Noah’s troubles were meant to happen in Chapter 3. In my first script for that story, Cass asked Noah to come with her to Morty’s mansion, and there he would go through his blood-shifting. It got cut because it got in the way of the story, and I figured that making Cass AFRAID of Noah seeing her in her goat form would be a more interesting plot.

Here, Noah’s blood-shift proved to be a great opportunity to keep him from helping Cass and the others with the solution to the shrinking problem. I wanted to show that Cass was capable of solving problems herself. In Chapters 4 and 5, she played a significant role, but Noah was really the one to come in and save the day.
