The Story Behind the 'Mystery Meal' Photo Op with Summer

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Aug 14, 2013 / 1 COMMENTS

Each convention brings its fresh share of photo ops with Summer Glau. Since they're made directly at her signing booth, you don't always get top notch quality but each time it's an unforgettable moment for the fans who are lucky enough to meet Summer. For the fans who could not attend the convention, watching these photos is a way to participate to the event after all and makes you feel you belong to a community of fans.
Anyway, one of the first photos from the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con that surfaced online caught my attention; the picture shows Summer Glau and a fan, named Ant, holding cans with no labels. Ant looks as if something went wrong, while Summer has a funny, innocent expression on her face, see for yourself:

Summer Glau & Ant holding cans with no labels. River did it again!
I was intrigued and I must say that I didn't get the nod to a Whedon tv show at first sight (even if Ant’s Fruity Oaty bar t-shirt was an indication). It's only when Ant put me on the right trail that I was able to get the nod to a scene in Firefly episode four titled 'Shindig', when River Tam, experiencing another of her manic outbursts, frantically shreds the Blue Sun labels of the canned food supplies.  
As our member Cegorah said, this is a "Good, awesome, scary, spooky scene - all at the same time, just like so many scenes with River". Here's a gif from the scene:

Back to the story behind the photo op. In Ant's own words:
Summer's reaction was so adorable when I pitched her the idea. She was so willing to oblige.

Rehearsing the "Mystery Meal" Photo Op. I think she likes it!

But there's more to come. Ant has made more than 100 photos of his Summer Glau experience and agreed to share them with us, so stay tuned for more! A huge thank you to Ant (@Spidey_Ant) for his imagination and sense of humor.

As an aside, we have solved the mystery of the long lines at Summer's booth. Preparing the photo op must have taken quite some time tongue
