Holy crap! Just finished my first draft of episode #113, the big season finale. It comes in at a robust 57 pages and it is tremendous fun! Twist after turn after surprise leading to the final shocker that will positively blow your minds. Back when I first started developing the show, the show evolved around two colossal bombshell moments: the first being the final scene of episode #101, and the last being the final scene of episode #113. Lots of mini-bombshells along the way but these particular reveals are going to stun and stagger, not only our main characters, but the cast – and, hopefully, you viewers who come along for what promises to be a wild and very enjoyable the ride.
Coincidentally, as I was in the midst of scripting #113, I received some surprise gifts from a couple of cast members:
Whisky marmalade from the notoriously camera-shy Melissa O’Neil.
And these delightfully decadent brownies from Alex Mallari Jr.
Wonder what Anthony Lemke is going to get me? I bet it’s going to be amazing. I can’t wait!
I’ll do another pass on #113 this week, then send it Paul’s way so he can do his pass. After that, it’s in Jay’s hands and, after we implement his notes, the script will finally go out. And I’ll be able to breathe a sigh of relief and focus on other things: editing, prepping, producing, rewriting…and plotting out season 2. Fear not! I know exactly where we’re headed!
Feeling very good. Off to prep some potatoes for tonight’s dinner and, time permitting, maybe even get some reading in. These are titles I’ve been dying to get around to…
So, whatcha reading?
In the case of our cast and crew, it’ll be #113 very soon…
