, wants to stay there. There are riots in the area, and the hotel pull stays dry because there isn’t enough water. The air is also hard to breathe. After the sermon, Ben gets a call from Junior, who is upset about the war with China. During their heated conversation, Ben cuts him off because his wife has a cerebral hematoma, falls, and hits her head.
Extrapolations: The End of the First Episode
How does Junior die?
Junior dies when a big walrus bites him and steps on him on the beach. This happens when he talks to his father on the phone and hangs up, pointing to a seal to show that he will shoot his father someday. Then he turns around and looks, and the rest is history.
Nick finally admits on his way to the conference that he doesn’t want the hotel but the mining exemptions on the land. At the conference, he said he would give countries clean water to drink (that demonstrate they need it, so this sounds subjective). If they put a cap on, the temperature won’t go above 2.3 degrees. Nick wants the temperature to keep going up so that the polar ice caps continue to melt and reveal valuable minerals.
