Well except one.

She said:

We want to stay as true to life as possible. They had a great conversation at the end of season two and it was just about like, hey, she’s moving on Daniel, sometimes we have those conversations…You never see the exes again. And it’s okay! You gotta explore life without Lawrence.

Prentice Penny, a showrunner for the hit HBO show, said:

At the end of the day, we’re always trying to tell stories that are true and authentic. We were in the writers room and we were initially talking about, OK, well what is he doing?… Well, he’s not in her life right now. It was hard to make stories around that.” It seems closure is closure for these two … at least for now. “We just said, well, if he’s not around, he’s not around. Let’s just deal with the reality of what her life is now. Let’s be true to that, when you breakup and you have closure.

When asked about negative fan reactions to this development, Issa said “I don’t care!”

We know it’s a hard time for the #LawrenceHive but you’ll get over this like y’all got over Tasha.
