[but] I’m not gonna tell you the context of it," Seater teased.
In fact, Seater revealed he thinks the duo should've ended up together on the show, and perhaps they did — in some kind of parallel universe, that is.
"You don’t want to ruin that fantasy [of Seater and Leggat ending up together] for people, because that’s what they loved about , never came to fruition, there was a script.
"I can tell you the pilot started with Casey and Derek in bed together ...
Leggat went into detail about how easily Seater communicated with the actors and how open he was to their ideas, further establishing a synergistic environment.
Of course, a myriad of the series' viewers think she's actually married to Seater, who . "I remember watching shows when I was growing up and just wanting these two people on the show to be together because they seem so perfect together," Leggat said.And because it was always at the back of their minds, and the fans were so into Casey and Derek being a couple, Seater noted how actors always want to find subtext in their lines and give fans what they desire.Leggat pointed out how Dasey was just like the experience of simultaneously hating and loving someone, since the stepsiblings rarely got along, but did prove to be there for one another when it really counted.But when they are able to get together, it feels as if nothing changed."We could not see each other for years, and it's like no time has passed at all when we do see each other," Leggat shared.Casey and Derek never happened for the very obvious reason that they were, well, step-siblings.But that didn't stop fans from noticing Dasey's crazy chemistry.Seater and his business partner Paula Brancati (who also stars in the movie) developed the plot about a group of longtime friends spending a weekend together at a cottage, loosely crafting each character around each actor, then presenting the ideas to their friends.After everyone jumped on board — Leggat told MTV News that she was totally down from the moment Seater spoke to her about it — they spent time tossing around ideas and improvising scenes, working as one cohesive unit.So, if you're totally not here for Casey and Derek getting together, then take comfort in the fact that they never did.But if youw've got a special place in your heart for Dasey, you can take comfort knowing that Ashley and Michael feel the same exact way about their characters.
