Here are snippets from Josh Bowman’s interview with Entertainment Weekly:
How long did you know Daniel was going to be killed off?
I knew before we started shooting this summer.
Was this stemming from your wish last season to be killed off the show?
I think I was definitely wrongly quoted by that particular reporter. It wasn’t a plea to leave the show at all. I mean, I love working on the show. I’d do it for six seasons. I had a sit down with Sunil at the beginning of this season, before the writers were in the writers’ room, and we just discussed my character and the arc, where he could go, where he shouldn’t go. We thought it was very important to have him be redeemed and have some sort of heroic last act for Emily. We thought that would bring the character full circle considering where he’s come from. We’d lead him right back to where he was in season 1. By having him save Emily and sacrifice himself, it was the perfect, fitting end for the character. Sunil and his team of writers did a fantastic job. As actors, you always just want what’s best for the story. I think, collaboratively, for the show, we thought it was a good idea to have a domino effect moving forward. It’s not a good thing to leave a show, but it’s a good thing for the story to help move it forward.
How do you feel about the arc for Daniel this season? Are you glad that Daniel and Emily reconciled?
Yeah, I loved it. I honestly think they executed it very well. I thought it wasn’t too rushed and it wasn’t too slow. It was just right. At the beginning of the season, people wouldn’t be rooting for Daniel. I’ve seen a lot of things, “Kill him off! Kill him off!” Now, they’re like, “No!” Once something happens, people go, “Well, he was actually a good guy.” That’s a testament to the great writing on the show and how they engineered it. They redeemed him, which was good. I thought that was the only way he could go. He’s always been this tragic character of this show. He’s an innocent victim, who got wrapped up in this world because of his family and because of a woman.
