‘Cause for a while she was asking, “When can I tell people? ” [ When Episode 13 opened with her funeral, and you cut to her picture, my jaw dropped. We’re always shooting in a new location — Disney [Studios], Culver City, Canada, Santa Clarita. It really stung to have her life end at the exact moment she’d finally found some happiness and stability: Baby Vivian, new love Adam and her burgeoning career as a sexpert/author. With the last two original mistresses, Joss and April, each happily married and with new babies at the end of Season 4, have you painted yourself into a corner in terms of exciting, scandalous arcs for those characters? We want to make a wide left turn that still allows us to stay true to the characters. We can start a new theory percolating because the Lydia one is not it.
Yunjin has conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate her personal life and relationships.She may feel that she cannot depend on her love partner to take care of her or perhaps Kim cannot decide what she really wants in love relationships: a parent or a lover.Karen Kim, a popular fan theory about the show’s “mystery woman” cliffhanger and the return of Wilson Cruz’s Dante (and how it relates to the absence of Kate’s sweet roommate/gay BFF Randy).We have to talk about Karen’s death — and what prompted it.” We didn’t want to do what we did with [Alyssa Milano’s] Savi, having a character of ours out in the world that we don’t see. ” She knew Karen was going to die before the first table read of Season 4. wrote that eulogy and it spoke to the character so nicely: She died doing what she’d been meant to do all along — by saving someone who needed to be saved.
She was such a trouper all year, holding in this secret. We loved the hot mess that was Karen, but the character felt like she’d gone as far as we wanted to take her and as far as Yunjin wanted to play her, so it felt like the right time. We are not going to suddenly become a show about April and Joss pushing swings on the playground and chatting about breast milk.
It’s kind of out there, but it’s more about growing our group of women in the most organic way possible.
Despite everyone’s mad hate for the finale — I’m still absorbing it, that’s fine  — I love that so many photos that accompany the stories about us show our core group of women hugging or toasting with glasses of wine.
Because of her kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people suffering from pain or confusion are drawn to Kim for help, which she readily gives.
Sometimes Kim's soft-heartedness is taken advantage of.
If her needs for emotional sustenance and love are not satisfied, overeating (especially sweets) can become a problem.
