Warning: This story comprises spoilers from the Friday, November 12, finale of I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Didn’t see that coming! The killer that slowly took out all of Lennon’s buddies on I Know What You Did Last Summer was revealed in the course of the Friday, November 12, episode — and never even the actress behind the knife figured it out forward of time.
“I was the first person cast in the show, I’m pretty sure, and that kind of always piqued my interest because normally when they cast the show, they go from the top out. I figured they’d want to find the twins first,” Brianne Tju, who portrayed Margot on the TV adaptation of the ’90s movie, instructed Us Weekly solely. “Margot’s character was more important than I had realized!”
At first, showrunner Sara Goodman didn’t inform Tju, 23, or anybody else within the cast who the killer was. Since they have been all so shut throughout manufacturing in Hawaii, that made sense. However, after they began filming episodes 5 and 6, a “minute detail” made Tju notice that Margot was the one answerable for the deaths that adopted the accident.
“It was the hardest secret for me to keep,” the California native mentioned. “I believe once we started shooting the last block — episodes seven and eight — that [Goodman] told everybody, and then when they were going to know anyway because the episode [scripts] were coming out. I think everyone kind of had the same reaction of like, ‘Oh, my God!’ But then also, ‘Oh yeah, that makes sense!’ … Margot’s definitely a little crazy!”
Underneath that, nevertheless, Tju strongly believes that what Margot wished greater than something is “to love and be loved, especially by Lennon.” Of course, that’s not attainable with Lennon (Madison Iseman) useless and Tju’s character now in a relationship with Allison. Or is it nonetheless attainable?
“Allison is now that new placeholder, which is so complicated and interesting. I genuinely believe Margot has fallen for Allison,” the Scream alum instructed Us. “She chose Margot and Margot has never felt like she’s been chosen before. She was in a very toxic relationship with the original Lennon, and I think Margot, for the first time, by the end of the show, feels like she really has the upper hand here. In her relationship with Lennon, Lennon was kind of the manipulator, the leader of this toxicity that was created between the two of them. It’s kind of unfortunate but Margot now feels like she has the upper hand. She has control over Allison and her love. And Margot will not lose that love. She will do anything for it. I guess Margot’s at a place where she wants that love so badly where she’ll kind of turn a blind eye at Allison’s probably not entirely happy.”
That mentioned, the Light as a Feather actress famous that Allison’s “not just a victim,” since she too is conserving an enormous secret from the world.
“She’s using Margot just as much as Margot is using her. She’s using Margot to keep her secret,” the 47 Meters Down: Uncaged actress mentioned. “In a way, it’s this mutual agreement that they have. I’d like to believe they’re having some good times, but it’s very shrouded in this absolute toxicity.”
The difficult relationship between Lennon/Allison and Margot was the ingredient of the present that sparked Tju’s curiosity a lot, as she hoped to painting the bond in a “relatable and realistic” means.
“So often we see women being petty towards one another, and there is that aspect. That is very real. But there’s also the sense of, like, absolute love,” she shared with Us. (*2*)
She continued, “When you’re dealing with these feelings for the first time, you don’t really have a rule book. You don’t know what you want. You don’t know what’s healthy and what’s not, what’s normal and what’s not. I think we accomplished creating something very messy, but very real.”
Although the present hasn’t but been renewed for a second season, it does finish on a cliffhanger, with Riley (Ashley Moore) — who everybody believes is useless — opening her eyes.
“I don’t want it to be over. I wish I had an answer for the fans [about whether there’s a season 2]. I hope there is,” Tju instructed Us. “I feel like there are a lot of places for these characters and stories to go, especially with Riley very possibly being alive. There’s also the cult aspect that I think is really interesting and would be, I think, really fun to explore in another season. As of now, I don’t know. And very selfishly, I want to know what the heck is happening with Margot and Allison! I need them to blog day in my life videos. I need some closure.”
