Death (Melanie Scrofano) introduces herself to Adam (Dylan Taylor) in a coffee shop
Unpublished novelist Adam (Dylan Taylor) tells his girlfriend Tracy (Meghan Heffern) that he plans to fix the plumbing while she is at work. She suggests that he finish his novel instead. Adam whines a bit about not being able to pay half the rent (something Tracy seems totally unconcerned about), and suggests that maybe it’s time to “let the dream die”. Then Tracy goes to work, and Adam heads to the local coffee shop to write. He is met there by Emma , who introduces herself as Death.
Dancing with Death.
Emma (Melanie Scrofano) tells Adam that his time on earth is up, but that he should be happy about it. After his demise (she explains), Tracy will get his novel published and it will become the greatest novel of all time. When Adam remains reluctant to die after learning this, Emma takes an instant liking to him. They spend the rest of the day together, as Emma tries to make sense of why Adam wants so badly to continue living. (Emma claims to only be able to predict what will happen after Adam’s death, and says that she sees what happens before he dies only as a series of choices. The implication is that his influence on the lives of others is made a fixed and immutable thing after his death, because Tracy will have no choice but to get Adam’s novel published.)

Tim Rozon (Doc Holliday) will be Cst. Carson Myers in DIGGSTOWN, a series created by Floyd Kane that follows Marcie Diggs (Vinessa Antoine), a corporate lawyer who readjusts her priorities after her aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system. Antoine told The Toronto Star`: “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system, and when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of colour, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.” Marcie and her legal aid associates work directly in the community to find justice for their clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias. Stacey Farber, (Dr. Sydney Katz on SAVING HOPE), is also in the cast, as is Natasha Henstridge (Sil in the 1995 film SPECIES). Lynne Stopkewich will direct two episodes. DIGGSTOWN will premiere on CBC Wednesday, 6 March at 8pm. Continue reading →
Bulshar’s ring makes Widow Mercedes (Dani Kind) into a healthy platinum blonde.
Both Rosita (Tamara Duarte) and Bobo decide (independently of one another) that revenants are never going to get a fair shake from Wynonna and the gang. Bobo tries to make a deal with the newly awakened Bulshar (the demon formerly known as Sheriff Clootie) to avoid spending the afterlife in hell, and Rosita, instead of assisting Wynonna in the birthing process, attacks Waverly and tries to steal the baby. The attempted baby-napping fails, and Rosita suffers no immediate consequences. (Perhaps the Earps feel a bit guilty about using Rosita as a guinea pig to create an antidote for widow poison.) Bobo (Michael Eklund) is impaled by Doc on something wooden. (Bobo’s telekenetic abilities only enable him to move metal objects.) He was then deposited at the bottom of the well where Doc had been imprisoned for a century. Holliday puts a wooden cover on the well to keep Bobo in, but what’s to prevent some of Bobo’s revenant friends from removing the cover and fishing him out of there? Continue reading →
