Emmanuelle Vaugier (The Morrigan) stars as Agatha Sayers, a novelist whose daughter is kidnapped, in the TV movie KILLER ENDING. The abduction is carried out in a way that imitates the plot of Agatha’s latest book (which has not yet been published) and she begins to suspect that her recently hired assistant might be involved. Written and directed by Christie Will Wolf, and filmed in Langley, B.C., KILLER ENDING will premiere on Lifetime in the US Saturday 30 June at 8pm, and in Canada on SuperchannelFriday 20 July at 9:05pm.
The Fluffball Foundation (an orgainization that supports animal rescue, founded by Vaugier in 2009) recently posted this on Instagram: “Emmanuelle’s birthday [23 June] is coming up, and we’re hoping you’ll help make it extra special! Give her the best gift ever by donating to the 2019 Fluffball, which will once again benefit Forgotten Horses Rescue. Donate $10 or more and we’ll give you a surprise gift in return!

Anna Volovodov (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Science Officer Kolvoord (Chris Owens)
After the Thomas Prince passes through The Ring, Science Officer Kolvoord (Cris Owens) and Anna Volovodov (Elizabeth Mitchell) notice that Jung-Espinoza’s ship, an MCRN probe, as well as the torpedo that the belters fired at the Rocinante are now in orbit around Ring Station, equidistant from one another. (Their configuration looks like they are orbiting at Lagrange points.) Volovodov also notices a purple glow surrounding the orbiting objects and suggests: “Maybe the purple glow is like a cyst. When you get a splinter, your body builds around it, isolating it. Infections can develop cysts. Maybe it’s interpreting these objects as threats, and that’s how it isolates them.”
Nadine Nicole as Melba (aka Clarissa Mao)
The torpedo’s engine is still burning, the probe is still sending back data, and both of them are in stationary orbit. Kolvoord deduces from this that an object that exceeded the speed limit inside the ship would not be slowed. (What happens to the exhaust gasses from the torpedo’s engine? Do they accumulate inside the “cyst”?) Continue reading →
Holden (Steven Strait) gets impatient with Miller’s crime scene metaphors, and demands a clear explanation of what’s going on. “Oh,” says Miller, “so you wanna talk about the non-local quantum hologram, the phase-conjugate adaptive waves, resonating in micro-tubules in the brain which of course requires some closed timeline curves and Lorentzian manifold and — you catch up. I’ll wait.” Miller’s technobabble doesn’t make any sense to Holden, but it seems to contain a great many hints about the nature of consciousness. The theologically inclined (such as the Reverend Doctor Anna Volovodov) will find it fascinating. Continue reading →
