In December, Chris Noth was fired from “The Equalizer” after he was accused of sexual assault by two women.
The drama makers revealed how Noth’s character, William Bishop, had to be written off of the Queen Latifah-run show.
The last episode of “The Equalizer” that the character of Noth appeared in was the Season 2 episode named “Separated,” which aired January 2 and was filmed before he got off from the series. Six episodes have aired since then, in the absence of Noth’s Bishop, including “Pulse,” which gave the streamers the explanation for where the character has been and his off-screen death.
During Sunday’s episode of the second season, former Robyn McCall (Queen Latifah) learns that the Bishop, her mentor, and a former CIA director have spent the past two months helping the CIA with an investigation into a flight case.
Noth was removed from “The Equalizer” in December after a detailed investigation went through, revealed two women, the “Zoe” and “Lily,” had on different times approached the publication months apart and were accused of sexual harassment against Noth. According to them, the incidents occurred in Los Angeles in 2004 and New York in 2015.
Noth is said to have denied the allegations. He called them “categorically false” and claimed that the encounters were consensual.
