This week we dive into Season 2 Episode 11 - Midnight Train to Royston. Jam packed with so many unfinished storylines, this episode gave Jeff and Dimple a lot to talk about!
The arrival of a Ghanaian billionaire looking to dismantle colonialism one football player at a time. Nate’s misreading of so many situations. Roy and Keeley trying to grow into their own even as they do the work to stay together. Ted and Dr. Sharon’s final moments together. Trent Crimm’s decision to buck ethics in favor of protecting someone he’s grown to respect. It’s ego, passion, love, and betrayal, all packed into a heavy hitting episode that left Jeff and Dimple with a lot of unresolved questions.
Check out the episode to hear Jeff and Dimple as they reflect on the episode’s development. Dimple talks about the five ways our nervous system reacts when it is activated and compares those reactions with the events and dialogues unfolding throughout the episode and much more!
“When I think about ego, ego is one of those things, like in my work I talk about the five ways that we react when our nervous system is activated. Fight or flight. Fight, flight, freeze which we are all familiar with. Fix and then something called Fake. And fake is the one where we double down, and we pretend. We do everything we can to show people that we have power. That we are perfectionists or we’re perfect in what we are doing and we don’t need help. All these things. So to me, this is very much like this ego is really like Nate’s fight or flight response to me.” Dimple – (55:28)
