Benz’s character Sadie is said to be an outdoor artist, who occupies the country cabin next to Rob Lowe’s Captain Owen Strand.

“Sadie is here for this first adventure [of the ice storm hitting Austin], and she absolutely could come back at some point, “executive producer Tim Minear told the publication.” Owen and Sadie aren’t exactly a romantic couple, but two wonderful, self-confident people who find themselves in a moment of crisis.”

It is confirmed that Acker will appear in more than one episode, as she brings Catherine, the “accomplished” and “formidable” chief of staff to the governor of Texas.
