Creator Paul Scheuring had already admitted that they were forced to 'conflate' two episodes into one, but now he's spoken to Digital Spy about why that phantom episode was forced to get the chop.
Praising the "amazing" feat of getting the production together due to the actors' busy and conflicting schedules, Paul explained: "I think we had 15 or 16 weeks to shoot the whole thing.
"At the end of the day, we just didn't have enough time to shoot 10 hours; so we conflated two of those episodes into one. There was an incredible effort that went into making this show."
He continued: "We had simultaneous crews shooting in Morocco and a whole full crew shooting in Vancouver at the same time. There were a million plates in the air and it was a massive headache."
Admitting that trying to nail that elusive 10th episode was a juggling act, Paul also revealed it was for the best that it didn't work out. "[A]t the end of the day, it kind of all came up aces," he said.
