“Longmire” Season 6 will be the last run of the series. Among the twists that fans are looking forward to learning is the fate of Lou Diamond Phillips’ Henry Standing Bear. Will the character die or survive?
In the last season of “Longmire,” Henry was in grave danger. Malachi Strand (Graham Greene) brought him in such uncomfortable situation, but chances are high that he will survive.
“He’s been on an incredible journey with this character, one that has encompassed a wide array of twists and turns … and also one that isn’t at the end of the road just yet,” Cartermatt reported. Henry has two businesses in mind in the upcoming season.
First, he has to think a way to survive his current predicament. Second, he has to figure out his relationship with Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) and the rest of the characters. Henry is Walt’s best friend and confidante and their friendship was at odds when the former was accused of killing the latter’s wife. Fans are expecting them to move forward and heal in Season 6.
Aside from playing Henry, Phillips announced on Twitter that he will be directing the second episode of the new season. “Ah, but I am here! I have the honor of directing the second episode so I’m cooking my vegetarian DP dinner while we research. #Longmire,” he wrote on his social media account.
This will be a bigger challenge for the actor who will be taking on acting and directing roles at the same time. Although this will be the first directorial episode for Phillips, the job is not entirely new to him. Phillips helmed the 2002-2003 revival of “Twilight Zone.” He also directed “The Outer Limits.”
Aside from Phillips bigger role in “Longmire” Season 6, there are rumors that a wedding or funeral is happening. Adam Bartley who plays as Sheriff Deputy Jim “The Ferg” Ferguson shared a photo on Instagram featuring him and his co-stars Taylor, Katee Sackhoff and Cassidy Freeman.
In the snapshot, Walt was wearing a suit. Meanwhile, Sackhoff and Freeman were wearing a matching black dress. Behind them were a lot of men wearing black suits too. “I think I’m seeing double #Longmire #LongmireS6 #setlife #actorslife #behindthescenes @therealkateesackhoff @jessieleighs22,” Bartley wrote in the caption.
It is still not confirmed if the event is a funeral or wedding, but fans believe that it will be a super-formal gathering. There are speculations that the photo was related to an event that happened earlier in the series or a death that already happened.
“Walts getting married! Tell that music sup we need some Cold Stares on this season!” thecoldstares commented on the photo. “That’s a lot of black suits! Who died?” another user named stratocastecjen wrote.
Whether it is about a wedding or funeral, the teasers are believed to be that fans have not seen in the story plot yet. Aside from this, the new season is expected to feature the different characters out of their comfort zone.
“Longmire” Season 6 is expected to premiere in September.
