"This particular topic, for all the obvious reasons, is personal for me," Woodside tells The Wrap. "Being a Black man, being someone that was abused by the police constantly from seven years old till I was in my late 20s. But this one was personal. And I don’t believe I’ve said this before, but they tried to tackle it a few seasons ago, I think in Season 4, and Claudia Yarmy, who I’ve talked about often as one of my favorite directors, and I thought she did an absolutely phenomenal job with that episode. And Claudia is back directing one of my favorite episodes for Season 6...But it’s a tough topic. And I’ll say this now publicly, since everything is over, I don’t feel like we did as good of a job tackling this issue in Season 4 as we could have. I thought that it was danced around a little bit. And that’s something that, when I look back on that, my heart aches a little bit that we didn’t tackle that more head on. I think this was a particular topic that scared people, for all the obvious reasons. But it is a topic that we really need to tackle and we really need to talk about. And having fear talking about it should be included in the conversation. And it shouldn’t be something that just because people are afraid to talk about this particular topic, the police brutality towards Black men, towards Black women, towards brown men, towards brown women, this shouldn’t be a topic that we shy away from. So I was a little disappointed that we didn’t tackle it as hard as I wanted to back then.” ALSO: Showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich discuss how they turned one-act coda from last season into a final season.
