Miss Haven Tonight? Let's Tell Syfy!!!

So no new Haven tonight for anybody, and I am sure we all miss it.

So I suggest we go to Twitter and  tell Syfy how much we miss the show, by sending them a short tweet with the hashtag #RenewHaven all day today. Or bother them all weekend I don't mind.

Can we do this?

TV Equals: 4.13 The Lighthouse Review

Haven Season 4 Episode 13 The Lighthouse (3)

Season four of Haven ended with a jaw-dropping cliffhanger. As Audrey attempts to push William through the door to another dimension, their touch reignites their connection. The fate of Audrey Parker is unknown, but one thing is for sure, her original incarnation, Mara, is back. Taking away the heroine of the tale is a bold move, especially in a season finale where the next season has not yet been confirmed. Let’s hope they know something we don’t, because if this show ended with Audrey seemingly gone, that would be a huge kick to the face for fans.

TV Equals: 4.12 When The Bough Breaks Review

Haven Season 4 Episode 12 When the Bough Breaks (2)

Haven has reached its boiling point as a result of a deadly trouble that William triggers in a baby. Every time the baby cries, people die. There is no way to predict the victims or prevent their deaths – not without William’s help. 

Ever since William escaped from the Barn, his sole purpose has been to reclaim his former partner in crime: the earliest incarnation of Audrey Parker. He’s decided that the best way to do this is to force Audrey to create a silencing trouble to stop the baby. 

The way William describes his relationship with Audrey the First is like a yin and yang of evil. They sound like the Bonnie and Clyde of troubles: living for their own pleasures and reveling in the misery of others. This twist in the show elevates the story out of the episodic trouble of the week format, and into a more complex and philosophical sphere. Assuming William is telling the truth, is Audrey inherently evil or does she have the free will to choose to be different?

Haven Season 4 - Gag Reel (uncut) *Spoiler Warning*

Possible Spoilers for Season 4 Finale

Thanks for the opportunity to ask about the Haven finale (airing Dec. 13). I suspect that Jennifer is from the same world as Audrey and William and thus is needed to open the portal so they can send William through. Will we find out who the fourth person is? Also, how much is the end of the episode going to make us scream? I’m predicting some bad stuff for Nathan. –Abby
Yes, you will find out who the fourth person is — but will he/she gladly go along with this scheme? Yes, the final moments will make you scream – in part because, yes, what happens could very well be described as “some bad stuff for Nathan.” Oh, and there’s also one, possibly two deaths.

TV Equals: 4.11 Shot in the Dark Review

Haven Season 4 Episode 11 Monster's Ball (3)

Haven went Blair Witch this week when a couple of ghost chasers arrive in town, hot on the trail of a heart-snatching monster. It was a fluffier episode than we’ve had in recent weeks, which was simultaneously nice and unnerving. 

The episode begins with the arrival of the monster chasers and a bloody crime scene. The usual for Haven. The meddling duo is intent on exposing the town’s secrets, and they mock the excuses that are typically given to cover up the fallout from the troubles. There was another reference to the Haven “gas leak” story – which was funny the first couple of times, but is becoming a little too shticky now. I didn’t mind the diversion from the heavier William/Audrey storyline, but I could’ve done without the shaky camera shots.

The monster is a creation of William – not the result of a trouble. I like this twist because it gives lots more options when it comes to the town’s problems. It also doesn’t have the pesky baggage that comes when a human is responsible. This particular bad guy is after all children born on a certain date – not-coincidentally, the same date as Jennifer.

Den of Geek: 4.11 Shot in the Dark Review

A SyFy show NOT about ghost hunting reality show types gets a visit from...ghost hunting reality show types!

The town's latest threat is not just a heart-eating monster, but also a film crew for a reality TV series (think Ghost Hunters or Paranormal Witness). Friends Seth and Anderson are filming away when they hear a scream and come upon a body with its heart ripped out. As the police investigate, everyone seems to think the attacker is a werewolf-like creature called a rougarou (and I'm glad someone texted it in the show because I had no idea how to spell it). The Darkside Seekers, as the TV crew are called, manage to piss off most of the police force, especially Dwight (whom they keep calling Bigfoot) and Duke (Ponytail).

Audrey (no one bothers calling her Lexie anymore) and William are both in the hospital recovering from their matching gunshot wounds. Nathan's a little worried about their little connection, since William is obviously dangerous and hurting him will only hurt Audrey. However, suddenly and inexplicably, Audrey and Will are both completely healed and William has escaped the hospital with help from his two goons.

Haven without the Troubles?

'Haven' season 4 episode 10 photos from "The Trouble With the Troubles"

WARNING: This article may contain spoilers.

Get ready for a different sort of episode with this week's "Haven" season 4 episode 10, "The Trouble With the Troubles," and you can get a look at what to expect with the promotional photos and the promo Syfy released Monday, Nov. 11.

In this next "Haven" episode, Audrey (Emily Rose) finds herself in an alternate Haven with no troubles, leaving her with a choice: Does she return Haven to normal or protect the ones she loves? Right now, things are getting crazy in Haven (and that's probably an understatement), and could that tempt Audrey as she tries to make this decision?

As the "Trouble With the Troubles" promo to the left shows, with one wish, the troubles are gone. Haven is now "the safest town in Maine," as a sign proclaims. Nathan's (Lucas Bryant) a doctor and Duke's (Eric Balfour) with the police—and he arrests Audrey. However, William (Colin Ferguson) is still around and the same as the last time we saw him. Plus, check out the promotional photos in the slideshow for a loo at Audrey, Nathan, and Duke in this alternate Haven.

"Haven" season 4 airs Fridays at 10 p.m. on Syfy. What do you think of the episode 10 "The Trouble With the Troubles" photos and promo?

Haven Is Trouble-Free!…?

Next Friday on Haven — in one of this Star Trek fan’s most favorite-titled episodes of anything ever — the Syfy drama will turn Audrey’s world upside-down. And we’ve got not one but three sneak peeks at the mind-bending hour.

In “The Trouble with Troubles,” Audrey awakes to discover that no one remembers her — save for one person — and that Haven is now trouble-free. (Just check out the new town sign in Clip 2.) But the burg’s newfound peace is shattered when William reveals a terrible plan, forcing Audrey to fight for the Haven she loves albeit in a Haven she’s never existed.

Tiffany Vogt Interviews Eric Balfour

TV Equals: 4.09 William Review

Haven Season 4 Episode 9 William 02

Just when we think that Nathan and Audrey have made it through all the obstacles and can finally be happy together, Haven pulls the rug right out from under us. What should have been a happy occasion, the return of William (Colin Ferguson), becomes a complete disaster for all our Havenites. 

When we left off last week, Audrey looked like she might shoot Nathan (though ardent viewers would never believe that was possible). Of course, she doesn’t. Duke, Jennifer, Vince, and Dave rush in and find Audrey shooting after the creepy big guy. As they head to the police station, Vince and Dave tell Nathan that the prophecy has changed and that if Audrey kills her true love, it will be catastrophically bad. This definitely seems like things are looking up for Nathan.

Syfy's 'Haven' Welcomes Danny Masterson and Kris Lemche as Guest Stars Friday November 22



NEW YORK – November 7, 2013 – Danny Masterson (Men At Work, That ‘70s Show) and Kris Lemche (Joan of Arcadia, Ghost Whisperer) join the cast of Syfy’s popular series Haven as guest stars in the episode airing Friday, November 22 at 10PM (ET/PT).

In the cross-over episode, titled “A Shot in the Dark,” Haven’s season-long social media storyline makes the jump to the small screen when the Darkside Seekers, a duo of paranormal investigators who star in their own low-budget TV reality show, pay the town of Haven a visit to investigate reports of a murder victim missing a heart. The Darkside Seekers are on a mission to expose Haven’s secrets after hearing numerous tales about the Troubles and the strange, hushed up occurrences that have been plaguing the town for years.

Masterson portrays “Anderson Harris,” one half of the Darkside Seekers team. He’s the man behind the camera – more comfortable tinkering with the equipment than with the idea of seeing a ghost. Anderson may be skeptical about the paranormal, but nothing stops him from keeping the cameras rolling if there’s even a remote chance of capturing evidence of the Supernatural on tape.

Lemche plays “Seth Byrne,” the host of the Darkside Seekers TV show. Seth is a true believer who has dedicated his life to the search for absolute proof of the Supernatural. Feisty, funny and fearless, he refuses to let anyone – no matter how intimidating or official – stand in the way of the truth he seeks to reveal.

Thought on Lay Me Down

I have to say that this has got to be the best episode of the season. Or the series, I’m not sure.

For the first time, the way the Troubles affect people were altered and that gives the show a whole new perspective. What other things could the two tough guys, who I think they’re called “The Seekers” can do? If they can alter the Troubles, can they stop them too?

Jennifer is back and the poor thing has now become part of the conspiracy of the Teagues brothers. They made her investigate herself; we find out she is adopted and that our beloved Agent Howard handled her adoption. Was she born in the barn and this is why she has a connection to it? Who are her parents?
I love the town’s new forensic… and I love that they brought back Vicky from episode 7 “Sketchy” from Season 1.

Duke has had the toughest days lately. Not only he is sure he cannot have Audrey, but Vince is putting some pressure by demanding him to have his brother out of Haven as soon as possible. To make things much worse, Wade finds out about the Crocker family legacy and he becomes drunk with power. I am glad that Duke put his friends before family by investigating his brother’s whereabouts and stopping him for killing someone who’s become important to him: Jennifer. I wonder what will happen now that Duke is no longer Troubled. And how that will affect his relationship with Nathan and Audrey.

Nathan and Audrey. Finally! I was started to fall back into disappointment when Nathan left the apartment, but was very happy to see him pull himself together, face Audrey and make her see the truth: that he loves her, that she loves him and there can’t be anything that stops them. That I guess it’s them against the world.

I am also happy that they kissed and we didn’t have to wait 9 seasons like in The X-Files. Not that I would’ve minded waiting 9 years, because that would’ve meant more Haven episodes, but thank you writers!

What do you guys think?

Happy Halloween!

Happy Haven Night, UK!

Good morning UK!

4.08 Preview + Episode Stills

"Haven" season 4 continues this week with episode 8, "Crush," and on Tuesday, Oct. 29, Syfy released promotional photos teasing the latest trouble to hit the town.

The latest "Haven" episode ended with Audrey (Emily Rose) and Nathan (Lucas Bryant) finally giving in to their feelings, but there were two certain people watching her apartment from the woods—and it looked like they were the ones responsible for the last trouble getting out of hand. So what will they do next? Plus, Duke (Eric Balfour) had to kill his brother, Wade (Christian Camargo) to save Jennifer (Emma Lahana), and he's determined to keep that a secret.

This next episode is going to see the pressure on when a deadly deep sea trouble threatens to crus the entire town and everything Audrey and Nathan think they know bout the Troubles.

TV Equals: 4.07 Lay Me Down Review

Let’s see. How can I describe this week’s episode of Haven? I guess the only words I have are: best episode ever! Everything we could have wanted was delivered with a shiny red bow. Haven’s writers really outdid themselves. They delivered a tight story that was a perfect balance of tragedy and comedy. I usually have something in a show to nitpick, but I can’t think of a single thing this week.

Haven Season 4 Episode 7 Lay Me Down (5)

Dream On.
Our troubled person this week was a newspaper delivery woman (BSG’s Kandyse McClure) who was inadvertently transferring her Freddy Kruger-like trouble to others in the town. Everyone was afraid to fall asleep because when they did, any physical harm they suffered in their dream manifested in the real world. For Duke, this involved a knife wound from a confrontation with Wade. Dwight’s dream gave him a bullet in the chest.

‘Haven’ Stars are Latest Special Guests at MCM London Comic Con

emily_haven-articleHaven stars Lucas Bryant and Emily Rose are to be special guests at MCM London Comic Con, which comes to ExCel London on 25-27 October. Emily Rose, who is also well known for her lead role in the critically-acclaimed Uncharted games, will be making her first MCM appearance, while Lucas Bryant is already a fan favourite at the show.

Based on the Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid, Haven sees a plague of supernatural afflictions known as The Troubles descend on a small town in Maine. Emily Rose plays Audrey Parker, a shrewd FBI agent sent to Haven to solve the murder of a local ex-con. Before long, however, Audrey finds herself caught up in a swirl of mysterious events and discovers that the town itself may have a shocking connection to her long-missing past.

Meanwhile, Lucas Bryant plays Nathan Wuonos, a local police officer who partners with Audrey to try to get to the bottom of the supernatural problems troubling Haven. Nathan’s controlled approach complements Audrey’s feisty nature, making them a great team …but his calm is put to the test as the townsfolk’s supernatural abilities begin to manifest.

Broadcast in the UK on Syfy, popular sci-fi series Haven is currently in its fourth season.

All the Reasons Why You Should Wtch Syfy’s ‘Haven’

Being a fan of any Syfy show can be a challenge. Your favorite show can run anywhere from one to ten seasons (I’m looking at you Stargate SG-1). No show is safe and every new season means waiting, with baited breath, to see if your favorite show will get the renewal. 

This season, for me, that show is Haven. I hadn’t realized what I had been getting into when I started season one on Netflix. I flew through the first three seasons and immediately bought the iTunes pass for season four. This show is one of T.V.’s hidden gems. There are beautiful character arcs that span every season. There’s mystery and suspense but they make a concerted effort to explain many of the mysteries each season. Those answers though, always beget new questions. 

Haven is a show that is loosely based on Stephen King’s novel, The Colorado Kid, and it follows the life of Special Agent Audrey Parker, as she investigates unusual happenings in Haven, Maine. This is not a crime drama and in fact the police work falls to the side quite quickly in lieu of the supernatural elements. Audrey is intrinsically connected to Haven, but just how much remains a mystery. The series also follows several other Haven residents including the handsome, yet shy, Officer Nathan Wuornos and the local bad boy, Duke Crocker. Each character has a specific role to play and it’s still unknown whether or not their choices have an impact or if it’s really just all up to fate. 

The best part of this show is the fandom. It’s not the largest group, but they are mighty. Promotion is mostly grassroots with the actors, writers and other crew offering access and information to get the word out about the show. Specifically show lead, @ERICBALFOUR and recurring cast member @KateKelton enjoy interacting with fans on an almost daily basis. It has a strong Tumblr and Twitter following with many wonderful, dedicated fan sites. Depending on your desired involvement it’s can be a real chance to feel as though you are a part of something bigger than yourself or, just a nice way to have in depth discussions about what will happen next. 

This Friday is a big push for Haven fans. We are hoping to boost the ratings to ensure that we get a season five. After all, we can’t let them leave us hanging. There are so many more questions that need answered! If this show sounds like something you’d enjoy, take the time to catch up on Netflix (watching out of order is ill-advised) and join us this Friday as we watch the show live. Tweet or Tumble #DiscoverHaven or #Pancakes to show your support. 

Give Haven a shot. I think you’ll be surprised how hooked you’ll be. Join us on Fridays at 10pm on Syfy and #DiscoverHaven.

Emily Rose Goes Sexy Teacher + Stills from Episode 4.07

Haven - Season 4

Nathan’s dreams are about to come true in episode 4.07 of “Haven” if these newly released stills are any indication. Emily Rose’s Audrey Parker channels that sexy teacher fantasy in a dream sequence that sees Lucas Bryant naked and late for class in an episode that’s all about dreams having real life consequences, aptly titled “Lay Me Down.” A nice little interlude for Haven’s resident star-crossed lovers while they continue to try to figure out how to end the Troubles without one of them having to kill the other.

Meanwhile, Eric Balfour is dealing with slightly less amusing problems as Duke’s issues with his newly returned – and newly revealed to be totally evil – brother Wade (Christian Camargo) becomes deadlier. Good thing his new sidekick/love interest Jennifer (Emma Lahana) is back in town and hopefully getting some answers about Haven from Richard Donat and John Dunsworth’s Vince and Dave.

The newest episode of “Haven” airs this Friday night at 10pm. See the new episode stills, plus the sneak peek, below.

Stills from Episode and Sneak Peek in Up and Comers

Thought on Countdown

I don’t know if saying that I’m a little disappointed on several issues about this episode is too tough, but I am so please, don’t blame me. I actually liked most of the episode.

As much as I complained about Jordan being bitchy, bitter and stalking Nathan all the time, I am sad her life had to end like that, because she was just a woman looking for some happiness, pretty much like the rest of the world. Nice performance by Kate Kelton by the way. I’ll miss her.

What’s disappointing me this season is the way the writers’ are handling Nathan’s character. I don’t like it. When you look at the other two main characters, Audrey and Duke, they’re strong, have their background and are constantly evolving. But Nathan? Correct me if I am wrong but it’s like he is living on the shadows of the other two characters. I thought we were going to see a stronger man once the Chief died, taking over his duties and be a boss, but it didn’t happen and now 2 years and 6 episodes later he seems weak and trying to play a martyr by ending the troubles. What will happen now that Audrey will refuse to kill him? I know that Nathan is a calmed, relaxed guy but I really hope that his character evolves soon to see a Nathan with more purposes than loving Audrey and trying to end the troubles. Besides it will be interesting to see more of Lucas Bryant’s acting skills. Come on, man!

Wade… poor SOB. I’m sure that he will have a very bad ending but in the meantime, I just don’t know how much damage he will do and… if he will come in between Nathan and Audrey once he finds out what Audrey can do.

More secrets continue to be revealed for the Teagues. See, this is what I mean when I talk about the evolution and background of a character. What a terrible thing he had to do. I guess he was in love. He should understand Nathan a little bit. I wonder if Dave has a secret too and will the writers please let us know why he feared Sarah Vernon so much or what is it some kind of filler?

Audrey… It took us four long episodes to get her out of the barn and she reveals herself to Nathan in one scene??? The writers gave it away too easily, too fast, too predictable.  I wish they had kept it a secret for another episode and be more original when Nathan found out. He didn’t even kiss her! What’s wrong with you??? This’d better have an explanation in future episodes or I will complain on Twitter.

On the other hand, Duke and Nathan’s friendship is absolutely brilliant. No more pain in the ass from Nathan to Duke, but a request of taking care of Lexie when Nathan is gone. Who would’ve thought. Another example of characters evolving, in this case, together. I wonder what will happen, because Wade will come in between their friendship.

The trouble of the week was very interested but they rushed the whole end to it. What a bummer.

Am I being too demanding? I’d love to read your thoughts.

TV Equals: Countdown Review

Haven Season 4 Episode 6 Countdown (2)

I told you this week’s Haven was going to be good! The show is just zipping along this season and giving us tons of twists and turns. It’s hard to tell what’s around the next corner, which makes things very exciting. 

Not only do we have our old Audrey back, but she’s also a bit spicier because she has retained the experiences of her alter ego, Lexie. Unfortunately, the ruse of Lexie doesn’t last too long thanks to Jordan and Wade. They bug the police station and figure out that Haven’s darling is back to her old self. This sets off a chain reaction that culminates in a showdown between Jordan and the group.

I thought they would drag out the Lexie story a bit longer and let Nathan slowly figure out that she was, in fact, Audrey. I’m not too disappointed by the quick reveal because it’s good to have them reunited. Hopefully, we will see more open affection between the two. After waiting so long for them to finally admit their love, it would be nice to see them together in a more than platonic way. I really like that Audrey is refusing to even consider the idea of killing Nathan to end the troubles. I wouldn’t expect her to go along with such a bad idea, but it’s her confidence that she’ll find another way to end the troubles that gives hope. It would be a boring season if it was just constantly debating whether or not to kill Nathan for the greater good. If there is another way, we’ll have an interesting journey as she tries to find it. I am guessing this will also bring back the people we previously met in the barn.
