Whereas initially, it looks like Max (Paula Newsome) will not be fully on Josh’s aspect—they’ve fairly a methods to go earlier than their relationship is wherever close to what it was—she does, in the long run, get up for him when he’s about to be fired. He’ll get to return to work, however he’s been demoted. And as Undersheriff Zhao (Reggie Lee) warns Max, if Josh steps out of line once more, it’s not simply his job in danger. Now, Josh has to ensure Max doesn’t remorse what she’s accomplished.

Under, Lauria previews the challenges forward for Josh—together with in his relationship with Allie (Mandeep Dhillon). In different phrases? It seems like the desire they/received’t they may proceed.

The excellent news: Josh retains his job. The dangerous information: He’s a CSI Stage 1 once more. How is he going to deal with that? How is that going to shake issues up on the lab?

Matt Lauria: Yeah, Josh has bought so much to show, and there’s a number of harm that have to be repaired, so I feel being a CSI Stage 1 by way of rank comes with its inconveniences and challenges however might be the least of his worries. There’s extra about, how do I show that I’m not a law-breaking, unreliable liar who’s able to homicide doubtlessly and who has poor judgment, somebody who’s not reliable? These are the larger issues which are obstacles to beat and to prevail over.

After which there’s some main reparation in broken relationships that should occur. Max is the closest factor to household that I’ve, and I’ve completely shattered our belief. After which Allie is somebody who I maintain in such inestimable esteem, and now I’ve the priority that she’s going to see who I actually am, this one who I’ve tried so desperately to not be and that I all the time have feared that I is likely to be anyway deep inside. I do know that sounds actually heady, however I feel all the things concerning the Allie relationship is so aspirational, is all the things that I aspire to be and have. These are the larger gadgets.

Now, the stress of being a Stage 1 is difficult. My palms are tied, particularly when it entails some actually tense crime scenes which are coming within the fourth episode. In fact, I simply wish to barrel in there and deal with my good friend. However once more, my palms are being tied. I’m being imprecise, however one thing occurs to Allie and I wish to go save her and I can’t as a result of I haven’t earned that again but. So these varieties of issues are tough, the necessity for the kind of company that I’ve loved beforehand and it’s being taken from me. That’s laborious, however I do know I deserve it.

You talked concerning the shattered belief between Josh and Max, however what does rebuilding that appear like?

I feel it’s a painstakingly gradual course of, and I feel on this line of labor, it’s valuable anyway as regulation enforcement, particularly once we’re speaking about our whole job is to hunt out the reality and to uncover the reality and use that for the needs of justice, and for me to abuse justice or our model of justice, the method of achieving justice, and to be untruthful… Additionally, Max and Josh share a degree of intimacy that I feel is actually distinctive. It’s a really private connection, a really familial connection. And so I feel she’s most likely opened herself and uncovered herself in a technique to me that she has to not many different skilled relationships and it’s much more painful that I’d betray her.

What would Josh have accomplished if he had misplaced his job?

I feel he would’ve taken it on the chin and mentioned, “Yeah, I respect your determination, and I can’t say I don’t deserve it.”

You introduced up the subsequent episode, and the logline reveals that Allie is trapped within the basement of an deserted hospital, and also you mentioned Josh desires to barrel in. How a lot hazard is she in?

Grave hazard.

And that’s his first case again?

Yeah, I feel that’s my first case again, and it’s extreme, and yeah, it’s scary. It’s actually scary.

We noticed Allie being there for Josh, particularly on this episode, and we knew what might be between them. What are you able to say about what we’ll see there this season?

There’s so much occurring. There’s what simply freshly occurred with Chavez (Ariana Guerra). I feel I’m most likely punishing myself inside for the way in which that I behaved and likewise for the aspect of myself that I uncovered to Allie, who I couldn’t maintain in larger regard. And I’m apprehensive that she would by no means need me. That’s most likely a doubt in my thoughts, based mostly on the way in which I’ve behaved. After which there’s the work dynamic now we have. Instantly she’s my boss and never like we’re each Stage 3s however she’s my boss as a shift supervisor. Now she’s my boss as a Stage 1. That provides stress as a result of I actually, actually wish to be with Allie, however I additionally actually, actually need her to be all that she may be and all she deserves and all that she deserves from her laborious work. So it’s awkward.

You mentioned that Josh desires to be with Allie, however do you suppose both of them are actually prepared for what that will entail?

Who is aware of? I imply, you by no means know what that will truly be like. There’s a lot affection, need, and admiration from Josh to Allie, and I can’t converse for Mandeep’s tackle Allie, however it looks like it’s reciprocated. However you by no means know what’s truly going to occur whenever you give one thing a shot romantically. It might be all the things you’d ever needed, or it may blow up. I feel there’s such a deep bond with these two and an actual friendship, after which there’s a number of attraction. I do know in case you requested Josh what’s the one factor on this world you most likely need greater than something, it will most likely be Allie.

Going again to Serena, he puzzled if it was ever working between them after what she instructed him, however she insisted that it was actual. So, I think about that issues are going to be tense between them going ahead at work.

Yeah, I imply, how may it’s actual? That’s what I all the time thought. It was like, I feel it was actual. Perhaps we may’ve been extra open. I’m like, been extra open? What do you imply? After which additionally, yeah, how may it’s actual when—to me, that’s simply such an insane transgression. You’re investigating anyone after which you find yourself of their mattress, of their most intimate quarters of their residence. It’s fairly loopy.

It’s laborious for Josh to wrap his thoughts round, however then, look, right here’s the factor: Serena and I’ve a really attention-grabbing dynamic that there’s only a shorthand and a familiarity there and a approach of connecting that I most likely don’t have with any of the others. After which now we have to work collectively, too. So there’s not nothing there, is what I’m saying. There’s a bond, there’s a historical past, there’s some painful revelations that carry up a number of doubt and a number of most likely anger, however then additionally the writers are usually not having us keep away from each other as Josh and Serena. We nonetheless should work together, and so there’s a number of actually enjoyable, uncomfortable conversations and moments going ahead. [Laughs]

We are able to’t keep away from one another. There’s an attractive second the place I’m operating to get on the elevator and she or he’s in there and I don’t notice it till too late and I type of seize the doorways to cease them from closing and I’m like, oh. It’s simply humorous that now we have to maintain on interacting. So there’s some actually enjoyable stuff forward with that.

What else is arising for Josh?

I feel it’s nearly attempting to rebuild relationships, and so attempting to find what this does to my relationship with Max and what this does to my relationship with Serena and my relationship with Allie. There’s a number of unknowns. I feel I’ve to embrace the discomfort of not realizing and simply being grateful that I didn’t lose all of it.
