Season 2 of Prime Video’s The Wilds introduces us to the opposite half of Gretchen’s (Rachel Griffiths) experiment, The Twilight of Adam. Identical to the Daybreak of Eve topics, the Twilight of Adam members board a aircraft below the idea that they’re heading to a retreat in Hawaii when, in actuality, their aircraft is destined to “crash” and strand them on a abandoned island.
The Twilight of Adam ensemble is brimming with expertise and provides fairly a bit to the present, however a private favourite in that division is the chemistry between Reed Shannon and Tanner Ray Rook as finest mates Scotty and Bo. Bo is quiet and type whereas Scotty’s a giant talker who’s mighty tenacious. Not solely do they stability one another out fairly properly, but it surely’s additionally abundantly clear that their loyalty to 1 one other is very robust and pure, making the duo easy to root for and sometimes a pleasure to look at.

With The Wilds Season 2 now streaming on Prime Video, I acquired the prospect to talk with Shannon and Rook about growing that chemistry. Shannon’s acquired a handful of display screen credit to his title at this level, however The Wilds really marks Rook’s very first starring function in a present, so I requested him for a second on set that proved to him that he was made for this and destined to be an actor. His reply will make any Scotty/Bo fan’s coronary heart soar!
“It’s gonna sound tremendous corny, it’s gonna sound tremendous tacky, however after I did my first scene with Reed, that was actually the time the place I used to be like, ‘Yeah, I’m meant to be right here,’ simply because we fell into our characters really easy, so fast. And we had been hanging out exterior of filming. I needed to pinch myself generally as a result of I’m like, ‘I’m making an important pal and we’re taking part in finest mates on TV? What are you kidding me? That is nice!’”
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for The Wilds, Season 2, Episode 3, “36/14.”]Season 2, Episode 3 does ship some informative and highly effective flashbacks for Scotty and Bo, revealing why they wound up occurring this “retreat,” however if you happen to’re in search of much more backstory on the duo, Rook shared a little bit bit from their discussions about how they could have met:
“We talked about it a little bit bit. Once we first sort of acquired into it, we didn’t actually know the backstory, however I do know that in, I suppose we’re doing spoilers now, in your interview or your interrogation, you speak about double cheese fries at Jerry’s, Marvel/Capcom, so after we sort of figured that out we type of simply figured they most likely met after they had been in elementary faculty over one thing that occurred. However we by no means actually sat down and mentioned, ‘That is what occurred.’”
Reed continued by additional emphasizing the parallels between the particular spark between their characters on the present and between him and Rook in actual life:
“It was type of a factor of like, we all know. We all know what it’s. You’re my roll canine! And that went a good distance as a result of we had been already mates. It was nearly like we partnered up the friendship that was budding in actual life with the friendship that was written.”

That unbreakable connection is on show full drive on the finish of Episode 3, “36/14.” At that time within the season, the present had already properly established that Bo and Scotty would do something for one another, however when Scotty begins demolishing his household’s outdated dwelling after which palms Bo the mallet, there’s a actually robust silent second that makes one marvel, will Bo contribute? Will this tender soul who lives in concern of creating even the tiniest mess take part? It’s a phenomenal beat the place Rook’s efficiency speaks volumes with out even a sew of dialogue. Right here’s what Rook needed to say about tackling Bo’s thought course of in that scene:
“There have been plenty of feelings going by way of each of us. My favourite factor about working with Reed is that we verify in with one another, and we’ll take a look at one another within the eyes after which we’ll go. The second for that, I keep in mind pondering, ‘That is the primary time we’re seeing Bo indignant and that’s a giant deal.’ And I feel that as a result of there are not any phrases, it helps much more. And I like the truth that he doesn’t take the hammer as a result of he’s like, ‘That’s yours.’ He picks up a giant candlestick and simply begins his personal and that’s Bo’s manner of claiming, ‘I’m your dude. Let’s f*ck up this home collectively!’”
