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.

10 Casting Decisions That Save Once Upon A Time

Elizabeth_Mitchell_OUAT_4x10_EMfc_003209.jpgElizabeth was included in this review about “10 Casting Decisions That Hurt Once Upon A Time And 10 that Saved It”.

Obviously Liz is among the ones who saved the show and what is even better is that she’s in the list with Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle, Rebecca Mader and Colin O’Donoghue who were actually part of the main cast.

What they wrote here makes us so happy! The Snow Queen was one of her finest performances. We are so proud of her and feel so lucky to be following such a mighty actress and beautiful human being!

Here’s the article:

9 Saved: Elizabeth Mitchell – Ingrid/The Snow Queen

Lost alumni Elizabeth Mitchell stuck with the familiar ABC network to  play The Snow Queen in the fourth season of OUAT.

Her villainy was superb, solely thanks to the actress’ conservative and mesmerizing performance.

While some didn’t love the Frozen angle the show took in the 2014 season, no one could argue that Ingrid’s character was a highlight of it.

Mitchell is so confident in her performance that she was able to shine through the underwhelminmg plot. Complexity is always something truly great villains possess, in character and in performance.

The casting of Mitchell truly gave the character everything she needed to become one of the most notable antagonists on the show.

So so so true!

Thanks so much Isa for sending this to our way!

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 | 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.

Every J.J. Abrams TV Show Ranked

We found this article about JJ Abrams’ shows. Obviously Lost is number one. Revolution is ten.

3x09 Stranger In A Strange Land Elizabeth Mitchell (3).jpg1. ‘Lost’ (2004 – 2010)
“Lost” definitely had some bad seasons, and people still want to flip tables over the series finale, but when it was good, it was SO. FREAKING. GOOD.

We love the line about Liz.

Elizabeth_Mitchell_Revolution_1x17_official_cap_4.jpg10. ‘Revolution’ (2012-2014)
A show you want to like more because of Elizabeth Mitchell, but you just can’t really get there. We get it, post-apocalyptic worlds were all the rage. But this just wasn’t about one we needed to see.

Source: msn

We love that people might not like a show, but they really like Elizabeth anyway. That says a lot about her talent! <3

You can’t help but always appreciate her performances. She makes you love all the characters she gives life to with such a profund intensity that when a show ends, you keep thinking about those women she has created and those will forever be a gift! Beautiful!
