“Were you satisfied with Dick’s death scene?”
Was I satisfied with the way Dick went out? (Much much giggling). Why can’t I see the holes that I’m falling into?
But anyway, good question. There had been a regime change on the show… Now this is not to leave this room. ( more laughter) But Leviathans were working in some ways and clearly not in others —along with other aspects of the show— so during the regime change the decision was made to wind up the Leviathan storyline, which we did. I think, given how the Leviathans had been built up that the conclusion could have been more drawn out and dramatic. But there was a lot of politics going on in the writing room, a lot of tension. But I think anyone looking back might see it as an opportunity lost and I’d hope moving forward that everyone learns from that.
Breaks my heart to discover that the Leviathan, some of my favorite monsters in any genre show ever, could’ve been given longer legs, but that Jeremy Carver chose to retire them because, I guess, they were last year’s model. *whimper* Dick Roman and co. deserved better. So much better.
I want to start a petition to bring back Dick Roman in a Purgatory flashback. I’ll call it “We Want Dick In Purgatory. No, Not That Dick. Not That One Either. Good Idea, Benny, But Not That One Either. Yes. Dick. That One. That One Right There. We Want Him Back. (Okay And Maybe Those Other Dicks Too.)”
