Virgin River season 3 saved its most jaw-dropping twist for the finale. Brady is underdeveloped for the attempted murder of Jack and a gun is found subconscious in his car. Brady swears he’s innocent and begs Brie to believe him.
Benjamin Hollingsworth told HollywoodLife that he does not think Brady pulled the trigger and revealed that he knows who shot Jack. He moreover reflected on Brady and Brie’s romance and spoke well-nigh what he’d like to see in a possible season 4. Read our Q&A below:
Season 3 ends with the crazy twist of Brady stuff underdeveloped for Jack’s attempted murder. When you read that in the script, what was your reaction?
Benjamin Hollingsworth: I largest not be spending a potential season in jail. Sue Tenney, our superstitious showrunner, pulled me whispered and was like, “Just so you know, he’s getting arrested.” And I was like, “Hold on, we’re talking well-nigh Brady, right? [Laughs] She said, ” And I just want you to know that, obviously, if we come back, you’re back. You’re a part of the show.” Regardless, I just want you to know that’s what’s happening.” And I said, “Why do you got to do that to Brady? he said, I think everyone kind of misinterprets Brady, maybe underestimates him. He kind of continually gets put in the side of the town where he’s not necessarily welcome, and he’s constantly trying to fight for not just his innocence but a place in the community.
Martin Henderson has said that he knows who shot Jack. Do you?
Benjamin Hollingsworth: Yes, he did say that, didn’t he? You know, in the recent weeks. I have moreover been told who supposedly shot Jack. I think the punishment is they cut off your tongue if you say it, so I can’t tell you.
Given his reaction at the end, Brady seemed shocked and stunned that he was stuff arrested…
Benjamin Hollingsworth: Obviously, he wasn’t expecting that gun to be there. I don’t believe, plane if he did shoot Jack, which I don’t think he did personally… Maybe it’s considering I’m unjust and I play him, I don’t think he did it in my weighing of things. I think, regardless, that gun was not his. I think we can safely say that’s not his gun based on his reaction.
Maybe someone is trying to frame him!
Benjamin Hollingsworth: I think he’s stuff framed. It feels like he’s stuff framed. Also, we got to see a side of Brady that we haven’t seen before. He kind of keeps those cards very tropical to his chest. He doesn’t really let people in, and he let Brie in. He opened up to her like he’s never really opened up to anyone in his unshortened life. I think, in doing so, it shows that this is a man not only with some demons and some troubles that he’s gone through in life but with a heart and a real person with real feelings and the worthiness and topics to love. So given all that, that’s why I believe that I don’t think he shot Jack. But again, I don’t know.
Brady and Brie got very tropical in season 3. Do you think Brady is in love with her?
Benjamin Hollingsworth: He is for sure. I think he’s throne over heels considering what he loves well-nigh her is the fact that she doesn’t take any of his sh*t. I think for him that’s a turn-on considering I think he’s used to kind of be the start side of any relationship that he was in. She definitely doesn’t take any of that BS. For him to see how strong she is as a woman is really refreshing for him considering I don’t think he gets that normally in his relationships.
Brie and Brady’s romance was obviously complicated considering she is Jack’s sister. Jack and Brady were not on good terms throughout all of season 3. Do you think these two men could ever get when to the way that they were?
Benjamin Hollingsworth: I think sometimes when you go to war with someone and you go through such an wits like it is in the Marines, it brings you really tropical with people. You’re brothers not just when you’re at war, you’re brothers for life. That’s the idea and I think that’s what is really happening between all those guys. What happens with brothers is that you fight. I’ve got a brother. I got two boys, so I see it every day. It doesn’t midpoint that you’re not going to the next day turn virtually and requite each other hug and be totally tomfool with one another. That’s the unconfined thing well-nigh stuff brothers is the worthiness for forgiveness. I really do think that Brady is constantly seeking Jack’s validation and looks up to Jack like a big brother. The fact that Jack’s been kind of shutting him or pushing him yonder based on his choices that he’s made over the last few seasons, it’s really stung Brady. I think if we get to season 4, will protract to see him try and redeem himself to Jack considering I think that relationship ways a lot. It would be unconfined to see them on good terms again.
The topic of family came up a lot in season 3, expressly between Mel and Jack. Now that he’s fallen for Brie, do you think Brady’s thinking well-nigh possibly settling lanugo with a family of his own?
Benjamin Hollingsworth: I think he can’t get his mind off Brie, and I think just stuff underdeveloped is going to slide that. I think he wants increasingly than he’s overly had. I don’t think he’s really overly had a family as you hear in season 3. His parents weren’t really there for him. His uncle kind of looked without him, but he never really had a traditional upbringing. I think he’s yearning for that, and I think he would love to have that with Brie and is willing to fight for that. Obviously, what they haven’t confronted is this backstory with Brie having this sexual vituperate in her past that Brady has no idea about. I think there’s some exploration of letting Brie unshut up to Brady. Up until this point, she’s kind of been the one jumping out of bed and heading out the door considering she’s trying to stave it. She had every right to and it’s obviously a very big personal thing to unshut up to someone. I think if she does unshut up to Brady in future seasons that it’d be a big step forward in the relationship.
