Pree (Thom Alison), the only character whose appearance has changed drastically, is now head Killjoy in Old Town
Westerly has succumbed to a complex, shared delusion, designed to turn its population into a workforce to terraform the moon. An alien program has hijacked people’s brains, but only the cerebral cortex seems to be affected by it. The limbic system is still functioning normally. (Proof of this is that Gared and Pree are still in love, and Zeph still has a crush on Dutch.) This has been happening for forty-three days, according to Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) who is holed up on Arkyn with her son Jaq (Jaeden Noel). Kendry has retained her fighting skills, and uses them effectively against The Lady’s minions. (Johnny has lost such skills because his new personna has no need for them. He can’t even figure out how to fire the type of gun he once carried as a Killjoy.) Continue reading →
Hannah John-Kamen will be Dr. Sophie Hart in SAS: RED NOTICE, a film based on the 2012 novel by Andy McNab, about Sergeant Tom Buckingham (Sam Heughan), who plans to propose marriage once he and his girlfriend arrive in Paris. (Dr. Hart seems to be a re-named version of Dr. Delphine Prideux, Buckingham’s girlfriend in the book.) His plans are delayed when the train taking them from London to Paris is hijacked by The Black Swans, a group of mercenaries led by Laslo Antonov, whose plan is to blow up the Channel Tunnel. (Ruby Rose is a character named Grace, and one synopsis of the film says that the group seizing the train is let by someone called Grace Lewis.) Noel Clarke (DR.WHO’s Mickey Smith) is also in the cast. Filmed in London, Paris, and Budapest, SAS: RED NOTICE will be released by Sky Cinema in the UK sometime next year. Continue reading →
This hand-binding is part of the opening scene. Are Pree and Gared married now?
Dutch introduces the season finale poetically. “The universe has a memory,” she says. “That’s all time really is. Our whole life to hold in moments, the sweet and sour, the kisses and the scars, our beginnings and goodbyes, all written down in time. Recorded, so the universe will know we were here, so we won’t be forgotten. We are all made of memories.”
D’Avin buys Johnny a piece of land on Leith, 200 acres of RAC-owned ranch land with a little creek out back, complete with robot goats. (Johnny asks if there are goats, and D’Avin replies, “Johnny, they’re robot goats.”) The implication of that exchange is that real goats exist on Leith, although we have seen none of them. It does raise a question though. Exactly what would the purpose of a robot goat be? It will be interesting to find out what farming options are available for John. No livestock has ever been seen on the show, and the only visible crop has been hokk. Eating habits in The Quad are a mystery because we almost never see anybody eat anything on screen. There are peach trees on Leith (at least according to Sabine), but Johnny’s newly-acquired land did not seem to contain an orchard. Continue reading →
