“Black Box” burst onto the primetime scene with its premiere on April 24, and quickly set up a complicated relationship between bipolar neurosurgeon Catherine Black (Kelly Reilly) and new playboy surgeon Ian Bickman (Ditch Davey). But is this the beginning of a relationship audiences will root for, or is it the start of a poisonous relationship between two peers?

“I think that that’s the beauty of the show,” Davey tells Zap2it in the above interview. “I think there is a lot of grey area in the relationships and within the texture of the show. We don’t know absolutely. I think there are two sides to the story.”

“We really do go on a journey together,” Reilly adds. “It would give too much away if we told you what happens. But there’s potentially a very toxic relationship, but I think it is also potentially something that could be really healing for both of them. It just depends who decides what sort of behavior is going to win.”

Watch the entire interview above to find out whether Ian could find out Catherine’s secret, some of the cases both actors are excited about in Season 1 and what makes Catherine Black so redeeming. “Black Box” airs on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
