Boyd says Scola is a lot of different things. “He’s interesting, he’s sarcastic, he’s witty, he’s irreverent,” says Boyd during an interview with CBS. “He doesn’t really have time for B.S. He’s not about to get played by people. He’s not apologetic about what he has to do. He has a job and he’s here to do it. That’s what I like about him; he’s suspicious of everybody. He’s got a little bit of attitude.”

Scola is haunted by the death of his brother, who was killed during the events that took place at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Boyd explains a little about Scola’s history.

“My character’s background is that his brother died in 9/11,” Boyd tells CBS. “I went to the 9/11 Memorial, and that was an incredibly powerful experience. I really needed to understand someone coming into a life of service in law enforcement after a devastating loss.”

What happened last time on ‘FBI’

During FBI Season 3 Episode 12 (titled “Fathers and Sons”), the team investigates a case where a father (Octavio Diaz) paid someone to give up their kidney so he could save his dying son. Octavio is so desperate to get his son a new kidney that he kidnaps two doctors. He’s running out of time, so he forces them to do the transplant right away.

This is a tough case for Jubal (Jeremy Sisto) because his son is also sick. He learns during this episode that his son has leukemia. Jubal identifies with the kidnapper because he would also do anything to save his son’s life. Jubal worked hard to make sure the team found a transplant surgeon to complete the young boy’s surgery after one of the surgeons is shot during a heated exchange.

FBI airs Tuesdays on CBS at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
