The Expanse | James S. A. Corey About Elizabeth

James S. A. Corey account (should be Ty Franck posting on that account) said that, in the scene between Anna and Amos in the last episode of The Expanse, the lines “because it needs to be done?” was Liz’s idea. 😀

Well… we all know she has an immense talent in everything that she does and having great ideas for her characters is not a surprise.

Her roles are all under her skin, you can see that by how deeply she goes into their heads and hearts. She knows them completely and at the same time she knows all the characters she has scenes with.

It’s a work that all the actors should do, but you don’t see it done often.

We have always liked that in Elizabeth. During interviews she’s always able to discuss also other actors’ roles. It’s necessary if you want to play someone accurately without missing any spot.

So that’s why it’s not a surprise she had the idea of “because it needs to be done?”, which implies that she understands Amos, since Anna understands him too.

Anyway this is what Ty Franck posted:

Now, to be fair, doing a callback to “because it needs to be done?” in this moment was in fact Elizabeth Mitchell’s idea. She has fantastic instincts.

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 3×13 Review

This is just a small comment about how great the scenes between Anna and Amos are.

Elizabeth_Mitchell_The_Expanse_3x13_01.JPGShe (Monica) has been broadcasting to all the ships giving them updates, so Amos (Was Chatham) and Alex (Car Anvar) persuade her to help, with some assistance from Anna (Elizabeth Mitchell). This gives us another great group of scenes between Amos and Anna, with there clearly being a bond developing. […]

It has also been used well in the plot, especially in the Anna/Amos dynamic, but also with Monica.

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.)
