Our Thoughts About The Expanse 3×09

As we said the other day there were so many multi-layered emotions conveyed in Anna by that beautiful performances Elizabeth was able to pull off in The Expanse 3×09.

 

It’s the first time that we see Anna in seek of something only for herself and not for the benefit of everybody else. This makes the character more interesting also because her decision is in conflict with the fact that she’s choosing a dangerous path, a route far away from her family and not only physically speaking.

 

That doesn’t mean she doesn’t love her child or wife, it only means that Anna is not a saint or perfect, she’s human.

Our Thought About The Expanse 3×08

We got a few scenes with Elizabeth on The Expanse 3×08, but seriously wasn’t Anna awesome?

One of the appealing aspects of her character is the way she reacts every time someone mocks her for her belief. She always has a good comeback that makes the other person look stupid.

That is what happens (once again) with Chris Owen’s character. Anna bites quietly: “If we’re going to meet God as a bunch of angry fools, we should turn this ships around and go home.”
The way Elizabeth delivers that line – with that total calmness (in contrast with what she’s actually feeling inside, hearing conversations she doesn’t actually like) – makes it even more stinging and makes all the others in the room look like idiots compared to her.

When people are afraid of the unknown they generally try to drive out that fear deriding the object that makes them feel uncomfortable.

Religion is not an aspect that The Expanse dealt with in the past and that makes us think it’s not something well seen or considered by majority of the fictional characters, which is the reason of all the mockeries towards Anna. 

Although she is not presented like a stereotype of a religious figure. In spite of the fact that she’s actually a pastor, she’s more a spiritual rather than religious woman.

She doesn’t use the name of God to give her opinion or to make a choice about something. It’s more like she does that because it’s the right thing to do for humanity or for people involved in those circumstances.

And that is probably the best way to establish a connection with someone. We don’t mean that she does that on purpose, it’s just the way she is.

She’s so smart and sassy, but it’s not just that, Anna is the only one who is able to understand people, probably because she’s the only one who actually cares.

That is why she gets suspicious when she sees “Melba” and soon after that Anna realizes she is also a troubled soul.

Obviously Elizabeth embodies that Anna’s quality perfectly with her body language and her soft voice.

We really need to see how they will proceed between the two.

Our Thoughts About The Expanse 3×07

As we expected, there is a total change of scenario for Anna.

It’s been some time since the events happened in the last episode and now she is on the Thomas Prince (U.N. Navy warship) as part of a delegation to investigate The Ring. She was sent there by Avarsarala, who has become Secretary General, after Errinwright’s arrest, and Sorrento-Gillis resignation.

Anna wonders if the protomolecule ring is some kind of life-form, but the person she is talking to believes that it’s actually technology created by some very intelligent (but hopefully inert) people out there.

The impression that Elizabeth gives here is that Anna listens to his opinion, but that doesn’t mean she believes he’s right. She’ll keep investigating The Ring even if she’s conflicted because her wife sent her a message saying that she’s worried about their long distance relationship and the danger to be in the proximity of the protomolecule.

The two scenes with Liz were very very short, but the importance of Anna being there is essential to what’s happening on the show. We are sure that Anna’s intelligence and her constant determination to do the right thing for everyone will help in more than one way.

Best lines

We love the fact that despite being worried about the situation, Anna keeps having her sharp tongue.

  • “I came here in a spaceship not in the wings of an angel. I’m able to appreciate the difference.”
  • “We are friends, now… you know?” when she suggestes to ask for Mars’ opinion.

PS: Touching Elizabeth’s eyebrows is a crime. PLEASE DON’T!

Our Thoughts About The Expanse 3×06

The_Expanse_3x06_Elizabeth_MitchellThere were only a few scenes with Elizabeth on The Expanse 3×06 and they were really too short. Seriously they should use that talent in a more prominent way. We really hope they did that in the future episodes.

We heard an interview with an actress about how hard it is to manage a character for so many years while it is easier (according to her) to do it for just a couple of years.
We are not sure about that, you probably get bored to play the same role for too many years and it ends up not to be a challenge anymore because you know everything about that character.

What’s even harder is to sell a character having just a small amount of screen time. That’s exactly what Elizabeth is doing with Anna.

Every week we care more and more about her and we hope she’ll be able to save humanity.

It’s like Anna’s voice is our voice, so you get furious when she is angry or you get your hopes up, when she feels she’s succeeding to do the right thing and that right thing will have positive consequences.

Anna fights to see the man she thought Sorrento-Gillis could be, because his redemption for what he’s doing now could be also her redemption for what happened in the past when she trusted him and everything went wrong.

But she was wrong… Esteban was worse then she could possibly think and Errinwright was totally right about him. Imagine to believe in someone to do the right thing and get rid of the devil and then to find out that the real devil is still in the room.

Elizabeth conveys all these emotions of rage, sorrow, hope,  and we were especially impressed with the change from the proud happiness to horrifying disappointment in like two seconds.

We can’t wait to find out what Anna will do next!

The Purge: Election Year | New Stills & More

We found a never before seen still from The Purge: Election Year and an old one in a better quality version. <3

Elizabeth_Mitchell_The_Purge_Election_Year_08.jpg

This is not really something new, but they posted the article because the 4th movie is coming out. We hope the 3rd will still be the hightest grossing film in the saga after that. 😛

“The Purge: Election Year” starring Frank Grillo and Elizabeth Mitchell, became the highest grossing film in the series last summer, bringing in $118 million worldwide. It is unknown if previous cast members will return to the series.

Talking about Charlie Roan… I (Adry) use to make cake decorations for fun, so I thought why not trying something different and I thought make somethings of Liz and this is the doll I made for her character in The Purge. 😀 Liz is terrific in this movie and I chose this scene because in that very first moment we see her, I got how powerful Charlie could have been.

Our Thoughts About The Expanse 3×04

We got a few more scenes with Liz this week (they are never enough) and she shined in every single one of them with all sorts of emotions which prove once more her immense talent. <3

When Anna realizes her speech has been modified and all her words about seeing humanity as one people are now used against Mars to justify the war and to persist in that direction, she gets silently furious, horrified, disappointed and deeply sad.

They should have kept the camera only on her because the changes of expressions on Liz’s face during those moments are so brilliantly executed and they are what makes the scene so relevant in the story.

Sorrento-Gillis betrays Anna once again. There’s that exchange glances between the two when he decides to listen to the devil (Errinwright) on his other shoulder, instead of his conscience (Anna).

The entire purpose of Anna being there has been diverted by Errinwright in his favour, but now she understands who she is dealing with.

What we witness after that is one of the most badass moment ever. She confronts Esteban, she beautifully yells “YOU DONT GET TO SPEAK TO ME. NOT EVER AGAIN.” to Errinwright and succeeds to leave both men without a come back, because at this point she doesn’t even care.

The look in Elizabeth’s eyes and the firmness in her voice are so fierce and balance the positive passion in Anna’s speech before they twisted her words.

In the scene between Anna and her wife, we love how Elizabeth laughs through her tears and her timing while saying her lines is just perfection.  

The Reverend is ready to go back to her family because she feels she only made the things worse. She doesn’t want to get involved in the cold ambitions of the snakes at the U.N. anymore, but she received the message Avasarala wanted her to get and the situation with Errinwright is even worse than she thought.

That moment of realization was effectively acted with Anna literally losing physical straight in her body so much that she has to sit down.

We can’t wait to know how she will use those acquired information in the next upcoming episodes!

Our Thoughts About The Expanse 3×03 And New Still

[SPOILERS in case you haven’t watched the episode yet]
There were only two scenes with Elizabeth in The Expanse 3×03 but Anna keeps surprising us with her pure heart and compassion. Liz makes that so believable that it really hurts.

We loved the part when she says “Us and them. How many of us? How many of them?” and clearly there is no us and them for her, but just lives. She only cares about people.

And the last scene with Errinwright that is trying to blame Anna for what happened is terrifying.

One of Elizabeth’s best skills is the ability to be react to someone else’s performance in a way most of the actors can’t even do when they are saying their own lines. She doesn’t even need to speak, her eyes, face, her whole body say what her character is feeling in that moment.

This last scene is a proof of that… and as E!Online once wrote:”Mitchell conveys more emotion with her eyes than most actresses get across in their whole careers.”

So true! <3

Oh this is the new photo posted by The Expanse writers account on twitter:

She’s gorgeous, heartbreaking but gorgeous! We cannot wait for the next episode!

NOTE: There’s no scene with Liz in the promo for the next episode.
