Unfortunately we have some sad news. According to deadline, TNT will not pick up Scent of the Missing. They kept the pilot in contention and waited until more procedural pilots are done. It looks like they have now made their decision. That means there won’t be any more episodes and probably we will not see the pilot.
But gladly we can see Summer next in the second seasons of Alphas where she will reprise her role as Skylar Adams.

Tomorrow, the Legend of Hell’s Gate will be released on DVD. Just before this release Tanner Beard sat down with Star-Telegram and talked about the movie. He has some nice details about the production. Here is an excerpt:
[...]“When I met Summer Glau for the first time, she asked, ‘Where are you thinking about filming?’ I said our first couple of days would be in this little town near San Antonio she’d probably never heard of, a place called Boerne,” Beard says. “She looked at me and said, ‘You’re never going to believe this, but I’m from Boerne.’ And she ultimately showed me her old driver’s license to prove it. I guess it was fate.”
Truth be told, the real appeal for almost everyone involved, cast and crew alike, was the opportunity to make a Western.
“Summer told me, ‘I’ve always wanted to be in a Western.’[...]
There is a video from the Dallas Comic Con online that has a some great scenes from Summer’s autograph session, where she poses with probably the youngest fan. The scene starts at 2:24 and at the end you can see that Laura Vandervoort is visiting Summer at her booth.
Some screencaps from the video are also in the gallery.
A couple days before the DVD release of The Legend of Hell’s Gate, there is a nice interview with director, writer and co-star Tanner Beard on Henry’s Western Blog.
[...]Summer Glau is just so incredibly professional. She actually flew from Hawaii, from a movie set, went home for an hour, then drove back to L.A.X., got on a plane to San Antonio, had to drive all the way to set, straight into hair and make-up. She came out and caught us for the tail end of the day, when the Moon family is outside of their house, and we had just enough light that it looked Terrence Malik-y out there. I said, we’re going to go ahead and roll this one. She just dove right in, and really had no idea what the scene was.[...]
