Ben Sinclair expects the further exploration of his character's life to divide audiences in Season 3. As Louis Peitzman reports, Sinclair and fellow co-creator Katja Blichfeld "were worried about undermining the mystique of the character by delving into his personal life. The first episode of the web series originally included a monologue of exposition that they ultimately ended up cutting; after that, they decided to leave The Guy deliberately vague. On HBO, however, as the writers have continued to be inspired by their own lives, Sinclair has allowed more of his reality to shape the character."
