      I'm not seeing what the difficulty is.  In the dBB interpretation, the wave function takes all three slits into account and defines the usual probability spread on the screen.  The actual photon only goes through one of the slits; but because its behavior is determined by the wave function, it hits the screen at a point determined by the wave function's interference pattern.
