Jaime Passier-Armstrong on "Legend of the Seeker" (2009)

"Legend of the Seeker" returned with a new episode last weekend and yet another PR alum was amongst the guest cast. Jaime Passier-Armstrong (Skyla, Ninja Storm) may have given Shane his battilizer on Ninja Storm, but she was bringing the pain to The Seeker in the show's eighth episode "Denna." Passier-Armstrong plays the role of Constance, a Mord'Sith who assists Denna in torturing Richard in an attempt to train him to turn against good and pledge his allegiance to Darken Rahl, who now fears killing The Seeker would only make him a martyr. Passier-Armstrong appears in several scenes of the episode and even takes over Richard's torture so that Denna may form a more romantic bond with him. After Richard is rescued and kills Denna, it's Constance who revives her using the Mord'Sith's mystical power, giving her the breath of life. PR voice actor Michael Hurst (voice of Vexacus, Ninja Storm) directed this episode of "Legend of the Seeker."

Amy Jo Johnson on "Flashpoint" - 10 (2009)

Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly, MMPR) returns to her starring role on the CBS/CTV drama "Flashpoint." The cop drama began its second season last week with the episode "Eagle Two." Johnson reprises her role as Jules Callaghan, an SRU officer who is once again on the front lines, as the team takes on the task of protecting a rich couple staying at an expensive hotel. Jules acts as security for the important man's wife, who goes missing on her watch after an explosion in the kitchen. Jules races to find the woman and when she does, she discovers she's been attached to a necklace bomb, used to blackmail her husband into confessing about his role in a trio of deaths in South America. Jules stays at the woman's side until she is safely disconnected. Jules blames herself for losing the woman in the first place and she's comforted by her teammate Sam Braddock (series regular David Paetkau), leading to a kiss. This episode was filmed during the show's first season, when Johnson was still pregnant. Her pregnancy remains partially hidden, but obvious in this episode.

Season 2 of "Flashpoint" currently airs on CBS and Canada's CTV

Dwayne Cameron, Antonia Prebble & Beth Allen on "The Tribe" (2000)

Episode #11 of "The Tribe's" third season marked the first time that all three starring PR alums appeared in the same episode during the third series. Dwayne Cameron (Tyzonn, Overdrive), Antonia Prebble (Clare, Mystic Force) and Beth Allen (Vella, Overdrive) all actually appear in one scene together during this episode as well. It's a notable episode of "The Tribe" for another reason. The episode features the major death of a member of the Mallrats. Dwayne Cameron & Beth Allen continue their roles as Bray and Amber, who has decided to help liberate the Mallrats from their captivity at the hands of The Chosen. She is partly convinced by her best friend, Dal, despite her problems with Bray at this point. Antonia Prebble continues as Trudy, The Chosen's Supreme Mother, who is outraged when The Chosen want to use her and her daughter as bait to trap the rebels, whom they know are planning to take the child to strike a major blow to The Chosen. Trudy does what she's told and is shocked to see Amber alive and well. The Chosen spring their trap and Amber is crushed when her friend Dal is killed in the ambush.
