A couple of bits and pieces have emerged online following the pivotal event that took place in “The Bullet That Saved The World”. Spoilers for those yet to see the episode..
Georgina Haig spoke to TV Line about Etta’s “peaceful” death:
“To be loved is the most basic of human needs, after food and shelter,” the Aussie actress continues. “And while she has had support through her life, and she’s had Simon [as a partner], it’s just not the same. She never felt really loved until she reunited with [her parents]. And that’s what makes her death peaceful in a way. She stops fighting [Windmark's thought-reading ] and let’s that contentment wash over her.”
On her reluctance to leave the show:
“I was like, ‘Joel, how about instead of her dying, she just falls unconscious and is locked into a cupboard, and they find her later…?’” she shares with a laugh. “I didn’t want to die, because it was so awesome being on the show.”
A snippet from EW on his what Haig had on her Etta to-do list:
I wasn’t ready. And you can bet Georgina Haig wasn’t ready either. In fact, she still had a lengthy list of to-dos! “I would have loved to touch on the Walter relationship a little more because Walter is such a beautiful character, and Etta warmed to him so quickly. I think she would have just adored getting to be around him more and learn from him,” she says. But there’s always a chance for a return, right? According to Haig, that seemed to be the sentiment on set when she left. And in retrospect, she sees a crucial plot point that could signal a return. “They kind of suggest that maybe I was going to teach my parents how to not be read by Observers, so I imagine if I wouldn’t have died I would have started teaching them,” she says.
