Dillon first realized the potential impact of Taylor's breakout scene after feeling it themselves. “When I read the script for episode two and I saw the ‘they, theirs and them,’ that’s when the tears started to well up in my eyes. Then when I read Axe’s response, which is, ‘Okay,’ and then the scene just continues, that’s what ultimately moved me to full-fledged tears,” they explain. “Because it’s that exact kind of response that is such an important story to tell: ‘Okay, great. I respect you, so I will use those pronouns, and now let’s get down to business.'” And that's what they do: Axe quickly comes to rely on Taylor's analytical prowess and trust their judgement in and outside the office. Taylor's gender identity is a non-issue in their relationship.
