Last night’s episode was very focused on the case, but Carine is so incredible. The way she helped that woman and her kids after her husband’s suicide is so moving. What a big heart she has! Very blessed Liz always gives us amazing female characters. We only have 3 episodes left and this is so depressing! 🙁
Anyway we added Crossing Lines’ clips with Liz from episode 3×03, 3×04 and 3×05. Enjoy! 🙂
3x03 - 3x04 - 3x05 - Carine Strand - Crossing Lines - Elizabeth Mitchell - Projects - Video
Crossing Lines 3×05 is the best episode so far.
Elizabeth was extremely amazing and looked like a Goddess, really. The way she portrays Carine is so compelling. This character is so strong. They revealed something about her past (won’t say what it is because not everyone has watched the episode yet) that makes her … quoting Marco: “you’re even more impressive than I thought.”
Things like that changes you forever and Carine’s lines make me cry.
I wanna quote her, but don’t read any further if you haven’t watched the episode yet.
Carine: “Marco, I didn’t tell you this to get your pity or your compassion. What happened, happened. I dealt with the rage and the pain a long time ago. I don’t let them define me.
You deal with your past or you get trapped by it.”
I’m really so impressed by this character, the strength and confidence Liz put into her. I’m so grateful to know all these messy and strong women she plays. Nobody else could play them so perfectly.
As Rola Bauer said, Liz has this combination of strength and softness and at the same time she’s very demanding and she conveys all this in her characters.
I don’t really like procedural shows, but when I knew about Liz in “Crossing Lines” I watched the first two seasons and I felt that the show was different from other series. The characters are so important, they are what make a show appealing to me and so often they are hidden behind the episodic plots. “Crossing Lines” is not the case. I don’t like to watch shows where the main characters are not involved personally in the cases and it looks like they are delivering lines as if they are reading the phonebook. Although I believe Liz could read a phonebook and still looks very charming. 😛
I just wanna say that I’m happy about this show.
About the relationship between Carine and Marco… their chemistry is not only amazing, is so much more… the mutual respect and admiration are charismatic. Even though Carine is his superior, they talk to each other as friends. When she tells him that he’s doing the wrong thing, she doesn’t do that because she is her boss, but because she cares about him and about the cases. Carine really wants all the good people to win and feels that as a personal success. Justice is very important to her. She is very warm and supports everyone. Love that!

These are 4 amazing stills from the upcoming episode of “Crossing Lines” (3×05). Enjoy! 🙂
Julian Ridderhoff’s murder spree is beyond cruel: His victims have a bomb tied around their necks and are blown up. In court, however, he cannot be tied to the murders. Finally, someone else is blown up and this time it is Ridderhoff himself. Because there have been cases before where a murderer was killed with their own methods, it seems to be an act of revenge…
After a knife fight in Croatia, a man dies. The victim, who turns out to be a member of a criminal organisation, was suffering from a highly contagious disease which spreads similar to ebola and always ends deadly. Shortly before his death, he was in a fight with Nigel St. Clair, whose son was kidnapped by the organisation. During the fight he infected Nigel. Now the team has to find him and other people who might have been infected as soon as possible.
