Genre fans love Summer Glau. From her role as the enigmatic River in Firefly to the cold, but somehow compassionate Cameron in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. But this Monday, August 22, we get to see her in one of her most exciting roles to date.
Summer appears as a rogue Alpha with a knack for making stuff out of anything at hand. A sort of super-MacGyver. But her stuff is much cooler than Richard Dean Anderson could ever imagine. And she has a past with Doctor Rosen’s team. Now she’s on the run, and it’s up to our team of Alpha heroes to bring her in.
Fans of Summer Glau will find this role, I believe, quite enjoyable. She’s not mentally unbalanced, coldly emotionless, one-dimensionally kick-ass, or even a psychotic genius this time. She’s just a brilliant and gifted woman on a mission. This episode is a roller-coaster ride from the start, so strap in and enjoy.
