Executive producer Matt Olmstead explained to TV line that they intended to shock fans with Shay’s sudden death.
He explained, “As we walked in, we knew that if we were going to do it, it had to be for someone who was going to give us a big impact, as opposed to a lesser known character, which would amount to a fist pulled.
