Eva Lovia is stunningly beautiful, one might say. She has a very touchable quality that makes you want to put your hands in her hair and on her hips. In this episode we wrote a scene around that girlfriend quality she has—she makes you want to pull her in close, as opposed to a lot of the more removed scenarios that create a disconnect or ulterior motive between partners.
I have always loved make up sex because it is charged with feeling. It is said that horror movies are your best bet if you take your date to the theater because they get the blood pumping, and pumping blood lends to arousal. Fear is an aphrodisiac. And fear is what precipitates make up sex: a couple has been knocked apart by an argument, so rushes wildly back together the moment they feel they’ve passed through the worst of whatever it is that has upended them. It is a thick mixture of relief and renewed hunger for each other.
In one of our favorite creations to date, make up sex is exactly what we wanted to see between Eva and Manuel. Their chemistry was nearly audible in the silence. It felt as if they needed to get back to each other. So someone said, Go. And then they went.
