Yes, the team was able to lớn surgically strike at the individual regional leaders, though Roberta Price proved lớn be a slippery one, sneaking away khổng lồ collaborate with mastermind Allison Shaw on one last attack on the James. Shaw, though, wound up putting a bullet in her ally’s bean, before escaping the nhà trắng to play the final ace up her sleeve — kidnapping Chandler’s kids.

As such, though Slattery’s team had Shaw dead to rights, having intercepted her at her getaway jet, Shaw successfully bartered the traumatized kids (who had just witnessed Grandpa getting killed!) for Chandler himself. While Slattery endeavored to appeal to lớn Colonel Witt and the turncoat soldiers’ loyalty, Chandler inside the jet came thisclose lớn putting Shaw down in cold blood, devastated by his dad’s demise. Tex, though, urged him not to cross that line. In the end, after Tex succumbed to lớn a fatal bullet wound sustained during a crossfire, Chandler killed babbling Shaw.


The final casualty of the intense finale, though, was Chandler’s CNO status. Having stood so strong for so long, only to lớn have lost Rachel, his father & now a good friend, he resigned his post and deboarded the James for a final time.

Here, showrunner Steven Kane fields’s burning questions about the finale’s big twists, và the Season 4 fallout of Chandler’s decision. (Note: The interview occurred prior lớn the show’s “bonus” Season 5 renewal.) | This season, there have been episodes, like last week, where you almost had to lớn catch your breath. Were you pleased with how easily, it seemed, the storytelling unfolded in Season 3?It’s funny — at the over of every season or when I’m breaking a new season, I always think, “God, last season was so easy.” But it actually was anything but easy. We had a lot of strands khổng lồ kind of weave together. Previous seasons were more about a hunt và they were challenging in their own way, but this one was more about conspiracies và plots và hiding the ball from the audience without making them feel frustrated. We’re really gratified with the way it came out. | Yeah, the only seam I might have noticed was the “radio interference” thing on at the white house with Kara. That was perhaps something you wish you had been able khổng lồ get to lớn quicker.Well, it’s one of those things where we gave it a bit of screen time just khổng lồ keep it in the air, và then what we thought was cool was that the persistent problem which we thought was technical turned out khổng lồ be the root of the entire problem. But yeah, sometimes you drag things on

a little too long and people start saying, “Why are we watching this still?” That’s the risk.

But I think people took a little time lớn adjust in general to lớn the season, because it was the first one without Dr. Scott, và it was also splitting storylines among as many as three or four different plots at one time. Just judging from my anecdotal experience of the fans’ reactions, it began with a little frustration & it ended with a lot of satisfaction. | Talk about the decision to not give Chandler a happy ending. It was a bit sad seeing leave the Nathan James for the final time.We felt that in many ways the season was about the price of leadership, & we thought that of all the characters who could have had some sort of breakdown or just felt the most burden, it would be Chandler. He has been there for everybody else & hasn’t really had a shoulder to lớn cry on or a person to talk to, aside from a few trusted advisors, but he kind of says it himself: “The world keeps falling apart and we keep having to lớn fix it.” He began the season as this icon on a wall, a meme for everyone khổng lồ see as “the most famous man in the world,” someone who just wants lớn serve, and we wanted lớn take him through this journey where by the kết thúc he sort of crosses the line for himself and says, “I need a break.”

We gave a lot of closure in the season, a lot of things are wrapped up & there’s basically a happy ending, so we thought it’d be great to lớn sort of leave Chandler in a place where you wonder, “Where’s he going lớn be next time you see him, when we come back for Season 4? & can he ever get back that feeling he had that allowed him to lớn stay this rock for everybody for three seasons?” | Judging by that one speech toward the end, it seems lượt thích he’d been backpocketing his guilt over Rachel’s murder all season long, and then once he finally got to catch his breath, it surfaced. And that, coupled with his father’s death, really dealt him a wallop.

Yeah, how vì chưng you keep getting up, putting on your uniform và getting out there into the fight when everything you love và trust keeps getting taken away from you? You try & try và try, yet you still can’t protect those you care most deeply for? That’s a heavy burden. Even George Washington, after two terms and 45 years as a public servant and as a general & founding the country, was like, “You know what? I’m done, I’m going lớn go back to lớn my plantation và sort of take stock.” So in some ways, Chandler is the Founding Father of this new country và no one begrudges him khổng lồ a certain degree his desire to disappear for a while. But at the same time, there are still a lot of people who count on him as a Founding Father, so it’s not going to lớn be
an easy transition. | Why did you think it necessary to lớn have Tex die at the kết thúc there?You love all your characters và you don’t want khổng lồ see them go, but we were building on the story for Chandler, as I laid out khổng lồ you, và we thought that after his father’s death, watching his close friend who came back into kích hoạt to help him die would be sort of the last straw. What was also interesting for us was that Tex before he died was saying, “Don’t . This is not who you are.” He’s trying to remind Chandler of all the things Chandler’s having trouble remembering in the heat of passion. Right before he passes away, he says lớn him, “You’re a good man” — as in, “Don’t bởi what you’re going lớn do” and also, “Don’t hold yourself accountable for everything that’s happened, because you are a good man.” That’s going lớn echo for Chandler throughout the future of the show. | bởi vì you have a sense of how much time will have passed when we pick up with Season 4?I don’t want to lớn say too much, but it would probably be well over a year. | Did you have any kind of alternate ending in the bank, on the off chance you didn’t get renewed for Season 4? Any alternate footage to lớn wrap things up differently had it been a series finale?No, I kind of throw everything I have into every season. We know that if the series had ended with the shooting of Rachel, it would have been a really shocking và awful way to over a run, but at the same time we felt lượt thích there would be some closure — they brought home the cure & the audience can sort of suppose what life would be lượt thích in the future. Similarly, if we ended the show now with Chandler going off, I guess it would be sort of a farewell, as I said, to lớn one of the Founding Fathers of the new country & the audience would have lớn speculate, “Gee, I wonder where he would have gone?” But at least the problem of the season was solved. | Was there any scenario where you allowed Chandler & Sasha a roll in the giỏi before he took off?<Laughs> No, all we were going khổng lồ give then in Season 3 was a couple of kisses. It’s very hard, when there’s so much going on khổng lồ save the world, to lớn stop for the smaller indulgences. | These are two people who probably need khổng lồ decompress, if only for old time’s sake.Yet I wonder if they had “fully decompressed, would he have still left the ship? | Was there anything you had to lớn cut that didn’t make it into the finale? You got in that Danny/ Kara/baby moment, which I thought was a really nice touch.We didn’t cut anything that we felt was important. We always kết thúc up with a little bit of extra stuff if we’re lucky, so that we have choices, because it comes down khổng lồ rhythm và the musicality of the editing. I think maybe we had some moments in the over where you saw Kathleen by herself mourning her father . But we felt it was actually stronger lớn have Sasha tell Chandler, “You haven’t even spoken to Kathleen,” và he kind of goes into, “What am I going lớn say lớn her…?” So yeah, we’re happy with the way it all cut together. | Speaking of Sasha, is it too early to lớn say if Bridget Regan will be back next season?Yes, Bridget will be back. | I have lớn say that at one point in the finale, I was wondering if you were heading towards Chandler ending up as President, & I was kind of hoping you wouldn’t because that would limit you. It’s one thing for the CNO to lớn be a part of “Vulture Team,” it’s another thing for the President himself khổng lồ lead a ground mission. So I was actually relieved when he was, like, “It’s not going to be me lớn lead this country.”Yeah. It was never our plan this season to have him take that role because you vì chưng want lớn see him with his crew on the ship doing what he does. They always announce people of high rank when they arrive on the ship, so if you’re the Captain, they hotline you the name of the ship — “Nathan James arriving!” But if the President walks on the ship, they ring the bell và they say, “United States arriving!” That would have been a bit much lớn have to lớn have the President running the ship from now on.
