Hilary Jardine (Susan) will be Patty Beron, founder of the online community sfgirl.com, in VALLEY OF THE BOOM, a six part miniseries about the ’90s tech boom that will examine the culture of innovation and debauchery that led to the dotcom bubble. According to showrunner Matthew Carnahan, documentary elements will be used to help tell the true inside story. Carnahan told Deadline.com: “We wanted to make something as the people and the tech that came out of The Valley during this period, so this is a wild, hybridized, rule-breaking look at a truly remarkable time and place.” VALLEY OF THE BOOM will premiere on The National Geographic Channel on 1 November.
Vanessa has been having vivid dreams that are quite like visions. She has one of those about Susan, and in that dream, she and Susan seem to be lovers.

Doc (Rukiya Bernard) has made a new life for herself repairing the wounded after the attack on the Citadel. She meets Joline (Caroline Cave), a resistance fighter, and they are just about to get close when Callie (Macie Juiles), who was last seen in Episode 1.6, shows up and recognizes Doc.

Other things happen in the episode, but not that many. Atanasia is killed by a masked, sword-wielding assailant. Axel runs through the blood Doc steals for him more quickly than Doc expects. He will need to either feed, or be bitten by Vanessa very soon. (Doc and Axel don’t know where Vanessa is.) Mohammed keeps giving himself suicide missions to atone for previous sins, but he keeps surviving them. He is currently being protected by Flesh and Lucky. Continue reading →
