In the heart-wrenching Season 3 finale, Detective Jamie Whelan and his partner, Detective Bobby Reyes, were hot on the trail of Kyle Wilkie, the mastermind behind a notorious crime-for-hire website. A fateful shootout ensued, resulting in Whelan being shot in the neck by Kyle. Despite his injury, Whelan selflessly prioritized capturing the criminal and instructed paramedics to tend to Kyle first, as his capture was crucial in dismantling the website.
His spine had been severed by the bullet, leaving him paralyzed and dependent on a breathing machine. Whelan was rushed to the hospital, but the bullet had already severed his spine. Whelan made the difficult decision to end his own life, and he asked Reyes to turn off the machine. This was a twist that broke everyone’s hearts. However, Reyes could not bear the thought of granting his partner’s request, which resulted in a tearful phone call between Whelan and Jet Slootmaekers, the person he was currently romantically involved with. Shortly after, Whelan’s father arrived and presumably fulfilled his son’s wishes, resulting in his heartbreaking passing.
