Even though Summer couldn’t make it to the Ottawa Comic Con, she joined the Firefly panel via Skype. From what we’ve heard from the panel, it looks like “cat burglar are responsible” for her missing passport. Hopefully we can get a few more impressions from the panel later on.
Update: Summer didn’t join the panel for the whole time, but apologized several times for not being able to make it to the convention.
Just got back from the con! What happened was that Summer had been planning to attend the Firefly panel with Jewel and Nathan early in the day. Obviously she couldn’t — but she skyped partway through the panel and talked via audio for a few minutes. She attributed her passport’s disappearance to a cat burglar. “I have to get a new one,” she added, and then Nathan and Jewel said, with “duh” voices, “Yeah, you do.” The tone was delightful and light and pleasant, and it ended with Nathan saying “Suuummmmeeer!” in the style of the blooper real “Summer!” exclamation, and Summer seeming to be just the right annoyed/embarrassed/pleased mixture. It was a good panel. (Also saw Felicia Day and Nicholas Brendon’s panels today, both of which were enjoyable. I think James Marsters is tomorrow — but I only went for today; I’d seen JM in the past at any rate….)
