"I will say that reading the first episode of the second season, I was taken aback in a really good way at how impressive that the first episode read," Pascal shared. "And already with the evidence of the first season, knowing that they were able to achieve everything that they set out to, and seeing this incredibly ostentatious first episode with the story of an action sequence and the way that it read on the page and just that feeling that, 'My gosh, they're going to achieve this visual experience!' Like, this isn't just, 'Let's just describe it as best as we can and see what we end up achieving with it' – it is undoubtedly going to be achieved, and I kind of couldn't believe that, and I understood, 'Oh, so this is how they keep it up with the second season; this is how they don't disappoint.'"
