Fan fave Elizabeth Mitchell, who was nominated for a 2010 Emmy for her portrayal of Lost‘s tragic Juliet Burke and is now kicking lizard butt on ABC’s V, has been signed for a horrifying guest role on NBC’s Law & Order: SVU.
She’ll be starring alongside returning guest star Jeremy Irons, who appeared earlier this season as the colorful Dr. Cap Jackson. Elizabeth will play an unmarried piano teacher who was the last person to see one of her students alive.
While SVU has tackled some unsettling topics during its twelve seasons, this one may take the cake — and win Elizabeth her first Emmy. For the first time, the series will deal with a case in which a woman is suspected of sexually assaulting and murdering a child.
Because of the rarity of this offense, Dr. Jackson is called in to consult with Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Stabler (Christopher Meloni) because he has studied women who have committed this heinous type of crime. The shocking episode, titled “Totem”, is scheduled to air March 30.
So Lost/V fans, how do you feel about our little Miss Juliet engaging in something so horrifying? Excited to see this? Or would it forever cloud your image of Sawyer’s idyllic love?
Elizabeth Mitchell has claimed that the season finale of V does not seem like the end of the series.
Mitchell told Entertainment Weekly that the episode leaves several questions unanswered.
“I wouldn’t say that episode 10 is a series-ender by any stretch of the imagination,” she said. “It leaves you really ramping up for a big fight. It’s not a wrap-up, for sure.”
She continued: “I’ve always been a big fan for the 24 mentality, where at the end of every episode something great happens and then they’re onto something else.”
Rumors have suggested that V may not be renewed for a third season after ABC delayed its second run until midseason and cut the episode order.
The show airs on Tuesdays at 9/8c on ABC.
In the bowls of the ship, Anna demands that her mother tell her the source of human emotions so that she can eliminate it. Diana explains that the soul is the source of all emotions in humanity and it can not be destroyed, despite Anna’s vows. At Valerie’s funeral, her parents question whether Ryan has a soul when he can’t even cry for his lover. He seeks out guidance from Father Jack and tries to pray, but the more in touch with his feelings he becomes, the more Anna is able to reach him telepathically. On the ship, Anna has the baby sprayed with a human skin in order to further manipulate Ryan.
Former Lost star Elizabeth Mitchell admitted that she was frustrated by the first season of her new sci-fi TV show V. Mitchell, who played Juliet in Lost, plays cop Erica Evans in the sci-fi TV show reboot of the classic 80’S serial V and promised that the upcoming ten-part-run, which makes up season 2, will offer fans of the show “far more action” and some “sexy stuff”.In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Mitchell promised that V season 2 on ABC will be more satisfying for sci-fi geeks…
“If you were frustrated by the last season, which you probably were [and] I was, a little bit, I think that this [season] will be far more satisfying. There is far more of what you want in an alien invasion story, where the aliens are out to use us as food and take our technology and do everything bad you can think about.”
She added that the final three episodes of V season 1 are…
“a good indicator of where this season is headed. Instead of people sitting around talking, people were actually accomplishing things [in those episodes]. I wanted to be an action hero, not an exposition hero!”
She then denied that episode 10 of V season 2 is not a series finale like many people think it is and that actually, the way it is written kind of demands a V season 3…
“I wouldn’t say that episode 10 is a series-ender by any stretch of the imagination. It ends in such a way that you’d want to see a third season. It leaves you really ramping up for a big fight.”
Make sure you catch V on Tuesday nights on ABC.
If you’re old enough, you remember the original incarnations of V and V: The Final Battle. Me? I used to stay up late to watch them when they were re-run as a child. I was fascinated by the Visitors and when I learned ABC has rebooting the show, I was on-board for, at the very least, the beginning. Did I want to stay after that? Find out after the jump.
For those not old enough, or not nerd enough, to be familiar with the original V series, you needn’t worry as this series stands on its own legs. Planet Earth is in turmoil. We starve. We struggle. We fight. We repeat that pattern ad nauseum. You’re all too familiar with the drill. Imagine one day, you looked up to the sky and saw massive spaceships. It’s not you alone, either; it’s the whole world. My first thought, of course, would be “oh expletive!” because I’ve seen enough science fiction, but now imagine that a very pretty, and very human looking face, assures you that these newcomers are “Of peace… always.” Add to that an offer of cures and technologies to raise us up from our daily struggles. Sounds too good to be true, right? A small group of people start to peel back the layers and find the cold, reptilian heart beating beneath. Season One of V tracks the arrival of the Visitors and the formation and first steps of defiance of the resistance.
