I wish to see the brand new layers of Lucas, layers that we have not seen earlier than. I feel there’s much more occurring there with this younger man than folks give him credit score for. And I wish to see him with little Jack, to see how he handles the concept of prompt household, doubtlessly, if this relationship goes to work. And how these two modify to one another in the true world. It’s one factor to be on a courtship…Sometimes while you get into an actual relationship, it isn’t fairly as a lot the honeymoon as you count on. But all that’s to be explored.
