Xander (Ian Verdun) has decided to fish no more, and takes a job bartending at The Anchor. (Nicole quit via text, leaving the bar shorthanded.) Xander doesn’t know exactly what he wants to do with his life, but he’s pretty sure fishing isn’t it. He likes to watch cooking shows, so food preparation could be where his true interests lie. (To start any other sort of new career would probably require him to leave Bristol Cove.) He wants nothing further to do with Nicole (understandably), but she keeps insisting that she cares about him. She will need to do something to demonstrate that.
Ryn uses her hands to somehow focus (?) her song on Ben’s mother to relieve her pain.
In “Being Human“, Ryn (Eline Powell) described merfolk burial customs. “When my people die,” she said, “family take body and swim. For a long time we hold on. We take body and bring to deep so no other animal can find it. We leave it in special place.” In this episode, we get to see the funeral rites for Sarge (Hugo Ateo), who died heroically saving the lives of several mermaids. His body is placed on a low platform (somehow constructed from the sea floor ooze) in a place illuminated by what looks like a combination of thermal vents and phosphorescent organisms. After the necklace Helen gave him is removed, the body is decorated with shells, and finally given enough of a push to make both the body and the platform sink into the sediment. Continue reading →
Hilary Jardine (Susan Jackson) will be Mildred in two episodes of the satirical comedy UPLOAD, a ten-episode series starring Andy Allo as Nora and Robbie Amell as Nathan. The show is set in a future where people can upload themselves into the afterlife of their choice. Nora works customer service for a high-end virtual reality environment. After Nathan is killed in the crash of his self-driving car, his girlfriend uploads him permanently into Nora’s virtual reality. Creator Greg Daniels told Danielle Turchiano of Variety: “Amazon is the perfect place to make UPLOAD, because of their strong creative team, and because it’s a company that could actually one day host a digital afterlife. If I get in good with them, I’m hoping for a big discount on my first thousand years.” UPLOAD is currently filming in Vancouver
Alone on the island for 23 days, Scarlett constructs an imaginary friend and names it Wilson. In Episode 4.10 of MOTIVE, Peregrym was Jessica Wilson. Jessica murdered her older sister.
After twenty-three days on the island, Scarlett, unable to build a functional raft, discovers an inflatable life raft under her bed and makes it to the mainland. Sometime previous to that (it is about 80 kilometers from Denver to Loveland so the travel time between the two is much shorter than 23 days), Phil (Vincent Gale) and Joline (Caroline Cave) escape the prison bus taking them to Loveland. An organized manhunt is launched to recapture the prisoners (though Denver has been attacked and occupied by The Sisterhood, and one would think the surviving humans there would have better things to do).
