At the end of the episode, Reyes showed up at Jet’s apartment, where the two shared a steamy kiss — and revealed that it was not their first makeout session.

As the credits rolled, so many questions were left unanswered. When did the affair start? Where is it going? As fans process the shocking development, the cast shared some thoughts on the matter with NBC Insider.

What did Ainsley Seiger say about the kiss between Jet Slootmaekers and Bobby Reyes on Law & Order: Organized Crime?

Seiger, who plays clever OCCB staffer Jet, told NBC Insider that she was “stunned” when she read about the passionate moment between her and co-star Gonzalez in the episode’s script.

Seiger said it took her a while to get used to the idea of the affair “because it’s so jarring and you’re always rooting for your character to, I guess, do the right thing, or you want them to be well... I want Jet to be well and happy.”

How will Jet Slootmaekers and Bobby Reyes' affair affect the Organized Crime squad?

“It complicates the relationship within the squad... interpersonally, on a different level with everyone,” Seiger told NBC Insider, adding that the drama is both interesting to watch and to portray onscreen.

The actress said that the most complicated part of Jet and Reyes’ kiss for her, was the fact that Reyes is married — revealing that, while she'd heard some chatter about the moment from others, it wasn’t until she read the script that she really felt the weight of the scene.

“I had only heard whispers from a lot of other people about what was going on,” Seiger said. “So I’m getting a lot of information out of context from a lot of different people, and I finally read it and I was like, ‘Oh it is happening. Jet, no!’ But I think she'll come out of it OK, at least that's my hope for the season."

Truitt added, “If you’ve ever been in a situation like that, it’s just awkward, like there’s this awkward energy."
