Witwer tells us about how the season is going to end, in terms of the relationships between the roommates. “They’re going to come together and then they’ll fracture a lot more,” he says. In the next episode … it’s almost entirely me and Sally (Meaghan Rath) and Josh (Sam Huntington). You do see the fracture growing bigger. And one of the themes of the third season will be getting the band back together.”
Witwer says he still worries that people will think Aidan has gone too dark. “I still think people might feel like that. If they have a hostility towards Aidan, I mean, who can blame them? The guy is making some poor choices. He’s in a difficult situation. But the thing to remember about this guy is that he was a bastard most of his life. So it’s very easy for him to slip back into that behavior when all of the people around him are influencing him to be that way.”
He gave us a sneak peek at the upcoming episode, saying, “There is a big, ‘we have to save this family’ moment. It’s quite good. I’m very, very happy with it. Basically, if they don’t work together, everyone is going to die,” he laughs. “It was certainly a hell of a lot of fun to shoot because me and Sammy and Meaghan haven’t seen each other as much this season. We got to shoot together every day.” He says they’ve had great chemistry since the first screen test, when they were asked to tone down the chemistry. They’ve even gone to Hawaii on vacation together once shooting wrapped.

We saw Aidan serving alongside Mark Pallegrino’s Bishop in the Revolutionary War during a flashback last season, but there’s another war-time flashback coming up in the Feb. 20 episode and something tells me this one will be quite telling… Also, you’ll never see me argue with seeing these two in period costume.
We chatted with Witwer at the Winter Press tour, where he told us that he’s a bit concerned about what the audience is going to think of where Aidan is going. “I don’t know what they’ll think,” he said. “I mean, Aidan has been a bad guy for most of his history. We’re going to see more of that and where he comes from in. The last time we saw him in a flashback, in the fifties, he was a bit of a thug. He wasn’t always like that. You’ll get to see how he got to that point.”
Bishop (Mark Pellegrino) was killed last season, but Witwer says he’ll be back. He didn’t give details, but he implied that it won’t just be in flashbacks. “He comes back in a really interesting way. I can’t tell you more than that, but trust me, it’s going to be cool.” Witwer was actually heading off to meet Pellegrino and play video games.
