Zoe McLellan, Shalita Grant, and Lucas Black left the present in previous seasons, however their characters made such an impression, their absence was noticeable.

In the case of Special Agent Khoury, many are on the fence as to how priceless she is to the group — who Pride treats as a household — as a complete. If she left, little can be affected by way of camaraderie or love loss.
