Thanks. I'm looking to find a way to bring Franklin's father
back into the storyline now, to help resolve this. (Note: no
suggestions, please.) I think he would tend to fall on the other side,
and it'd be good to show that some people may think that yes, there's a
problem, but you solve that problem from within, not by breaking away.
Could make for some nice drama....

It's very difficult now; you have to go through secondary
routes, and travel papers take forever to get processed.

We'll actually mention this aspect later in the season.

It varies; some aspects are extensively mapped out, some are
left a little open to allow for spontaneity. A lot is in a
triple-encrypted computer file, which I consult as needed; the rest I
carry in my head.
