Bar Paly replaces Miguel Ferrer?
However, fans are nervous for Miguel Ferrer. LL Cool J, who portrays Sam Hanna, hinted that a character will die in season 8. Given Ferrer’s alleged health condition, fans could not help but think that Owen Granger will make his exit. Some fans also pointed out that Paly’s return is the show’s way of preparing for Ferrer’s departure.
Spoilers indicated that Paly will return just for the eleventh season. However, that did not stop fans from making theories that it is just a set-up. Some even claimed that the show will really kill off Owen Granger. There are already rumors that Daniela Ruah will leave the show due to her pregnancy. If another character will exit, the show’s viewership might drastically go down.
