During WonderCon, the “S.H.I.E.L.D.” cast spoke about filming the last episode featuring Mockingbird and Lance Hunter.

“I’ve got to say, we all read that last scene for the first time and we were kind of a mess,” series lead Clark Gregg said. “Suddenly saying goodbye to these two amazing people, and amazing actors. It kind of went up another notch of grief because suddenly people you care about are leaving your family, in a real way. Then I look over and I see what Henry [Simmons] is doing and then I’m just, ‘They’ve got to bring in a mop,’ essentially.”

“For me, it was the most personal scene I’ve shot on this show,” said Simmons, whose character, Mack, was shown with eyes brimming with tears in the scene. “Saying goodbye, it wasn’t just my character, that was my… I use that moment for me personally to tell Adrianne and Nick how much I love them and how much I’m going to miss them.”

The CW has released a promo for the next “iZombie” ep, called “Reflections of the Way Liv Used to Be.”

While speaking with CBR, Rose McIver spoke about the challenges she’s faced leading up to the season finale.

“Well, the procedural element isn’t there so much for the final couple of episodes,” said McIver. “It’s a sort of broader-scope that is challenging in other ways for Liv. There are still brains that are consumed, and she still is working in a morgue. She finds herself in some really compromising positions. There’s lots of stunt sequences. We had a lot of fun working with that. The stakes in the last two episodes go through the roof. It’s pretty incredible. I don’t know what Rob [Thomas, the series creator] is going to do with next season.”

“When we had an opportunity to talk about where it was gonna be shot, I said, ‘Why can’t it be Australia?’ They went, ‘Oh, well, it’s a long way,’ and so on but I kept pushing it along and that became a bigger and bigger conversation and it landed here… I couldn’t be happier. For me, living up near the Gold Coast, as well, to be home shooting is huge but a lot of my friends are gonna be on that production. People I’ve known for years.”
