    Well, with Haven moving to Thursdays, my DVR just blew up! Hopefully they will still air the new episodes later in the night.

  2. liz says:

    oh I’m sorry, they are talking about Belle in a way that doesn’t revolve around her husband? That sounds unlike them. lol

  3. Moment says:

    Thursday is a good day for Haven, WWE Smackdown did nothing for it, and it must have a loyal enough following to get the same numbers on Thursday regardless.

  4. Tony says:

    Belle’s mother’s name is Collette? Is that the name of the French Maid/Duster in the Disney animated movie?

    • Hannah says:

      No, her name was Fifi in the movie. But in the broadway musical her name was Babette, so maybe that’s what you’re thinking of?

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Can’t wait to see Haven’s season premiere next week! Hope they do well at their new timeslot. Good news about The Exes getting more episodes for season 4.

  6. Ian says:

    Wouldn’t it have made more sense to follow the disney tale more closely than this though?

    Belle’s mother died when she was young, and then it was just her and her inventor father and suitors like Gaston, that people are familiar with. So I’m surprised the show just isn’t doing a spin more based on that.

  7. Dean says:

    For some reason she looks a little like Barbra Hershey.

    Haven’s season 5 premiere episode Thursday Sep 11th at 8pm repeats at 11:10pm that night.
    SyFy is doing a mini-marathon of Season 4 eps from 8am-5pm this Thursday as well.
    I am really looking forward to the return of one of my favorite shows.
