Dayle McLeod (Jenny in “Vessel”) has written her first book, a memoir titled: “THE BIG DREAM: My Terrifyingly Beautiful Shamanic Initiation into the Arts”. After drinking the hallucinogen ayahuasca in Ojai, California on the winter solstice of 2014, McLeod found herself trapped in a dream realm. For forty days, she lived in a land of epic visions where she was initiated into the Illuminati and sent on a doomsday mission to collect the seven chakra jewels of the Earth. She was guided back to normalcy by a Native American Jungian psychologist, and that journey is what the book is mostly about. THE BIG DREAM is available in Paperback and Kindle formats.
McLeod appears briefly as Nathan’s friend Shyliegh in Episode 4.12 of KIM’S CONVENIENCE (titled “Knife Strife”) in which Umma (Jean Yoon) learns about a recent unsolved crime in the neighbourhood and believes she knows something about it, but doesn’t want to say how she knows, and Shannon (Nicole Power) hosts the Branch Managers Annual General Meeting. Season 4 of KIM’S CONVENIENCE can be streamed on CBC Gem in Canada, and on Netflix in the US. Continue reading →
Pree (Thom Allison) carries Zeph twenty miles across the badlands
John’s efforts to locate The Lady’s real body have the unexpected side effect of resurrecting Lucy (Tamsen McDonough) with all her memories intact. Once awakened, Lucy is able to rescue Fancy Lee (Sean Baek) from captivity, and in the process of his escape he stumbles on four large cocoons, the suggestion being that they contain The Lady’s real body, which means that The Lady might be some sort of ruling council rather than a single individual, or that her body might be stored in separate segments.
Zeph (Kelly McCormack) and Pree (Thom Allison) set out into the badlands on foot to escape The Lady’s death squads (which look a lot like the Jawa from STAR WARS). Pree must be in really good physical condition, because, when Zeph can’t walk any further, he carries her on his back the rest of the way to Turin’s safe house, a distance he estimates at twenty miles.

Jaq (Jaeden Noel) and Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) on an unknown planet outside The Quad. One wonders, why the bow and arrows and where did she get them?
Cage fighting and Corin Jeers, two things that were a part of the very first episode of KILLJOYS (Bangarang) are also part of this one. Jeers was the first person to be “locked and served” by Dutch and Johnny on KILLJOYS. In Bangarang, the fight was between D’Avin and John. In this one, Dutch gets entered into a prison fight tournament called the Bellaxion.
Originally ten families controlled Qresh. When Khylen and the Yardeens left Qresh for Arkyn (see Episode 3.7), the family lost all of its lands and power, leaving The Nine to rule. We know the names of the nine familes of Qresh from previous episodes (mostly from Necropolis Now, which was written by Andrew de Angelis, who also wrote this episode). They are: Derrish, Hyponia, Kendry, Lahani, Nenodall, Rinn, Simms, Trus, and Traclus. The Bellaxion is being run by Evi and Sylas of Land Robbel, so either one of the families has been renamed, or there is a new clan on Qresh. Continue reading →
