Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood)

In the finale, Evan Rachel Wood‘s character Dolores seemingly erased herself from existence after she destroyed Rehoboam.

So, is Evan leaving the show?

“I f—ing hope not,” Jonathan said in response to Variety asking that question. “Let me clarify. Dolores is gone. We’re not yet discussing publicly the direction the show is taking, but the fun thing about this show is, you know, from the beginning Lisa and I wanted to make a show that constantly reinvented itself, that could be a different show every season. I think it’s important with a show in which death can be impermanent — these are robots, after all — to mark the occasion with Dolores. That version of that character is gone. We love Evan Rachel Wood and we haven’t [sighs] started talking publicly about exactly what the show looks like going forward. But it looks very different.”

Denise Thé, one of the show’s executive producers, also shared thoughts on the scene.

“I think that it was painful, you know? It was painful to watch and perform on set. It was painful to write,” she said. “When we saw these memories of her being sucked out of her, you got to kind of re-live her life with her and see these different atrocities that were done to her. So, for me that moment where she says that she chose to see beauty is much stronger and that much more beautiful because you kind of have walked this road with her again and re-lived these moments with her. For me, it was a very powerful kind of transcendent moment of her completing her arc and really coming full circle, choosing to love these beings that, in some ways, just tore her life apart, and rising above it.
