Our Thoughts About The Expanse 3×07

As we expected, there is a total change of scenario for Anna.

It’s been some time since the events happened in the last episode and now she is on the Thomas Prince (U.N. Navy warship) as part of a delegation to investigate The Ring. She was sent there by Avarsarala, who has become Secretary General, after Errinwright’s arrest, and Sorrento-Gillis resignation.

Anna wonders if the protomolecule ring is some kind of life-form, but the person she is talking to believes that it’s actually technology created by some very intelligent (but hopefully inert) people out there.

The impression that Elizabeth gives here is that Anna listens to his opinion, but that doesn’t mean she believes he’s right. She’ll keep investigating The Ring even if she’s conflicted because her wife sent her a message saying that she’s worried about their long distance relationship and the danger to be in the proximity of the protomolecule.

The two scenes with Liz were very very short, but the importance of Anna being there is essential to what’s happening on the show. We are sure that Anna’s intelligence and her constant determination to do the right thing for everyone will help in more than one way.

Best lines

We love the fact that despite being worried about the situation, Anna keeps having her sharp tongue.

  • “I came here in a spaceship not in the wings of an angel. I’m able to appreciate the difference.”
  • “We are friends, now… you know?” when she suggestes to ask for Mars’ opinion.

PS: Touching Elizabeth’s eyebrows is a crime. PLEASE DON’T!

    Hahaha guys, you cracked me up with the eyebrow thing, I didn’t even noticed until now ! xD

    I absolutely love her comebacks, and how she firmly, yet very rightly, shut down any comment about her faith, letting immediately people know that her beliefs don’t make her naive or impervious to science in that world where sciences seem more important than ever.

    To be honest, I’m very thankful for that character, because I’ve always been a little bit hostile towards religions, and I work hard to be as open minded as I can about that, since being a science teacher often confronts me to my students religious beliefs and I want to be as neutral as possible with them. I have no intention to be that person who tries to shake them out of their beliefs with bold scientific evidences. I think people probably believe because they need to, and trying to talk them out of it is pointless and could be hurtful for them.

    But even though it’s not my intention, and even though I wish it wasn’t the case, there’s a part of me that just cringe whenever I’m confronted to religion or religious people.

    But Anna, the character, or the way Elizabeth plays her, or both, actually helps me a lot with that ! I can’t believe it ! She just fulfils a little miracle by pacifying the difficult connection between religion and I. 🙂

    Amen. ;D lol
