“We had a working relationship before we had a personal relationship, and our job from day one has always been to leave the show better than we found it,” Cline continued. “I’m really, really happy and I’m very proud of the work this season, and I’m incredibly grateful for my co-stars and their professionalism and just how talented each and every one of them are.”
When it comes to season three,—which will pick up in the aftermath of John B, Sarah and Kie (Madison Bailey), Pope (Jonathan Daviss), JJ (Rudy Pankow) and Cleo (Carlacia Grant) fleeing North Carolina—Stokes teased a storyline for John B and Sarah that probably hit pretty close to home.
“Love isn’t supposed to be easy,” he said. “It’s not supposed to be something that comes naturally. Part of me wants to continue down the road of peace for John B and Sarah, but if there’s anything we know about this show, it’s that it’s going to take you for a wild ride.”
Stokes continued, “They’re definitely, yet again, going to be tested, and hopefully the fans understand it through the lens of what they’re going through and the circumstances that they’re put under.”
