'FBI: Most Wanted' Season 2 Premiere: Who is Marie? Filthy Rich's Rachel York plays gambler Byron's new fiancée
Although her recent role as Tina Sweet might have been cut short with 'Filthy Rich' being canceled after its first season, it seems like she will stick around as Marie in 'FBI: Most Wanted'
Spoilers for 'FBI: Most Wanted'
On the premiere episode of CBS's 'FBI: Most Wanted', we're introduced to a stressful case when a young man named Kyle Dennison ends up under the influence of an adult hell-bent on hurting the rich who he perceives to be gaining off the pandemic while people "like them" suffer from food stamps. On the interpersonal front of the characters though, we were introduced to FBI Agent Jess LaCroix's (Julian McMahon) father Byron (Terry O’Quinn), and his new girlfriend, "half his age", Marie played by the stunning Rachel York.
If you're wondering where you've seen York, we can jog your memory. Most recently, she was seen on FOX's Southern gothic dramedy 'Filthy Rich' where she played the role of Tina Sweet. Many may also remember her from 'Power' (2014) where she played the role of Tina Schulman, 'The Mick' (2017) where she played 'Dr Goodby', 'LA Law' (1992) where she played Cheryl Brennen and from the 2003 CBS biographical film 'Lucy' where she played the role of Lucille Ball. York has also had an impressive Broadway career — she played Fantine in 'Les Miserables' from 1991-1992 and as Marguerite in Broadways' 'The Scarlet Pimpernel'. She even released an album titled 'Let's Fall in Love'! Her other credits include 'The Naked Truth' (1997-1998), 'Hannah Montana' (2008), 'Cradle Swapping' (2017) and 'Elementary' (2017).
Although her recent role as Tina Sweet might have been cut short with 'Filthy Rich' being canceled after its first season airs, it seems like the Broadway star will be sticking around as Marie in 'FBI: Most Wanted'. From what we were shown in the first series Season 2 premiere, 'Rampage' she's been with Byron for two years. It would be interesting to see how she fits into the dynamic of the LaCroix-Skye family. So far it seems as though her relationship with Jess's father Byron is strong - they have been two years, something that Jess had no idea about. It was a shock to Jess that Byron brought Marie along when he came to visit his family. Jess even boldy points out that Marie is half Byron's age.
Byron and Jess have a complicated relationship it seems due to the fact that Byron is a gambling addict. With the season premiere, 'Rampage' we also saw that father-son still don't get along even after not seeing each other for a while due to the pandemic lockdown. What is interesting to see though, is that Marie seems to be trying to heal their relationship. During dinner, when the Jess and Byron start bickering, Marie chips in saying that this should be a "happy" time since they haven't seen each other for too long. She also then tells Byron that they should tell Jess "the news" — Jess, as always is hesistance and skeptical, even when Marie reveals that she is getting married to his father. Although she seems to be a sweet presence so far, not justifying Byron's attacks towards his son - so she might play a bigger role in the upcoming episodes, or so we hope considering Byron and Marie will be staying for more than a weekend — to Jess' disappointment.
'FBI: Most Wanted' airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm EST on CBS.
