After contriving her own reawakening, Zeph wakes Turin (Patrick Garrow) and Pree (Thom Allison). Between the three of them, they locate a hidden nest of Black Root ships being used to seed the clouds of Westerley with mind-wipe chemicals, and blow up about a third of them in an attempt to slow down the terraforming process. This makes The Lady aware that the rebellion is bigger than Dutch and the Jaqobis brothers. (The hidden airfield is located at latitude 43.7 and longitude 79.13 on Westerley. On Earth, 43.7 North and 79.13 West is a spot very close to Toronto.)
Meanwhile, Dutch and the boys fail to escape from what turns out to be a prison ship. Their escape attempt impresses the Warden (played by Rachael Ancheril, who also plays twin witches on WYNONNA EARP). The Warden enlists their aid to stop an assassination, which they manage to do in short order, despite being outed as Killjoys to the prison population.
Would-be assassin Calvert (Anastasia Phillips) offering D’Avin advice on how to survive the prison psych ward is the best scene of the episode. (Phillips was also Vera Burr in the 2012 Global TV series BOMB GIRLS.) Continue reading →
Kalinka Petrie (Brynn in “Necropolis Now“) will be Jeanne in the horror/comedy LA MALÉDICTION DE JONATHAN PLOURDE, the story of a 23 year-old designer who falls in love four times only to have each of his lovers die suddenly. Convinced that he is cursed, Jonathan (Félix-Antoine Duval) is determined to give up on romance, until a new employee named Jeanne enters his life. With the help of a co-worker who is well-schooled in unexplained phenomena, Jonathan tries to figure out how to have Jeanne in his life without putting her in danger. Petrie told Karine Paradis of Envedette: “The most interesting thing about Jeanne’s character is that she’s the only one who does not know about Jonathan’s supernatural angle…so it was really interesting to play that, because she tries to find rational explanations, real explanations, to explain Jonathan’s bizarre behavior.” LA MALÉDICTION DE JONATHAN PLOURDE premiered on the Canadian French language network Super Écran on 12 November. Episode 4, in which Jonathan has a difficult and emotional discussion with his mother and takes part in a dangerous rebirth session, will air on 3 December at 9pm. A trailer is available on Vimeo.

The only time Brynn smiles is when Aneela says to Gander: “I’ve literally had your guts for garters, which, sadly, wasn’t as flattering as either of us might have hoped.”
Zeph tells Dutch that her DNA is Aneela’s chiral opposite, meaning that while they are genetically nearly the same, Dutch’s DNA spirals in the opposite direction. Zeph says this is “not supposed to be possible”. (DNA is a chiral molecule, and normally twists to the right. A mutation whose DNA was left-handed would not be able to reproduce.) Dutch won’t be able to have children with anyone whose DNA spiral doesn’t twist in the same way hers does. The really odd thing is that the rest of the compounds that make up Dutch’s body have normal chirality, because she is able to digest the same foods as everyone else.
Aneela locates Kendry, who is pregnant with something green, but otherwise all right. Kendry, Aneela, and Brynn decide that Gander, who was responsible for Kendry’s pregnancy, should not have free will anymore, so they turn him into a slave Hullen. Continue reading →
