Denis Leary was talking about the emotions behind the final day of shooting for 'Rescue Me' on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), when he may have inadvertently let loose with a hint about the series finale.
!!!POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!!
"The final scene that we shot, without giving anything away, is a funeral scene," he said. That this scene exists has been seen already in previews for the finale, airing Wednesday at 10PM ET on FX. It's the next line that may be telling. Leary concluded his thought, "I was off-camera that day."
Read into it what you will, but it could be a hint that Tommy Gavin may not survive the series. Or it could just be that he didn't go to this particular funeral for whatever reason, or that maybe they just scheduled shooting so that Leary wouldn't have to be in front of the camera on the last day of shooting.
