Dark Matter’s Anthony Lemke guest stars on Private Eyes

Attention Dark Matter fans! With the June 9 return of the sci-fi adventure on the way, star Anthony Lemke drops by Private Eyes to shake up Angie’s world. Thursday’s newest episode, “Boardwalk Empire,” written by Marcus Robinson and directed by Rob Lieberman, also introduces fans to Zoe Chow (Samantha Wan), who goes from client to employee in the blink of an eye.

Here’s Global’s official episode synopsis:

The tenacious Zoe Chow hires Shade and Angie to find out who has broken into her apartment in the Beach. It looks like their client may be imagining things – until they uncover a real-life conspiracy to tear down Zoe’s eightplex and replace it with a massive condo tower.

And here are some spoiler-free notes we gleaned from watching the episode.

Samantha Wan as Zoe Chow

Zoe makes an impact on Angie and Shade
It’s not so much the case that attracts Angie and Shade to Zoe, but her personality. She’s quick-thinking, exuberant and quirky as all get-out. As stars Cindy Sampson and Jason Priestley told us, hiring Zoe means Angie and Shade can spend more time in the field. We love that. Also, check out Wan in Second Jen, the hilarious comedy series she and Amanda Joy created for City.

The mystery is solved
Remember the envelope Shade found taped to the bottom of Angie’s dad’s desk? It contained a key to a safety deposit box and Angie opens the box before episode’s end. That sends her and Shade’s business in a new direction.

Anthony Lemke slimes it up
Lemke is the big bad in this week’s instalment. We don’t want to give anything else away, except to say Lemke isn’t your typical villain.

A change of scenery
The episode begins with Angie and Shade in Toronto’s Beaches neighbourhood and that area of the city will play a big part in the rest of Season 2. I’m excited about the opportunities that will give the show going forward.

Private Eyes airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
