Our Thoughts About The Expanse Finale

We procrastinated a lot before writing our thoughts about the last two episodes of The Expanse because it’s always so hard to put an end to an adventure.

 

We know Elizabeth will find another great role to play very soon, but in the meantime we will miss her on our screens. Furthermore it’s always hard to say goodbye to her characters because she makes us love them all.

 

What we like the most about The Expanse season 3 finale is the dynamic between Anna and Amos and the one between Anna and Clarissa.

 

The thing we find even more fascinating is the two different Annas we get to see in those scenes. Elizabeth decided to make her character very open in Amos’ presence, she doesn’t hide her feelings to him, while we see a very cold Anna, far away from sympathetic, when she is with Clarissa.

 

This choice is exquisite and the reactions we see in the other two characters are beautiful.

Amos is immediately attracted/intrigued by her, while Clarissa is angry, but at the same time she gets hurt by Anna’s words.

The Expanse Season 3 Finale | Another Review

We found another review about the finale and this is the part about Anna. 🙂

[…]Though Amos thinks they should just shoot snarling prisoner Clarissa Mao—who’s been outfitted with a chemical restraint that curtails her super-strength—Anna won’t let him, and it’s not because she expects a cold-hearted murderer to appreciate her mercy. “It’s not about her,” she tells him. “It’s about us.” Later, she explains she really did want Amos to kill Clarissa, but stopped him out of vanity. Anna doesn’t want to have to think of herself as someone capable of seeking vengeance, even though nobody would blame her if she did.

The Expanse Season 3 Finale Review

When you get such a powerful actress, it’s obvious that everything is going to change, because she’s gonna make you feel like you have needed her since the beginning!

Here’s another review about Anna:

Rev Anna delivers one. It isn’t a stirring speech, you won’t leave feeling inspired. What you do get from the conversation Anna has with Melba is a glimpse into two women struggling with their own sides of the same rage. Their powerlessness, their lack of understanding of the way the universe works, is overwhelming. Anna at first tries to make excuses for Melba’s behavior, but there is no easy answer, and Melba doesn’t want to give one.

Anna has to embrace her own call for vengeance. Despite her status as a minister, she has no sympathy or love for Melba. Realizing her own unlovability, and perhaps that she doesn’t care, Melba cries silently. Why, she asks, didn’t Anna let Amos kill her? Because in spite of it all, maybe because of it all, Anna doesn’t want Melba to get off easy. And jail, a trial, a showing on television that her famous father will see…that’s the best punishment there is. Rev Anna is a real one, fosho.

After your regularly scheduled Amos Quote of the Show, (“You want me to feel bad, I don’t. And I never will.”) Rev. Anna convinces Monica to help. They need to shut the ships down, and the only person who can reach everyone at once is her. Off they go to the relay station, stolen guns in hand.

Monica and Alex work to uplink the techie blah blah, leaving Rev Anna and Amos time for more chat. She begrudgingly admits that what they’re doing is something worth killing for, but that she’s not happy about it. They talk about revenge, hate, unfinished business — every scene with Anna brings a tender humanity to the show that is fantastic. I didn’t realize we needed some light in here until she brought it. She’s an asset just as impactful as Ashford’s menacing privateer.

[…]Everyone else brings in a stellar last 2 hours of television here — Rev Anna’s faith, Melba’s nihilism, Amos’ deadpan brutality, Drummer and Bobbie and Alex and Ashford and…there were moments when the season faltered, but here at the end, all the threads really came together.

What a close!

The Expanse Season Finale Review

Elizabeth_Mitchell_The_Expanse_3x13_02.JPGHere’s another nice review. We so love that relationship with Amos as well and all the scenes with Melba were terrific as well.

There was still a lot of good in these two episodes. Anna continues to be excellent, and giving her and Amos a chance to talk is an absolutely brilliant choice; the two characters play off each other wonderfully. I especially loved her explanation for why she does what she does, and I desperately wish we could’ve gotten more of her with Melba, as that was the closest I’ve ever come to finding that character interesting

[…]“Why do you do it?” “Because it needs to be done. I think that’s what most of my life is: seeing what needs to be done, and doing it.” “Mine too.” Please give us more Amos and Anna scenes in the future, thank you. (Although Anna should be heading home now, so that’s probably unlikely.)

The Expanse | Scene Of The Week – Anna & Amos

Elizabeth_Mitchell_The_Expanse_3x13_06.jpgWe found this article about The Expanse. They included the wonderful scene between Anna and Amos from the finale among their “scene of the week”. <3

A weekly characteristic by which we’re looking for essentially the most compelling, finest acted, written, directed and simply typically nice, memorable scenes that we have seen in previous seven days on TV.

THE EXPANSE, “Abaddon’s Gate”, June 27, 2018, Actors: Wes Chatham, Elizabeth Mitchell, The Scene: Anna lectures Amos
Kollin:
Anna lectures Amos on the burden of hate and the fallacies of being human – how we hate what we do not perceive. Amos, a pure born killer who simply occurs to be on the “good” aspect, by no means had anybody exterior of Naomi to information him, and on this certainly one of three scenes along with Anna, we see how a lot of an impact her knowledge and her human-ness has on him. The scene is capped off with Amos declaring to Anna that he would by no means let anybody damage her, which was simply such a spine-tingling second.

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 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.
