Dominion Cast Header

Syfy has certainly broken my heart. One of my favorite shows, a little jewel I discovered just after its first season aired has been cancelled. Dominion, based on 2010s Legion, was set 25 years after angels fell to Earth and warred with mankind – the war that began on Christmas Day, 2016. The Chosen One, Alex (Christopher Egan) grew up protected by the Archangel Michael (Tom Wisdom), who believed it was God’s will. He often fought his own brother, the archangel Gabriel (the delighfully evil Carl Beukes) who wanted mankind destroyed.

Dominion
Season 2 Episode 13: “Sine Deo Nihil”
Directed by Deran Sarafian
Written by Vaun Wilmott
Created by Vaun Wilmott
Starring Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Anthony Head, Carl Beukes, Shivani Ghai, Christopher Egan, Kim Engelbrecht

Air Date: Thursday, October 1st, 2015, 10:00pm

So… what did you think of the finale?

Last week on Dominion, we found out exactly when the Angel War started, way in the past – Christmas 2016, and that Gabriel (Carl Beukes) started it. AND… that Noma (Kim Engelbrecht) was on Gabriel’s side at the time. This is revealed during a knock-em-down, drag-out fight between Gabriel and Michael (Tom Wisdom). Michael is getting his angelic ass kicked by darker than usual Gabriel, until he reveals their bro Lucifer is still around and in Mallory, Alabama. In the aftermath of the Amphora illusions, everyone is self-reflective and for the most part, regretful. Except William Whele (Luke Allen-Gale). He’s a crazy killing monster, that David Whele (Anthony Head) has to put down whilst sobbing. I think he had no choice. David was finally genuinely helping Claire (Roxanne McKee), when William came in, smashed everything, and opened the gate to the 8-Balls. Arika (Shivani Ghai) seems good now, but she really just wants to go home, rescuing a little Vega girl on the way. Claire and Alex (Christopher Egan) flirt in front of Noma, as their impending 8-Ball doom approaches rapidly.

Be sure to check out the Dominion “Herald Angels” music video which matches the light Christmas ditty, “Hark, The Herald Angels Sing” with the kills from season 2. That video is below.

Last week’s Dominion was completely bananas, and the best Dominion I have ever seen. Darkness-infused Gabriel (Carl Beukes) set the Amphora upon Vega, and everyone started hallucinating, except Alex (Christopher Egan). Just another benefit of chosen one tattoos. Everyone pretty much went batshit crazy. Claire saw her baby and a world where she and Alex and Willow (the baby) were a happy family. David (Anthony Head) had a noose around his neck when he was saved at the last minute… by an 8-Ball version of himself. 8-Ball David taunts and torments real David. Arika has a role reversal, and finds herself chained and called 8-Ball by Claire (Roxanne McKee) and Rose (remember Rose?). The picture of her mother almost haunts her, and she almost kills herself. William Whele (Luke Allen-Gale) has visions of Gabriel, Claire, and lastly Alex telling him he is not the chosen one. Late to the party (the Amphora affects angels more slowly) are Noma (Kim Engelbrecht), who thinks her wings are back, to the point where she finds the Amphora and wants to fly away with it, and Michael (Tom Wisdom), who has visions of Noma killing Alex. That made him want to kill her. When Alex finally closed the Amphora, everyone was shaken and regretful.

Air Date: Thursday, September 17th, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Dominion, we lost Gates (Nic Bishop) in an extreme act of sacrifice, just when he and Alex (Christopher Egan) were on the sweet side of competitive bonding. General Riesen (Alan Dale) switched over to the angel side of dyad-ism after Gabriel executed Clementine. The human part of him could not handle the pain. Michael plays poker with the Prophet for his soul and Mallory, Alabama. Luckily he wins, but that luck will not hold out for long. William Whele (Luke Allen-Gale) allowed David (Anthony Head) to be captured by Claire (Roxanne McKee). Gabriel (Carl Beukes) dropped the Amphora into the city of Vega.

Last week on Dominion, Michael, Noma, and Alex (Tom Wisdom, Kim Engelbrecht, and Christopher Egan) make their way into Vega with Claire’s (Roxanne McKee) help, and then everybody’s feelings get confused. Dominion showed us the softer side of Arika (Shivani Ghai -in the way way past), and it makes her ruthlessness a bit more understandable now. Julian (Simon Merrells) amphora-sizes Gabriel (Carl Beukes) in an effort to take over his body, but we knew that couldn’t happen, right? Now Gabriel is pure evil, and Julian barely escapes with his life. Michael passes out and meets The Prophet in his mind (which also happens to be in Mallory, Alabama).

Syfy
Air Date: Thursday, September 3rd, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Dominion, Alex (Christopher Egan) proved even chainsaw wielders are no match again him. But a mob of 8-Balls might be, so Michael (Tom Wisdom) swooped in and saved him and Noma (Kim Engelbrecht). Julian (Simon Merrells) changes tactics with hostage Gabriel (Carl Beukes), and decides to torture him via sexy hallucinations. What does he imagine? An orgy with Arika (Shivani Ghai), Claire (Roxanne McKee), and Noma. Not a terrible way to be broken. William Whele (Luke Allen-Gale) is back and preaching about being chosen by God. We flashbacked to General Riesen’s (Alan Dale) past and got an awesome look at the beginning of this dystopia. I can understand why he succumbed and agreed to become a dyad. Claire’s people get the drop on Zoe’s (Christina Chong), and she is badly hurt. David (Anthony Head) and Arika’s treachery is found out. He’s arrested and she runs away, but not before she slips a little poison into Gates (Nic Bishop) glass. Claire goes to Zoe’s cell and shoots her in the head.

Season 2 Episode 8: “The Longest Mile Home”

Written by Harley Peyton & Jerry Shandy
Created by Vaun Wilmott
Starring Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Anthony Head, Luke Allen-Gale, Carl Beukes, Nic Bishop, Shivani Ghai, Christopher Egan, Alan Dale, Simon Merrells
Syfy
Air Date: Thursday, August 27th, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Dominion, we went back (via flashback) to when Gabriel (Carl Beukes) was in charge of a chosen one, namely, his son David. David’s destiny was to save everyone by felling the giant Goliath, which he performed excellently, with a little angel guidance from Michael (Tom Wisdom). But something must have turned Gabriel to the dark side, and it is revealed that the king killed his son, and replaced him with an imposter he could control. All this flashbacking happened while Julian (Simon Merrells) was shock torturing the two brothers. Gabriel sacrifices himself not once, but twice, for Michael – taking all of the shock at first, and then shoving Michael through a door to freedom, when he tries to drag Gabriel with him. I love him. Julian messes with General Riesen (Alan Dale) by showing up with an 8-Ball that has the lower angel who was inside his wife Clementine. Confused? Him too. And me too. Zoe (Christina Chong) agrees to meet with Claire (Roxanne McKee), but David Whele (Anthony Head) mucks it up by ordering a secret failed hit, getting Claire in the leg, which causes a miscarriage. In a comedic, yet horrific turn (the best kind), Alex (Christopher Egan), and Noma (Kim Engelbrecht) find themselves in a huge store, filled with supplies, corpses, and 8-Balls who still think they work there… until they don’t and attack. They are dispatched of pretty quickly, but the mob of 8-Balls outside (one with a chainsaw) don’t bode too well for the plucky duo.

Last week on Dominion, David Whele (Anthony Head) sticks Zoe (Christina Chong) right into the forefront of a revolution. He writes her a speech to broadcast to the entire city of Vega, but halfway through, she broadcasts her own written from her heart. She is really upset because her BFF Jasper dies, but powers through. So much so that she shoots David in the leg as a warning. Gates (Nic Bishop) intercepts the message to put Claire’s message through, but is put in danger when Arika (Shivani Ghai) passes this along to David. Claire (Roxanne McKee) rewards this insolence with sex. Noma (Kim Engelbrecht) and Alex (Christopher Egan) escape Julian (Simon Merrells) and New Delphi, after Noma rips out her own wings (Ewww!!!). Michael (Tom Wisdom) and Gabriel (Carl Beukes) do not.

Air Date: Thursday, August 13th, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Dominion, there’s a few Michael/Alex flashbacks (Tom Wisdom/Christopher Egan), and it highlights the bond they have, even though it doesn’t seem as if Alex is on Michael’s side. After all, he helps Julian (Simon Merrells) capture Michael and Gabriel (Carl Beukes) in angel nets, after they go on a bloody rampage in New Delphi. Arika (Shivani Ghai) is revealed to be playing both sides. Evil and beautiful is a deadly combo. Claire (Roxanne McKee) puts a bounty on Zoe’s (Christina Chong) head, which causes some insurgence. Jasper is shot, but still calls shotgun on David Whele’s (Anthony Head) Vega explosions.

Dominion 2.6 “Reap The Whirlwind” review: With the city in two, David is prepared to instruct Zoe:

“Welcome to your revolution.”

Zoe gives the “Rocky” speech to her V1 half of Vega, but almost loses it when her bestie Jasper dies.

Last week on Dominion, David Whele (Anthony Head) was back and as wild as ever. He gets kidnapped by Zoe (Christina Chong), and starts his manipulation games, trying to convince her that he can help her cause. Michael (Tom Wisdom) and Gabriel (Carl Beukes) are reunited, and after some fighting, decide to join together to defeat Julian (Simon Merrells). Back in New Delphi, Alex (Christopher Egan) and Noma (Kim Engelbrecht) find out that Julian is a dyad (half-human, half-angel), and is in posession of a jar of death that can can put lower angels into humans. This is how he made his weird trance-y 8-Ball army. When he tries that crap on Noma, she wigs out and steals the jar.
