Haven returns to Syfy on January 17 to wind down the third season of the supernatural mystery series with Emily Rose, Eric Balfour, and Lucas Bryant.
Although Haven was delayed in December after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook, the Stephen King based series finally resumes the serialized story of the strange happenings within Haven, Maine.
When Haven fans last saw Emily Rose and Eric Balfour back in December, Audrey Parker and Duke Crocker were closing in on the Bolt Killer while Duke and Nathan continued their quest to save Audrey from her impending date (and fate) at the mysterious barn.
When Haven returns for the two-hour finale and the back-to-back episodes “Reunion” and “Thanks for the Memories”, season long questions will be answered before more questions arise before Season 4.
Ahead of the Season 3 finale, The Deadbolt spent some time with Emily Rose and Eric Balfour to learn more about the barn and how Duke has changed.
THE DEADBOLT: Emily, what’s it been like to learn the significance of the barn in relation to the challenge of understanding the timeline of Audrey, Lucy and Sarah?
EMILY ROSE: It’s been really fascinating because this barn has grown some prominence as the season has gone along. I think that’s probably the exciting thing about the last episode: how close we get to unearthing this mythical sort of building and what is. I still don’t even quite understand everything that it is. But it’s been really neat.
THE DEADBOLT: That must be part of the fun, too?
ROSE: You know, it’s one of those things you sort of dance around for a long time in each of the seasons and then you finally go, “Oh, this is cool. We’re actually going to go there. This is really interesting.” So it’s been really fun for me.
It’s been fun that it feels in way like a portal in some manners of the word; kind of like the mystery of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe growing up. It’s like this really interesting thing. I’ll be really fascinated to find out more about it hopefully as the seasons go on.
THE DEADBOLT: Eric, since Duke’s been more of a good guy this season, how do you see him now as compared to the first two seasons and where things will wind up this season?
ERIC BALFOUR: Wow, that’s an interesting question. I don’t know that Duke is more of a good guy this season. I think he is being more true to his nature this season and it has been a really fun dichotomy to play. The writers did a really great job of writing.
But it’s interesting because I think Duke always had a very clear code of honor which made him fun because he was compromising. You know, uncompromising people are sort of easy to like.
But I always think there is going to be a struggle in Duke, and I think that’s what’s going to continue to make him interesting. I think he’s always going to struggle with his good nature because of the things that have happened to him in his life and the character that has been created and the back story that he has. I think there’s always going to be a struggle. I know that frozen yogurt is better for me but I still really like the taste of ice cream.
The third season finale of Haven airs Thursday, January 17 at 8/7c.
