[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] Cardinal stars Billy Campbell and Karine Vanasse discuss their characters and their four seasons on the series, and we preview the next episode, “Adele.”
Season 4 of Cardinal digs into its investigation this week with a look at the habitual victim stalking through the eyes of the as-yet-unnamed killer (played by Currie Graham). He watches and waits and we know no good can come from it. The kicker is that Graham has historically been very adept at playing charming and smarmy — smarming, if you will, but here he’s just creepy enough to be unsettling.
While that angle of the story gets some exposure, we also follow Cardinal and Delorme working the case, which means attending Robert’s funeral with a secondary agenda. Delorme continues weighing her professional and personal trajectory. An unlikely, but friendly, blast from her past helps her crystallize how far she’s come since Season 1. It also leaves a tantalizing, unspoken, “If then, now what…” question to linger.
It’s just one of the many moments that remind us how very good Billy Campbell and Karine Vanasse are in these roles. In the second part of our interviews, they talk about getting to build that onscreen relationship, and what the show has meant to them.
