Warning: The following consists of spoilers for Thursday’s Imposters finale.
Imposters fanatics, how badly The Imposter do you want another season after that ending? The recently cancelled Bravo drama wrapped up its run on Thursday with a tantalizing twist: After the organization defeated the Doctor, Ezra answered one of the boss’ phones and pretended to be the doc.

As for how we got to that final scene: Sally changed into really the one who killed the Doctor, whilst Maddie perforThe Imposter med decoy. Both women then took off — however Maddie become intercepted by way of Patrick, who arrested her for the murder. Elsewhere, the Bumblers The Imposter agreed to meet up in six months earlier than going their separate approaches.
Below, creators Paul Adelstein and Adam Brooks monitor whether Ezra’s gone to the dark aspect and if fixer Shelly Cohen — who were given knocked The Imposter out by way of Jules — is still alive. They also talk what they had planned for a 3rd season. (For the The Imposter trendy on whether the collection might be shopped to eThe Imposter very other outlet, click on right here.)
TVLINE useless, but his operation The Imposter seemingly lives on in Ezra now. What does it imply for Ezra to take on that persona From the start of the show, we regularly defined him as a pup dog… and he turns into a man. And that might have many one-of-a-kind implications, certainly one of which is that the con itself turned into some thing that turned into very seductive for him. As Maddie says, “You got the adventure you continually desired.” And then about a 12 months in the past, as we had been starting to think about Season 2, we had this picture of him as a kind of Michael Corleone, sitting into the Doctor’s chair, inside the manner that Al Pacino sits into the chair of his father on the quit of The Godfather. So we have been usually playing with that perception of: What if the seduction of that was robust, specifically after all of the things that he’s long past thru — the loss of his father, his guilt, his growing distance The Imposter from his former lifestyles? It’s a sincerely interesting twist. Of direction, it would’ve been actually amusing to investigate what takes place with all of that, and the way deep it goes. But the idea that he become moving toward the con as Maddie attempted to have a regular life became usually at the middle of the show, and at the middle of their tension as competitors and fans.
TVLINE identical darkness in him that there has been in the Doctor. What kind of a frontrunner as the Doctor might he were? Did you give that any idea We did, simplest a bit, because we idea, “Well, how deep is he going to enter this?” There were various methods to go: He should The Imposter abandon them right now. He should discover it disgusting. He ought to attempt to do it, and do it proper. He could make it a Robin Hood element. Or he ought to pass absolutely to the darkish aspect. We have all that written down on a piece of paper somewhere, but we genuinely didn’t make any of these choices but.
BROOKS suppose it’s like, two days later, he’s the Doctor, [ordering] Shelly Cohen to, like, mutilate someone. It’s no longer who he’s, so that’s not what it’d be. He’s more curious than he’s settled in whatever but. He’s now not accomplished with this life, with the idea of being The Imposter unmoored and dwelling this type of existence. It’s sort of like Max’s The Imposter person, [who is] in love with the existence, the job, the con. He accepts the downsides of it because he feels alive doing it. And that’s what’s taking place to Ezra. So I think he’s going to investigate if there’s a model of himself that may do that. I’m certain he’ll discover it’s a whole lot more complex Has Ezra The Imposter shaken Maddie?
ADELSTEIN know if any of them will ever shake Maddie, or if Maddie will ever shake them. But really, he become geared up to transport ahead with Sophia. Of path, we had some headaches planned for that dating, as properly.
BROOKS collectively, neither one in every of them is secure from what would possibly appear. And that gained’t trade. She, too, isn’t always completely in control of herself whilst he’s close by Everyone gets away The Imposter fairly unscathed except for Maddie, who’s arrested. Why did you decide to present her the only potentially unhappy finishing?
ADELSTEIN recognise if she seems sad. There’s a feel of alleviation that she has. Her purpose turned into finished, which changed into to loose herself from the Doctor. One of our subject matters for Season 2 became outcomes, and Maddie and the Doctor, manifestly, have to pay the heaviest effect. It seemed appropriate that after she involves phrases with herself a little bit on the Harbor, and then she moves forward into the arena to try to make things proper through casting off the Doctor, that she has to face the tune. It felt proper Is Shelly Cohen nevertheless Yes, he just has a awful With the Doctor out of the picture, might Shelly Cohen have end up the primary We by no means determined that. We clearly continually relished the concept of having Shelly and Lenny together to see what the ones might be like in a room together. But Shelly and Lenny exist to do different human beings’s bidding. They’re not definitely interested by calling the pictures. They simply want to exit and be the sword of justice.
BROOKS a very a laugh capacity wrinkle in whatever that could’ve passed off in Season three. Paul’s constantly said, they’re a bit bit kind of magic. They’re like from another universe a piece, and whenever they land on Imposters planet, it wakes and shakes the whole lot up in a superb way Did Sophia keep Sally’s secret Well, thus far. The question would end up: Does Maddie get charged with homicide? Do they actually have evidence that she murdered him? And does Sophia grow to be And by the manner, just to be clean: Sophia didn’t see the Doctor getting murdered. So what exactly came about or didn’t happen, she doesn’t recognise herself absolutely. And she has her very own reasons to continually suspect Maddie. We determined that no one simply breaks down and analyzes everything. The Bumblers hate the concept that Maddie could have completed it, and but, there it’s miles. They’re struggling with that because of what she means to them. And then they know that Sally is long past. It’s walking via all and sundry’s thoughts, and all of them need to, however don’t need to deal with it.
TVLINE display’s greatest love story was the friendship among Richard, Jules and Ezra. Where do you consider they’re in six months in light of that finishing We felt that it changed into time for them to head their separate ways, that they concluded this journey, however that they had evolved a bond that changed into undeniable. We desired to do justice to that, and we desired to go away it open that they might be able to find one another again. So we didn’t certainly realize what form that became going to take, however we definitely knew that they weren’t going to be out of each other’s lives.
BROOKS sturdy the “keen on one and one for all” aspect would pass, and what their lives are like without every different and without all this adventure. Does Richard in reality try to run for office? What are the problems [with] that? What’s it like for Jules to have a dating now, or for Richard? So I assume that by the time they do trap up to each different, there’s going to be The Imposter lots to unpack for them. Plus, whatever disaster is ongoing for any or they all The Doctor’s telephones made me wonder if we were ever going to meet any of the other groups working We idea approximately Ernie from Cincinnati, certain. That’d be fun.
