After falling into an icy crevasse last week, Harry (Alan Tudyk), Asta (Sara Tomko), and D'Arcy (Alice Wetterlund) are in a whole mess of trouble. Even in mortal peril, Harry still knows how to expertly ruin the vibe when he insinuates that the ground crumbled because D'Arcy was too heavy. It's not really an insinuation, though — he just flat-out calls her fat. Luckily, Asta's father, Dan (Gary Farmer), notices that his daughter is missing and alerts Sheriff Thompson (Corey Reynolds) straight away.
Check out the teaser trailer for "End of the World As We Know It" below:
Despite D'Arcy's onscreen annoyance with Harry, Wetterlund actually has a very high opinion of Tudyk in real life.
"He has just done so much great work in his career, but to see him step into the role of leader and be at the mantle of a cast like this is great," the actress told SYFY WIRE prior to the show's premiere in January. "I feel like it gives me hope as an actor and he has such empathy. It’s really important for a leader in the center of a cast to have the kindness and patience alongside the professionalism that he has. I feel really safe acting with Alan. It’s easy, it’s fun, and I think it comes across."
