Damon (Kristian Bruun) shows Phoebe (Cara Gee) his Red Rover video presentation.
This is the story of Damon (Kristian Bruun), a Toronto geologist who lives in his ex’s basement and spends his spare time with a metal detector on the beach. (It is a nice beach and surprisingly there is almost never anyone else visible on it.) Later we will find out that he is on that beach looking for something specific, and he will find out the real reason he’s looking for it.
One evening, Phoebe (Cara Gee) goes walking on that same beach. (She is wearing a spacesuit costume because she is passing out flyers for a project called Red Rover, which sounds a lot like the now defunct Mars One initiative to send humans on a one-way trip to Mars. (For some reason, the Mars One website is still active.) Phoebe is an aspiring singer, and has been on this beach before, because after handing Damon a flyer, she asks him to look for her missing earring. Continue reading →
Anna Hopkins (Brinkley White in “Clear Eyes, Fae Hearts“) will be true-crime author Carly Travers in the made-for-TV movie ISLAND OF SHADOWS. Carly and her husband Kevin (Christopher Jacot) vacation at a historical mansion on Crawford Island. Kevin thinks it will help them reconnect, but Carly wants to research a puzzling, unsolved murder that happened on the island. Alex Paxton Beesley (Lola in “The Kenzi Scale“) is also in the cast. Paxton-Beesley’s stunt double is Amy Szoke, who doubles for Lauren Lee Smith on FRANKIE DRAKE MYSTERIES. Jen Georgopoulos is Hopkins’ stunt double in the film. (She also doubled for Trenna Keating on DEFIANCE.) Directed by Leo Scherman, ISLAND OF SHADOWS was filmed in and near Owen Sound, Ontario. No release date has been announced. Continue reading →
Pippin somehow survived the explosion that was thought to have killed him in Episode 4.9, and Zeph finds him in one of the four cocoons on The Lady’s ship. (Actually, Lucy locates him when she scans The Lady’s ship, but doesn’t ID him specifically at the time.) When Zeph is understandably quite suspicious of his resurrection, Pip tells her: “You could just relax, chill with all the science stuff for one minute, and celebrate with me, ’cause, yay, I’m not dead.” He might at the same time be admonishing viewers to put away scientific quibbles and just enjoy the happy endings.
