Meanwhile, fans were certainly left somewhat confused after it was confirmed that Q'orianka Kilcher would be coming back to the hit show.

Q'orianka plays ruthless attorney Angela Blue Thunder, who was last seen in the show's third season back in 2020. Viewers were left confused following Angela's absence in season four, with one Reddit user posting: "What happened to Angela Blue Thunder? It seemed like she was going to become a bigger character. But we didn't even see her in season four at all."

Another added: "I just thought about this watching the marathon… she had so much potential," while a third commented: "She fell into a plot hole."
