I legitimately can't believe we're here -- LESS THAN THREE HOURS from the season finale of Day 5. As Aaron mentioned a few days ago, it's been over a year since we started laying the foundation for Jake and co's journey.
And we've basically spent that entire time waiting for you to get to this point. So... welcome.
One of the crucial things for us this season was sticking the landing. It's one of our few regrets of season one, to be honest. We spent quite a bit of time debating how many answers to give back then, and ultimately erred on the side of mystery. In retrospect, a few more answers were probably due to go out on a satisfying note. Season one was also very front-loaded with the spectacle and scope (not uncommon for a pilot), and focused mostly on introducing you to the world.
Season two is different. We wanted to tell a very focused story with a very definitive conclusion. If you've seen episode seven, you know there are big revelations that took an entire season to build to... and there's even more to come in the finale. You'll get some answers, but not all (it's not the SERIES finale, after all). There will be tension and bloodshed and maybe a few tears. And hopefully you'll feel the love for craft that hundreds of cast and crew put in to take you on this journey.
Let me know how we did after. See you on the other side.
