Though it’s been more than a year since (American) audiences last saw TRANSPLANT, the season 2 premiere picks up moments after the season 1 finale, which found Bishop (John Hannah) suffering a stroke, while Bash (Hamza Haq) was blindsided by a face from his past.

“Audiences won’t have to wait any longer to answer these questions about Bishop’s recovery or who this mystery woman is,” Haq teases in the video below. “We address those things right away…we pick up right where we left off.”

For Bishop, the consequences of his health setback could be two-fold, as he both has to, hopefully, physically recover, but also deal with the fallout from his decision in season 1 to ignore the warning signs things weren’t right.

“There’s the obviously the immediate health and medical issues that he has to deal with, but hanging over him are the consequences of the decisions he made through the first season about his health and about withholding certain things,” Hannah allows. “So there’s certainly a drama there waiting to unfold. It’s a dual path that he’s on with his own health with those divisions and a kind of second chance aspect of how he is going to deal with that second chance—because leopards aren’t always good at changing their spots.”

Bash—who has so frequently been thrown by bad, life-changing shocks—will have to contend with the arrival of a woman from his past…and what she might mean for his present.

“I think dealing with as many changes as he has, the lone thing Bash always does is survive and move on and find the best way to keep going,” Haq previews. “Season 1 was a manifestation of him keeping on; he’s just moving forward. He’s just keeping going. And then there’s something that anchors him to his past…she comes back and it throws him into a bit of a conundrum, because there was the life that he’s moving towards versus the life that he thought he had lost. And he has to…find a way…to make both of those work.”

“That constant push and pull is something that we see Bashir deal with for the entirety of the season,” he continues. “What it means for him, what it means for his work life, what it means for that budding situation with Mags, what it means for Amira, and just what it means for him, personally, as to where he is in his life, emotionally and personally and career-wise and mentally versus where he was when last he saw [this woman].”
