Love Death + Robots Season 3: Jai Courtney Plays Spencer!
Episode 8 of Netflix's animated series follows a Special Forces unit as they try to locate a group of hostages who have taken refuge in a secret cave.
When Coulthard and his Special Forces unit, which includes Spencer (Jai Courtney) and Harper, arrive at the cave, they engage in light banter to help them relax. The lighthearted moment, on the other hand, serves as a foreshadowing of the truly horrific events to come.
The squad then comes across a rotting soldier's body on the side of the road. Following that, the gang is attacked by a swarm of alien beings that resemble cockroaches. The soldiers try to retaliate, but they are overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of creatures.
As the creatures eat the troops, only Coulthard, Harper, and Spencer remain. While the survivors hunt for the failed mission and strive to complete it despite the difficulties, they come across a god's tomb.
The trio quickly understands that their purpose is doomed and that forces bigger than they could have anticipated are at work. As a result, the trio makes an attempt to exit the cave. However, the group is attacked by another swarm of aliens.
Spencer counteracts the attackers, allowing Coulthard and Harper to escape. The two return to the grave to discuss their position. However, before they can devise a strategy, the troops are startled by the voice of an extraterrestrial monster that has taken up residence in the cave's empty depths. In an attempt to break out from confinement, the creature attracts the troops to itself.
The character of Spencer is played by none other than Jai Courtney (@jaicourtney). He is an actor from Australia.
