In a spoiler-filled interview, the star-slash-creator of the FX comedy and his real-life hype man tells THR how the season finale explored the costs of ambition, the reason behind Dave’s big decision and whether they really killed off that A-list guest star.
If you’re a fan of Dave and you haven’t seen the finale, turn back now. You’re robbing yourself of a twisty, tense thrill ride if you read spoilers before seeing it. If you’re not yet a fan of Dave, go ahead and keep reading, because it might just be the push you need to add the show to your Hulu queue.
With that out of the way, the season three finale begins with Lil Dicky (Dave Burd) in bed with Rachel McAdams, who’s had a three-episode arc playing herself. They’re giggling and talking about their first loves before McAdams asks, “Are we crazy?” Dave replies, “I don’t know, but I would be crazy one million times over if it meant being crazy with you” before it’s revealed to be the “Mr. McAdams” music video shoot. In another scene with McAdams, Lil Dicky raps, “Maybe I’m your Brad Pitt” and actual Brad Pitt pops his head in.
