Eads says he likes the intensity and the chances he's had of late to work closely with Fishburne. "I'm running around with Laurence quite a bit, not necessarily as a teacher but as a foot soldier that pushes the story along when need be," he says. "The thing about our show is it's a team effort. It's an ensemble — we're like the Justice League and everyone has their power. I told Laurence, 'You know what your super power is now, and we can all come together as a team to contribute the puzzle.'"

Executive producer Carol Mendelsohn echoes those sentiments. "It's a joy for all of us to watch Ray and Nick interface and collaborate on cases together," she says. "Langston has become part of the team, and I think it's really become a family. I think it's really firing on all cylinders."

But it's not all about Langston. Mendelsohn says the show will increasingly take opportunities to dig further into Nick's personal life. But Eads says that viewers shouldn't expect to necessarily go home with his character.
