Sounds like they've been keeping the outcome semi-open and have been playing it somewhat by ear based on audience reaction. The only thing I think for sure is that whoever it is
that got shot, actually is
dead. Beyond that, who knows...
Ashley Madekwe (Asheley Davenport) on whether she was surprised who the victim turns out to be in an E Online interview:
"By the time we found out, no, but in the beginning right up until episode 12 or 13, we were kept in the dark," Madekwe tells us. "I think Mike [Kelley], the creator of the show, he didn't know. He kept changing his mind. We're about to show episode 15 and we've only just read episode 17, so we're that close. We're reacting literally to what the audience likes and does not like."
Of the episode, Madekwe couldn't reveal much, but she teases, "It goes all the way back to the beginning with the Fire and Ice party and it's really cool because I thought that we were going to use footage that we had already shown, but we re-shot the whole Fire and Ice party. You see the whole thing from a different perspective and what you think was going on wasn't going on."
