Post Mortem Interview

What did you think about the show’s choice to not depict the suicide itself?

I think that was the right thing to do. The show is so smart, and it does such a good job of peeling the layers. The show’s about understanding people’s complexities, and I think not showing Ryan jumping off the building is totally in line with the tone of what the show would do.

When did you find out this was in the cards for Ryan?

I knew it was a limited arc, but I didn’t ever know how it was going to end. I think that Ryan is a guy who’s so devoted to his work, so devoted to his ambition that this was his only option. It might seem peculiar for a lot of other people, but I think Ryan really believed in what he was doing and what technology meant for the world, and when it was taken from him, this was his only option.

How did you react when you found out he would take his own life?

I knew that Ryan was a very internal, withdrawn, but also very brilliant young man. When I first joined the show, I knew that he had these wide ideas, these ways of revolutionizing Mutiny and taking it to the next level, and I could tell from the dialogue that he was a young man of passion. So at the end of the season, I got a call from [Halt creators Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers] telling me how he was going to leave the show, and at first I thought, “There’s got to be another option for this guy.” Why doesn’t he just go to jail? Or why doesn’t he take Joe’s advice and run away? But those are not things that somebody like Ryan would even consider. It’s hard for him to think like everybody else, to think rationally when he’s in this grave danger, when the cops are after him, when his lifeblood is being taken from him.

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.
