FBI: Most Wanted Season 3 Episode 16 will be one of the most exciting episodes of the season. It's more than an episode since Jess LaCroix's death. This is the episode before Dylan McDermott is meant to take over as the new lead.
We'll have to wait to learn more about this character, and in the meantime, Most Wanted may rely on other franchise names to carry the day. As a result, Alana De La Garza appears in FBI: Most Wanted Season 3 Episode 16, titled Decriminalized.
The synopsis for FBI: Most Wanted Season 3 Episode 16 goes:
You have to add her baby to all of this for Barnes. She promptly returned to work, with one of her objectives being to continue doing what she does so well. However, in this episode, she begins to question whether she made the right decision
Why Julian McMahon’s Jess LaCroix Exited Most Wanted
Special Agent Jess LaCroix on FBI: Most Wanted met his end after three seasons. Julian McMahon's character died while defending a woman from her abusive ex-husband.
“The fact that it happened literally in the heart of New York City was something that I thought was perfect for the character,” showrunner David Hudgins told Variety. “It’s like he died saving the town he loved.”
McMahon is believed to have departed the show to pursue his own creative endeavors, one of which is rumored to be his starring role in writer David Ludlow's upcoming film Justice.
Meanwhile, McDermott's character is set to offer a new pace and dynamic to the show, approaching the Fugitive Task Force's difficulties from a different angle and with a far different style than predecessor Jess.
Dick Wolf, the brain behind shows like Law & Order, Law & Order: Organized Crime, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., FBI, Law & Order: SVU, and others, is no stranger to McDermott. His character Richard Wheatley previously appeared on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Organized Crime, but he will portray a new character on FBI: Most Wanted.
FBI: Most Wanted Season 3 Episode 16 airs Mar. 29, and McDermott’s on Apr. 12 at 10/9c on CBS.
