SIREN – Season 2 Episode 6 – SPOILERS
Katrina (Aylya Marzolf) captures Xander and locks him in the hold of his boat, but Ben comes to his rescue because Katrina failed to take Xander’s phone away from him. Nicole (Natalee Linez) arrives to meet Xander as scheduled at 3:30am just in time to see him rescued by Ben and hear Cami’s frustrated wail as they escape. Nicole returns home and compares Cami’s wail to the recorded cries of Donna as she was tortured by Decker.
After Xander’s escape, the enraged Katrina is lured to a place where she thinks Ryn will be alone and vulnerable, but instead, all of Ryn’s allies, both human and merfolk, show up to support her. Outnumbered, Katrina agrees to work together with Ryn and her supporters. (One wonders how trustworthy Katrina is in the long term.) Ben, fresh from a confrontation with his family over their involvement with Klesco Oil, has a plan to somehow disrupt and draw attention to the oil company’s operations. His plan, he tells Maddie, was inspired by the tactics used by an ecological action group to achieve a ban on drift nets.
Fortunately for Maddie and Ryn, Maddie’s father (Gil Birmingham) returns to Bristol Cove just in time to reset the crime scene in a way that makes the death of Susan’s dealer Glen look like an accident. Later, during her investigation at the motel, Marissa (Tammy Gillis) gives Dale a courtesy call.
MARISSA: “I wanted to give you a heads up. Initial recon ties this guy to Susan.”
DALE: “What sort of ties are we talking about?”
MARISSA: “Word has it they were living together in Port Angeles. I didn’t want it to wind up in the local papers without you knowing.”
DALE: “Who was this guy?”
MARISSA: “Name’s Glen Jenkins. This guy was trafficking a shit ton of illegal substances.”
MARISSA: “Hmmm what?”
DALE: “How many open cases do we have with local drug trafficking? They ain’t getting here by themselves. I think that our missing link just raised its ugly head. Before I was laid off, I was trying to find this big supplier they called The Chemist. Maybe that’s who your dead guy is. Might have something to do with Donnie’s homicide. I can’t be sure.”
MARISSA: “Maybe I’ll take another look at that file.”
**Donnie was the guy Ryn tossed through a car windshield in Season One. Susan (Garcelle Beauvais) had told Dale earlier about the extent of Glen’s drug distribution network, and about his nickname.
Dale, who previously said that he thought his wife was being divinely guided, has apparently abandoned that notion. He tells her that she can remain in Bristol Cove, but can no longer live with him.
Will Dale’s doctored crime scene hold up under scrutiny? Will he resume his duties as sheriff? What will become of Susan? And now that Nicole has identified at least one mermaid living in town, how will she use that information?
It seems as though Janine (Hannah Levien) and Calvin (Curtis Lum) are the only Bristol Cove couple actually having sex. (We have seen them interrupted twice so far, in “Interview With a Mermaid” and in this episode – both times by Xander.) Maddie and Ryn and Ben have verbalized their desire to have sex, but so far have not. While there are strong indications that Nicole and Xander have slept together, we have only indirect confirmation of that. Susan was away from her husband Dale for almost a year and lived with another man for eight months, but did not have sex with him. Helen (Rena Owen) has been smitten with Sarge (Hugo Ateo) since seeing him in his aquatic state, and Sarge seems attracted to her as well. Though Helen is pleased when Sarge decides to move in with her, she makes up a cot for him to sleep on.
**On 27 September 2018, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a new law phasing out the use of giant ocean fishing nets used to catch swordfish, but blamed for accidentally killing sea turtles, dolphins and other sea creatures. The bill requires the state to set up a program to buy back nets and fishing permits from commercial fishermen who work in the state’s drift gill net fishery. —- The Mercury News – 28 September 2018

Jaymee Mak (Goth checkout girl in “The Lure“) will be Mia in Episode 3 of the new TWILIGHT ZONE reboot titled “Nightmare at 30,000 feet”. (This episode corresponds to the original series episode “Nightmare at 20,000 feet” which starred a pre-Trek William Shatner and first aired on CBS 11 October 1963.) In the original episode, an airline passenger (Shatner), who has recently recovered from a nervous breakdown, looks out the window of the plane he’s traveling in and sees a creature on the wing, tampering with one of the engines. Every time someone else looks out the window, the creature hides. THE TWILIGHT ZONE will premiere on CBS All Access on 1 April. (Episode 3 will be available on 11 April.)
Heather Feeney (Beachcomber #3 in “Street Fight”) will be Catherine in the comedy feature ALL JOKING ASIDE, which will star Raylene Harewood as Charlene, a young stand-up comic who develops a close friendship with jaded former comedian Bob (Brian Markinson) after he heckles her off the stage at her very first open mic performance. Nikki Wallin (PEELERS) is also in the cast. Directed by Shannon Kohli, and set in New York City, ALL JOKING ASIDE began production in Vancouver in February, and should be released this fall.
