“The big, big Cruella episode about her backstory and how I play into it — it’s the biggest one I did and by far my favorite episode,” Patrick told “It’s really, really fun and super surprising. There are twists and turns throughout the whole hour.”

While this episode is going to primarily focus on Cruella, we will learn the Author’s own backstory in the season four finale. The Author has been shady, to say the least, so who/what made the Author the way he is today?

“I can’t tell you why, but I can tell you that you will learn his motives in future episodes,” Patrick continued. “He has complete reasons for doing what he does.”

In terms of the finale, get prepared. Patrick says is going to be one huge “rollercoaster.” He teases: “It’s just fast hills down where you can’t believe what’s happening, and then right back up to take a breath, and then right back down.”

Well, I am so excited but know I am not prepared for what’s to come next!
