“Season 4 has been a very meaningful season for Robby and Tory in different ways, but we have also seen them bond in a relationship,” says series ‘showrunner’ Jon Hurwitz about the characters in statements to TVLine. “Robby is ready to open his arms to Johnny after all these years, which is something that I think a lot of fans have been wanting to see and that we have all been rooting for for a long time. […] We are exploring Robby and his loyalties further, and season 5 is another important season for him. “
“As for Tory, she’s a champion,” Hurwitz continues. “It is something that she wanted and it does not have the advantages that the other adolescents in our series. She has a sick mother and few resources, so being a champion is something significant, it is hers and only hers.” Thus, discovering at the end of the season that the legitimacy of that championship is in doubt has given the team the tool to explore it even more interestingly: “How are you going to respond to that? I felt like I had something special and pure, and that I could go anywhere with something like that.”
