“My character has a big victory, followed by what isn’t necessarily a big victory,” Jonas said. “And the audience will see that when it happens. The rest of my storyline for the season is self-discovery.

“Going on that journey to figure out who I am was important to me, what relationships are important to me and the complications that come with family when the carpet is ripped out from under you. It’s really complex and has a lot of layers,” he explained.
