THE EXPANSE – Season 3 Episodes 12 & 13 – SPOILERS
Captain Chandra Lucas (Yanna McIntosh)
Science Officer Kolvoord of the Thomas Prince screws up. His data-gathering nuclear test explosion causes Ring Station to shift into planetary destruction mode. The test does, however, inadvertently succeed in getting Miller’s attention.

When the station begins to look threatening, the three Captains (Ashford, Lucas, and Kunis) decide that their only option is to destroy The Ring, forever cutting themselves off from home and protecting the solar system from attack.

After Tilly (Genelle Williams) explains to Anna Volovodov that Clarissa Mao (masquerading as Melba Koh) tried to kill her and wants to kill James Holden, Anna sets out in pursuit of the rogue technician.

Following the sudden deceleration of the Behemoth, Camina Drummer (Cara Gee) and Klaes Ashford (David Strathairn) are pinned against equipment in the machine elevator but no one knows they are there.

Anna is able to track Tilly electronically, but the Belter crew on the Behemoth cannot identify the locations of officers and crew. Has no one invented the equivalent of Star Trek’s combadge? No technological barrier seems to prevent its existence in The Expanse universe, but none of these devices has so far been visible. Continue reading →
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 SuperchannelFriday 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!
