Things get ghoulish on Private Eyes

Last week on Private Eyes, Angie’s past returned when her ex-fiancé, Dr. Ken (Mark Ghanimé) had his clinic broken into and drugs were stolen. By the end of the instalment, the pair shared a sultry kiss in the darkened offices of Everett Investigations. Would the storyline continue this week with more liplocks?

Here’s what Global says about Thursday’s episode, “Six Feet Blunder,” written by Katrina Saville and directed by Jill Carter. And note that next week’s episode is Private Eyes‘ Season 2A finale—the final nine stories will be broadcast in 2018.

When a panicked mortician hires Shade and Angie to track down a missing body, they find themselves crashing funeral services around the city, eventually unearthing a family plot to bury millions of dollars of a controversial inheritance. Meanwhile, Jules’ impending birthday gives Shade a chance to show off his party-planning skills, but he still has one problem…figuring out the right time to invite significant others to family affairs.

And, as always, here are more details after we watched a screener.

Dr. Ken is back
Yup, this week’s story picks up closely following the events of last week’s. You can put two and two together, right? We don’t need to spell it out, do we?

So is Melanie
I actually thought the romance between Shade and Mel would last just a couple of episodes. And I’ve been totally wrong assuming the addition of extra characters would draw attention away from Shade and Angie. Instead, Ken and Mel have added a layer to our favourite detectives that have made them more enjoyable and fully formed. It’s also added a layer of complexity, as Shade is still wondering whether he should be introducing Mel to Jules.

The case has an effect on Zoe
Helping Shade and Angie causes Zoe to reflect on her life and the impact—or lack thereof—she may have on the world. Also: Kim’s Convenience fans should keep an eye out for Sugith Varughese (Mr. Mehta) in a guest-starring role.

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

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.
