UPDATE: We added another interview with the creators at the very bottom of the post.
For those who haven’t watched 1×09 yet: SPOILER ALERT.
This is the part about Deb from an interview with Adam and Eddy. They said that season 2 is set in 1970 where Deb (the younger one we saw in 1×06) was a counselor. They said they are inspired by Fargo. That show has a different cast in season 2.
We think Dead of Summer started to get you invested into these characters and then in the end they just killed them off the same way a horror movie does. All the deaths in this show were kind of rush, Deb’s death was even worse. Again her death was too violent, and she should have never left the bus. Episode 6 about her was the best one, the story was beautiful. “The Dharma Bum” didn’t really feel like a horror movie, but we guess we need to take the show like that so the finale would be just like a typical horror film. It’s also sad that we had to see a bad Keith. Their love story was amazing.
Anyway this is the interview:
1x09 - Dead of Summer - Deb Carpenter - Elizabeth Mitchell - Projects - Spoilers
