No spoilers over here. I will say that Justin [Lin] is one of those think-outside-of-the-box directors. I’d put nothing past him, and he will thoroughly play with whatever is plausible to incorporate into the story.

Finally, in a recent interview with Comic Book, co-showrunner Jon Hurwitz touched on Daniel and Johnny’s newfound alliance heading into season four.
You’ve seen Johnny and Daniel interact for a few seasons now and a movie wave way, way, way back when, and you’ve seen glimpses of them being able to get along and be on the same page and you’ve seen them throw fists on a dime. So anything is possible with the two of them together. They’re united against the common enemy right now. And their intentions are all positive with what they want to do, but let’s see what it’s like for these two guys working together with the same goal, with their different approaches. Can they join forces in a way that is going to be productive and smooth sailing, or will there be bumps in the road? And that’s what people are going to have to look forward to during season four.
