Three Reasons Why The Expanse’s Third Season Was Its Best Yet

Elizabeth_Mitchell_The_Expanse_3x11_03.jpgIo9 posted this article about three reasons why The Expanse’s third season was its best yet.

They also added a photo of Anna with this caption.:

Anna, the quiet badass.

It made us smile!

Our 2 reasons: Elizabeth Mitchell and her character! 😛 Anyway this is the part about Anna:

2) It introduced some intriguing and valuable new characters…
In the first half of season three, Anna Volovodov (Elizabeth Mitchell) witnessed first-hand the corruption that sparked Earth’s war with Mars, and she helped an exiled Avasarala expose the truth and bring a tenuous new peace to the system. In the second half, she joined the UN delegation that entered the Ring, where her unique strengths (including being a hell of a great speechmaker) played a very important role when it came time to save the human race. Anna’s a Methodist pastor, but she’s spiritual without being preachy—and somehow manages to be both gentle and badass. What’s more, while The Expanse has always been diverse, the show’s nonchalant portrayal of Anna’s loving relationship with her wife back on Earth was particularly refreshing. She happens to be gay, and that’s no big deal, the way it should be.

Far more traditionally villainous was Clarissa Mao (Nadine Nicole), whose laser-beam pursuit of James Holden (Steven Strait) created a lot of collateral damage, and not just innocent deaths: Her sabotage set the events in motion that forced the Roci to flee through the Ring in the first place. Eventually—and it took a lot, including a slap in the face from Anna, the kindest person in outer space—she realized how much she’d fucked up, and aligned her agenda, and her artificially-enhanced superstrength, with the good guys in the nick of time.

The Expanse Season 3 Finale | More Reviews

This review is awesome even more because it’s by IGN (they didn’t cover the show).

We love the dynamic between Anna and Amos so much, we really hope to see that explored in season 4, even though the role of Anna is not included in the 4th book and we understand Anna has a family to go back to at some point and they’ve been waiting for her for so long, but yet we hope there’s a chance to see more of Anna in the 4th season (and with the main cast).

The Expanse has always had a rich cast of characters, but the addition of Reverand Anna Volovodov (Mitchell) in Season 3 made the show even better, especially her relationship with Amos (Wes Chatham). Chatham has done a wonderful job of being the show’s comic relief, but since Naomi (Dominique Tipper) fell in love with Holden and left the Roci crew midway through the season, Amos lost a counterpart to bounce his craziness off of. With Anna, who had a great scene with Amos during a shootout in the finale about the value of human life and morality, Amos now has that dynamic equal to contend with. Chatham and Mitchell are both talented actors, so pairing them together in an almost mother/son dynamic was a great move by the writers. Hopefully, Season 4 will develop their relationship even further.

The comments in this one are only about Anna, but it’s very nice!

The Expanse | Anna Hopkins About Liz

We’ve noticed the little comment on ig by Anna Hopkins + the hearts posted by Cas Anvar and Dominique Tipper.

Matt Mitovich (editor in chief at TV Line, always so nice to Liz since Lost) wrote “We love Liz <3 <3 <3” and Anna wrote “me toooo”.

We must say this cast was so lovely to Liz, basically almost everyone said at least a nice thing.

The Expanse Season 3 Finale | Podcast

Wow that was finally a good podcast!!! 

In the first part (apparently there will be a second podcast) to discuss the episode there were only the two hosts (not also books’ writers as usual).

It was a very nice analysis of Anna and there were some sincere compliments about Elizabeth’s performances, which we adore!

At the end there’s an interview with two actors (Steven & Wes) of the show and there was also a comment about Anna.

You can listen to the entire part about Liz and her character in the clip below.

The Expanse Season 3 Finale | Reviews

The first review says nice things about Liz and the second one is more an analysis of her character, but interesting. 🙂

Over the second half of this season there has also been an increase in the emotional depth of many characters, and there has been a lot of excellent character moments, giving great insight. This is exemplified by the brilliance of Elizabeth Mitchell as Anna, who has portrayed the pain and conflict of her character, alongside her drive to care and minister to all. Over this episode we see a growing connection with Amos (Wes Chatham), who is essentially closed off emotionally, yet she seems to be able to have some kind of dialogue with him, unlike many others.

Anna’s conflict is typified by her reaction to Clarissa/Melba (Nadine Nicole), as they have her subdued in the Rocinante med bay. On one hand she is angry at her, but also still wants to give her Mercy. Like Elizabeth Mitchell, Nadine Nicole has been a stand out in this second half of the season, and she has some great scenes in this episode.
