Episode 7: "Solace for Tired Feet"

Can you talk about filming the refrigerator scene?

Charlie: "It was so creepy, but so perfect. I remember reading that part of the script and I just went, 'Oh. This is genius.' A kid was put in a refrigerator on October 14 and he disappeared at that very moment. I love that there's this ritual that these teenagers have in the woods. That set was better than I had imagined it. We were in this state part and there was this refrigerator sitting on this clearing on top of a hill with all of these blue prayer flags and trash strewn through the trees like a fire-pit with lawn furniture. I just went, 'Wow, the space, even though it's a set, it feels like it's been invested with this holy vibe.' "

Max: "It felt holy but also dirty, like if you had a house that someone died in – that house now has an energy to it. The other thing is: What if the refrigerator's a portal to another dimension? I don't know."

Charlie: "You definitely start thinking about that if you're stoned."

Max: "The fridge was just this awesome symbol. And then also just the most teenage way to react to something. When I was a teenager, I wanted to ingest as many different experiences as possible, so to have these kids pushing the boundaries of this show is no surprise."

Charlie: "I just want to defend my character, Scott Frost. Thirty minutes in that refrigerator is a very, very long time! There is something clearly wrong with Jill that she can break the hour-long record."
