It’s like a freight train this season,” she shared. “Lucas, Paige, Noel Kahn, everybody who was tangled under her web. Do we get sucked back in? What do we do? How do we deal with it? That’s what’s going to be interesting to see how it plays out. Does this group need a leader? Does this group want a leader?”

And what about Ezra? “He still needs to be redeemed, by the way. He took a bullet for the girls, but he still has some work to do. That’s definitely part of [his arc].”
