Mercedes Gardner (Dani Kind) turns up unexpectedly in Wynonna’s kitchen
The Garden where Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) and Doc (Tim Rozon) are trapped turns out to be a frozen wasteland. Doc finds Wynonna’s sister chained to a rock. The chains (she tells him) are tightening, and Doc discovers that this is because they are tied to a large, apparently organic mass which has been thrown down a well. Doc frees whatever it is from the well (he himself was freed from a similar hole in the ground some years previously) and takes the pressure off. There seems to be a general consensus that this strange unknown blob is significant. @EarperBex noted on Twitter (perhaps not entirely seriously): “…it reminds me of Beljoxa’s Eye from Buffy” (Beljoxa’s Eye appeared in Episode 7.11 of Buffy. It was a large, extra-dimensional creature with many eyes of many sizes. It could not see the future, only the truth of the present and the past.) @kko5572 speculated: “It looks like a gigantic version of the seeds that Bulshar was forcing down people’s throats in S3” and @gin_gasi suggested that it might be Jolene (the demon with a talent for baking played by Zoie Palmer in Episode 3.5, who was in the end absorbed by a tree).

Caspar Phillipson as newly elected Senator John F. Kennedy in the PROJECT BLUE BOOK episode “Broken Arrow“ .
Caspar Phillipson (John F Kennedy in “What Lies Beneath“) will be Embry in SHADOWS IN MY EYES, an account of the bombing of the French School in Copenhagen on 21 March 1945. Operation Carthage, an attack on Denmark’s Gestapo headquarters, went wrong when one of the bombers crashed near the school, causing the other pilots to believe that the school was the target. 104 people were killed. The film depicts the tragic attack from the point of view of the children, nuns and captured resistance fighters inside the school. Written and directed by Ole Borendal, SHADOWS IN MY EYES was filmed in Prague, and will be released in Denmark on 10 December.
Phillipson is also Tomas (Tomas Jonsson?) in ODD MAN RUSH, which stars Jack Mulhern as a hockey player who once was on the fast track to the NHL, but for various reasons ended up playing in Sweden’s minor professional leagues. Trevor Gretsky (son of Wayne) and Alexa Lemieu (daugher of Mario) are also in the cast, as is Hockey Hall of Famer Paul Stewart. Bill Keenan, who wrote the memoir on which the film is based, told U.S. Hockey Report: “The movie is like SLAPSHOT, though maybe more realistic. I’d say it’s a modern-day European version of SLAPSHOT…We’ll be submitting to film festivals. After that it’s kind of up to them [the producers] in how they choose to release it, either streaming or in theatres.”Continue reading →
Naomi Snieckus (Talent Agent in “Fae Day“) is Maria in the comedy WORK IT, which stars Sabrina Carpenter as Quinn Ackerman, a high school senior who learns that her admission to the college of her choice hangs on her performance at a dance competition. The problem is, she can’t dance, and is rejected by the school’s dance team. Her response is to assemble her own motley group of dancers to compete against the team that rejected her. Written by Alison Peck and directed by Laura Terruso, WORK IT will be on Netflix on 7 August. A trailer is available on YouTube.
Snieckus also hosts the FIRECRACKER DEPARTMENT PODCAST. In the latest episode (below), she interviews writer, producer, and director Kay Cannon (creator of the Netflix series GIRLBOSS). Currently, Cannon is writing and directing a reimagining of CINDERELLA.
