A busload of vampires comes to Purgatory to celebrate the resurrection of Bulshar, and runs into Sheriff Nedley’s speed trap. (They aren’t pulled over. They just stop in front of the Sheriff’s cruiser.) Nedley (Greg Lawson) quickly falls prey to their glamour spell and invites them into town. Did the Sheriff’s invitation give them free entry into every building in Purgatory, or just the Ghost River Triangle? (No one else grants them permission to enter, but they do.) What would have happened if Nedley hadn’t spent the night searching for speeders on the highway? Without Nedley’s invitation, would the bus have been unable to enter the Triangle?
Waverly and Nicole
The vampires kill sixteen people at Pussy Willows as the club was preparing to open. The way the bodies are laid out (and the runes carved in some of them) triggers a memory in Deputy Haught (Kat Barrell). She tells Wynonna: “Black Badge Division’s been tracking these massacres since the 1920s. They call it the Cult of Bulshar.” This makes Wynonna immediately suspicious, and Nicole continues: “It’s not like that. When I first heard the name Bulshar — when Faux Mercedes said it right before you shot the widows — it twigged something in me, like I’d heard it before. So I asked Dolls, and he gave me some old BBD files.” Later, Nicole begins to suspect that she might have once been involved with the Cult and suppressed the memory. 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.
Kate Corbett as Lady in Ana Valine’s film ONCE THERE WAS A WINTER
Kate Corbett (Stacey in three episodes of LG Season 5) is Lady in the thriller ONCE THERE WAS A WINTER, a film about a young biology student (Corbett) who finds herself trapped in a double-wide trailer with a hunter, a welder, a plumber, and a cabinet full of guns, and learns the hard way about surviving in the Canadian north. Writer/director Ana Valine told Dana Gee of the Vancouver Sun that while writing the script, she drew on her own memories of landing in the midst of a very male world and needing to change the way she presented herself. “In my late 20s I worked up on the pipeline in northern Alberta,”, Valine said. “I had heard of a few situations and had some tense nights myself. It sat with me for years and years, and I basically let my imagination go with it and I wrote it in three weekends…I was the only female on the crew up there. You are in a very masculine world. It’s no place to sort of assert feminism and still be safe. So you have to kind of roll with a lot of it.” A trailer is available. Filmed fifteen miles outside of Dawson Creek, ONCE THERE WAS A WINTER will next screen at the Vancouver International Film Festival on 6 October at at 4:30pm. Continue reading →
