The L Word is finally coming back! After what seems like forever, the last season of The L Word will premiere tomorrow. LAIst sat down with Jon Wolfe Nelson, who plays the love interest of Max (Daniela Sea), to dish about the final season, the other cast members, and what really went down during that man on Max love scene.

So the new season of the L word starts Sunday. Are you excited?
Of course I'm excited...and a little bit sad that it's actually over. All my little bits and pieces have been in the can since the end of September. So, all these months of waiting to see the finished product have been with great anticipation.

Tell us a litle about your character.
Tom Mater comes to LA with his pal, world renowed sculptor, Jodi Lerner who is played by Marlee Matlin. Tom is an artist too, but not with the audience or money that Jodi commands. He gets to live his ART life working and traveling as her interpreter. Tom is Robin to her Batman...(laughs)

Now tell me absolutely everything in minute detail about filming your love scene with Max.
Minute detail? Wow, Elise, that was over a year and a half ago. That happened in Season five.

I can tell you I remember being mortified having to stand there holding my robe up so the nice make-up artist lady could crouch on her knees and sponge a tan on my ass. Daniela and I were both a bit nervous I recall. It's all very choreographed you know? Just acting, like anything else. We've have all had to act during sex right? You know, pretending you like it when really you just want it over....(laughs). Same thing, only with 20 or so strangers standing around trying not to watch. It's a bit humorous actually.

Are you sure that's everything?
Oh yeah, there's that little nylon pouch they made me stuff my junk in and tighten to elastic so there's no danger of it escaping during the simulation.
