Sheriff Bishop is out of town for a psych evaluation that will determine whether he keeps his job. He will return to a lot of trouble. His wife Susan, unable to cope with the secretiveness of her family, relapsed and called her dealer (Glen, played by Christopher Rosamund), and later visited him in his motel room (to get a fix, not for sex) and somehow left her wedding ring there.
Maddy decided to help her mother retrieve the ring, and Ryn tagged along. Glen returned while Maddy was still in his room and decided to attack her. Ryn rescued Maddie, and killed Glen in the process. It was self-defense, but Ryn’s prints are probably still on file from when she tossed that other guy through a car windshield and it is doubtful that Acting Sheriff Staub (who did not appear in this episode) will be inclined to let her go again, even if Maddie explains the situation (unless someone explains mermaids to her).

Mimi’s stalker turns out to be Lieutenant Fuller (Matt O’Leary), who might be suffering from exposure to alien technology.
Mimi‘s stalker turns out to be Lieutenant Fuller (Matt O’Leary), the guy who chased a UFO with his plane in Episode One. He has been following Mimi in an effort to speak to her husband. Fuller is not a well man, and when Mimi does not humour him in his paranoia, he decides she is one of his enemies. Fortunately, Susie has been listening in through that bug she had planted. (The mike they installed was quite sensitive. It picks up Mimi’s kitchen conversation clearly, though it is located in the study.) Susie shows up with a gun and chases Fuller away. Her timely arrival makes Mimi a bit suspicious, but she decides not to question her rescuer’s motives, at least not very closely. Continue reading →
Ivory (Jennifer Cheon) about to be bitten by a Daywalker she thought she had killed.
Ivory (Jennifer Cheon) and Scab (Rowland Pidlubny) are still making their way back to The Sisterhood from the caves where the Van Helsing twins found The Elder. Weakened by hunger, they are rescued from predatory humans by some of Dr. Harrison’s modified vampires (called Daywalkers because they are unaffected by sunlight). These creatures show amazing ability to recover from injury. Ivory puts a steel rod through the brain of one of them, and a railway spike in the eye of another. Both recover from their injuries in a matter of minutes. The leader of the Daywalkers bites Ivory and transmits his healing power to her.
Scab prepares to be bitten (theraputically) by Ivory
Ivory similarly transmits the power to Scab as the two of them lie on the railway tracks in front of the tank car under which they had been trapped. The tank car has a white poison placard (number 2312), and the interesting thing about that is that Kim Stanley Robinson wrote a novel titled 2312 about a city on Mercury called Terminator that was built on tracks so it could always remain in the planet’s habitable zone. In the novel, a meteorite, which turns out to be of artificial origin, destroys the tracks, cooking the city in the heat of the sun. The presence of this placard could be meant to suggest that the volcanic event that caused VAN HELSING’s vampire apocalypse was intentionally triggered. Continue reading →
