Dylan (Hannah Cheramy) appears to Vanessa as though she had aged naturally since her death
On her way (presumably) to Renfield House to find the fourth Elder (and possibly The Dark One), Vanessa encounters The Oracle. We get to see the oracle up close in daylight and she has blood on her chin like a vampire might. (This brings back fond memories of Dmiitri and Rebecca, who had table manners.) Vanessa recognizes The Oracle as the same person who took her from the scene of the car crash that killed her foster parents, the Sewards. (One assumes that the Sewards were killed in the crash. We don’t know that for sure, but it was a head-on with a formidable-looking pickup truck and they haven’t been seen since.) Continue reading →
A new mermaid in town. Katrina (Aylya Marzolf) arrives in Bristol Cove with Donna and Levi. .
Ryn (and everyone else in town) attends Captain McClure’s wake at the The Anchor. Chris (Chad Rook) announces that he just can’t take it anymore and needs to leave town. He eyes Ryn suspiciously on the way out. Calvin and Janine have sex in the men’s room. Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) was planning to visit her father, but ends up staying with Xander (Ian Verdun), who is having difficulty coping with the news that Ryn is a mermaid and nobody told him. (Before Ben, Maddie dated Xander.) Helen (Rena Owen) tells Ben’s dad:“It’s a shame, isn’t it. Times like these, I wish there wasn’t so much water under our bridge. After all, you and I, we’re family.” We know that Helen is a mermaid. Just how closely are she and Ted Pownall related? Continue reading →
Decker finds Elaine, and mentions that he might have a cure for her paralysis
Aldon Decker (Ron Yuan), the navy guy pursuing Donna (Sibongile Mlambo), has been writing about the “theoretical probability of aquatic humanoids” since the 1990’s. But to come to the conclusion that stem cells from mermaids might cure paralysis in other species (including humans) he had to have known not only that mermaids exist, but also that they have the ability to transform into human-looking land dwellers. (If a mermaid can grow fins and a tail in less than a minute after re-entering the water, their stem cells might convey this regenerative power to others.) Continue reading →
