Delainey Hayles drops hints at the upcoming storyline 

 


Claudia's relationship with Santiago, played by Ben Daniels, is complex and layered. Delainey Hayles describes it as a mix of admiration and tension to the Screen Rant. Similarly, her bond with Madeleine, portrayed by Roxane Duran, is built on mutual understanding and support. Both characters are ostracized and find comfort in each other’s company.

Delainey told the outlet, "Yes. Roxane and I were trying to build something beautiful for both of them. I think they're both in extremely complicated circumstances where they're both being ostracized by their community, and they see something in each other that's very pure. They're kind of floating around each other because they understand that they're both going through something."

Hayles gave spoilers saying, "I'm trying not to say too much, but they're both going through something, and it's very pure and lovely. I like how the writers interpreted their relationship this season because they kept the bond that they have in the books and the love that they have for each other. It's a mutual understanding, and I like the way that the script is very direct, but it's also poetic."
