Chandler’s mission comes to a head as he prepares the final part of his plan. President Michener ponders the fate of his presidency.
So far I’ve got 21 HQ photos from the panel, thanks to our friends at Michael-Fassbender.net and I will have some press room photos coming soon. I also capped one of the interviews Bridget did with more to come.
WonderCon has this description for the Last Ship panel:
The Last Ship returns to WonderCon for a first look at the upcoming season and a panel with producers and cast including Adam Baldwin, Bridget Regan, Travis Van Winkle, Marissa Neitling and Jocko Sims. Following the epic season two cliffhanger, the highly anticipated third season finds the crew of the Nathan James shifting their attention to Asia after President Michener hears rumblings that the Chinese leader, President Peng, has been hoarding the “Scott cure” instead of distributing it to the people in the region. Michener sends Chandler to a global summit to investigate this allegation, as well as rumors of a possible mutation of the original virus that has caused a fresh outbreak in Japan. If the mutation has occurred, and Asia has not been protected, the consequences for the world are dire. And with Rachel Scott shot in the season 2 finale and her fate as yet unknown, hope is in low supply. Panel attendees will be treated to never-before-seen footage and a revealing discussion led by TV Guide’s Rob Moynihan. All new episodes of The Last Ship air on TNT this summer.
The panel is Saturday March 26, 2016 11:00am – 12:00pm in Room 408AB so be sure to head there early as the room will fill up quick. No word yet on whether TNT will also do a signing for The Last Ship, so pay attention to TNT on Twitter for the WonderCon updates on that.
While Agent Carter ended its second season (and possibly series, we find out in May) tonight, some questions remained unanswered while many new ones came out of the episode. While we saw the last of Dottie after her escape, she was talked about in this new Hollywood Reporter interview with EP Michele Fazekas:
Dottie (Bridget Regan) is still out there. If/when the show returns, will she play a bigger part next season, possibly as the main villain?
Fazekas: We will put Bridget Regan in as many episodes as she wants to be in. She has like two other jobs. [Laughs] But I know she has said that she has now put it into her contract that she can work on Agent Carter whenever it fits into her schedule. So we will use her as much as we can. We love writing Dottie. She’s a character that you can put with any other character and it will be amazing.
When last we tuned into Agent Carter, the titular hero had been freshly impaled on a piece of rebar, leading her bleeding all over Sousa’s sofa. As a result, Peggy needs to find a fellow femme trained in espionage who can accompany Jarvis to a lavish gala where Whitney Frost will be in attendance.
Cue the return of Dottie Underwood, who’s as pleased as punch to see her gal pal Peggy come to her for a favor — especially one that will get her sprung from her SSR confines, for this Tuesday’s double-episode outing (ABC, 9/8c).
Bridget Regan spoke with TVLine about Dottie’s unexpected and “unpredictable” mission for the good guys, the Legend-ary lesson she learned about fighting in a dress and the new tricks up her sleeve on TNT’s The Last Ship.
TVLINE | Were your ears burning other day when Hayley Atwell sang to me your praises as a laser-focused, disciplined actor?
Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. Stop. Stop. I’d say the exact same thing about her. Hayley is a force. So strong.
TVLINE | Watching this week’s double-header, it struck me that Dottie is very, very funny. I mean, her sass level is at, like, 11.
Don’t you love the comedy this season, that it’s been turned up in general? But thank you. The thing is, it’s just play for her. In Season 1, she’s working for Fenhoff, she’s been told,agent-carter-fenhoff-dottie “Kill Peggy Carter,” so she was working, working, working. Now, Peggy busts her out of jail, so how fun is this going to be! This was a lot better than the Friday night she had planned. It’s all play. Play, play, play.
