Hi Greg! Love the show -- especially the 2nd Season. So tense, exciting and AWESOME. For my money, it's the best serial drama on TV...

I was wondering how the season might have been different if you had 26 episodes versus the 20 we got. Would we have had more stand-alones like "Secrets" or are there important lost chapters in your timeline that were deemed to simply be less essential than what we saw onscreen? Not to say that the season feels rushed at all -- I love super-compact storytelling with all kinds of criss-crossing plotlines. I just love this season so much that I wish we had a few more adventures to enjoy!

Thanks for all your great work and I can't wait to see what you're working on next. (P.S. I pre-ordered Rain of the Ghosts -- so excited!)

Thanks for the kind words. And THANKS VERY MUCH for pre-ordering Rain of the Ghosts!!!

I think I've pretty much covered your question already. We NEVER had 26 episodes, so we only built the season for 20. So I can't say for absolute sure what would or wouldn't have been included in the hypothetical situation in which we had six more. But I'm sure it would have allowed for more screen time for characters who got shorter shrift this season. And I'm fairly certain we would have had a Zatanna story and maybe a Red Tornado story.
