The actor who plays the grown-up Misty Quigley spoke to Variety about the filming and revealed that he was very emotional, both the day it happened and the day after when, in a moment that feels like it might have been destined by the spirit of the queen of the horns. – she ran into Lewis at random. “Those were really hard scenes and really disturbing,” he told Variety. “I ran into Juliette the next day at the airport and we both started crying again.”
In typical prestige television fashion, full of twists, the character’s death was not revealed to the cast until fairly late in the season’s production run. “I didn’t know until shortly before we filmed the episode,” Ricci admitted. She said that the cast, which also includes Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Simone Kessell and Lauren Ambrose, loves Lewis and has a family bond that made the death scene more difficult. “We’ve all been through a lot on the show and we’ve gotten so close and we fight and we make up and we love each other and we’re like sisters,” Ricci said.
Although the reaction viewers see from survivors watching the episode is as shocking as it is upsetting, Ricci said the shoot was “very emotional.” “I think we were all very upset and sad that Natalie was dying,” he told the outlet, “and it was hard to film.” The sequence seen by the audience is heartbreaking enough on its own, as the women gather around Natalie as Misty realizes what she’s done and confirms that it’s too late to save her friend. (Luciano Leroux) and young Natalie (Sophie Thatcher) sit next to Nat on an empty plane and encourage her to let death in.
