Sunil Nayar spoke with TV Line about the series finale. Here are some excerpts from the interview!
Is Jimmy Victoria’s father?: “No, and it’s funny because there seems to be a degree of confusion. Prior to Jimmy Brennan, she had taken the fall for shooting her mother’s boyfriend and had to do six months in the juvenile evaluation center. When she went back home, her mother had started dating a man named Maxwell, who was the man who molested her; when her mother caught that happening, she kicked her out on the street, which is when she ended up in the building where Jimmy lived.”
Did Amanda really get Victoria’s heart?: ” What I’m hearing from people’s reactions is that they don’t know whether that’s true or not. For me, I think that’s great. I think that the show lives in the world of nightmares and memories, so for the psychological nature of it, it’s good regardless; you realize this is going to haunt Amanda for the rest of her days. It’s a fun question for the audience to toy with: If it did happen, what does that mean? It’s a bizarrely theoretical cliffhanger, which I hope inspires conversation. I like the debate of it.”
Can Emily and Jack really have a normal life in the future?: ” That’s another great thing to leave people asking: What would that life look like? It’s strange to think about, because whether they like it or not, they’re a famous couple in this country now. She’s skirted around the reality of that existence, and he’s never even come close to embracing the reality of it. It would re-frame them in a way. Does she drive Carl to school? Who picks him up?”
Is Margaux in prison?: “Yep. She’s in prison, paying for what she did. She’s probably faring better than one would imagine. This is a woman with dignity, smarts and class, so she’ll be treated like the celebrity criminal that she is. But she’s not having an easy time with it, and I think she knew that would be the case when she decided to pay for her sins.”
Was there ever a discussion for a fifth season with Nolan as the focus?: “There was a thought about continuing it, yes. We knew that Amanda and Jack would be out there somewhere, and whatever we decided to do with the story — whether it focused on Nolan or not — we would try to get some of the gang back. Amanda Clarke is now Amanda Clarke, so there’s a totally different dynamic there. If we were to start a new story, we’d have to factor in that she has a different presence in the world now. When she first met Nolan, he was more famous because she was trying to be Emily Thorne. It would have been fun to see that dynamic flipped, re-focusing the show on Nolan in a Better Call Saul kind of way.”
