Q&A with Timothy Hutton
TH: Season 2 starts off with him getting control of the ol' drinkin'. He doesn't drink anymore, and a couple replacement vices come along—he's become a little bit of a manic control freak where he's just obsessed with helping as many people as possible. I think he genuinely loves doing it, but he just allows no room for any personal life, for any personal relationships. It's just all he wants to be doing. Then there's the ongoing will-they-or-won't-they get together part of Sophie and Nate, and there are some outside people that kind of come in and interrupt the gang a little bit and interfere with the internal chemistry of the crew.
