Melanie Liburd shared her thoughts on what's next to come for Zoe in an interview with Variety.

It's a very adult relationship."

She revealed that she'd love to learn more about Zoe's interests in the upcoming episodes. "I would love to see what made her happy as a child, rather than have it be so clouded by what happened to her  - what made her laugh, and her relationship with Beth, and how she learned to trust people again after being left by her mother in Beth's house."
