Mercedes Gardner (Dani Kind) turns up unexpectedly in Wynonna’s kitchen
The Garden where Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) and Doc (Tim Rozon) are trapped turns out to be a frozen wasteland. Doc finds Wynonna’s sister chained to a rock. The chains (she tells him) are tightening, and Doc discovers that this is because they are tied to a large, apparently organic mass which has been thrown down a well. Doc frees whatever it is from the well (he himself was freed from a similar hole in the ground some years previously) and takes the pressure off. There seems to be a general consensus that this strange unknown blob is significant. @EarperBex noted on Twitter (perhaps not entirely seriously): “…it reminds me of Beljoxa’s Eye from Buffy” (Beljoxa’s Eye appeared in Episode 7.11 of Buffy. It was a large, extra-dimensional creature with many eyes of many sizes. It could not see the future, only the truth of the present and the past.) @kko5572 speculated: “It looks like a gigantic version of the seeds that Bulshar was forcing down people’s throats in S3” and @gin_gasi suggested that it might be Jolene (the demon with a talent for baking played by Zoie Palmer in Episode 3.5, who was in the end absorbed by a tree).

Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Waverly) will be the as-yet-unnamed seven-months-pregnant girlfriend of Dara’s ex-husband in LIKE A HOUSE ON FIRE. Sarah Sutherland stars as Dara, who returns home after a two year separation from her husband (played by Jared Abrahamson) in hopes of reconnecting with her family. But when she gets there, she finds that her husband is in a new relationship and her daughter doesn’t recognize her. Amanda Brugel (Rita in THE HANDMAID’S TALE) is also in the cast. Written and directed by Jesse Noah Klein, LIKE A HOUSE ON FIRE is currently filming in North Bay, Ontario, and should be released early next year.
Provost-Chalkley will also be Sue in SEASON OF LOVE, a light-hearted, queer women’s, romantic comedy with six main characters: Iris (Emily Goss), Mardou (Laur Allen), Lou (Jessica Clark), Kenna (Sandra Mae Frank), Janey (Janelle Marie), and Sue. The six of them deal with their love lives in loosely connected stories set between Christmas and New Years. Janey comes home from college for her cousin Iris’ wedding, and wouldn’t mind reconnecting with her long-time girlfriend Sue. But Sue, a musician who makes her living busking, is preoccupied with trying to find a way to pay her mother’s medical bills. Sue sings beautifully, but suffers from crippling anxiety that prevents her from singing in front of a large audience, so when a private video is leaked and becomes a viral sensation, she finds it difficult to cope. SEASON OF LOVE will be released in the US on 30 November. Continue reading →
Tim Rozon (Doc Holliday) will be Cst. Carson Myers in DIGGSTOWN, a series created by Floyd Kane that follows Marcie Diggs (Vinessa Antoine), a corporate lawyer who readjusts her priorities after her aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system. Antoine told The Toronto Star`: “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system, and when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of colour, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.” Marcie and her legal aid associates work directly in the community to find justice for their clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias. Stacey Farber, (Dr. Sydney Katz on SAVING HOPE), is also in the cast, as is Natasha Henstridge (Sil in the 1995 film SPECIES). Lynne Stopkewich will direct two episodes. DIGGSTOWN will premiere on CBC Wednesday, 6 March at 8pm. Continue reading →
