Followers of the unique e book may acknowledge that this scene within the sequence unfolds in a different way than it does within the supply materials, with showrunner O’Brien beforehand explaining how they discovered the steadiness between remaining devoted to the novel and exploring new components of the mythology.

“In adapting the story, we got here at it as lovers of the e book. I do not understand how persons are capable of adapt a e book that they do not love,” O’Brien shared with . “All the things started there and each deviation that we created from the e book was actually in making an attempt to service the story in a brand new style. The novel is improbable and loads of it’s cinematic, however loads of it’s inside as nicely. For example, on the finish of Season One, when Vic is trapped in Charlie’s real-world home and he units it on hearth and he or she’s within the laundry chute. Within the novel, Vic units the home on hearth and there is a entire inside monologue about what her muddled considering is as a result of she’s appearing on her toes and he or she’s undecided what to do.”

She added, “She throws some dish towels within the oven and it is described that she is considering that she’s going to flee and the haze of smoke would cowl her escape. I used to be defending that second as a result of it is a very iconic second within the e book and I beloved it within the story. So I, within the writers’ room, was saying, ‘We now have to do that. We now have to verify we do that. We now have to verify we do that.’ And Tom Brady, who wrote the episode, mentioned, ‘I don’t know how we’ll convey that.’ He mentioned, ‘We will not see into her head. There isn’t any one there for her to speak to.’ He mentioned, ‘It simply goes to look loopy. Like she locked herself in after which set the home on hearth.’ I used to be like, ‘You are proper. You are proper.’ And in order that led to us protecting the sequence, however we needed to change the intention. It made extra sense on a tv present for Manx to lock her in there and attempt to burn down the home moderately than her locking herself in with out the advantage of that inside monologue.”
