Private Eyes: Mark Ghanimé guests as a key to Angie’s past

Fans of Mark Ghanimé rejoice! The Canadian actor who was a hero on Helix and a victim on Slasher is back in primetime in Thursday’s new episode of Private Eyes.

As Jason Priestley and Cindy Sampson told us exclusively a few weeks ago, Ghanimé and fellow guest star Bree Williamson serve as romantic foils for Shade and Angie through Season 2, adding a level of complexity to the pair’s business relationship. We got our first peek at Williamson’s Melanie Parker last week when she and Shade got smoochy. Here’s what Global says about Thursday’s episode, “Between a Doc and a Hard Place,” written by Jackie May and directed by Kelly Makin:

After a series of break-ins, Angie and Shade are hired to find out who’s targeting a pro bono medical clinic in Danforth Village. Their first surprising discovery? The clinic’s Dr. Ken Graham also happens to be Angie’s ex-fiancé. Despite his blossoming relationship with lawyer Mel, Shade is laser-focused on proving that the handsome, humanitarian, multi-lingual, guitar-playing, motorcycle-riding Dr. Ken isn’t all he’s cracked up to be. But even he isn’t ready for the surprise he discovers.

And, as always, a few tidbits from us after watching a screener.

Longtime love for Shade?
Seems as though Shade and Melanie have gotten quite serious. At least, last week’s hookup certainly wasn’t a one-time thing. But is it a season-long relationship or more of a fling?

Maz is back!
We’ve missed Ennis Esmer’s memorable, lovelorn character. Luckily, this week’s case means involvement from the detective, who takes pleasure in the uncomfortableness between Dr. Ken and Angie.

Who is Ken, and what happened between he and Angie?
The guy is super-smart, good-looking and has an impressive resumé, so why didn’t he and Angie work out? Prepare to learn all.

Bitten actor drops by
Mark Ghanimé isn’t the only new face in Thursday’s storyline. Tommie-Amber Pirie appears too, just days before her second Killjoys episode on Friday night. Small world, this Canadian TV industry.

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