Promo & Post Mortem Interviews



How does this impact the rest of the firehouse?

Well, the way Jimmy was reacting was causing waves in the house and so as people have come to know over the last four or five years, it’s a very tight-knit group in the house who don't react well to waves. So I think it gets to the point in the house where everybody feels like what Jimmy's doing is not to the benefit of the house or to the CFP. I think everybody understands why he's doing it, you know it's an emotional reaction and when Jimmy does leave, there's sadness about what happened to him but ultimately its for the benefit of the house who can then heal for what happened and reunite with each other.

You said at the beginning of the season that you weren't planning on introducing any new characters. Now that you're starting to get into the second half of season five, is that still the plan?

We feel pretty good about where things are. We're really happy about Dawson being back on the ambulance, and building that relationship between Brett and Dawson. We really like what Miranda [Rae Mayo]'s doing with her character. I think as of now there are no plans to shake things up too much. We know we've done that a lot in the past. We feel really good about where everything is right now so for now, no there are no plans to make any big changes.

Now that you're further into the season, is there anything else you can tease about the 100th episode and what that will entail?

Its an episode that Derek and I wrote, there's a lot going on in terms of personal storylines. Casey and Dawson are up against stuff with Louie and their own relationship; it all kind of comes to a head. Casey and Dawson I guess would be the main storyline. We've been playing with their relationship for 99 episodes up until this one. Casey coming back at the end of last season was something that we all really wanted to do. We know the audience loves them as a couple, we love them as a couple. We've had them engaged, almost married, we've really bounced around quite a bit with them and made their relationship as difficult as possible so I think the 100th episode is a time to solidify some things between the two of them, but that does not mean at all that they just go quietly into the night as a couple. There's a twist that comes at the end of the 100th episode that throws everything into a tailspin in terms of them and their family dynamics. So while some things do get solidified between them, like is the norm for Casey and Dawson, it's never easy and it certainly won't be in this episode either.

TVLINE | What drove the decision to say goodbye to Jimmy?

We’ve wrestled with this over the last four years, in terms of threats and real dangers to people in the firehouse. There are times when people get injured, or really bad things happen to them, and we don’t follow through on that, and sometimes we feel like we have to pull the trigger on certain things. With Jimmy’s character, it just felt like he needed to stand up for what he believed in, but Boden needed to stand up for what he believed in, and those two things couldn’t live together. It was driven by the story and who the characters have evolved into.

TVLINE | What kind of discussions did you have with Steven about his character’s trajectory?

Speaking of trajectories, he’s certainly on his way up as an actor, on his way up as a leading man. I have no doubt that someday he will be the lead on his own show. The discussions with Steven were nothing but pleasant. He was a total professional about it. He understood, and I think he’s embracing the opportunity to go and be the No. 1 on his own show.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
