HAVEN: A Truly Terrifying Trouble Terrorizes One of Our Heroes

Season 4 of Syfy’s drama series HAVEN has brought all kinds of surprises: multiple Troubles, morphing Troubles, and one devious newcomer known as William (Colin Ferguson).  We all thought we knew the rules of Troubles. But we were wrong.  Just as soon as William popped through the portal door, he was stirring up all kinds of trouble and giving people new Troubles – ones that neither they, nor their ancestors had before.  William proved time and time again that he could create a new Trouble and infect anyone he wanted.  He also showed that he could also change a person’s Trouble, causing it to manifest at an earlier age or have a wider range than before.  William is literally a Trouble-maker.  Then we found out that he is but one-half of a Trouble-making pair:  Audrey (Emily Rose) is his split-apart – meaning anything that happens to William, happens to her, which was shockingly proven when Nathan (Lucas Bryant) shot William and Audrey developed a gunshot wound too.  This has made it exceedingly difficult to get rid of him.  Our HAVEN heroes cannot simply kill him, as much as they desperately want to.

That leaves them in a huge conundrum:  how to solve a problem like William?  Worse yet, the longer he’s around, the more he seems to bring out the worse in Audrey.  He’s not just a thorn in her side, he’s actually bringing to the surface memories of her former existence – the original Audrey, the one who may or may not have relished cursing the residents of Haven with the Troubles, one-by-one over a century ago.

HAVEN: Who Is the Real Audrey Parker?

Try as I might, one nagging feeling has been tickling my brain all season: this is not the Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) that we know and love.  At first, she did not even try to be.  She was Lexie Dewitt (Emily Rose).  Then after Jennifer (Emma Lahana) opened the portal door back to Haven, Maine, Lexie reverted back to Audrey.   Her personality in the barn as Lexie was stripped away and revealed the person that she wanted to be:  Audrey.

HAVEN Central: Emily Rose and Colin Ferguson Dish on the Lexie/William Relationship

Season 4 of HAVEN has fractured the world we know it as our beloved hero Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) is living her life as Lexie Dewitt, completely unaware of her prior lives as Audrey, Lucy and Sarah.  Perhaps just in the nick of time, a mysterious newcomer William (Colin Ferguson) finds Lexie and tries to tell her about her other identities and life in Haven.  But just what is the relationship between William and Lexie or her former self, that is a huge mystery.  In a recent press conference call, star Emily Rose and guest-star Colin Ferguson shed some light on who Lexie and William are and what their future looks like.

HAVEN Central: Eric Balfour Teases How the Duke/Nathan/Audrey Relationships Change in Season 4

Comic Con Quickie: Eric Balfour and EP Sam Ernst Tease HAVEN Season 4

After that infamous barn disappearing trick at the end of Season 3, we all suspected that there would be some big changes ahead in Season 4 of HAVEN.  After last week’s premiere episode, we have now see a glimpse of some of those changes.  Audrey is now Lexie (Emily Rose) and does not remember her former life as Audrey — nor the two men that she grew to love and they loved her in return.  In addition, Duke (Eric Balfour) found himself stepping out of the barn as it disintegrated around him and time had passed significant for everyone while he thought it was but mere moments.  Six months had gone by in the blink of an eye.  As Duke struggled to catch up on all that had passed and changed in his absence, we saw many of our heroes reunited again — but with Audrey/Lexie still missing.

In a recent press conference call, star Eric Balfour gallantly shared a few clues about what lies ahead in Season 4 for the complicated relationships between Audrey, Duke and Nathan (Lucas Bryant). [Read more…]

HAVEN Preview: Season 4 Brings More “Troubles,” Turbulence and Terror

Based on the Stephen King novella “The Colorado Kid,” HAVEN is a series exploring the darker side of a small town infested with supernatural problems.  Past seasons have introduced average everyday people with very unique abilities — for many these abilities are more trouble than a blessing.  Thus, they are known as “troubled.”  Every 27 years or so, the “troubles” seem to return to plague Haven and all within its borders.  Not everyone is cursed, but all who reside there have felt the presence of the “troubles” and everyone looks forward to the day when they disappear again.  As was revealed in Season 3, Audrey Parker is the key to getting rid of the “troubles” and giving the afflicted relief — it’s Audrey’s capacity to love that provides a protective loving blanket over Haven for a time, until she must return to recharge on the love she finds there.

HAVEN Central: Eric Balfour Teases Season 4 and the Search for Duke on HAVEN

The journey of Duke Crocker has not been an easy one.  He went from being a carefree, happy-go-lucky smuggler to being one of the most cursed men in all of HAVEN. Not exactly plagued by one of HAVEN’s notorious “troubles,” Duke found out that his family’s legacy is that he can kill someone to save their family line from their “troubles.”  Yet the thought of killing a person to save their family from a dreaded “trouble” is still not the kind of legacy Duke ever imagined.  He would have preferred a treasure chest or even a cache of weaponry.  But instead, he has this unique ability that turned him into the one thing he never wanted: a killer.  Even to save lives and guarantee a better life for those left behind, Duke has found himself thrust amongst HAVEN’s “troubles” in a way he never imagined or wanted.  It makes him both a unique ally and a foe.  It is all a matter of which path he chooses.

HAVEN Central: Richard Donat and John Dunsworth Teasingly Talk Season 4 of HAVEN

One thing is for certain, when you talk with Richard Donat and John Dunsworth, you never know who you are going to be talking with. As long-accomplished actors, both can seamlessly switch in and out of character, and it makes for a hilarious interview. (If you watch the video interview below, you will see exactly what I mean!) One of the funny responses was to the question about whether we will be seeing Dave and Vince Teague interact with HAVEN’s new characters Jennifer (Emma Lahana) and Wade Crocker (Christian Camargo) and John was quick to quip, “No hanging out with Crockers!” While they do not want anything to do with the nefarious side of Duke Crocker’s (Eric Balfour) family and their dark legacy, Richard and John were happy to drop clues about Jennifer’s curious role and how Episode 410 will introduce a big surprise. They also shared that Dwight’s (Adam Copeland) plans disrupt a few of the Teagues’ plans, and that unsurprisingly the brothers may be on opposite sides yet again this season. One of the strengths and curiosities to the Teague brothers is how their many, many secrets have tied them together while they still work from different sides of the HAVEN-world. [Read more…]

HAVEN Central: We Shine the Spotlight on Visual Effects Supervisor Kris Wood

A supernatural series like HAVEN requires stellar visual effects to integrate into its visual look to keep viewers engaged in the outrageous and unbelievable stories that it weaves each week.  Fans must believe that the impossible is possible and that in the HAVEN world, literally anything can happen — from earthquakes to meteorites to sudden tsunamis in the sleepy, “troubled” world of Haven, Maine.  In an exclusive interview, visual effects supervisor Kris Wood shared what he loves about working on HAVEN and what unique challenges it poses to create all those marvelous visual effects.

HAVEN Central: Adam Copeland Talks Season 4 and the Fun of Filming HAVEN

As a former WWE wrestling champion, Adam Copeland is tickled to his toes that his role as Dwight Hendrickson has become a larger part of the story and vital role on HAVEN.  Dwight is no longer just the “trouble”-plagued town’s “cleaner,” he is one of the town’s heroes.  In the absence of Duke (Eric Balfour), Audrey (Emily Rose) and even Nathan (Lucas Bryant), it is Dwight who steps up to keep the peace and help out.  Having been one the keepers of the town’s secrets and knowing how to keep a lid on “troubles” from boiling over, Dwight is the natural choice.  So the expanding role is a source of delight for co-star Adam Copeland, who was bumped up to series regular as of the show’s fourth season.
