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).

Clark Backo (Shae in “I See a Darkness“) stars as Lily Green in the made-for-TV romance LOVE AT LOOK LODGE. Lily, who dreams of being a successful hotel event coordinator, is given the chance to do just that by helping a guest (Noah, played by Jonathan Keltz) plan his sister’s wedding. Lily soon realizes that Noah, a workaholic, has no real interest in the project, and is planning the wedding out of a sense of duty. Determined to make the event a success, Lily spends more and more time with Noah, encouraging him to live in the moment and be more supportive of his sister’s big day. In the process, the two begin to develop feelings for one another. A trailer is available on YouTube. LOVE AT LOOK LODGE should be released in Canada later this year. Continue reading →
Rhona Mitra (Commander Kiva in “Subversion“) co-stars with Theo James and Stacy Martin in ARCHIVE, a film set in 2038 in a remote and secret research facility where scientist George Almore (James) has been trying to produce a human-like machine intelligence. What George isn’t telling anyone is that his true purpose is to bring back his wife (who died years previously in a car accident) using her digitized consciousness and a lifelike robot. The robot, it seems, has some objections to his plans. A trailer is available on YouTube. ARCHIVE will be released digitally in the US on 10 July.
Mitra is also Martha in the surrealistic mystery THE OTHER ME. Jim Sturgess stars as Irakli, a young architect diagnosed with a debilitating eye disease which distorts his vision and eventually causes him to believe that he can see other people’s true motives. He meets Nino (Andreja Pejic), an artist who lives alone in the forest. She becomes his artistic muse and their relationship quickly develops into love. Meanwhile Irakli’s wife Nutsa (Antonia Campbell-Hughes), who works three jobs, begins a relationship with her new boss, a socialite from America who is also trapped in an unsatisfying marriage. THE OTHER ME was written and directed by Giga Agladze, and filmed in Tiblisi, Georgia. No release date has been announced. Continue reading →
