“It was his plan, and he’s dead because of it,” says Jamie Bell, who plays Abe, in a new behind-the-scenes video. “So I think everything that’s kind of built into that very complicated father-son dynamic is coming out — and his shortcomings as a spy and as a man. It’s a real kind of glimpse into his headspace as we begin the episode.”
However, once Abe learns that Simcoe is the one behind his father’s death, everything changes.
“Simcoe’s always been the thorn in his side really, and the fact that it’s him that’s responsible for his father’s death — so I think when he learns that news, he’s purely motivated by vengeance,” says Bell.
“Abe is going to become obsessed with getting revenge on Simcoe as Washington is obsessed with Arnold — and these two obsessions meet,” adds Executive Producer Craig Silverstein.
