"Haven" season 4 premiered Friday, Sept. 13, and "Fallout" raised a question: Is Nathan Audrey's true love? Lucas Bryant and Eric Balfour both chimed in on the topic when talking to press about this season.
In the "Haven" season 4 premiere, Jennifer explained that Howard told Audrey there was something she could do end the Troubles forever: kill the person she loves the most. So Nathan's new plan was to let Audrey kill him. However, Duke raised a point: "That means for the Troubles to end, you have to be Audrey's true love. Are you sure about that?" "I've never been more about anything in my entire life," Nathan replied.
"How could you even suggest that I couldn't possibly be the one?" Bryant asked when that question was asked during a call with reporters. "[Duke] is wrong. Hypothetically, if that were to happen, then we would hypothetically get to see exactly how Nathan deals with that in the hypothetical world. …If the writers were going to explore that possibility, that would be very interesting. I hope they do, and they hypothetically might in some episode, hypothetically around 4 or 5 or 6."
As for Balfour, he called the Nathan/Audrey/Duke love triangle "pretty magical" and "very sincere." "At the beginning of this season, the questions of destiny and true love really become a huge factor in this show," he shared, adding that the answer to the question of Audrey's true love "is something that's going to really reveal itself over the course of the season," all the way up to the finale.
Though Nathan is certain he is Audrey's true love, could it be Duke? Balfour also raised another good question: "If [Duke] even could have a relationship with Audrey, could he handle it? Would he really want it? Is he meant to be in a relationship? There are people in this world who, they're meant to be alone, they're meant to be on their own. That's something that I think Duke struggles with."
But is Duke questioning Nathan for his own selfish reasons? They do have a complicated past, but Balfour admits, "as much as he may not want to admit it, Duke truly does care about Nathan and wants him to be okay and to be happy, but that may come at a price."
Finally, Balfour teased, "There is the idea of the greatest good. What is the greatest good? And that's a question that all three of our heroes or main characters or whatever you want to call them are going to have to answer. And they're constantly battling their own desires with that of this family, as it were."
Of course, first they need to get Audrey back, and right now, she's living as Lexie DeWitt, with no memory of who she is or the town of Haven. Check out what Bryant had to say on that subject here.
"Haven" season 4 airs Fridays at 10 p.m. on Syfy. Who do you think is Audrey's true love?
