Something interesting about if Aiden should have died, I'm like 98% sure Jeff got asked about this in an interview, maybe at a panel. His response was that they were meant to portray that he got hit in a vital artery (i actually think it was meant to be in the heart? but not 100%) and they fucked up and it didn't end up coming across that way when they shot it. Also as a twin can I just personally say how much I HATE it when writers kill off a twin to create extra drama, its such a cliché!
How odd to say it didn’t come across that way when they shot it when, you know, you’re the show runner. I mean, if it’s not working, then why not throw in a line of dialogue to indicate what’s going on? Or reshoot? Or, it that’s too expensive, mention it later, in an episode you haven’t shot yet.
And I get that they killed a twin to create extra drama, but I mean, did anyone actually care that much about Aiden? Or Ethan? They were introduced as villains, we knew nothing much about them, and they got barely any screen time.
