Sigh. And Lana was doing so much better at the whole con thing. Well, it was nice while it lasted.
Ha, I got home to a bunch of asks like this. I watched the video and my eyes almost rolled out of my head.
The difference between this con and the last year’s worth of cons (where she’s been more low key) is that now the ratings are in for S7, and they are really bad. (Like in danger of ABC cutting the order bad.)
So picture any pandering she’s doing now (for example her and Bex kissing in their panel this morning) as if she’s drenched in flop sweat, singing for her supper. My guess is that at this point she would say anything to make her fans feel good enough to continue watching her on S7. There is no question which actor is most linked with this reboot, it’s her. She’s #1 on the call sheet. She’s the name. She’s the one still playing her original character. She’s got a lot on the line and it’s a hard sell getting them all to keep watching.
Gotta flirt and make them feel good about themselves! Maybe then they’ll stick around.
