Moviefone: Sarah, can you talk about where season one ended with Billie, and where we’ll find her when season two begins?
Sarah Shahi: So Billie says these three words, which indicate fornication and then season two begin. It basically starts off the moment those elevator doors close and we get to see what happens for her and Brad. It definitely takes a screeching halt, and then the rest of the season is what the season is.
MF: Billie is struggling with her own identity and striking a balance between the life she has and the life she wants. Can you talk about that?
SS: I think one of the important things about Billie is she's a fantastic mother. One of the things that we saw last season is she was a wife and she was a mother, but she kept having all these other sides of herself that she just couldn't let go of. She's like, "Well, what happens to all these other desires and these wants that I have?" So this season, you see pretty quickly what happens to her that focuses her to be able to pay attention to herself.
Then the rest of the story she is with someone else, she is with another man. Through that relationship she's able to fully actualize herself and how she balances all those things. Then it ends in a way, I think that people will be surprised and happy about.
MF: Adam, has Brad gotten over Billie?
Adam Demos: Never. It'll never happen. He can try to move on and grow and start a different life, but no, he'll never get over her. Whether they can be together is the question, but he'll never be over her.
MF: Has he made a decision to move on?
AD: He's made a decision. He does for his own sake. He can only sit around and wait for so long. But he'll never get over it.
MF: Margaret, it seems that Sasha has a love interest that is threatening her independence, can you talk about that?
Margaret Odette: 100% threatening her independence. She is really unmoored by that and really doesn't know how to embrace this new identity that is forming vis-a-vis reconnecting with this love interest. So it's terribly exciting to experience her twist and turn through that and have to redefine what it means to be this independent woman, this fierce woman. She has to discover and learn for herself that being independent doesn't have to mean being alone. It doesn't have to mean holding it all for yourself. It doesn't have to mean having it all together all the time. So we really get to watch her go through that journey.
