In an enlightening March 2022 interview with Shondaland, Luke expressed his admiration for the unique dynamic between Colin and Penelope. "Their relationship is [has] been a real slow burn. There are so many other characters [who] are introduced and love stories that we’ve seen through the last two seasons that have developed quite quickly, or that there’s been an instant spark, an instant connection," he shared.

Luke explained what distinguishes Colin and Penelope's unfolding story from others within the series. "But what I love about Colin and Penelope is the longevity of the relationship and how long it’s taken to get to even where it is now, which is not even considered a relationship. I really enjoy playing that."
