Well...I won't claim to know what's in their minds but I can say one thing: I'm dying, positively DYing, to know what's going to happen to Barbie in Season 2. I've run through my mind various ways that he could be believably freed from his extreme quandary of about to be hanged; but unfortunately I can come up with nothing realistic. I'm not a writer though. I'm a paramedic, who apparently can't even write about my own profession without an editor telling me it's "not believable." Incidentally he told me something wasn't believable that actually happened but never mind. I'm positively dying to know how they're going to come up with a beLIEVable way to get Barbie out of that quandary without Junior pulling the lever since at the end of the show his hand's already on it itching to make Dale Barbara swing.
