Damian Lewis is back filming this week, despite his character being executed at the end of the last series
PLEASE IGNORE THE HEADLINE, however:
- I did not want to post about this until it was 100% confirmed that he was on set for the purpose of filming. Basically until the actual episode aired. But I saw a photo last Thursday that led me to believe he was going to be in Cape Town, though the reason why was still unclear.
- This photo—seriously, how the fuck did a photographer get on set and so close to his trailer???—is kind of the last straw. This is a pretty major news publication posting this, so it seems silly for me not to.
I think this is without a doubt the most inane thing Alex Gansa has ever done, and I’m having trouble imagining any scenario in which a Brody appearance (flashback, etc.) does not feel like egregious fan pandering.
Unlike the author of the linked story, this does not give me hope that Brody survived the hanging, and yet I would be lying if his presence didn’t cause me to think it at least once. And the entire reason why is because stupid shit like this happens EVERY. FUCKING. SEASON.
The desire for revenge, it’s a part of grieving…
