Shadow and Act has an exclusive clip from this week's episode of Apple TV+'s Foundation, focusing on Lou Llobell's Gaal.
Here's the description:
A flashback related to ritual a ceremony held by the community reveals the origin of conflict between faith and science. This is when Gaal expresses her need to attend university despite her parents reluctancy. This flashback also reveals the start of Hari Seldon's (Jared Harris) mentorship over Gaal. In present day, the standoff on Terminus takes an unfortunate turn. As Salvor Hardin (Leah Harvey) warns headquarters to caution a retreat, her decision is undermined and Terminus is seized.
Based on Isaac Asimov's book series, the television series follows "stories of four crucial individuals transcending space and time as they overcome deadly crises, shifting loyalties and complicated relationships that will ultimately determine the fate of humanity."
When revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon predicts the impending fall of the Empire, he and a band of loyal followers venture to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilization. Enraged by Hari's claims, the ruling Cleons — a long line of emperor clones — fear their unrivaled reign may be weakening as they’re forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their powerful legacy forever.
The series also stars Jared Harris, Lee Pace, Leah Harvey, Laura Birn, Terrence Mann, Cassian Bilton and Alfred Enoch.
