Jane might be coping with the fallout of breaking apart with Ryan in season 4B. (Freeform)

How is Jane coping with her double mastectomy when the present picks up? 
Wendy Straker Hauser: We flash ahead three months, and we do a montage so that you get a sense of all of the bodily modifications she went by means of and the struggles. We wished to select up the place her bodily scars had healed, however the place she was nonetheless grappling with some emotional scars. I feel she’s not likely anticipating to have any emotional scars. What I imply by that’s simply that she has she let go of a part of her physique and now she’s embracing her new breasts and the way it feels to type of transfer by means of the world with out her outdated boyfriend Ryan. We simply thought it might be fascinating to look at her wrestle and stumble slightly and attempt to be highly effective and empowering and provoking as a pacesetter and a brand new boss at a time when she’s feeling slightly weak.

Along with the mastectomy, she acquired a promotion at Scarlet. That’s quite a bit for anybody to deal with. 
Wendy Straker Hauser: I imply, on the surface, she’s acquired to seem much more of a pacesetter and extra assured than she most likely ever has been earlier than in her life. On the within, she’s grappling with that. Whether or not or not viewers have gone by means of this earlier than I feel we are able to all perceive what it feels wish to really feel weak and insecure and to should muster up the braveness to remind ourselves how assured and competent we’re.

I do know it took quite a bit for her to finish issues with Ryan. Is their relationship actually over for good?
Wendy Straker Hauser: My private opinion is that Ryan might have simply been the one for her. I feel that this occurs in life the place a man who prior to now was type of a participant, which is what Ryan was, meets the lady of his goals however meets her slightly bit too early in life. They’re 26 years outdated. Lots of people aren’t settling all the way down to get married at 26, particularly in massive cities like New York or LA. I feel he met her actually early, and he had a second of giant success with a ebook tour, and he made a very massive mistake. However I nonetheless suppose he actually loves her. He’s in love along with her, and he needs to spend the remainder of his life along with her. It was a case of him not being prepared, although he wished to be prepared. I feel she was prepared. I feel there’s 100 p.c a risk of not solely friendship however perhaps them simply crossing paths once more. I’m a giant Ryan fan, and I feel it’s a really actual factor that occurs once you meet the individual you’re speculated to marry, and you might be actually younger and slightly immature and also you make a giant mistake. Does that imply it’s over perpetually? Or simply for now? I assume we’ll see.

So we shouldn’t depend Ryan out simply but?
Wendy Straker Hauser: I don’t suppose so. I do know pals of mine who’re very fortunately married and have a number of children with guys who made an error at one level and ran again. They’re great husbands. After which I do know individuals who couldn’t forgive that and so they moved on. However I feel there’s plenty of progress available, and we’ll see the place they’re once they discover one another once more, however I’d wish to imagine that they may cross paths.

On one other observe, the finale ended with Kat exposing RJ and her getting fired due to it. How is Kat dealing with the fallout of her resolution? 
Wendy Straker Hauser: We thought it might be actually cool as a result of Kat, even from the pilot, was all the time type of leaps and bounds past her pals when it comes to her duties at work, her title, her socio-economic background, and the privilege that she had financially. We thought it is perhaps a very fascinating storyline to flip that and have her have monetary issues for the primary time in her life and wrestle with unemployment for the primary time in her life, particularly at a time when each Sutton and Jane have acquired promotions. It’s type of a reminder that in your 20s — and even past — typically you’re forward, typically you’re feeling behind, however we’re all type of on our personal journey. I feel that Kat goes to have to have a look at her life slightly otherwise. She’s not going to have the ability to stay it in precisely the identical method if she doesn’t wish to go proper again into one other job. After we first choose up along with her, she’s undoubtedly on the social justice path, and she’s going to proceed to be on a social justice path as she normally does. She’ll notice that she perhaps doesn’t have the funds on the prepared that she used to should afford all of the issues that she’s used to.

As for Sutton and Richard, what’s married life going to be like for them? Particularly since they’ll be sustaining a long-distance relationship.
Wendy Straker Hauser: I feel that it’s going to be a really fascinating journey for Sutton. I’ll say Sutton has all the time been lovable and really humorous. Meghann [Fahy] has excellent comedic timing, and she or he oftentimes supplied levity when the ladies are going by means of issues which are seemingly extra uncooked and tough. On this second half of season 4, we’re going to see her undergo some issues which are extra uncooked and tough. It’s actually going to be fascinating to see Sutton grappling with some greater issues. Richard, being great and superb, will do his finest to be by her aspect. I feel that she’s additionally coping with a brand new promotion, which was additionally very a lot earned. We’re tremendous excited to see her in that world. However once more, it’s a type of fascinating tales the place you may take one step ahead in your profession, however that doesn’t imply that issues get simpler in your private life. Generally it’s only a seesaw of challenges, so we’ll watch her balancing her private {and professional} life.
