Pretty interesting interview (comparatively) in which Gansa addresses the lack of reference to PQ in 7.01, and Russia’s involvement in the storyline, among other topics.
You’ve always said before that theirs [Carrie and Saul’s] is the core relationship of this show. Are we going to see them come back together? Is that going to continue to play out over the course of the season?
Especially with Peter Quinn gone, that is the first and foremost relationship on the show. And that is really what we’re going to be exploring in season 7 and season 8.
But you don’t reference Quinn’s absence in the first episode. Is that going to come back and play a role?
Oh, he will definitely be referenced. He is not referenced in the first episode. But his absence will be addressed.
