I'll be privy to a dance club or something and just be essentially sober and watch things happen. I'm not in the middle of the dance floor, you know? It'll be her first long-term break from the road in about five years. I don't know where to put it yet." A topic for her next record, perhaps. "I'm looking forward to having time to build and rip it up and start again," she says. Or if they do, it's only as an asterisk to an asterisk—like a tangent to a tangent of pop culture. Read on to hear Annie tease Fiona’s upcoming romance, Jordy discuss her singer-songwriter aspirations, and other cast members chime in with their two cents about filming scenes with Adam and Fiona.
