For the 3rd consecutive year, I caught iZombie filming scenes for their season finale. For the 3rd consecutive year, it included Robert Buckley at the set. Its weird for a guy who probably is 3rd or 4th in screen time, I always catch up to him in the finale filming.
On this day, in early January, just after their winter break, the cast, and crew were in a snow covered Oppenheimer Park in the Downtown Eastside immediate across the street from where I used to live to film scenes for the season finale, directed by Dan Etheridge. Since episode 12 is titled "Looking For Mr Goodbrain Part I", I am going out on a limb here, assuming this will be "Part II" but I dont know that for sure. Of course, the prior times being the season 1 finale scene when he blows up Meat Cute Then last year when he, Rose, Rahul and Malcolm shot scenes at the Vancouver Art Gallery for the Major getting arrested and released scenes.
This time Robert, as Major Lilywhite was on set shooting a scene as a member of the Fillmore Graves team. He was in Oppenheimer Park handing out what seemed to be zombie rations to a horde of zombies that seem to be patiently waiting for their rations.
While that scene was shooting, I also was Bryce Hodgson as Don E. shooting a few feet away with scenes where he seemed to be running thru asking zombies there if they wanted to try samples of what looked like candies, but we all know whats in them obviously. In a different "I always seem to catch" scenario... I have seen Bryce twice in my life now. Once at this set, and once while he was shooting The Killing, (in fact I didnt even know his name yet when I wrote the post) literally 1/2 block from that location. Pretty random to catch someone filming in practically the same locale twice on 2 different shows several years apart.
After shooting those scenes, they then shot one more scene.... one that really makes you wonder what & where the show might go with season 4 since this is clearly the finale..... an angry mob of humans storms the Fillmore Graves vehicles armed with bats, pitchforks & anything else they can manage.... how does Fillmore Graves react to this??? Well, I cat tell you that.... because I didnt see it.
iZombie airs on Tuesday nights on The CW.
