Martin Roach as Avasarala-friendly Admiral Souther, and Natalie Lisinska AS Shaffer. (Lisinska was Aynsley Norris in Season One of ORPHAN BLACK, and Collette in the LOST GIRL episode “The Mourning After“.)
Jules-Pierre Mao (François Chau) notices that Dr. Strickland is a mad scientist and tells him to stop his experiments. It seems unlikely that Strickland will give up so easily, and Mao must know that. Mao might succeed in saving the remaining five children with the help of Holden’s newly reinforced crew (once they arrive on Io), but Strickland might infect one or more of the remaining children with the protomolecule before he can be stopped. It is uncertain how Mao will react to Avasarala.
Under the influence of Sadavir Errinwright (Shawn Doyle), the Secretary-General blows up some Martian military stuff, and, in return, the Martians blow up a city in South America (Goias Maior, at the tip of Amazonia, probably near where São Paolo is now). It seems likely that there will be further Martian retaliation. Avasarala wakes up on the Rocinante, and is surprised that no one is enthusiastic about helping her. Continue reading →
(also Morgan Kelly, Maxime Savaria, Kimberly-Sue Murray)
Morgan Kelly as Bruce Lippe in the psychological thriller BLOOD HONEY. The film is currently available on VOD in Canada, and will be released in the US on 1 February.
Morgan Kelly (Alvis Akari) and Kimberly-Sue Murray (Louella Simms) star as Elle and Tyler in the made-for-TV thriller TWISTED, about Kara (Elisabeth Harnois), who has spent months getting her boyfriend Tyler back on his feet after a turbulent time in his life. The two are planning to marry and everything is perfect until Tyler’s ex, Elle, returns from rehab and wants her old boyfriend back. Elle is sexy, outspoken, and daring (and Kara is none of those things). What starts off as one woman’s desire to hold on to her fiancé turns into a twisted game of cat and mouse, as Kara tries to survive Elle’s jealous wrath. Written by Barbara Kymlicka (who wrote TINY HOUSE OF TERROR), and directed by Philippe Gagnon, TWISTED began filming in Montreal in October. There is no word yet on when it will air.
Kelly will also be a character named Manusco in Episodes 3.3 and 3.5 of THE EXPANSE. No information is available on Manusco, but another character, Katoa Merton (Jaeden Noel), who will also appear in both those episodes, is a friend of Prax’s daughter Mei-Meng. Both Katoa and Mei were being treated by Dr. Strickland for Myers-Skelton Premature Immunosenescence on Ganymede, and the two are assumed to have been kidnapped by the doctor, and subjected to the influence of the protomolecule. One might speculate that Manusco will somehow help Prax locate Dr. Strickland and his experimental subjects. Continue reading →
DARK MATTER – Season 3 Episodes 11 & 12 – SPOILERS
Three (Anthony Lemke) contemplates an interface between two universes
Aliens from a nearly dead nearby universe who feed on entropy want to move into this one. Dwarf Star is building bodies for them, so they can infiltrate human society and take over the galaxy. The Android Liberation Front has included a message in the latest system upgrade urging androids everywhere to overthrow the anthroparchy and take over the galaxy, the very thing that Ferrous Corp. is trying to accomplish for itself by waging war with all the other corporations.
The aliens communicate who and what they are to Three (who was previously possessed by one of them), and Three‘s unconscious mind pictures the alien initially as Five, then as The Android, Two, and Six. Alien-Five tells him: “Your mind is too primitive to grasp what we are, too frightened of the truth, so it seeks the comfort of familiar images.” (Jodelle Ferland is really scarily great as alien-Five.)
