Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Waverly Earp) stars as Grace, Kiana Madeira (Poppy in W.E. episode 2.6) will be Amy, and Varun Saranga (Jeremy) will play Gavin in the SyFy original movie NEVERKNOCK, about an urban legend that turns out to be true. (Legend was that, in 1986, three teens were brutally murdered after knocking on the door of 59 Oakwood Lane, and the killer was never found. For forty years, kids were warned to never knock on the door of that house for fear of what might answer. Grace and her friends fail to heed those warnings.) Also in the cast are Jodelle Ferland of DARK MATTER, and Eliana Jones (who was teenage Tamsin on LOST GIRL). NEVERKNOCK will air on SyFy (US) on 15 October at 9pm. Continue reading →
WAVERLY:“So you think this world is under a spell? What, like Narnia, or Mar-a-Lago?”
Wynonna Earp disappeared at the end of the previous episode, the result of a spell cast by the Iron Witch (Rachel Ancheril). In this episode, the witch tells Waverly that what was cast is a “cheap glamour spell”. (A glamour spell is a sort of mass hypnosis that causes people to react to things in a specific way. There is no physical alteration of appearances.) If what the witch says is true, people in Purgatory who are under the influence of the spell are seeing the same things they usually see; they’re just interpreting what they see differently. Doc and Dolls never actually got shot, and that barn never exploded.
Bobo, the Widows, and Sheriff Clootie (those touched by the demonic, as the Iron Witch puts it) were unaffected by the spell, so the things they do actually happen. (Demons and revenants don’t accomplish much in this episode beyond breaking the third seal and waking up the long-entombed Clootie.) Continue reading →
