It all starts with Robin (Justin Kelly) finding a bleeding tree along with clothes partly buried in the snow nearby. He calls it a “murder tree” and doesn’t explain further. Robin doesn’t notice, but the tree seems to have someone trapped inside it. (Is he hiding in there, or is he imprisoned?) Robin is a jazz historian working as a forest ranger and later in the episode Waverly will fix him up with Jeremy (Varun Saranga). But before that, Waverly asks Nicole if she’s gotten rid of Bulshar’s ring yet. She says she hasn’t. Then, once Waverly is out of sight, Nicole tosses the ring into the woods, just to be done with it.
The Shelterlands music festival massacre, at which everyone but Nicole died, happened in 1996, and Nicole remembers being already down by the river when the attack happened, and escaping in a canoe. Since Nicole was six years old at the time, it seems likely that someone who knew the attack was about to happen made a point of rescuing her. It might have been Michelle, or Ward Earp, or Bobo Del Rey, or someone else entirely. The question is, why, out of the entire crowd, was Nicole singled out to be the only survivor?
This is the second mention of a canoe on the show this season. A couple of episodes ago, we learned that Wynonna lost her virginity in one. Continue reading →
Nicole (Kat Barrell) explains to Waverly that, when she was “just a kid”, her aunt and uncle allowed her to attend a concert in the Ghost River Triangle. While she was there, the crowd was attacked by the same demon that died (?) in that fireball with Dolls, and Nicole was the only survivor. Waverly calls the demon “Bondage Bob”, probably because he wore leather. Young Nicole made her way down to the river and was rescued by someone, but she does not remember who. Since Nicole grew up somewhere in the vicinity of the Triangle, are her relatives still living in the area? Continue reading →
Rachel Skarsten (Eliza in “Steel Bars and Stone Walls“) will be Charlotte Dumaine in the ABC drama pilot FOR LOVE, which will star Lex Scott Davis as Hope Castille, a journalist whose life is disrupted by a phone call from Charlie Lapree (Jon Ecker), her long-dead fiancé. (Five years previously, Lapree took a call while remodeling their apartment and shortly thereafter was found dead after a car accident.) Hope’s current boyfriend is Gabriel Dumaine (played by Ethan Peck – grandson of Gregory Peck). Gabriel wants to be mayor. His family is very powerful, and he is also very much in love with Hope and wants to marry her, even though doing that might put Hope in danger. (The Dumaine family is hiding some dangerous secrets.)
Behind the scenes of LOST GIRL
In her mother’s absence, Skarsten’s character Charlotte has been running the Dumaine empire, which maintains control over the magic users in New Orleans, and when Mother Dumaine returns, Charlotte’s position is threatened. It seems reasonable to speculate that Charlie Lapree might have been magically brought back to life to prevent Gabriel’s marriage. Filming of the pilot began in New Orleans on 10 March.
