The Morning Show 's Boss on Dramatizing the 'Absurd&' Aspect of the Sexual Predator

Read not if you haven't watched Testimony the penultimate episode of The Morning Show Season 2 now on Apple TV Plus.

How should you remember a once-beloved public figure who fell of grace when it turned out that he was sexual predator?

After an episode in which characters scrambling to confirm the death of their former colleague Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) were unable to show the news of the night, they are facing the memorial in the penultimate episode of Season 2 titled Testimony.

As a result, the smallest of staffers will make their own decisions about the loss of their relationship and if they ask them to attend the event because of her kids' concerns, such as aging, sex, and the misinterpretation of his deepness with Mitch, she has resisted the disinformation of he and his other enlightened experiences.

The whole show, for me, is about the effects and messiness of being human and people having both altruistic and self-preservation impulses how these things often irritate each other and how we all in the mud with that constantly. This was part of it, said Kerry Ehrin, who showed Variety.

In this episode, Maggies (Marcia Gay Harden) book finally came to a head with the fact that the movie was in the theaters.

Ehrin talks with Variety about juggling all of these big plot points with emotional turns for the characters.

How big did the memorial moment become for Mitchs actions in Season 1?

I wanted the memorial to be a much bigger piece and give more social commentary on the politics of it with whoever shows up, who doesn't want to show up the absurd aspects of slaying like that. Ultimately we didn've had the space to do it, so we had already signed Marty [Short], so I knew we would have wanted him there, and we knew Alex would come and say something, truncated to that,.

Did the writers' room draw on real-world examples of peoples responses to those in the industry who were found to be much more problematic than first thought when the speeches about Mitch were written?

One thing that all of us are grappling with is: how do you categorize people that this has happened to, and do it separate from other things or do that everything get worse? That was the question everybody was grappled with.

How much is this mental state affecting the fact that she, so used to having to speak so freely, is eventually surprised when she is filmed?

I think that if she were to be less cautious, she was to have a horrible fear of being exposed for the worst of her crimes, and I found it very awkward. And so, because she is not completely reliant on sound reason and logic. But it was more reasonable, since she does not always make it that way, but as it is, it's more than just that she wants to do it.

Compared to Maggies sensationalism, versus feeling a need to stand up for Alex?

I think Bradley was at a point where she could have buried Alex and didn't do what she believed was correct. She has rudder of what is wrong and I believe she is like, Why are you trying to bury her? That isn'T fair.

What inspired me to have everything with Hal come to such a big point as rehab in this episode, keeping Bradley so far away from the memorial?

I think that a lot of people who have dealt with psychiatric abuse are unable to be true. And if you are serious, this is ok, so I don't know how to take ill-advised people. Then I say: Do I write off my crazy family, I would like to make it happen, but I have the nerve and the fortitude to do that? In this story, it looks like he is not really remarkable, for i.e.

In the last few seasons, while I've been talking about Laura, I have witnessed moments where he seems to be more of a mentor than hate. How did you get accustomed to this, and how much was determined by Reese and Juliannas chemistry?

I think that if I have had a parent, I get accustomed to people I feel like learning from. Every significant other that I had had has been able to mentor me, so it is my personal approach. [Laughs.] And I believe that this person is essentially dreary. We become parents.

There are a few things sprinkled throughout the season that remind Julianna of her past work the way she performed the doctor hand scrub in this episode, most prominently. Were you intentionally tossing Easter eggs in?

No, that wasn't intentional.

Alex was diagnosed with COVID at the end of the episode. Why did you want to do that?

The foundation of the world began when the truth came out about Mitch. The result was a severance of he and his brother in the arc of an old man who is still so sick and unguarded, and bringing him to enlighten if lone people are to be tense, she is always very unreliable and so the idea of having Alex in that situation is really interesting to me. As 'ass - the whole time, who has been o
