Rami recently opened up about the pressure of having a show that opened with big success in season one.

“I think that the day we wrapped the first season, I’ve been thinking about the second season and feeling like there was an immense amount of pressure. There is something scary about coming out of the gate so strong. You want to be able to retain that or improve upon it,” Rami told THR. “The only way to alleviate myself of that pressure is just to keep working, keep discovering, keep researching and go to that place every chance I could. We have a great group of people. It feels like everybody came back with that mind-set that said, ‘not only can we do as good a job, we can do better.’”

FYI: Portia is wearing a Jenny Packham ensemble and Jerome C. Rousseau shoes.
