[Warning: The next incorporates spoilers from the Season 2 finale of A Million Little Issues. Learn at your individual danger!]
As promised, the Season 2 finale of A Million Little Things began out as a cheerful affair and ended with an emotional intestine punch that’s going to have followers wringing their arms till new episodes arrive. The episode started with Eddie (David Giuntoli) and Katherine (Grace Park) able to renew their vows, however earlier than anybody may stroll down the aisle, Rome (Romany Malco) and Regina (Christina Moses) discovered that the delivery mom of their adopted child was going into labor. Yay, proper?
It was as soon as everybody gathered on the hospital that the whole lot began to go downhill. Eve (Ebboney Wilson) modified her thoughts about giving the newborn up for adoption, leaving Rome and Regina utterly heartbroken. In the meantime, Eddie had gone on one other mission to determine what occurred to the night time his buddy Alex drowned at his household lake home. The solutions he discovered — that he actually was there when she drowned — nearly led him to the bottle. He resisted on the final second, and headed residence to come back clear to Katherine, however as he made his approach again to the automotive he was hit by a automotive himself.
TV Information spoke to David Giuntoli in regards to the stunning cliffhanger and what he thinks is in retailer for Eddie after this devastating occasion. Spoiler alert: We do not be ok with it.
First issues first, what was your response to this cliffhanger while you discovered?
David Giuntoli: Ah, deep monetary nervousness, I’d say. I as soon as had an performing coach inform me that you just all the time need the sequence finale to exit in your face. And boy, was she improper. Hear, after I first obtained the a part of Eddie Saville, I sat down with DJ [Nash, showrunner]. We went out to lunch, our first sort of nose to nose. and he says, “Hear, here is what I do know in regards to the present”…He sort of mapped out the massive turns, and that is what [he] had in thoughts…And, yeah, he wasn’t kidding. So I imply, [my reaction] was insecurity. Regardless that I sort of knew what was going to occur, it nonetheless is a heartbreaker since you love everyone on the present.
Is Eddie lifeless? As a result of I simply thought he’d be in a coma.
Giuntoli: Hear, as a lot as you need to know if Eddie is in a coma, myself and my banker have to know if Eddie is simply in a coma. I am not 100 p.c optimistic of something. I simply have an ideal inkling as to what’s taking place right here.
Do you suppose he was hit by chance?
Giuntoli: Oh, boy, I believe this was an accident, however that will be an unimaginable plot twist. I do not suppose that that will be past genius thoughts and twisted thoughts of DJ Nash.
I spoke to DJ as nicely and he mentioned that the reasoning within the writers room for doing this was as a result of Eddie has handled lots of guilt for his sins, however hasn’t essentially been punished for them. What do you consider that?
Giuntoli: Eddie did must be punished way more. His pals had been very straightforward on him. The psyches of the viewers in all probability want this. I do know as a viewer, it makes a hell of lots of sense. I believe it sits improper with people who Eddie and Delilah sort of did what they did, and the whole lot is fairly good. Eddie got here out in a fairly great way. I imply, there’s some damage relationships, however he sort of obtained the whole lot he needed on the finish of the day. I believe that possibly there’s somewhat little bit of a way of justice that’s glad on this plot twist with Eddie.
One of many issues that we did not see, as an viewers was, what was the connection like with Katherine earlier than the affair? What was the connection like between Delilah and Jon earlier than the affair? So we did not get any justification on that finish. We picked up on the affair, so it put Delilah and Eddie in a troublesome place with the viewers. I’d say. Because it ought to have.
What had been your conversations with Grace Park like about this twist and what it means for Eddie and Katherine’s relationship?
Giuntoli: Grace was simply actually shocked on the ending. We have not had any conversations about that. Many of the actors on our present do not need to know — DJ does not need to let the actors know what is going on to occur earlier than it occurs. He does not need the the actor to know greater than what their character would know at that given second, with sure exceptions. So Grace and I did not have lots of time to speak about this…It is a heartbreaker that Eddie and Katherine lastly entered this gorgeous easy, calm, placid a part of their relationship. And now it appears like Katherine, God love her, goes to should endure some extra.
The automotive accident apart, Eddiealso discovered on this episode that he’s a minimum of partially liable for Alex’s dying. If he survives the automotive accident, what does the therapeutic course of over that appear to be?
Giuntoli: I do not know the way that story goes to be resolved as a result of DJ correctly likes to maintain sure issues sort of a secret. I do not 100 p.c consider that Eddie is aware of the whole lot about what occurred that night time that Alex Stewart died. I believe there may very well be some extra card flips within the parlance of DJ Nash hat might be revealed to the viewers. But when Eddie, by means of negligence and being fall over drunk, had a hand in her dying, I do not suppose he can ever recover from that hump. It is simply an excessive amount of for him.
Is there something you need to say to followers who’re going to be stressed about Eddie’s destiny till there’s a Season 3?
Giuntoli: A Million Little Issues is a present about household and relationships which might be so sturdy that all through any tragedy the relationships will maintain up. Individuals might be there to help one another. So don’t be concerned about both Eddie, or Katherine, or Theo, or any of those pals. They will get by means of nearly something, so long as they’re collectively.
