That conversation ranged over a number of things, like how politics and the news cycle influenced the storytelling for the series’ 78 episodes, how compromises in that storytelling eventually made those episodes even stronger, and how surprises during production led to incredibly creative decisions and even the creation of new, fan-favorite characters.
