SPINOFF: Huge reveal last episode: Claire died during childbirth. Did you already know about this going in?
Jack Coleman: I didn’t know when we first started, but it was revealed to me fairly early what was going to happen and who [the twins were] and what had happened with Claire. And in the next episode we find out why she died. We know how she died – she died in childbirth – and in the next episode we find out how that happened, how someone who is supposedly immortal died in childbirth.
Speaking of Robbie, as revealed, Noah is the grandfather of Robbie’s character Tommy and Danika’s character Malina. Did you tell them the news yourself?
I didn’t realize it right away and had the great indignity of both him and Danika calling me grandpa. It just tears my insides out. My own daughter being 16, and they’re older than my daughter, and they’re calling me grandpa. Of course, in my real life I started late, so I certainly could be a grandpa, but not to the like of those whippersnappers.
Let’s talk a little about what’s to come in Episode 8, the second part of the June 13 flashback. What can we expect to see?
There’s a couple of things. You get to see the butterflies being trampled on, and then you get to see the result of that. And the result of it is pretty jarring, and I think pretty cool, and it happens at the end of the episode. So, there’s a lot of fallout from Noah’s rash decision to go after Erica. I think that’s all I can say before getting too spoiler-y.
That all said, though, would you come back?
Sure. I don’t see why not. It would be interesting to see if I came back in the same capacity. I imagine I’d come back in a somewhat different capacity. But I’m definitely game to come back.
