Inheritance Is back, baby! After shortening Season 3 of the CW’s Supernatural series, the last four episodes of the season began in Season 4, beginning with tonight’s premiere episode, “You Have to Choose One This Time.” And as the episode begins, Hope Mickelson (Daniel Rose Russell) is dealing with more than one serious issue. But the biggest thing is that he may have to become a treadmill, a combination of vampires, witches and werewolves, which would mean that he would have to die (temporarily).
Russell teased to decide. “I’m really looking forward to people hoping that hope will eventually be satisfied with what they’re avoiding.”
In hours, and The spoilers have passed through this place., Salvator School students catch a malware with one of their enemies, with one catch: he’s in the form of a fellow student, and Hope on On, Repeated Boyfriend, London (Arya Shahgasmi). Together, they come up with a double plan: while their headmaster Alark (Matt Davis) and student Caleb (Chris Lee) go to Malware’s mind, Hope and MG (Quincy Foz) sneak in from behind. Guys, thanks for some magic from Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) and Josie (Kelly Bryant). Eventually, Alark and Caleb discover that the real Londoner is still inside the malware, but hopefully retain that information. And in the meantime, Hope leaves the opportunity to find London to save MG’s life.
Read on to find out more about the big selection facing hope in the episode – as well as the upcoming ones.
Decide: These are too big for the first four hopes as she starts the fight with potentially becoming a treadmill; obviously there are high expectations for her with the show’s characters and fans, but as an actor who really Hope plays the role, how has this potential change been for you?
Daniel Rose Russell: It’s been really good. I’ve redefined the role I’ve played for so long, and it’s breaking down the steady energy I felt with it, and I’ve found a new one with it. It has been a good challenge to know what the relationship is like.
Jumping into the premiere, what was it like working against Brylandon?
It was really fun, actually. It was a pleasure to see Arya reinterpret her role throughout the season, working as an actor. He did a really good job with Bryland / Malware, which I think the fans will really like.
Overall, much of the premiere event is about Hope, who knows how to move beyond his dependence on London. What does she do now that she’s starting to leave him? Or can she really never let go completely?
I don’t know if she will ever let go completely. That relationship, and the love he has for her, is what decides her and her destiny. I would say, though, that it’s very different from London. Just fulfilling it and stepping into that destiny, the legacy he – we’ve all been waiting for so long. It’s her own decision, and she’s just out of London and focuses more on her love for saving people she must know.
The turning point of the episode is London. Is He’s still in Malware, and Alark and Caleb are lying to him. What will it possibly do with all these relationships, once hope is actually found?
Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. I think her relationship with Alark is more complicated than any other. Playing with it is one of my favorite dynamics. I like the Hope and Alark animations, and I don’t think we’ve really seen them work together since Season 1. A little stressful, but also really beautiful. There are so many beautiful moments coming up for them. So that’s really interesting.
I wanted to ask you about him because he really started out as a father figure, a mentor to him. At this point, are they more equal? How do you view relationships?
Quite complicated In fact, it is a good question that I am not often asked. In a way I see them as equals, but I think there will always be a part of both Hope and Alark that feel the father-daughter relationship. I think Hope really respects Alark in many ways. And I think Alark respects hope, and seeing that the relationship is as complex as it is, it’s a metaphor for the complexities that come in people’s lives, and that families are never cookie-cutter and perfect. Are And given this complex relationship, hope has been one of the best joys to play.
The last few episodes of Season 3, and it picked up very well here, really dug into the victory of hope, Lizzie and Josie. What is it like working with Kelly Bryant and Jenny Boyd in these scenes?
It was good. I really hope there is friendship. And I think it was really extended last year, and seeing how Lizzie and Josie really support Hope, it was great to see them fight for it too. In the first two episodes, you definitely see this relationship work, they promise to help her through all these ups and downs, and they certainly do.
Towards the end of the episode, it’s a really beautiful scene where Lizzie asks Hope to go to bed at night, which in my mind seems huge considering their previous hostile relationship. What do you think of this arc between them, and what was it like playing this scene?
I love the relationship between Hope and Lizzie. This is one of my favorite relationships. And I think it’s like the beautiful place they’ve gotten in the last two years, and just looking at how many human moments there are, it’s a very humane and grounded moment that it’s just like that. “Hey, maybe you can stay with me because I’m going through something. And the hope is exactly the same,” Yes, of course. “It’s really good, always stay away from the supernatural side of things and just Seeing that these characters exist as human beings.
Contrary to Spectrum, we have Josie quit working on her relationship with Finch in this episode, but she also reunites. From the viewer’s point of view, it looks as if Josie is dealing with De Merge, hopefully dealing with becoming a Tribe, in terms of magical destiny, some kind of connection. Is that something we expect the weather to continue?
I don’t think so The journey of hope here and there has been something bigger than a few special relationships. So when she’s dealing with the people around her, it’s very much based on her own destiny. Josie feels the same way, especially with her relationship with Finch, which is her number one priority. So in a way I feel like we see them tackling these supernatural challenges, respectively.
As we go through the friendship, I’m really enjoying the friendship between Hope and Cleo; what is it like working with Omono? And what is it that brings these two characters together in your mind?
Playing with Hope and Cleo Dynamics last year was my favorite. Omono has been a great addition to our cast. His story has been a piece of the lost puzzle that our story has needed for so long. I mean, it’s really refreshing to create a new character that’s moving the story forward, and it’s great to work with Omono. So I’m excited to see how this relationship works.
I know these episodes were filmed a while back, and obviously making a movie in Coved has been so challenging. Is it okay now that you’re dealing with Season 4 episodes, or is it something similar?
It’s the same for the kind of fear around working every day. Especially as an actor and people in this very dangerous area, without just our masks and things; this is something we will face for a very long time, just looking at the nature of the world. But I would say that people must have found their way into the new world of Hollywood with a new definition of cowardice. In a way, bringing together all of humanity, and those who have returned even after epidemics, it was good to see that loyalty has been really good.
Looking ahead, because we’re basically wrapping up Season 3 here and then moving on to Season 4; what more can you say about the next batch of episodes for Hope as they once and for all , Trying to remove malware?
You will see hope in a whole new way. I think fans are going to love hope in a new way. I really had a respect for her, or I guess season 4 is just beginning. I’m really looking forward to people who hope to finally be satisfied with the things they’re avoiding.
