It all starts with Robin (Justin Kelly) finding a bleeding tree along with clothes partly buried in the snow nearby. He calls it a “murder tree” and doesn’t explain further. Robin doesn’t notice, but the tree seems to have someone trapped inside it. (Is he hiding in there, or is he imprisoned?) Robin is a jazz historian working as a forest ranger and later in the episode Waverly will fix him up with Jeremy (Varun Saranga). But before that, Waverly asks Nicole if she’s gotten rid of Bulshar’s ring yet. She says she hasn’t. Then, once Waverly is out of sight, Nicole tosses the ring into the woods, just to be done with it.
The Shelterlands music festival massacre, at which everyone but Nicole died, happened in 1996, and Nicole remembers being already down by the river when the attack happened, and escaping in a canoe. Since Nicole was six years old at the time, it seems likely that someone who knew the attack was about to happen made a point of rescuing her. It might have been Michelle, or Ward Earp, or Bobo Del Rey, or someone else entirely. The question is, why, out of the entire crowd, was Nicole singled out to be the only survivor?
This is the second mention of a canoe on the show this season. A couple of episodes ago, we learned that Wynonna lost her virginity in one. Continue reading →
Nicole (Kat Barrell) explains to Waverly that, when she was “just a kid”, her aunt and uncle allowed her to attend a concert in the Ghost River Triangle. While she was there, the crowd was attacked by the same demon that died (?) in that fireball with Dolls, and Nicole was the only survivor. Waverly calls the demon “Bondage Bob”, probably because he wore leather. Young Nicole made her way down to the river and was rescued by someone, but she does not remember who. Since Nicole grew up somewhere in the vicinity of the Triangle, are her relatives still living in the area? Continue reading →
Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Waverly Earp) stars as Grace, Kiana Madeira (Poppy in W.E. episode 2.6) will be Amy, and Varun Saranga (Jeremy) will play Gavin in the SyFy original movie NEVERKNOCK, about an urban legend that turns out to be true. (Legend was that, in 1986, three teens were brutally murdered after knocking on the door of 59 Oakwood Lane, and the killer was never found. For forty years, kids were warned to never knock on the door of that house for fear of what might answer. Grace and her friends fail to heed those warnings.) Also in the cast are Jodelle Ferland of DARK MATTER, and Eliana Jones (who was teenage Tamsin on LOST GIRL). NEVERKNOCK will air on SyFy (US) on 15 October at 9pm. Continue reading →
