Sunday marked Noth's final appearance on The Equalizer in what Deadline is calling a "satisfactory conclusion" for his character William Bishop. When Noth's firing was announced on Dec. 20 -- four days after The Hollywood Reporter published two accusations of sexual assault against Noth -- there were reports that he had only one more episode that had already filmed. What wasn't known was that Noth's final episode would air so soon. According to Deadline's Rosy Cordero, Sunday's episode, titled “Separated,” provided an easy way for the writers to move on from Noth's Bishop character. Cordero adds: "It is as yet unknown how the show will address his departure, but after Bishop reconnected with his secret son in the prior episode, 'When Worlds Collide,' it would be easy to send him off into the sunset without much effort."
