Aaron Stanford on the series finale
In an interview with Screen Rant, Stanford spoke about shooting the finale, “Obviously you’re always happy when you can tell a story completely from beginning to end and tell it in a satisfying way where you’re able to make yourself happy and make the audience happy. It’s gratifying to be able to do something like that and see something through from beginning to end. On the bitter side, you’re saying goodbye to your family”.
Terry Matalas on what he expected from the ending
In an interview with Syfy Wire, Terry talked about what he wanted from the ending of the show. “I always knew what I wanted the last scene to be, in the series. So [we were] just kind of leading up to there. After season 2, I came in with a plan for seasons 3 and 4. I said, ‘Here’s where we’re going’. We had a room that was wall-to-wall giant white erase boards. We know we’ve gotta get here, we know we want to do this, that, and the other thing, so let’s plan for this. Let’s do this right.”
