How am I able to say something to her? So I like that in Season 2…I feel like all the characters matured. And that relationship, too, was great because Rand is trying to live life without getting close to anyone.”

My favorite scene of season two is at the start of the season, you find Rand in a place where he’s taking care of people who struggle with their mental health, just like Rand is struggling with his mental health. And there’s a beautiful scene with Errol, and Rand just takes care of him. It’s just such a lovely scene and it’s all about giving hope.
