Megan Follows (Wynonna’s mom) is Diane in LIE EXPOSED, which stars Leslie Hope as Melanie, a happily married recovering alcoholic (sober for many years) who finds out from her doctor that she will die soon. Her reaction to the news is to leave her home (and her husband Frank) in Toronto and head for Los Angeles where she begins drinking again and meets a mysterious tintype photographer (Jeff Kober) who persuades her to pose for a series of erotic photographs, and helps her regain her sobriety. After she returns to Canada, Melanie and Frank (Bruce Greenwood) stage a surprise art show of the photos Melanie posed for in LA for their friends (none of whom know that Melanie is the photographer’s model) and the tintype images stimulate intense discussion. Directed by Jerry Ciccoritti and written by Jeff Kober, LIE EXPOSED will be in Canadian theatres on 6 March. A trailer is available on YouTube. Continue reading →
WYNONNA EARP – Season 3 Episodes 11 & 12 – SPOILERS
The touch of Waverly’s ring brings Charlie back from the dead. Later she touches him with the ring again and cures his amnesia. Charlie, it turns out, is actually Julian, so Wynonna inadvertently had sex with Waverly’s dad. (This is a bit like what happened in LOST GIRL Episode 5.2 with Bo and her step-mom Persephone.) After Charlie/Julian re-discovers himself, he takes the ring from Waverly’s finger and puts it on his own. Later, after he uses the ring to heal Nicole (she was stabbed by a beekeeper) he gives the ring back to Waverly because his own ability to use it was depleted. Charlie is later killed, and after that happens, Waverly puts the ring on Nicole’s finger in what seems to be a marriage proposal, but they are interrupted by Wynonna, and Nicole never gets to respond. That ring seems to always find Nicole. Continue reading →
WYNONNA EARP – Season 3 Episode 7 – SPOILERS
Wynonna has sex with Hottie McFireman, accidentally breaks a ceramic garden gnome (as well as a mirror), and semi-officially breaks up with Johnny Hank. (That’s what Michelle calls Doc.) Nicole, who is campaigning for sheriff after Nedley’s retirement announcement, finds she must somehow get the support of Bunny Loblaw (Jann Arden). Besides being xenophobic and homophobic, Bunny, who is Purgatory’s political boss, is allergic to cats, so Haught is not the favourite to win the job. Bunny thinks she wants Wynonna for sheriff because the Earps are one of the town’s original families, and because Wynonna is a “straight shooter”, who won’t lie to her about the more interesting happenings in the town.
The garden gnome and mirror come from Nedley’s secret closetfull of items infused with supernatural powers. Nedley kept his miniature Warehouse 13 secret from Dolls because he didn’t trust Black Badge. When broken, the ceramic gnome causes its mate (stored in a shed some distance from town) to come alive in human form. (He’s called “mountain man” in the credits.) The mountain man, dressed in a greatcoat and toque, chases Wynonna and Nicole into town demanding that one of them become his new wife. When the female gnome is re-assembled (by Waverly and Jeremy), the male gnome is appeased. He picks up his ceramic wife and leaves peacefully. There is no indication that he returns to a ceramic state, or that his wife takes a form similar to his, though presumably one or the other of those things must happen. Continue reading →
