Reaser: Meg burst into tears, we had blown our own thoughts. And then it became … I'm so happy to be keeping this secret because we didn't just have to keep it from America. We had to keep it away from parts of the network, parts of the studio, definitely the press, and then parts of the writing staff. We passed the information on to the employees. We're doing everything on zoom now, so we would have these kind of – in retrospect – ridiculous moments where we just said, "And then we're going to the beach, Mer will …" And then we'd just say, "Hey "Can anyone who is a consultant or a writer's assistant go just for a minute?" So they knew something was going on, but our medical researcher texted us last night too and said, "I don't know how you guys kept this from us for six months."
Marinis: It was fun because I feel like every executive producer reached out to the writer's assistant again because we had to take notes of what we were talking about and we wouldn't let our writer's assistant in the room could.
Reaser: We had a big day a few months ago when the writer's assistant came over to Zoom and told her, and then we had to watch her freak out and bury her head in her hands like a fan. And then we saw it on a large scale, which was just such a trip.
