VAN HELSING – Season 4 Episode 11 – SPOILERS
Violet (Keeya King) and Ivory (Jennifer Cheon Garcia Warn) go to the place they believe Hansen is being held to free him from captivity, and stumble into an opportunity. Michaela is in the process of undergoing what Ivory calls a Setite ritual to remove her heart and store it in a safe place to prevent herself from being staked.
**Setites are followers of the Egyptian god Set (aka Suetekh), and outside of fiction (e.g. The Adrian Trilogy by Lyn Gibson and several tabletop and video games) there is no known connection between Set and vampires.
Once Michaela’s heart is removed, Violet and Ivory attack, and defeat Michaela and her minions in short order. (A stake through the heart apparently disables vampires but does not kill them. Violet stakes Michaela’s boxed heart and it causes her to stop fighting, making it easy for Ivory to behead her.) 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
Jardine is also Katie Saunders in MORNING SHOW MYSTERIES: A MURDER IN MIND, the third in a series of films based on the series of novels by Today Show host Al Roker. In this one, Cookbook author Billie Blessings (Holly Robinson Peete) is drawn into a murder investigation when her friend Katie becomes a suspect after the police discover the victim was blackmailing her. Written by Amber Benson, A MURDER IN MIND will next air on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries on Sunday, 28 April at 5pm. Continue reading →
