Tim Rozon Talks SurrealEstate Season 2 + a Preview of “Dearly Departed” 

Tim Rozon Talks SurrealEstate Season 2 + a Preview of “Dearly Departed”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

With just two episodes left this season, SurrealEstate is entering the home stretch of its second season. Among the many treats of the first season was the guest starring appearance by Tim Rozon’s Wynonna Earp co-star Melanie Scrofano, who also stuck around to direct a couple of episodes. This week, she’s not onscreen but she is back to direct the last block of two episodes written by Gillian Müller and series creator George R. Olson. And the first episode of that block, airing Wednesday, features yet another Earper onscreen, Varun Saranga.

In “Dearly Departed,” The Roman Agency takes on marriage counseling as only they can when a prospective client has a Swayze-esque problem on her hands. Luke and Lomax tag team that assignment while Augie enlists Rochelle on how to get Susan out of her house now that Zooey has reported back what she found — and Luke’s newly re-activated Hail Mary attempt brought no joy. Phil gets to digging into property records to find out what exactly gives at Chateau Ireland and Zooey gets to flex more of her skill set working the phones.

Also, the gang is thrilled that Luke has his gift back, which comes in very handy on multiple fronts. Look for a handful of fun Earper Easter eggs throughout. It’s a funny, frightening, poignant episode that dovetails nicely with the themes of love, loss, and what you do and don’t get over explored last week.

When I chatted with Tim Rozon earlier this month, we talked about last week’s powerhouse scenes with Jennifer Dale as Luke reconnected with his mom, orchestrating this week’s Earper reunion, and adding Elena Juatco to the team.

“[Reuniting Luke and his mom] was really special to do, for many reasons, for Jennifer and myself. And since Season 1, I wanted to get into that. Luke’s past was very important for me to try and pull back some layers and understand why he is the way he is. Where did those wounds come from,” he says.

“And I do love that it’s after talking to his mom that immediately, the gift comes back. [The opening scene tonight] with the young girl on the street corner is just a wonderful little scene. Such a small little scene, but a heartbreaking, wonderful moment. It’s great that we get to do all these things as an actor on one project.”

Rozon was thrilled to get bring in a couple of Earpers this season, too. “Selfishly, I got to work with Varun Saranga again, which, I may or may not have pushed for,” he laughs. “And I loved [his character’s] comic book room. There were all kinds of Easter eggs that I may or may not have been involved in, in one way or another. It was super exciting to get the trio together.”

This season, the show seamlessly welcomed Lomax into the fold, and Rozon says having Elena Juatco join the cast was equally great. “[Lomax] is accepted immediately. It’s that found family thing. She just fits in with our family. She kind of didn’t fit in where she was and [here], she said, ‘Oh, I can be myself and I can fit in here.’ And there’s a level of trust that’s immediate,” he explains.

“And the cool thing is, it was kind of the same with Elena. She was pregnant, and she was a little nervous about that and [I told her], ‘You’re on the perfect set. Each one of us has been at this phase already.’  It was amazing, because if we do have a Season 3, [Sarah, Adam, Elena, and I] have all got babies now.”
