Read about the transactional approach,
http://mist.npl.washington.edu/npl/int_rep/tiqm/TI_toc.html. Basically a wave, going forward in time passes through both slits, and hits a point on the screen, which is very likely to be some place on the inference pattern. This causes another wave to go backwards in time. The path of intersection between the forward-time path and backward-time path is what appears to be the path of a photoon particle. It is still random, which slit this path appears to go through.
