In last week's episode of the CBS series, viewers experienced the biggest shock possible, after the original cast member, and a fan-favorite was killed. The agent was killed in a shoot-out, during his quest to find his brother's killer.
The fictional special agent was faced with the criminal responsible for his brother's death, thanks to Sue-Anne, who led him to the cabin. But as the scene unfolded, the good cop ended up taking a bullet for the lady, leading to his demise.
After starring for six years on the CBS show, Lasalle was given an honorable death, befitting of a hero, but not even his heroic ending could pacify his angry fans.
