FOREVER is back on Tuesday, February 3rd after a few weeks of reruns, and big things are in store for Abe.

“The episode deals with Nazi art heist,” FOREVER creator Matt Miller shared. “And what that does is brings back into play some old feelings for Abe, because Abe was a child of the Holocaust, and he learns some things he didn’t know. And Adam, the anonymous caller, makes that connection for him.”

Which means, yes, Abe and Adam will have some meaningful (and face-to-face) interaction. “It’s a really cool episode,” Miller teases.

FOREVER has booked a return visit for Hilarie Burton and a first-time appearance for THE WALKING DEAD’s Emily Kinney (who played Beth on the AMC series).

“Emily Kinney from THE WALKING DEAD is going to be on our show,” FOREVER creator Matt Miller shared. “She actually starts shooting [episode 16] tomorrow. And we bring back Hilarie Burton as the dominatrix. She starts tomorrow as well. She and Henry have a nice chemistry.”

Burton — whose Iona sparked with Ioan Gruffudd’s Henry late last year — once again pops up in their world thanks to a case.

FOREVER: Matt Miller Teases Henry Meeting ‘Adam’

The last episode of FOREVER left off on a sizable cliffhanger — Henry was kidnapped by the anonymous caller, “Adam” — and in this week’s midseason finale, the action picks up right where the show left viewers.

“This is a very big midseason finale episode for us,” FOREVER creator Matt Miller teased. “It’s our biggest mythology episode so far, in that Henry will in this episode meet the anonymous caller — the man that has been stalking him since the pilot, the person that claims to share his immortal affliction. At the end of [the last episode], he is kidnapped in a taxi…and this episode picks up with Henry in that taxi, with the anonymous caller, but he can’t quite see him because it’s dark out, and he can’t see him through the rear view mirror.”

And Adam isn’t just going through these motions to make Henry’s life more difficult — he has a very calculated reason for taking Henry by force.

Comments Off on FOREVER: Matt Miller on the Procedural’s Tone, Character Dynamics, and More

There aren’t a whole lot of crime procedurals on tap this season, but one of the ones I enjoyed the most was ABC’s FOREVER. (Which you may have seen since ABC put it online early.)

Ioan Gruffudd is effortless as Henry Morgan, a medical examiner who is fascinated with death for a good reason…he can’t die. The show is breezy, fun, and in the couple of episodes I’ve seen, it has been a fun mix of “case of the week” and dealing with the on-going mythology.

I sat down with FOREVER creator Matt Miller (who has previously worked on CHUCK, HUMAN TARGET, and 666 PARK AVENUE, to name a few) to talk about the tone of the series, the cases that are ahead, Henry’s relationships, and more… (And, warning, there are a few minor pilot spoilers in here.)
