Eastin: Especially at the beginning, it's a very big deal to her. She'll get into the action more as she fights for Peter. Mozzie, June, Diana ... especially when they come to the aid of Peter, everybody is motivated to jump in.
THR: What are the big questions that you're looking to answer or explore in season five?
Eastin: One thing I'd like to do is turn the rules back closer to the pilot, which was really going back to the initial core of the Peter-Neal relationship. We've really pulled them far upfield. So we're going to try and re-set that, that's what I'm looking forward to. You've got a lot of questions in the air here, so it's a matter of working through those and trying to figure out how we can restore order to the universe. Peter has gone so far as to cross over some gray areas and into some actual dark ones. For me, being able to move the dynamics of the two guys back to something closer to the pilot, where Peter is more the taskmaster and Neal is trying his best to be good when the circumstances around him aren't allowing him to do that. Mozzie (Willie Garson) and Elizabeth have a pretty good relationship now, and I don't want to destroy that. The real key in the next season, as usual, the show works the best when Neal has something going on that Peter doesn't quite trust. The more Peter puts his career in jeopardy for Neal, it makes it more difficult for him to sneak around Peter's back. I have a really good idea on how to restore that to the show.
