Foundation Season 2 premieres this Friday, and if we could tell you to watch this show for only one reason — we’d pick Salvor Hardin. And that’s not just picking the stereotypical hero, Gaal might be more that, or maybe Hari Seldon for some, and God knows there is a lot to be said for Lee Pace’s clothes or lack thereof. But in many ways, Foundation is Salvor’s story in the same way it is our story, in the only way it can be. And for that reason, we’d pick her. We always would.
This is why our favorite moment during the press junket for Season 2 was getting to talk to the actor that plays her, Leah Harvey, about the resolution to that big Season 1 cliffhanger, finding her footing in Season 2 and, of course, the eerie similarities between this show and reality.
