The Season 4 finale of FBI: Most Wanted put Remy Scott through the wringer. Is it possible the team leader might be considering leaving the FBI?
Caution: This article contains SPOILERS for the FBI: Most Wanted Season 4 finale
“Heaven Falling” had a short case for the team as they stopped a hostage situation at a bank before it turned deadly. The team then focused on Remy trying to find out who truly killed his brother Mikey years before. Remy had spent decades convinced Larry Davis had done it only to realize the prosecutor of the time hid some evidence.
Remy met a witness named Cassie Fortner, who said she saw Mikey in a fight with another white youth that Remy realized was a classmate. The cops of the time simply found it better to pin the murder on a black drug dealer than a privileged white kid and buried the evidence that would have exonerated Davis.
Remy talked to one classmate, Benji, who seemed okay, but Remy realized he was acting shady. Benji was soon on the run and killed Cassie. His rich mother tried to help him get out of the country, covering for him as she always had. Eventually, Remy caught Benji on a train, the man tearfully confessing he’d killed Mikey in a fight over a girl and was arrested.
In a bitter moment, Remy tried to call up Davis to apologize for wrongly blaming him for Mikey’s murder all these years. Tragically, Davis had just died of cancer with no idea he’d been exonerated.
Could Remy be leaving FBI: Most Wanted?
Throughout the case, Remy was clearly shaken. The reason he’d joined the FBI was because he felt they’d failed to save Mikey and wanted to make sure others didn’t suffer that fate. He talked of how he believed he was saving the system only to find Mikey’s killer skated by for years thanks to prejudiced cops and a prosecutor wanting to make a name for himself. “The system is broken.”
Remy also had to second guess himself as he’d spent so long blaming an innocent man for his brother’s death. That had Remy questioning his own instincts. To top it off, learning Mikey had been fighting over a girl and wanting to buy drugs made Remy realize he’d been idolizing his brother a bit too much, and “I never really knew him.”
That crisis of faith may only be temporary. There’s no word that Dylan McDermott is leaving FBI: Most Wanted and the final scene had Remy meeting Mikey’s son, who he never knew about. Remy will likely use this experience to drive him more and try to make sure others don’t suffer the injustice Davis did to build the character up for FBI: Most Wanted.
