INTRUDERS – Season 1 Episode 3 – SPOILERS
The renegade man in black is named Richard Shepard (played by James Frain). It seems he was once hired by a group called The Nine (9 is the eternal number of human immortality in freemasonry) to kill an old guy named Marcus. Marcus bribed Richard into not killing him and Richard agreed to shepherd Marcus in his next incarnation. In the flashback that describes this transaction, Marcus implies that he has been around for a few thousand years.
Much of this episode is an extended scene between Amy (Mira Sorvino), who has been taken over by a former member of the Russian Tsar‘s police, and her husband Jack (John Simm), an ex-cop with anger issues. Jack, you see, can tell that Amy is a different person and that’s a good thing, because the audience must rely on his judgement in this matter. Sorvino is never required to show us the difference between Occupied Amy and Original Amy. It is as though Original Amy is irrelevant to the story, at least so far. Amy tells Jack: “All you need to know is that I would never leave you. You’re my shepherd.”
The word ‘shepherd’ gets used a lot in INTRUDERS, and it could be another masonic reference. To site only one example of its use by freemasons, a shepherd’s crook (accompanied by a cross) is the symbol of the International Order of the White Shrine of Jerusalem, a group open to Master Masons and their female relatives.
We haven’t been shown Original Madison either. Occupied Madison, however, is really scary and apparently very strong. She comments on a Mozart piece (Mozart was a Freemason) being played on Karen’s car radio, saying she played in the orchestra (what instrument we are not told) on the night of the composition’s introduction, which was 29 May 1791. Later, having deceived Karen (with whom she had hitched a ride to Seattle) into trusting her, little Madison beats Karen to death, apparently with her bare hands, in the women’s restroom of an I-5 rest stop.
Rukiya Bernard (Karen) is Janine Clarke in THAT BURNING FEELING, a romantic comedy that will premiere at the Vancouver International Film Festival on 29 September. The film stars John Cho as John Whitaker, a real estate agent who must inform all of his (many) recent sex partners that he has contracted a social disease. The film was nominated for a 2014 Canadian Comedy Award in the category Best Feature Film.
The first radio station Karen and Madison listened to (the one bemoaning the plight of fugitive Bill Anderson) was 650 AM, which must be CISL Vancouver. Madison switched to 730 AM which is playing Mozart. The only radio station in that area on that frequency is CHMJ Vancouver, which broadcasts only traffic reports.
