    Bentley felt his character was not merely playing games but genuinely wished to leave a legacy for his son. He explained, "He does want to see something left for his son. I think he has seen himself [dead] from before the beginning of the season. He’s already end-gamed what is happening to him. He knows what’s coming and he’s trying to get what he can out of it by making some moves and taking opportunities."
