Continuum films scenes for the Season 3 Finale with Victor Webster. Plus other cast pics from the finale off set.
This Sunday (or Friday if you are in The U.S.) the season 3 finale of the hit Canadian Sci-Fi cop-from-the-future Police drama "Continuum" will air their season 3 finale. As it stands right now, theres constantly more questions opened up than are answered.
This season has seen a few more cast turn overs than the 1st couple of seasons perhaps. With the deaths of Jack Dillon, Betty Robertson & Sonya Valentine, 3 longstanding characters from the pilot, there is a clear sign almost everyone can be killed.
Of course, some of those gaps in the cast have been filled with new characters, like the man who made Liber8 seemingly dissolve, Brad Tonkin (played by Ry Robbins) and the elevation of the freelancers to more regular roles.
On the particular day I was at the set, I ran into a few cast members.
I saw Stephen Lobo (dressed very futuristic with greying hair. I wasn't going to comment on...but since they showed a little snippet of future Kellogg in a hologram a couple eps ago...guess I can say it), Zak Santiago, Terry Chen, Ryan Robbins and even Rachel Nichols (but she asked me to not post pics of her from that day...so, sorry).
But the 1 scene I saw that day was an interesting one that makes me wonder what will happen in the finale. I actually thought I had a clue where this scene was going when I watched episode 12... until Sonya blew everything up. Now, I don't know what the context of this scene is for.
Its clear though, Carlos Fonnegra (played by Victor Webster) seems to be in some trouble with that squad we saw in the VPD HQ near the end of episode 12... but why? Who is this mystery team? What do they want with Fonnegra? The scene has Fonnegra race down an alley hoping to get away, but is cornered by 3 vehicles coming from each direction. Victor Webster shot many of the scenes quite well, but his stunt double driver did do it with a bit smoother precision. I'll be curious to see where & how that scene is cut.
Perhaps we will get some answers in the season finale this weekend....... of course, knowing the genius of Continuum, we'll get as many new questions as we get answers.....and hey, maybe season 4 will start right back where we started season 3. We know its possible....and it would help the writers bring back Betty, Sonya & Jack.
Until then...heres my last set pics of season 3 of Continuum.
Continuum season 3 finale airs
Sunday June 22 on Showcase in Canada
Friday June 27, 2014 on Syfy in the U.S.
Recently, I caught up with the cast & crew of Continuum filming scenes near their "Vancouver Police Headquarters" at the Plaza Of Nations This time however, it was not the VPD side of the cast filming, but Luvia Petersen & Omari Newton doing a scene as Garza & Lucas.
As you know if you have kept up with this current season of Continuum, Garza helped Lucas escape the Mental hospital with 1 of the more entertaining & creative escapes I have ever seen any show implement. One of the last things he says to her before they take off is how much he misses sushi. As we see in this scene, Lucas finally gets some sushi. Which was funny in itself, as Omari would spit out the sushi after every take. Guessing either Omari doesnt love it as much as his character, or the more likely, you dont want to eat 50 takes of sushi in 1 day.
In this scene Garza and Lucas are in a park/trail talking when Garza then takes out a needle & jabs it into Lucas. What is it? No clue. Lucas didnt seem too concerned by it, but considering he might be a tad nuts, this shouldnt come as a shock. Also, lets be honest. If Garza tells you she going to stick a needle into your neck, theres not much you are going to be able to do to stop Garza from sticking a needle into your neck... so might as well go with it I suppose.
While Luvia & Omari were filming, my buddy & I ran into Rachel Nichols who was leaving the trailers to o to their 2nd location that was shooting that day. I also saw Victor Webster, but as you can see by my photo, I didnt get a photo of his face as he was distracted by a couple dogs.
Eventually Omari & Luvia wrapped their scenes. The production moved inside the VPD HQ. I got autographs from Omari, who asked me if I was a fan of the show, and Luvia who I also told that I liked her performance on another local show Psych, that she had a guest spot on that I had seen just recently before the filming of this day.
Continuum season 3 is on right now Sundays on Showcase in Canada, and Fridays on Syfy in the U.S.
Recently, I caught up with the cast & crew of Continuum filming an episode at the Patricia Hotel mere blocks from my place.
In this scene Kiera Cameron ( Rachel Nichols ) is riding along with Inspector Dillon ( Brian Markinson )of all people. They get out of the cruiser, Dillon goes 1 way, while Kiera stands around, sees a black man carrying some groceries & then pursues him. She draws her gun & shoots & the man goes flying to the ground. As she is preparing to cuff the suspect, Dillon rounds the corner to see the end of it.
There were other scenes shot in the area over the couple days they were there including 1 I missed the next day that had Garza ( Luvia Petersen ) in a fight scene around the other side of the hotel. As well, some scenes shot inside the Patricia Hotel.
Below are the pics from this shoot.
Continuum returns for season 3 Tomorrow March 16, 2014 on Showcase in Canada. It returns April 4, 2014 in the U.S. on Syfy.
Continuum films a scene for season 3 with a returning guest star I didn't expect
THIS BLOG CONTAINS NOTABLE SPOILERS FOR SEASON 3 OF "CONTINUUM". Do not continue reading, or viewing the photos below if you do not want to know major spoilers about the show prior to its airing.
Not long before Christmas hiatus, I caught the crew & some of the cast of the Canadian sci-fi cop from the future hit drama Continuum out filming scenes for season 3 (I believe episode 4 or 5 judging by the time of the month I caught up to them). I actually had come across them a few times over the past couple weeks, but this was the 1 & only chance to actually SEE the filming.
The scene that was being shot caught me off guard, and made me instantly excited to see where season 3 could go. So what did I see that had me so curious about where they could be going with this upcoming season?? Well, its the return of a character. Yes, a character returning changed how I was looking at season 3, and probably will for you too.
Imagine my confusion when I showed up to see Stephen Lobo as Matthew Kellogg shooting scenes with a young gorgeous redheaded Magda Apanowicz as Emily Hartwell.
So Alec obviously succeeded in going back in time to save Emily as she is quite fine. But, did Alec get "his" Emily back?? I ask this, because the scene she did with Kellogg suggested very much she knows very little of her past. She looked at Kellogg, a man she SHOULD have known from her past life as if he was a stranger. They then talked for a bit, and in the end, Kellogg leaves while Emily curls up into a ball on the rainy streets of Vancouver & breaks down crying.
When filming was done. I asked Stephen if he minded signing for me, he said sure. Since it was raining pretty good out, I asked if he could take inside the building they were using as the holding area for the actors in between scenes, he did & gave them to me shortly after. I then wished him a happy holidays as I had learned it was his last day of filming for 2013 (the show still had a few more days though)
So when Alec went back in time, did he delete Emily & him ever knowing each other as well? or do you think they meet under different circumstances & she just doesnt know Kellogg?
In other news, I finally met Victor Webster a few weeks ago. After trying for him 3 or 4 times over the 1st couple seasons, I actually met him AFTER I had decided there was little chance of seeing anyone at the set I was at (in the snow) and had walked away & as I was coming back around the back end of the block they were on, who should I run into walking back to set from his break? Victor. Great guy. Took the time to sign in the snow for me. Funnier yet, after not running into him for 2 seasons, I saw him twice in a month as he left with Rachel Nichols one day at a set in the final week while I was getting Rachel to sign some, he saw me said hello agian & got into the van.
Continuum returns for its 3rd season March 16th on Showcase.
