I just notices something, the filming thread from other seasons was usually bigger with 2 or more parts, this year, or they are better at hidding the filming, or fans are not so interested in going to location, because on the last season of the show, with only 2 more days of filming, this thread is only at page 89.
There were definitely less fans visiting set on a regular basis, including Kat. A number of them only just returned for the filming of the finale. But I think another thing was they filmed a lot in studio, and were no longer using Steveston as a main location.
