For the record: 1923Spencer Dutton wanted Leaving dinner early.
Brandon Schellner summed up his character’s good intentions — and unwanted consequences — on Sunday’s season 1 finale, saying, “He smelled trouble, and he wasn’t trying to get any of it.” If you’ve seen the episode, you know what he’s talking about: Spencer’s motivation for skipping dinner on a ship bound for London came from his desire to escape Arthur, who is married to Spencer’s wife, Alexandra. K’s very angry ex-fiancé, who had recently become a traveler. on the same cruise.

TVLine talks to Sklenar about the hour that’s not done yet one more hinder the couple’s efforts to reunite Spencer with her family in the States. Read on for the actor’s thoughts on how much Jacob and Kara’s nephew will have changed by the time we meet Jacob. 1923Season 2 of
tvline , In an earlier episode, Spencer talked about how she worried that the universe was giving her a sign that she shouldn’t have dragged Alex down the path she was on before they met her. Do you think that now that he is married, he has made up his mind about this? Or could the events of the finale unsettle him?
No, I think he’s immovable. Yes. He’s the kind of guy who, once he makes up his mind, that’s it. He is not getting away from her. He is so decisive and so strong in his determination. He will go to the ends of the earth and fight anyone and anything to keep him alive.
tvline , They may actually have to before they reach Montana. I mean, they’re still a long way off. Where are they when they get ejected from that ship?
They are outside Marseille. So yeah, so he could potentially go to Italy.
tvline , Have you shot for season 2 yet?
not yet. It is still being written.
tvline , Obviously, Alex is super capable, very smart and brave. But from what we’ve seen, it’s been kept alive by Spencer’s means and his abilities. And then there’s that conversation about Ellis Island, which worries me for her, given that she might come to America without the American she’s married to. Is He Worried about her ability to navigate the world and reach Bozeman on her own?
Yes. In the end, when they separate, he is largely in a place where he is not sure if he will ever see her again, or if he is ever going to see his family again. He’s at such a loss at that point, it’s as if he’s lost everything, and he feels it’s his fault. He’s hoping she’ll find her way back.
He knows he has her letters. But the fact is that she will be taken to England and kept under lock and key, and he doesn’t know where she’s going. And now he’ll go where he’s going back to the States, and if, by the time he does, will his entire family be gone? He doesn’t know. So, it’s just sad. It’s terrible, you know?
tvline , Spencer doesn’t even know if his uncle will be alive by the time he gets home. but even though We learns that Jake is alive, he has also aged significantly since Spencer left. Do you think – in addition to the immediate danger mentioned in Kara’s letter – Spencer has considered how his uncle might not be the same person he was when Spencer left?
one hundred percent. Yes. I think he is definitely considering everything. He’s considering the fact that they’re huge, and things happen. I mean, life expectancy at that time was much lower than it is now, but the letter scene, where [Alex is] Reading the letters from home, that whole scene, he gets a feeling that some bad news is going to come in one of these letters. He knows it’s coming, and he still feels the same way.
Every minute he’s not there, one minute he’s closer to not being there, and those stakes are there. It is on his shoulders. It’s especially in his head now, and especially when we see him in Part 2 when he picks up. His character changes, knowing that he needs to get back out there, and when he does, there’s a strong possibility that he’s not going to do anything. He may never see her again. And on top of that he has only himself to blame for it. So, the transformation he goes through at the end of this finale is huge. When we meet him again in Part 2 he is a different person. Definitely.
