SUPERSTORE pulled off one of the biggest—and most heartbreaking—shocks of the season, as Mateo (Nico Santos), who is undocumented, was taken by ICE at the end of the finale.

“They told me that’s where the finale was going to go, and then they assured me, ‘Don’t worry, you’re not being written off the show,'” Santos told reporters in the video below. “Even though I knew that’s where the finale was going to go, it was such a difficult script to get through…it was so triggering.”

When it came to film the episode, “there were cameras all around us, but just seeing a bunch of huge guys dressed as ICE agents descend upon you…there were a lot of moments in that episode that were difficult to get through,” he says. “It was such a profound week of filming,”

SUPERSTORE, one of the best comedies currently on television, threw grenades into multiple relationships in last week’s episode.

In “Safety Training,” Amy’s (America Ferrera) attempt to befriend Kelly (Kelly Stables)—AKA Jonah’s (Ben Feldman) new girlfriend—backfired when she took credit for Kelly improperly hanging signs and was forced into safety training. To get Amy out of it, Dina (Lauren Ash) planned on playing footage of Kelly’s work mistake…and instead played a mishmash of footage which included Amy and Jonah’s kiss during last season’s tornado.

Meanwhile, Mateo (Nico Santos) was injured by a falling sign, which helped out. After he kept turning down corporate’s offer for injury compensation, finally Jeff (Michael Bunin), his ex/the store’s distract manager, insisted on giving him money. But Mateo finally admitted he was undocumented and his inability to share that with Jeff was the real reason they broke up.

So where does the show go next? SUPERSTORE creator Justin Spitzer shared a few teases about what’s in store. Read more
