Quantum Leap’s Showrunner Defined To Us Why Ben And Addison Broke Up And How It ‘Deepens’ Season 2

Quantum Leap is nicely into Season 2 at this level, however some followers are nonetheless reeling from the huge reveal that kicked the season off. Whereas few had been shocked that Ben did not make it again house, it was a shock to study he’d been lacking for 3 years following the Season 1 finale, and was presumed lifeless. When Ben lastly returned, he found that a lot had modified in his absence, reminiscent of ex-fiancé Addison having a brand new boyfriend. Now, weeks after the reveal, the showrunner defined the logic behind that large breakup to CinemaBlend, in addition to the way it “deepens” Season 2.

I had the fantastic alternative to talk to Quantum Leap showrunners Martin Gero and Dean Georgaris about what’s performed out in Season 2 thus far, so I needed to ask why they break up up certainly one of TV’s finest new {couples} instantly as its sophomore season started. I used to be admittedly skeptical about Gero offering any rationalization that would justify Addison having a complete different boyfriend in Tom Westfall, however after listening to his reasoning, it makes a whole lot of sense. As he put it:

Loads of it took place as a result of we wished to determine a means for, you recognize, within the first season, all the present-day stuff was very expositional. It was nearly time journey math and, ‘Wait, what is going on on,’ and, ‘Say that slower. Maintain up. What does that imply?’ And we’ve got 4 nice actors on the present-day facet. For us, we had been like, how will we transfer that stuff away from simply pure exposition and get it right into a extra emotional story that may trigger an emotional story of occasion as nicely? In order that this present-day stuff does not really feel like simply an evidence machine, it simply enriches and deepens the emotional viewing of the present.
