Shamier Anderson and Asha Bromfield in Episode 1.2 of SLASHER. The entire series can now be streamed on Netflix.
Anderson will also be David Mack in LAbyrinth, a biographical crime thriller that follows an investigation into the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. Johnny Depp plays a disgraced LAPD detective who is unable to crack the case. and Forest Whitaker is a journalist who teams with him and sets them on a course directly against the L.A.P.D. Anderson’s character probably is David Anthony Mack, a former Los Angeles Police Department Rampart Division Community Resources officer who was one of those named in a 2007 wrongful death lawsuit filed against the City of Los Angeles by the estate of Notorious B.I.G. LAbyrinth will be released in the US on 7 May. Continue reading →
San Romwell tells Dutch: “Remember, not everyone has a happy ending, so be happy when you can.” Was he being prophetic about KILLJOYS characters? Pawter asks Johnny to find out what “afferent teleplasticity” means. (The Company is apparently developing this.) Turns out it refers to the disruption of thought patterns by directed EM radiation. Pawter also asserts that “holosex has its limits”. For a brief moment, Lucy (Tamsen McDonough) takes humanoid form.
One of the visions Romwell has while Dutch sings the song that was designed to charm a prince.
Dutch’s family once owned an entire moon at the edge of The J, but lost everything. The edge of a star cluster would be prime real estate, because from there, one can see the rest of the universe. From inside The J, the sky would be filled with clouds of gas and dust, and the closely packed stars of the cluster.
Another part of Romwell’s fantasy – growing old together
Dutch was sold to a harem, and entered in a competition to marry a handsome prince, but her father sent her a tutor (Khlyen), who trained her to kill (for what purpose we still don’t know). The sitara, that musical instrument that hangs on the wall of her cabin, was a gift from Khlyen. It has poison on its strings to which Dutch is immune, and the strings conveniently double as garrotte.
Romwell seems to have Level 6 powers, but is not full of the green goo (he bleeds red). In his youth, his home world was attacked by a ship that looked like it was grown rather than built and had the green stuff flowing through it. The ship belonged to people who are still conquering their way across The J. Romwell (Keon Alexander) is 423 years old, so it’s a cinch the folks who attacked his planet don’t have FTL capability, but, if the stuff in his collection came (as he claims) from all over the galaxy, someone must.
Tamsen McDonough, the voice of Lucy, makes her first physical appearance on the show as Fembot number one.
John (Aaron Ashmore) installs a rudimentary version of Lucy’s consciousness in one of the female droids, and Lucy uses the opportunity to kiss Johnny and fondle his beard. The droid is destroyed but fortunately Lucy is not. Later, spaceship Lucy welcomes Pawter on board for a tryst with Johnny. There has to be some way that, with Johnny’s technical abilities, his relationships with Lucy and Pawter could merge occasionally into a partially virtual threesome.
D’Avin mind-melds (accidentally) with the captive mossipede. These creatures exist, we are told, elsewhere in The J, and on at least one planet are used as guard animals. The meld seems to indicate that Mossy the mossipede is to some degree sentient. (After the meld, D’Avin says he’ll “never step on a bug again”.) Later, Johnny cuts the creature in half, knowing that both pieces will survive. Considering the creature’s apparent sentience, isn’t that some sort of animal abuse?
Sabine begins to bleed green
After dropping D’Avin in Old Town (they must have gotten another Old Town warrant from Bellus to enable them to do that), Dutch flies to Leith, where she hooks up with Alvis. Pawter also flies to Leith to hook up with Johnny. Almost all of that stuff happens off-screen. On screen, D’Avin brings Sabine the peaches she asked for (salvaged from Romwell’s ship). Next morning, D’Avin and Sabine have the most explicit sex of the series, but Sabine has a seizure (one is not quite sure what brings it on) in the middle of it, and begins hemorrhaging green goo. Eating the peach might have caused it, or the green stuff inside her might have been fleeing from D’Avin. (The seizure happened soon after penetration.) Sabine could be Level 6. If so, does having sex with D’Avin turn Level 6 people normal again?
R. D. Reid as Krampus on LOST GIRL (left) and as a beggar on KILLJOYS
On the same morning, Alvis, doubtless inspired by Dutch’s presence, wonders aloud if the Scarback religion was inspired by a fight against the Creatures of the Green Goo, and if the monks initially began to cut themselves to demonstrate that they bled red, and were not infected with the stuff.
Sierra Wooldridge and Erica Cox as Fembots
Sierra Wooldridge (fembot #2) will be Amanda Volz and Mayko Nguyen (Delle Seyah Kendry) is Detective Dyer in Andrew Niccol‘s psychological thriller ANON, a tale set in a near-future world in which private memories are recorded and crime almost ceases to exist. Against this backdrop, Sal (Clive Owen) stumbles onto a young woman (Amanda Seyfried) who appears to have subverted the system and disappeared as he tries to solve a string of unsolved murders that shouldn’t be possible. ANON began filming in Toronto last July, and should be in theatres sometime in 2017.
Keon Alexander as Rami Said in the TV series TYRANT, which airs Wednesdays at 10 on FX
Keon Alexander (San Romwell) will be Carlos in EUGENIA AND JOHN a film which tells the story of a young couple in their twenties struggling with life, social issues and their relationship in New York City. It is a story of young immigrants in the US stretching the limits society imposes on them and exploring their possibilities. EUGENIA AND JOHN was written and directed by Iranian filmmaker Hossein Keshavarz, (who also directed the award-winning 2010 film DOG SWEAT) and will be released in the US on 1 November.
