    There was no Alex in the pilot originally? THAT must be the reason why I watched the pilot first but didn’t like it much lol. If it weren’t for Alex, I never would have become such a huge fan. He’s my favorite character and basically the reason I’m still watching. As long as Justin is in it, I will watch.
