January 22, 2013 / Parenthood / Comments Off on ‘Parenthood’ Showrunner Jason Katims Talks Tears and a ‘Satisfying’ Season Finale
Parenthood’s fourth season comes to a close Tuesday night, a finale that showrunner Jason Katims promises will be filled with both emotional moments and resolution. In a season that has featured nearly as many emotional triumphs (Max wins the election, Ryan and Amber connect) as it has heart-wrenching moments (Kristina’s breast cancer diagnosis, Julia’s adoption woes with Victor), the critical darling will see Sarah (Lauren Graham) painstakingly pick between Mark (Jason Ritter) and Hank (Ray Romano) and Kristina’s (Monica Potter) health status revealed. Elsewhere, Julia (Erika Christensen) and Joel (Sam Jaeger) look to finalize Victor’s adoption, Amber (Mae Whitman) and Ryan (Matt Lauria) will address their future as a couple as Drew (Miles Heizer) continues to cope with the emotional fallout of Amy’s abortion.
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Parenthood boss Katims to preview Tuesday’s episode, titled “Because You’re My Sister.”
THR: How will Amy’s abortion and their subsequent breakup change Drew? Might we see him go off to college next year in a fashion similar to Haddie?
Katims: That’s a question for next season and the journey he goes on next. The journey for Drew over the course of the series has been a real coming-of-age story. When you think of where he was at the beginning of the show, he’s gone from being very shut down to somebody who has been emerging as a young man. Certainly having to deal with something so big like this is something that’s going to really have an influence on what happens with him next. It will inform a lot of what we talk about when we talk about next season and inform how we think about that character. We could potentially [see his storyline mirror Haddie’s]; he’s a senior in high school; there’s a potential for that, and it is something we address in the finale.
THR: Sarah has to pick between Mark and Hank. The promo teased Hank moving to Minnesota to be closer to his ex-wife and daughter, should we take that as a sign that things look good for Mark?
Katims: She’s a lucky girl! That’s a high-class problem to have! You could take that as a sign. What we were hoping to do in this story was, when I look back when we started the season in the writers room, we wanted to try to create a true dilemma for Sarah, and we felt like there were things that would recommend both of these people to her and it would be a tough choice. It does get to the point where she has to pull the trigger one way or the other, and that’s what she does in the final episode. You can see she knows she has to make a decision and go one way or the other, but you also see that it’s not an easy decision to make. There are things drawing her toward both of these guys. It does come down to the wire, and she does make a choice.
