The Expanse 3×03 Review

The_Expanse_3x03_Elizabeth_Mitchell_review.jpgThis review is not flattering about how they wrote the episode, but it says that Elizabeth was good anyway. It’s for The Expanse 3×03.

Even if the reviews are not positive about the writing, they are always positive about her performance. It happens all the time with her. You cannot say that she is not great, because you would lie. 😀

While the Earth/Anna scenes were a highlight of “IFF,” they’re more pedestrian here. Last week, Anna got to be more than just the conscience of Secretary-General Sorrento-Gillis (understandably usually rendered as “S-G Esteban”). Here, she’s pretty much just the angel on his shoulder to Errinwright’s devil. So the war’s escalating, and Earth endures a nuclear strike with casualties in the millions, while Anna sees her influence with Esteban insufficient to keep him from making a disastrous mistake, and Errinwright smugs. “Table setting” is a term often used as a pejorative when discussing television episodes, but that’s what’s happening in this plot-line.

Last week it was done deftly and well, this week didn’t nail the landing quite so well. I suppose it was good character work for Mitchell’s Anna, but didn’t really tell us much that we didn’t know and weren’t able to guess before.

The Expanse 3×03: Another Review

We made this edit with the best lines from the 3rd episode’s reviews. 😛  And this is another review we found. 🙂 Everything people are saying is so true and so well deserved. <3

“Assured Destruction” escalates all of the conflicts while also providing plenty of suspense, smart dialogue, and great character moments

The third episode of The Expanse’s third season, “Assured Destruction,” doesn’t have nearly as much action as the first two episodes, but it certainly isn’t any less intense or suspenseful. The continued escalation of the conflict between Earth and Mars takes a much larger focus this week as Errinwright convinces the Secretary-General to launch a preemptive strike against Mars. Shawn Doyle, Jonathan Whittaker, and Elizabeth Mitchell as Errinwright, Sorrento-Gillis, and Anna, respectively, are all in top form and play off each other beautifully. Mitchell continues to be a great addition to the already highly talented and diverse cast.

[..]. Anna’s face leads me to infer she doesn’t trust him. Is she prepared for this battle of wits? I think so.

The Expanse 3×03 Reviews

We posted what we thought about the episode yesterday, but we just want to add that we love there’s one character on this show that does not think about herself or “her people” but she thinks about humanity and we are so happy that character is Anna. They couldn’t find a better actress to play her!

These a couple of reviews we found online:

Unfortunately, for Earth, the cost of his ambition is nearly 2 million lives, and somehow he still manages to come out on top. The arrival of Anna (Elizabeth Mitchell) may well end up helping the Sec. General, as she seems to see through Errinwright, or at least get an inkling that something is amiss, while Gillis doesn’t. Mitchell does a great job of being the voice of reason for Whittaker’s bumbling Gillis, while also displaying a little hint of despair at the impending disaster.

But that’s neither here nor there, bookishly; what is, is Anna. I wasn’t sure why they were bringing her in so much earlier (though I also wasn’t complaining). But the role she plays here is vital. She’s the counterweight to Errinwright’s slimy machinations and the SecGen’s ego-driven poor choices. How did this man climb to such political heights when all it takes to nudge him into destruction is one appeal to his legacy? Anna balances this: She believes in something other and better than male egos, and she believes there are right choices, right answers … and that her old friend (friend? colleague? professor?) is making the wrong ones.

I have faith in book-Anna, and I trust they won’t render her on the show as simply The One Good Person. But the scenes on Earth would be a lot flatter without her in them; she’s there to be horrified for us. And to let us appreciate Elizabeth Mitchell, of course.

Our Thoughts About The Expanse 3×03 And New Still

[SPOILERS in case you haven’t watched the episode yet]
There were only two scenes with Elizabeth in The Expanse 3×03 but Anna keeps surprising us with her pure heart and compassion. Liz makes that so believable that it really hurts.

We loved the part when she says “Us and them. How many of us? How many of them?” and clearly there is no us and them for her, but just lives. She only cares about people.

And the last scene with Errinwright that is trying to blame Anna for what happened is terrifying.

One of Elizabeth’s best skills is the ability to be react to someone else’s performance in a way most of the actors can’t even do when they are saying their own lines. She doesn’t even need to speak, her eyes, face, her whole body say what her character is feeling in that moment.

This last scene is a proof of that… and as E!Online once wrote:”Mitchell conveys more emotion with her eyes than most actresses get across in their whole careers.”

So true! <3

Oh this is the new photo posted by The Expanse writers account on twitter:

She’s gorgeous, heartbreaking but gorgeous! We cannot wait for the next episode!

NOTE: There’s no scene with Liz in the promo for the next episode.
