What sort of fan reaction have you heard about the addition of Kelli Giddish and Danny Pino?
Leight: There are some fans of the Olivia-Elliot relationship for whom that was the only reason they were watching the show. And those fans are just stuck at the moment. Creatively, I think the show has been going very well. [Since] Kelli and Danny have come into the squad room, we have a lot of flexibility now. … It’s allowed for all kinds of interesting combinations and new alliances and problem areas. Fans of the show, I think, are very much engaged. Fans of the Olivia-Elliot relationship? I don’t know what else to do for them.
