The Tomorrow People – Season 1 – Robbie Amell Interview
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: We have to start with Stephen and Cara. John is back this week. Is his return going to pop their love bubble?
ROBBIE AMELL: It doesn’t even get to that point. Episode 7 picks up the morning after, Stephen and Cara wake up in a hotel room together, and she shuts it down faster than it ever started. It’s definitely not the end of their relationship, but it’s the end of that portion of their relationship. Stephen wakes up thinking that they’re going to be a couple and live happily ever after, and she shuts it down right away and says that it was a mistake. Stephen feels like crap. He’s still reeling from losing Darcy, his second partner in six episodes, and he steps away from Ultra for a little while.
But it still happened, so clearly John’s going to figure it out.
John finds out very quickly as well.
Let’s talk about Stephen’s day without his powers …
Well, at the beginning of the episode, everything has gone to hell. The one good thing in his life or the one good thing in the last little while, Cara, kind of distances herself and shuts it down, so he goes to Ultra, and he’s not in a good mood. And they’re packing up Darcy’s desk, and he’s just really feeling like crap about everything and asks Jedikiah if he can step away. Astrid gives him this little pep talk about how if she had powers, she would use them to have some fun, and you get to see a different side of Stephen. You get to see what it would be like for an 18-year-old kid in high school to actually have powers. He uses them to win basketball games and become popular and hook up with girls, and then Jedikiah finds out about it because they were monitoring him, and they slap a suppression cuff on him and zap his powers, which you would think [would] kind of change the way he acts, but it really doesn’t. He’s still very bull-headed and runs into things face first. He gets into a fist fight with John about Cara, just a good old-fashioned brawl, and then he goes after the breakout of the episode, who’s a Tomorrow Person rapist. Even without his powers, he goes after him one-on-one and tries to bring him in.
That can’t go well.
It does not go well. By the end of the episode, Stephen’s practically dead and very beaten up.
