Looking at all these pics from today reminds me that behind all the ship wars, character hate and negative nellies, there are these lovely human beings who not only love what they do, they love each other and as Kelli and Peter said in the FB Q&A, they’re just happy to have a job to go to every day where they treat each other with respect and kindness because that is not always the case. It’s easy to forget that their experiences as actors, writers and crew members is vastly different than ours as the viewers. These jobs represent their livelihood, their careers, it’s how the support themselves, their families and their children.
Season 18 is disappointing for me as a viewer, but I’m so happy to see them enjoying life on set, with each other and doing what they have love and passion for. May they have many more days like this one.

and you have to know how to play us. We have specific skills that our characters
are really good at doing for a story. It was about making moves in the best possible way.” -
