Foundation Episode 7 Ending Explained: What happened in the ending? 

Towards the end of this episode, viewers are taken to the ship Raven, on which Gaal Dornick‘s escape pod brought her.

Here, she connects with the digital copy of Hari’s consciousness stored in the knife with which Raych had killed him.

Gaal learns that Hari had convinced Raych to kill him as he wanted to separate Gaal and Raych for the welfare of the Foundation.

His plan went wrong because of Gaal’s ability to look into the future.

Having sensed that Hari was in danger, she appeared at his quarters just as Raych was killing him.

It led Raych to place her in the escape pod and himself face execution by Hari’s followers.

Hari’s plan was just the opposite. He meant Raych to escape from the ship and Gaal to run the Foundation after his death.
