I was a fan of the comics–my dad used to clip the Sunday strips in the newspaper and hand them to me at breakfast, [but] taking a character off a page and turning them into a human being is such a fun process. Our mastermind Robert Aguirre-Sacasa really allowed us to find who our characters were ourselves and develop them with no boundaries. I really had to dig deeper than the villainous surface and discover the reasoning behind the cold-hearted façade.
Like I knew Yousana was gonna be a slow burn but I didn't anticipate just how much of a slow burn it was gonna be. Remember when Yousef was genuinely disappointed that Sana failed throwing the sock into the lamp on time? Omg I just started thinking about all the scoring, missing etc metaphors this season. Like first the timing wasn't right. And then she scored and he scored and she scored again (at basketball) and now he scored at kubb. Now all that's left is them being on the same team!!!
