In the closing shot of season two you are [SPOILER!] about to blow up your mom that you just spent two seasons looking for so what can you say in broad, hinting terms as to what we are going to see about that in season three?

Yes, or am I about to? The thing is I want to tell you something and I’m sure John Shiban will come over here and give it all away and I’ll feel bad about hiding it. But, all I will say is that the decision he makes in the first five minutes of the new season will affect everything from that point on. The next ten episodes will all be a result of what he chooses to do or not do, but we’ll wrap it up very quickly. That was a mean cliffhanger.
