Nonetheless, Remy is driven by a personal tragedy because the homicide of his youthful brother pushed him into the FBI. He additionally has a tricky relationship together with his mom, who brazenly stated she wished Remy had died as an alternative and now has Alzheimer’s.

So I used to be actually joyful that individuals type of, even from the primary episode, actually appreciated Remy and thought he was a superb chief. I believe he settled in fairly properly with everybody, I’ve to say.”
McDermott famous how he enjoys Remy having a barely totally different relationship with every crew member.
“He has totally different dynamics with every one of many crew members and I believe he approaches every one a bit in another way. With Hana, it’s very actual and enjoyable. With Kristin [Alexa Davalos], it’s extra of a teasing relationship. With Ortiz [Miguel Gomez], there’s a camaraderie there with him. The advantage of Remy is that he all the time type of will get in with folks, he empathizes with folks, he is aware of, he listens, and he does that even with the criminals, by the best way. In case you discover he does that on a weekly foundation with them. He listens, he hears them out. And that’s a very enjoyable factor to play.”
McDermott additionally admitted he’s hoping to discover Remy assembly Barnes, who took a leave of absence from the crew (Roxy Sternberg took time away for maternity go away).

“Each one of many crew’s members of the family are threatened, so that actually heightens the case, and we’ve got to place them in a secure home to be sure that they’re safe and [safe]. That was actually one thing additional that occurs on this explicit episode, which I believe makes everybody be on edge extra so than they usually are.”
McDermott is generally quiet on extra however hints Season 4 could discover extra of Remy’s growing romance with Judge April Brooks (Wendy Moniz) and his softer facet.
“Once I studied the present earlier than I got here on, I actually felt that it was essential to infuse humor and playfulness within the present. I didn’t see plenty of that once I was watching it, so I actually needed to have that high quality so as to add to the present as a result of we’re coping with such a darkish material every week and I assumed it was good to type of juxtapose the humor and the playfulness of Remy. Now we’re actually seeing that different facet to him, the softer facet to him by way of this romance. And that’s a terrific factor to play, to have the ability to try this after which to exit into the sphere and catch a fugitive. It’s a dream come true, this function.”

And I believe that clearly haunts him. However I believe even beneath that’s the truth that there’s part of him that looks like he was by no means actually liked.
I believe it’s one thing that’s gonna be ongoing. It’s one of many causes it’s very private — in the event you discover with Remy, every case is private. It’s not simply an FBI agent going out chasing folks. There’s one thing that goes on in every case that’s essential for Remy to meet for his personal psychology that’s linked to his brother. In order that’s one thing that we’re gonna see increasingly of as we go ahead.”
