By Matt Gordon and Ley Lukins Jul 12, 2012

It's time to go behind the scenes of Rookie Blue season three with exclusive commentary from the cast and creators of the show. This week, star Matt Gordon (Oliver Shaw) and writer Ley Lukins talk about coming up with ideas for the episode.

 

Matt Gordon: Oliver Shaw
So now, were there some themes that you decided to play with in this episode? The theme of family?

Ley Lukins: Writer
I think that the theme for this episode was, there were so many themes and they all changed, but it ended up being: Is it better to overprotect someone or to let them figure it out for themselves?

Matt Gordon: Oliver Shaw
Ah... Now did you come up with this theme by yourself or did the writing room come up with it together?

Ley Lukins: Writer
It's one of those themes that grew out of re-writing and changing stories.

Matt Gordon: Oliver Shaw
Oh, that's such a good opening. Was there always a food fight?

Ley Lukins: Writer
No, there wasn't. That food fight was writer Noelle Carbone's idea.
