Is this the end for Jo?
Here’s the thing — I thought it was the end of Jo last year. And then apparently it wasn’t the end for Jo. And then I thought it was the end for Jo again. They sort of like to tell me right before it all happens, so I know about as much as you do.
If it was the end for Jo, were you satisfied with her ending?
I was. I really got the moment that I wanted for Jo and Alaric. I gave him a little bit of closure. I’m so attached to that cast and crew. I feel like I got what I wanted in the end…I’d love to go back. I’d love to be back with everyone again but if that was it, I’m happy with the work that I did.
Do you think Jo would approve of Alaric and Caroline?
I think Jo would approve. Caroline’s one of my favorites.
How do you think Jo would react to Caroline carrying her twins?
I think she would be relieved. Her babies get to live. They’re a little piece of her and a little piece of Alaric. She’d be so happy they didn’t die as well on that terrible wedding day.
