With an impressive milestone achieved, Morrison can now appreciate 100 episodes worth of hard work. “Five and a half years later, here we are,” said Morrison. “It’s been quite a ride. We’ve had extreme highs and terrible losses as well, but it’s been a ride. We are such a family, and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”
