Neither Vance nor the show’s makers have officially commented on the actor’s exit from the series. However, given that Vance was only associated with the series in a guest-starring capacity, it is understandable that his departure wasn’t announced in advance.

Thus, the series ends the long-running dispute between Quinn and Robyn. While Vance is yet to announce his forthcoming projects, it is unlikely that viewers will see him again in ‘The Equalizer.’
