It's sad when anyone takes their own life, and especially so when you seem to get to know them over the course of a television series. It's poignant when he says, "Theatre pleases me very much, I will never stop. Itís contact with the public."
My initial reaction to Remy wasn't favorable, but I came around. He has a certain place and his character really added a great foil for Indy. Fighting with Indy over the correct translation of the Spanish command to kill him or not really won me over. The humor was subtile and the "drama" so to say really caught my attention.
