Sam (Christopher Heyerdahl) wants to kill both Lily (Julie Lynn Mortensen) and Vanessa, but The Oracle steps in, and tells him he must leave one of them alive.

Tricia Helfer (Dracula in Season Four) will star in a CREEPSHOW episode titled “Lydia Layne’s Better Half”, based on a story by showrunner Greg Nicotero and John Harrison, and directed by Roxanne Benjamin. Lydia is a powerful woman who denies a promotion to her protégée and lover but fails to anticipate the fallout. The six episode series (each episode has two stories) is a TV revival of the 1982 horror anthology film of the same name. (Adrienne Barbeau who appeared in the original film, will also appear in the TV series, starring in an adaptation of Steven King’s short story “Grey Matter“.) CREEPSHOW completed production in Atlanta in April and will air on SHUDDER later this year.

Mohamed dies because to become an Elder, Sam had to kill the one that he loves to completely detach himself from humanity. Continue reading →
