Susan Ireland: “I want to make a difference in the world, one house at a time”
Quotations abound in this episode and they are used effectively to set the mood for the story and characters. The first one is from Aleister Crowley (via August Ripley): “The conscience of the world is so guilty that it always assumes that people who investigate heresies must be heretics.” Luke Roman himself gets epigrammatic and suggests that “only love and low-maintenance composite decking last forever.” And later he offers (in an aside) a quote from Rochefoucauld: “It is with true love as it is with ghosts. Everyone talks about it, but few have seen it.” Much credit for the extraordinary visual impact of the episode must be given to Director Paul Fox, and Director of Photography Jackson Parrell because, as @NVGhost005 put it on twitter: “The cinematography for #SurrealEstate is the best I’ve ever seen on @SyFy.”Continue reading →
Let’s get to the important stuff first. We learn Zooey’s usual coffee order: “quad long shot medium-in-a-large-double cup half caff salted caramel mocha latte with two double pumps of vanilla and extra foam”. By contrast, Phil Orley (Adam Korson) takes his coffee black, with no room for cream. Father Phil (we find out) is married to handyman Anthony Tamblyn (Paul Ewan Wilson).
Luke’s father (Art Hindle) asks, during a game of miniature golf, if Luke and Susan are a thing. (Luke tells him they are not.) The miniature golf takes place at Funland (the same place where Luke used the batting cage last episode) and Luke turns the lights off before he leaves. He might actually own the place. Susan (Sarah Levy) thinks that Luke is into Megan Donovan (Tennille Read), and he does seem to be, but even if he is, Luke says he insists on separating his work life from his personal life.

Harper North (Melanie Scrofano) and Luke Roman (Tim Rozon) at the breakfast table at Harper’s family cottage on the lake. Scrofano and Rozon also star in the SyFy series WYNONNA EARP
Luke (Tim Rozon) heads north to see a new client, Harper North (Melanie Scrofano). Before leaving, he tasks Susan (Sarah Levy) with finding a house for an old client, horror author William Larson (Charlie Tomlinson). It seems that each time Larson wants inspiration for a new novel he buys a new house, and it needs to be a haunted one. (With Zooey’s help, Susan finds just the place for Mr. Larson, and it turns out to be Luke’s childhood home.) Tomlinson’s character brings to mind Victor Garber‘s recurring character Garrison Steele on another series shot in St. John’s – REPUBLIC OF DOYLE. Then Luke visits Harper’s haunted cottage where his experiences include getting whacked in the head with a shovel and spending a night sleeping on the forest floor. Continue reading →
