As aforementioned, Sana Amanat sat down for an interview with Entertainment Weekly.  She revealed that they  “took some risks.” with episode 5 and are quite apprehensive about the reaction to the next episode. Sana Amanat began by saying :

“I’m glad you caught that, very lovely observation. I was like, ‘are people going to get that or no?’ Ultimately, this is a story about identity. How do you understand your identity without understanding what home is and what home means to you? The Clandestines are an interesting foil in that regard, because you are talking about people being displaced, and then there are these people and here’s how they interpret their displacement. There’s a much larger metaphor there and I want to see what people think of it.”

She then went on to discuss the significance of the show:

“I’m really interested in the post wrap-up conversations about this entire show. Because it’s very layered, you’re talking about South Asian character, but you’re also talking about a Muslim character,” she continued. “So, I think we intentionally tried to tell a story of what it means when you lose your home and how you try to create a new one. I mean, it’s what Kamala’s parents did. They came to a new country, they created a home for themselves here. And yet, Kamala feels like she doesn’t understand what that means. So, there’s certainly a lot of parallels and very intentionally so.”

Finally, Amanat shared her nervousness with regard to the next episode. They apparently “took some risks” in it and are apprehensive about the audience’s reaction to it.

“The next episode is going to be an interesting one. Full disclosure, it’s the episode I’m most nervous about. I think it’s really great, but we took some risks with that episode. So, I’m curious to know how people are going to respond to it,”

Whatever be the case, taking risks and being innovative is always welcome. Episode five seems to be interesting and fans of the show can’t wait to watch it! What do you think about the producer’s comments? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
