ALL IS CALM AT LAKE STILLWATER…TOO CALM IN AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF ‘DEAD OF SUMMER,’ ON AUGUST 16
With the horrors of last night behind them, the counselors of Camp Stillwater finally feel at ease. Maybe too at ease in “The Devil Inside,” an all-new episode of “Dead of Summer,” airing TUESDAY, AUGUST 16 (9:00 – 10:00 p.m. EDT), on Freeform, the new name for ABC Family.
As Deb, Deputy Sykes and the counselors all try to come to grips with what took place at Camp Stillwater, a sense of calm finally comes over the camp. But with so much having taken place, can the summer really be saved? Meanwhile, flashbacks feature Jessie.
Guest stars include Tony Todd as The Tall Man, Andrew J. West as Damon Crowley and Sharon Leal as Renee.
“The Devil Inside” is written by Richard Naing & Steven Canals and directed by Mick Garis.
The series stars Elizabeth Mitchell (“Lost,” ”The Purge: Election Year”) as Deborah “Deb” Carpenter, Elizabeth Lail (“Once Upon a Time”) as Amy Hughes, Zelda Williams (“Teen Wolf”) as Drew Reeves, Mark Indelicato (“Ugly Betty”) as Blair Ramos, Alberto Frezza (“Charlie’s Angels”) as Deputy Garrett Sykes, Eli Goree (“The 100”) as Joel Goodson, Ronen Rubinstein (“Orange Is the New Black”) as Alex Powell, Amber Coney (“Class”) as Carolina “Cricket” Diaz and Paulina Singer (“Gotham”) as Jesse Tyler.

In the past five episodes it was so confusing because she looked warm and adorable but she had this ambiguous side, especially because it always felt like she was manipulating Joel for some reason. After last week’s episode we know that any weird behaviour we’ve seen till now was only in Joel’s head because of Holyoke.
It’s exciting to know what kind of relationship Deb and Keith (Dylan Neal) have.
[SPOILER ALERT! We don’t want to spoil you, it’s just a theory but if we are right it could be a spoiler]
We had this idea of him being her turning point.
He told her once: “Life is a series of moments, moments that don’t happen to you but moments that, if you are brave enough, you can create.” and she told Joel that the box with his book inside reminds her not to give up in her dreams and that she didn’t become the person she wanted to be.
We think that she met Keith again after she became someone she didn’t want to be and then something happened that make her decide to start all over again (to create those moments) and that’s why she re-opened Camp Stillwater, probably because it’s where she met Keith for the first time?!
From the on-set photos we found out that Deb was married and Liz said that she got into a marriage and a situation she didn’t like. From her outfit she looks so different from the character we saw at the camp and she probably has a job she doesn’t even like. Our theory is that Keith made her realized that.
[SPOILER ALERT! ]
We are so excited about “The Dharma Bums” and can’t wait to see what it will definitely be another outstanding performance of this incredibly talented actress.
Don’t miss Dead of Summer at 9/8c on Freeform.
They posted this on the official facebook page. So cute!

There’s another video interview from Comic Con. Nothing new beside the beginning of the video since it’s the same table of the previous ones, but she’s always so cute!
Elizabeth Mitchell is used to playing mysterious characters, but camp director Deb on Dead of Summer seems like she could be hiding some especially deadly secrets. After prominent roles on genre shows like Lost, Mitchell knows a thing or two about mysteries that live in the woods. But is she really ready for the supernatural scares of Camp Stillwater?
We’ll soon be learning more about Deb in her flashback episode “The Dharma Bums,” (obviously a Lost refernce) but Elizabeth Mitchell spilled a bit about her character at San Diego Comic Con.
Watch the video below to see what she had to say about working with showrunners Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz again, what she’s excited for fans to see, and what to expect from Deb’s flashback episode:
- She talks about the fifth episode, where we learn about the reality of her relationship with Joel.
- We’re now going to see Deb, rather than the perception of her.
- The Deb episode is coming up and it was highly enjoyable for her to shoot. There was a sweetness to Deb that she hasn’t played before.
- Eddie and Adam (the executive producers) were the reason she got involved in the show since they wrote a character for her and offered it to her.
- “I never know if I’m happy or unhappy with a role until I’m done.”
- She found her character in Lost really odd and then as she went along she realized she really liked the character.
- She didn’t know what the arc of her character would be on Dead of Summer but she guessed and wasn’t wrong.
- She doesn’t like to play things too on-the-nose, she likes to play things more subtle.
- Mitchell is excited for fans to see Deb’s backstory. She thinks a lot of her mom when playing this character because they were coming of age at the same time.
- Cricket and Drew’s backstories were her favorites to watch. She talks about Zelda Williams’ commitment to doing a good job with the character and her attention to detail.
- Mitchell talks about how the crew guys didn’t recognize her in the late 60s Deb outfits.
What do you think? Are you excited to learn more about Deb? What do you think we’ll learn in her episode? Sound off in the comments!

There is a new and so interesting interview with Elizabeth about Dead of Summer. We just can’t wait for the next episode, we have already a lot of theories in our minds and this part of the interview is soooooooo sad! [SPOILERS ALERT!]
Deb ended up in a situation and a marriage where she was like, ‘How did I get here? This isn’t anyone who I wanted to be. Now I’m here and I don’t know how to not be this person anymore.’”
It’s one of the reasons why when everything is going horribly wrong, she goes, ‘Everything is fine, it has to be fine, this is my new road, I’ve cut off the other road. I can’t go back that way!’ There’s sadness there because she was trying to go back and be who she wanted to be, and so far has been unable to. It’s a bit of a tragedy, of course.
Read the full interview below.

Freeform aired a never before seen look behind the scenes of Dead of Summer last week before episode 5. We were able to get and upload the BTS videos with Elizabeth from 1×01, 1×03 and 1×04 into our video archive. She is not in 1×02, that’s why the clip is missing. Enjoy! 🙂
