No, Garrus and Liara were with me at the beam.
It was weird that Ash had such a prominent role in the extended cut for me, but it was kinda nice, I guess. After Shep and her had that falling out on Horizon, they never really regained their friendship, there always seemed to be some distance between them. It was kinda like they regained their friendship through death, if that makes any kind of sense.
Then my Shep ended up living and it ruined the moment.
