“I wanted my relationship with Jesse to be deep and real, and I had to care about him, like a brother I’d forgive anything. Even in arguments, there would be this blood type. I did dream about Eduardo and his struggle. We split shooting one scene over two days — the scene when I arrive in Palo Alto at the apartment. We shot half of it, then I went to sleep and had nightmares about breaking up with Jesse, and felt I’d behaved badly. I was already into the guilt stage. I thought, ‘If maybe I’d dealt with it differently.’ Then the other half of me was, ‘No, you are justified, it is your house, they’re messing with your hard-earned money and you’re being taken advantage of.’ It was useful going onto the set the next day with that dream.”—
I have been waiting since April to get my hands on the official arrangement of this score in all its high quality glory and now that I have the series five soundtrack (!!!), I’m so glad to finally be able to post this. I’m only part way through listening to the album in full, but, as I’ve said many times, the score for series five is quite possibly my favorite ever. No contest.
