Everything is far from peaceful People of Peace right now, and if star Jennifer Holland is to be believed, they’re about to get a lot worse.
According to many seasons of episode six, Peacemaker is framed by the police as a serial killer lunatic (which isn’t too far from the truth), his father is trying to kill him, and the alien butterflies launched their plan to infiltrate Earth. Not exactly dandy, right?
But, talk to Mashable before episode seven, Holland was asked how her character, Emilia Harcourt, would react when she discovered the truth about Leota Adebayo’s bloodline (she was secretly ARGUS eldest daughter Amanda Waller.)
Harcourt starts the season off as tough and antisocial but she considers her co-stars like friends at this point, so Holland hopes she’ll be deeply hurt by the secret by Leota.
“Oh, my gosh, I mean—yes, if Harcourt found out that Adebayo was working for Waller, that definitely wouldn’t go well,” Holland said. Because at this point she has no idea. She doesn’t know that Adebayo is Waller’s daughter. She just got out of the loop completely. And she really started building a friendship with Adebayo. I think she’s always been really hard on Adebayo because she initially viewed her as someone who shouldn’t be in the industry, someone who is against the industry. She doesn’t really trust her, don’t know how she got there.
As [Harcourt] begin to empathize with [Adebayo] and started to understand her a little bit, I think then she was just scared for her because she seemed like she couldn’t hack it. The way that she begins to build her relationship with Adebayo and with the team in general, it will be difficult if Harcourt ever finds out that she has been betrayed or lied to. I think it will hurt even more after she opens up the way she has. “
Adebayo had a lot to feel guilty about as it was. She previously planted a fake Peacemaker diary that drove him crazy watching her trailer, which butterfly-controlled police are now using to discredit him. She’s been struggling with her desire to impress her mother but remain her own person throughout the season, so she’ll have to make some tough decisions in episodes seven and eight. As for Harcourt, is she open enough to get closer to John Cena’s anti-hero?
