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 | Review

We found this positive review about the addition of Elizabeth to The Expanse.

We know they need to change a lot from the books, but they would be really fools if they didn’t ask her to be in season 4. Obviously if Liz wants to!

Elizabeth_Mitchell_The_Expanse_3x11_promotion_instagram.jpgElizabeth Mitchell brought a soulful quality to the season as Anna.

The back half of season three compressed almost the entirety of book three — also called Abbadon’s Gate — into seven episodes of television. (This is what I have ascertained. Again, I haven’t read the books.) That gave the episodes a slightly breathless quality, even when episode 11 of season three, titled “Fallen World,” paused just briefly enough to mourn a tragedy.

But that compression also allowed the series to bring in two big-name guest stars to play new characters who factored heavily into book three. With David Strathairn as Ashford, a former pirate who is now a respectable starship second-in-command, and Elizabeth Mitchell as the Methodist pastor Anna, the series had more star power than ever.

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.

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.
