You are good at something, stop lying to yourself. You’re good at breaking down comic book plots, cooking ramen perfectly, making your friends happy, knowing the time without looking at a clock, getting the perfect ending at RPG’s, or figuring out the twist ending to movies. Don’t let society tell you your talents are meaningless because they don’t serve an economical purpose. Your talents reflect your interests and passions, and what’s important to you is important.

First of all, Mount Weather is the place where the government of the United States is supposed to be taken to in the event of some sort of a cataclysmic, end-of-the-world situation. It’s a bit of a relic of the Cold War, but it’s a real place. A lot of conspiracy theorists have their own bizarre claims about it. Nobody’s ever seen it, it’s classified, etc. So it’s based on that.

And you can imagine, at the time of the bombs, people made it there unbeknownst to the Chancellor. His speech in the pilot says that nobody ever made it there, but obviously he was wrong. And I look at Mount Weather in Season 2 as almost a mirror or negative image of the Ark. Whereas the Ark was founded by scientists and astronauts, who were already in space at the time of the war, Mount Weather was founded by politicians and military people and powerful people who had connections and were able to get there in time. That may be a little spoiler-y, but we find that out pretty quickly in Episode 1 of Season 2. - Jason Rothenberg
