Emmanuelle Vaugier (The Morrigan) stars as Agatha Sayers, a novelist whose daughter is kidnapped, in the TV movie KILLER ENDING. The abduction is carried out in a way that imitates the plot of Agatha’s latest book (which has not yet been published) and she begins to suspect that her recently hired assistant might be involved. Written and directed by Christie Will Wolf, and filmed in Langley, B.C., KILLER ENDING will premiere on Lifetime in the US Saturday 30 June at 8pm, and in Canada on Superchannel Friday 20 July at 9:05pm.
The Fluffball Foundation (an orgainization that supports animal rescue, founded by Vaugier in 2009) recently posted this on Instagram: “Emmanuelle’s birthday [23 June] is coming up, and we’re hoping you’ll help make it extra special! Give her the best gift ever by donating to the 2019 Fluffball, which will once again benefit Forgotten Horses Rescue. Donate $10 or more and we’ll give you a surprise gift in return!

Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) and Stacey (Kate Corbett) in front of the abandoned Valkyrie Academy
STACEY:“You’d think a portal to Valhalla would be hard to miss, but that’s what I said about genital warts.”
Linda Hamilton as Acacia in her teaching days Since her car is a 1955 Chevy, the scenes at The Valkyrie Academy most likely occurred in the mid-1950’s. Her car also appears to have a license plate from that era,
Evony (Emmanuelle Vaugier) is back, and dangerous as ever, though still human and quite vulnerable. With the help of Stacey (Kate Corbett) and Acacia (Linda Hamilton), Tamsin becomes aware of her own power, puts Acacia in charge of Valhalla when she could have had the position for herself, and goads Hades into showing his hand a bit. Once again, nobody tells Bo anything. Lauren and Tamsin tell her only what they absolutely must.
Tamsin’s new ride, a battered Dodge pickup truck from the 1980’s
Tamsin now has the Brísingamen, which Trick calls the “necklace of seduction”. She took it before she sent Freyja and Stacey to monitor Tartarus. (Well, she sent Frejya there. Stacey tagged along without being told.) In Norse myth, Freyja is the goddess of love and fertility (among other things) and the necklace, which she always wore, has power similar to that of Aphrodite’s girdle. In Greek mythology, Hephaestus made a girdle of finely wrought gold for his wife Aphrodite. The magic he wove into it’s filigree work made her irresistible, and caused the breakup of their marriage, just as the acquisition of the Brisingamen caused the split between Odin and Freyja (for slightly different reasons).
Tamsin and Stacey
With Frejya and Stacey in Tartarus, and Acacia in Valhalla, no one on earth knows that Tamsin has the necklace. Hephaestus turns up in next week’s episode, Judgement Fae, so it is possible that the necklace somehow becomes a problem.
Student Valkyrie Tamsin meets Acacia secretly at midnight. When using the power to cast doubt, the eyes of the valkyrie are darkened more stylishly than in past episodes.
Still upset at losing Bo, Tamsin has devised a plan to send Hades (Eric Roberts) back where he came from. She locates Stacey, who is unhappily working at a fast food joint, and all too pleased to join the mission. Acacia (Linda Hamilton) initially wants no part of Tamsin and Stacey’s adventure, but when the two head to the abandoned high school where they had been classmates, Acacia shows up to offer assistance. It turns out she was hiding Freyja there and wanted to keep them from finding out about that.
Tamsin and Stacey swear to keep Acacia’s participation in their plan secret, using different hand signs.
Tamsin and Stacey find Freyja in a closet and force her to reveal her secrets. It seems that she was hiding because others wanted her to send Hades back to Hel, and she did not want it known that she didn’t have the power to do that. Her necklace had never worked on Hades. He went to Tartarus voluntarily so that he could build an army under cover of darkness.
Tamsin and the cheque she received from Hades for finding Bo
Meanwhile, Evony’s test results are in, and she is very sick. So sick, in fact, that Lauren wonders aloud how she is still standing. Evony believes that her malady is the result of a curse that was placed on her while she was The Morrigan. The curse had no effect at the time, because she was so powerful, but once she became human, it took effect. Whether this is true or not (it seems like speculation on the part of Evony) it is bound to play on Lauren’s residual guilt about Nadia, her previous girlfriend who was cursed by The Ash into a five-year coma, and later killed by The Garuda.
In the best scene of the episode, Lauren and Bo are at the Dal discussing Hades (Jack). Evony joins them at the bar.

LAUREN: [to Bo] “Speaking of Jack, how are you feeling?” EVONY:“I love him. Finally someone was straight with me. I’m sick and I have to deal.” BO:“Evony, I’m impressed.” EVONY:“Well, luckily, I have the help of a very good doctor.” LAUREN: (after long hesitation) “Oh, you mean me?” EVONY:“God, I hate your false modesty. Yes, you, you moron. Now buy me a drink. We got this, right?” BO:“Yeah, I think we do.” EVONY: (raises glass) “To Doctor Lewis. My friend. And the only hope I’ve got.” LAUREN:“Evony, I swear to you, I will never give up on you.” EVONY:“I know. I mean, you’re still chasing the succubus. Talk about futile.”

Kate Corbett (Stacey) is Tammy in THE STEPS, which had its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on 14 September. The film is about New York siblings who travel to Canada to visit their father and meet his new wife, only to hear their parents announce that they’re adopting a child. Directed by Andrew Currie, the film mocks peculiar obsessions and bad habits on both sides of the Canada/US border. Naomi Snieckus (the talent agent in LOST GIRL episode 1.9) also appears in the film as a social worker named Ellen.
The movie A SUNDAY HORSE, with Linda Hamilton as Mrs.Walden will be an Official Selection in the Equus Film Festival in New York City, 19-22 November. Inspired by a true story, the film focuses on a determined rider from the wrong side of the tracks recovering from a near fatal accident. She attempts a comeback at the National Jumping Championship, on a horse the experts thought was nothing special.

Tamsin is a wise-cracking ambulant battery pack for Bo. They make a great team.

When the possessed body of Elizabeth Helms (Amanda Walsh) left the clinic at the end of last episode, the other two similarly affected bodies left as well. Dyson is investigating three unconnected killings that occurred about the same time. It takes him an amazingly long time to figure out that three missing corpses and three unexplained killings might be connected.
In a scenario probably arranged by Trick, Vex (Paul Amos) assists Trick in subduing would-be attackers behind the Dal, and then Trick puts Vex and Dyson together. Since Dyson hates Vex, this would make more sense if Trick had previous knowledg about Dyson’s son being in town and that Dyson’s finding that out would make him understand Vex’s relationship with Massimo.
Lauren is left holding the plug for Evony’s little Tank of Cthulhu
Last episode ended with a Fae unnecessarily killing a human. This one begins the same way. A hunter (Aaron Poole) is stalking Mark, a homeless and somewhat Kenzi-like fellow, about to take a bus out of town. The hunter fires an arrow through the bus window and kills Maggie (Michelle Mylett) in the next seat. The hunter does not take another shot. Later, in another location, the hunter tries to shoot Mark (?) again, and hits Bo in the shoulder. Once Bo is down, the hunter has a clear shot at Mark (Luke Bilyk) for several seconds. He does not take it. The arrow that hit Bo had a Fae tracking device attached that Lauren had to remove from Bo’s shoulder. Was it meant to track Bo, or Mark? And to what end?
Michelle Mylett as Maggie, the second attractive, innocent human victim in two episodes.
Bo is not hard to track. She is the one and only unaligned succubus. She hangs out at the Dal. Her address is on flyers for the detective agency. Apparently Mark is not hard to track, either, since he has been shot at twice in two different locations. Why the tracker?
Bo lures Hunter Guy to her place where Lauren hits him with tranquilizer darts. This time he is armed with a knife. We learn that Dyson is Mark’s dad, but before learning that, Bo sleeps with Mark, Once she finds out, she decides to keep this encounter secret from Dyson. She tells Tamsin, who promises to keep the secret, but Fae live a long time, and how long do you imagine it will be before Mark and his dad get drunk together and Mark lets something slip? Tamsin has been known to imbibe a bit herself and she and Dyson are buddies. If Bo really wants to keep this from Dyson, she might need to take Mark (and Tamsin) to see Dr. Snook from In Memoriam (LG 4.1).
Lauren has lunch with Evony (Emmanuelle Vaugier) to get her to sign for a new clinic security system, something no one apparently thought would be needed until nurse Lisa (Nadine Djoury) was killed. Sensing that Lauren might be up to something, the former leader of the Dark shows up at the clinic the next day with something that sounds (from her description) a bit like Cthulhu in a small tank. She points out how dangerous the thing is, and implies that it might be released should Lauren fail to find a way to restore Evony’s fae-ness.
At episode’s end, Dyson lines up the tattoos in the photos of the ritual killing victims and walks away too soon to realize that by doing so he has summoned something.

Evony (Emmanuelle Vaugier) rides dramatically into Season 5 of LOST GIRL on horseback
Scott Cavalheiro (Tad, the dude whose name keeps escaping Tamsin) is Johnny Dawson in THE SCAREHOUSE, a horror flick which had a December Toronto theatrical release. It won Best Feature at the 2014 New York City Horror Film Festival. The film centers on two friends who throw a Halloween party for their former sorority sisters, with revenge in mind.
Alan Catlin (the bus driver) will be Ari Schnurr in the film LET’S RAP. Meghan Heffern (Tabitha the suicide fae from Fae-de to Black) is also in the cast. It’s a comedy about a brother and sister (played by Rachel Wilson and Brendan Gall) who are quick-witted but incompetent aspiring talk show hosts. No definite release date yet.
