The Expanse 3×02 Review

We found a nice review about The Expanse 3×02 and this is the part about Anna and Elizabeth:

We spend most of our time on Earth seeing things through Anna’s eyes, and she’s an immediate, and welcome, addition to the cast. Part of this is because it’s a relief to have someone who’s not a corrupt asshole facing off against Errinwright (not that Esteban is necessarily as much of a monster as Errinwright is, but he’s compromised at the very least); the first time we see Anna, she’s intervening in a near riot and insisting that protester get his broken arm treated. It’s always possible that her principles will serve as an obstacle later on, but for now, it’s just good to see someone who actually believes in being a decent, caring human being.

The other reason Anna is so welcome is Elizabeth Mitchell. Mitchell’s obvious warmth and intelligence helped make her turn as Juliet so indelible on Lost—that she can be idealistic but never come across as foolish or predictable is a great gift, and she fits right in with the cast as it currently stands.

The author of this review also wrote a nice message on twitter:

Had completely forgotten Elizabeth Mitchell was on this season of The Expanse, and am _very_ happy to see her.

We just want to say that the fans of the show are giving a nice welcome and a very positive reaction to the introduction of Anna and especially to Elizabeth, which makes us really happy, because this woman deserves all the love the world is capable to give her. <3

The first episode got 0.653 with 0.21 (18-49 demo).

Generally shows like this on channel like SYFY don’t have huge audience, so don’t get surprised by these data. The average of last season was 0.562 viwers with 0.18 (18-49 demo) if you were wondering.

They don’t mention Anna in the plot of the upcoming episodes, but we know for sure she’s in the 4rd one because the 2 photos already released.

Our Thoughts About The Expanse 3×02

When we watch things with Liz (we do that together, commenting via skype since we live in different cities) we always tend to say: “Ohhh that’s so Liz!” every time one of her characters shows a characteristic of Elizabeth’s personality. Some roles have more of hers than others.

When the sides in common are the warmth and the gentleness (which are innate in Liz), that could flow into 2 different results: you can trust that character, or you can feel that she is too good to be true and must have a second agenda. (We’ll get back to the second option later).
Anna is genuinely a good person since she is clearly somewhere she doesn’t want to be, but she’s willing to stay in order to get help for those who need. She can’t stop the war anyway.

She will probably never own a weapon, but her mouth is armed and she won’t stop saying what she thinks. “You’ll get used to it!”

In every single scene she shares with those whose morals are clearly not on the same page as hers.

Anna’s sharp tongue, nervous/fake smiles, and those quite silences where disappointment, disapproval and almost contempt surface through Liz’s eyes and every inch of her body, prove how outstanding Elizabeth is in those scenes. She completely nailed it. Look at how she drinks that wine. WOW!

We love how she shows her true feelings when nobody is actually watching her and the only moment where she is really herself is that scene with her family. No nervous smile, no silence that hides rage or concern… just Anna, freely speaking to someone who she actually trusts.

Elizabeth was able to convey effectively the differences between the Anna outside her comfort zone and the Anna inside it. And when they hanged up their call, Anna felt the solitude, not only physically speaking, but also the loneliness that you feel when you are in a place and with people who don’t belong with you.

It’s just a small moment, but her performance was so powerful even in that.

And we can’t forget to mention that part when Anna talks to her child, hugs the pillow and says “l-l-l-l-l-love”… was the sweetest thing ever! So Adorable!

We can’t wait to see more of what Elizabeth did with this character, Anna already won our hearts!

About that second agenda we were talking about before… yeah sorry we always make our marathons of Elizabeth’s past projects during “hiatus” so we both talked a lot about what we notice, you know?!

We think Liz is such a chameleon actress, she actually can do anything.

She can easily plays a truly good person or an ambiguous one where the ambiguity comes from the fact that sometimes you are not able to trust the sweetest smile ever. Warm and kind attitude in a fictional story often hide something dark. Or the character can do something morally wrong, but she is actually good and the sweetness is genuine anyway.

Elizabeth is a peach with those roles. In the end her characters always ends up to be good.

Liz, I once told you that you cannot play a bad person and you told me that your mother thinks the same. I think it’s not like you can’t. You surely did that in Running Scared and in that your sweetness was freaking scaring.

I’m sure your mom and I were just talking with our hearts, because of the feeling we have for you… but you can truly do anything.

You are able to shape your own personality and give life to totally different characters and your genius is that you can make it believable whether your role is totally good, ambiguous or really bad.

Now if you excuse us, we need to watch the episode again! 😀
