What happened to William Bishop in The Equalizer?
The Equalizer’s first season featured William being introduced to the audience. Robyn McCall’s companion is William Bishop. Robyn and Bishop have a long relationship. William, an ex-CIA director, was a mentor to Robyn during her early days at the agency. Bishop is now a private security firm manager after he retired from the CIA. He also assists Robyn with vigilante actions and liaisons between Robyn’s and the CIA.
Episode 7 of The Equalizer season 2 revealed that William has a son called Zaed. When Bishop discovers that Hassan Talib, a terrorist leader, is behind him, everything turns around. Robyn was informed by Bishop that Zaed had been abducted by the terrorist group. Some of the most sensitive information in the CIA is at risk. Robyn decided that Bishop’s life would be saved by her.
As Zaed didn’t know his father, Bishop and Zaed became friends during the rescue. Harry’s brave actions ensured that Zaed was safe and soundly rescued. The next episode saw Bishop pull some strings with President Obama and Harry was released from prison. The FBI charged him with breaching CIA servers during the mission.
Chris Noth fired from The Equalizer Season 3

At least four women have accused Noth in the past of sexual misconduct. While Noth has since denied the accusations against him, the scandal is believed to be the main reason for his departure from The Equalizer Season 3.
