With that in mind, reporter Shaun Robinson asked T.R. Knight direct questions about how it's really going behind the scenes.
"We have about 20 days left, not that I'm counting... It's going to be nice to have two months away, you know. I think everyone's looking forward to it."
When Robinson asked if the break from work would finally give Knight time to reflect over the entire season, he replied, "Yeah, to learn from it. Grow. That's the hope; that's my hope."
In talking about whether or not the cast has reached a point of healing and unity, Knight said, "I don't know. We're showing up and doing our work ... There's a lot of work to be done so that's my focus."
When asked how he would work on the process of healing the relationship between he and co-star Washington, Knight said, "I just focus on doing the work. That's my job; that's what I'm paid for; and I think that's enough."
Knight also attributed his upbringing to the way he reacted to the public situation and what he hopes others take from his experience.
"I think a lot of coming from New York to Los Angeles and being on the TV show is, if you're more private, kind of a lot to take in. Growing up, you wanted to just see yourself. When we saw ourselves put in bad light or made fun of, of course, it didn't feel well. Kids growing up see more and more of themselves... I think that has to be a good thing," he said.
