Showrunner John Logan dished on the season 2 finale and what lies ahead for the show's lead characters.

Logan told Entertainment Weekly, I'm exceptionally proud of the season finale. Because I do think it delivers something very surprising."

"A lot of characters and a lot of plot strands are in function in season 2, and in the finale, they all come together, sort of come crashing together, and in a way, the family that we built so carefully over two seasons is really challenged and begins to fracture in what I think are interesting ways," he teased.

Logan said that the real monster is the reality "that all of us are flawed, and you can either embrace your flaws and let them empower you, or you can let them cripple you."

Comparing the finale episodes of both the seasons, the showrunner teased that season 2 is more romantic and funnier. He said "I was more confident writing lighter moments for the characters, and the actors were more confident embracing those, so I think in the second season we were more romantic—we were certainly more musical, more choreographic—and funnier."
