James Gaylyn, Craig Parker & Tandi Wright on "Legend of the Seeker" (2010)

The latest episode of "Legend of the Seeker" featured three PR alums amongst the guest cast. The episode titled "Unbroken" finds the wizard Zeddicus thrust into an alternate reality after attempting a spell to reverse evil magic used against his ally Cara. But after the spell is complete he discovers that Cara's past has been re-written, which has changed the course of history for himself, and his grandson The Seeker, Richard and his love Kahlan. When Richard & Kahlan tell Zedd how history unfolded differently, Tandi Wright (voice of Aisynia Cruger, SPD) appears in new flashbacks as Alina, a loyal Mord'Sith who fought at Cara's side back in the first season finale, "Reckoning." In the new, altered time Alina is at Darken Rahl's side when The Seeker gains the power needed to control his enemies and bend them to his will. Given the changed history, James Gaylyn (Colonel Truman, RPM) reprises his role as Trimack, the D'Haran commander who led troops to help The Seeker after he was proclaimed victorious over his brother Darken Rahl in the second season premiere "Marked." Trimack met an untimely demise in that episode. Now, Trimack is still a trusted follower of The Seeker in the changed world, but when he attempts to help Zedd & Kahlan change reality back to normal, he is killed along with his squadron, marking James Gaylyn's second appearance and second on-screen death on the series. Recurring star, Craig Parker (voice of Motodrone, Ninja Storm) appears throughout this episode as the villain Darken Rahl. In the altered reality, he has been forced to obey his brother Richard but when the magic cast on him is broken, he takes the opportunity to capture Richard and take the power for himself, giving him supreme control over everything. The series finale of "Legend of the Seeker" airs next weekend.
