Ben’s dream, with a bright yellow and white colour scheme featuring sunflowers.
Robb Wellens (Deniz Akdeniz) arrives in Bristol Cove with a recording of his tribe’s echo chamber (where the songs of his ancestors are stored), and it is used first to bring Xander (Ian Verdun) out of a coma, and then to cure all other surviving victim of Tia’s song. (It seems that neither the song nor the cure for it requires any sort of high quality sound equipment to be effective.) Xander wakes up and immediately takes charge of things. (The cure must actually repair brain damage caused by the song, rather than just stopping it from progressing further.) He and Deputy Staub (Tammy Gillis) lead the hybrid volunteers, who are immune to the effects of the song, in the search for more victims. Continue reading →
After losing a battle with the Alaskan tribe, Tia (Tiffany Lonsdale) and Hunter (Katie Keough) make their way to Dunay, a small town near Vladivostok in Russia. “We are here to make allies in this half of the world,” Tia tells Hunter. Then they see a news report about an attack in Ternopil, Ukraine in which Tia’s song (which she no longer can sing) is used as a weapon to kill several office workers. (Ternopil is a university town, and in no way a military target.) When Tia realizes that the Russians have weaponized her song, she goes to Vladivostok, looks up the guy who helped her escape, kills him, and steals back her weaponized song. (Tia is not as bright as Ryn had given her credit for. She needed a prompt from the Russians to realize the Song’s destructive potential.) Continue reading →
Two hybrids unload Bryan’s body. Beth Marzdan (Caroline Cave) is less than pleased that Xander knows about the hybrid community.
Two characters get scolded for their behaviour. Cami (Millan Tesfazgi) gets a talking to from Helen (Rena Owen) for killing Bryan. Cami accepts Helen’s statement that she is not the one to determine who lives and who dies, and that’s the end of that. Xander (Ian Verdun) and his fellow sheriff’s deputy trainees have to rescue Calvin’s tour boat, because Calvin (Curtis Lum) forgot to replace the fuel gauge and the thing ran out of gas. Xander lectures Calvin on responsibility, and Calvin defuses this by buying Xander expensive scotch and asking him to be best man at his wedding. It seems that Merfolk recognize and accept authority much more easily than do humans. It also seems likely that we will get to see Calvin and Janine (Hannah Levien) get married this season.
