Dickinson gave fans more support for that theory by ending the most recent episode with “Ivy” showing through the credits following steamy sex scenes between Hailee Steinfeld’s Emily and Ella Hunt’s Sue.

Outside Always released on December 10, Dickinson’s birthday, Swift said in an interview that the cover art was partially inspired by “the girl sleepwalking through the woods in her nightgown in 1830,” which is the year Dickinson was born.

Dickinson also ended one of her poems to Gilbert with “forevermore.”

“Ivy” in particular seems to be from the point of view of a woman who is married to a man, much like Sue is married to Austin, brother of Emily (Adrian Blake Enscoe), but has an affair with someone else. is different.

Dickinson showrunner Alena Smith told The Hollywood Reporter that it was the “myth” surrounding the song that fans developed that contributed to her wanting it for the episode.

“I really wanted to use that song – I mean I love that song and fans have also developed the mythology of it as a song involving Emily and Sue,” Smith said. “And Devoe Yates, our music supervisor, went out and saw if he could get it and we’re lucky Taylor said yes.”

Smith explained that the Dickinson team originally intended to have the song score the scene but later discovered that the “return point” worked better for the scene with the “hit of joy” from the song in the credits.

“Initially when we shot that scene, we thought a song would be played while the scene was happening like in the volcano scene. [in season one] where we had the great song ‘Your Best American Girl’ by Mitski, and when I got the director to cut the clip with that song, I really felt like giving up on the song,” Smith explained.

“I called Hailee and I called our composers Drum & Lace and Ian Hultquist and I said, ‘I want to share this back and make it almost like a holy experience. about this simple rhythmic rhythm suggests the presence of sound and breathing and actually feels there is an act of making love going on, but also an act of poetry going on and they are connected. connected together. ‘

So we actually developed a lot of the content in the post, with Hailee doing an ADR session, because there’s no recording on the set of anyone breathing, it’s all the music playing. at that point, so the fact that we found that breath and that score comes back incredibly fair. Then when Taylor Swift’s song pops up at the end, it just increases the joy you get from it. “
