Charlize Theron boards 'The Orville' as a guest star among the stars

Much as she did in A Million Ways to Die in the West, Charlize Theron played Seth MacFarlane’s love interest when she boarded The Orville as a guest star. Theron’s character, Capt. Pria Lavesque, was rescued by MacFarlane’s character, Capt. Ed Mercer — and it wasn’t long before the sparks started flying.

The two captains seemed to have the kind of romantic chemistry one can only find in the mostly empty cupboards of an elementary school science room.

Unfortunately, Capt. Ed should’ve swiped left, because it turns out Capt. Pria was keeping a big secret. She was actually a time traveler from 400 years in the future.

Pria was actually trying to steal the Orville and sell it in the future because she’s an antiquities dealer who specializes in ultra-rare goods.

Brokenhearted, Ed destroyed Pria’s time-traveling wormhole, and watched as their love literally faded.

The Orville airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Fox. Watch clips and full episodes of The Orville free on Yahoo View.
