Promo & Post Mortem Interview

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s start with Miranda. What should we take away from the fact that she’s clearly working against Alex in the future? Or are there more twists on this twist we should brace ourselves for?

JOSH SAFRAN: It’s not so much about twists. In the first part of this season, especially in regards to the future storyline, certain people are set on one side or the other and everybody else is in play. The question is, those people in play, what side are they really on? You are meant to take from the end of this episode that Miranda is on the opposite side of Alex. The question becomes, how did we get from there to here for Miranda? We’re watching her in the Farm timeline and seeing that she is sort of trying to save the day, and here she is in the future, on the opposite side. We’ll see how that happens over the course of this season.

We see that she’s in a relationship with Paul (Aaron Lazar), who works for Vice President Claire Haas (Marcia Cross). What can you tell me about him and his connection to Miranda?

They have a private, personal relationship, but a public, professional relationship. It was important to us to not let the tragedy that befell Miranda last year with her son mean that she would shut down. We talked a lot about how most times, tragedies like that, when you’re in a position in the FBI, it actually renews your desire to go further and work harder and actually open up more. So we thought the idea of her having a love interest that was also somebody who was in law enforcement would show that she wasn’t held back from all that happened to her last year.
