    In case you don't remember, George died at the end of Season 5 — and Knight talked to Deadline about how it felt to return to the show.

    "It was incredible. It was just an overwhelming feeling of love in that moment," he said.

    "We were apart from everybody quite a bit because that was a drone shot, and so it was just the four of us, and the sun was setting, and this big fly buzzing around our heads, and it filled me with just a lot of joy."
