The season premiere, titled “And They Lived Happily Ever After”, was dedicated to Mark Blum.
As the episode ends, the words “In loving memory, Mark Blum” come up on the screen.
Some viewers were left wondering why the episode was dedicated to Blum. Sadly, it is because the actor died last year of complications related to Covid-19.
The 69-year old American actor played bookstore owner Mr Mooney in the series. He died on 25 March, 2020.
His other performance include Succession, in which he played Bill Lockheart, and Ira Langstrom in Elementary.
Ahead of these shows, Blum was best known for appearing opposite Madonna and Rosanna Arquette in the 1985 comedy Desperately Seeking Susan.
His other film credits include Crocodile Dundee and Blind Date. He also appeared in a host of TV shows, ranging from The West Wing and Frasier to Billions and The Good Fight.
