Back in the World (#11.17)
25 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

So in this episode Gallant comes back and also takes time to visit Neela. As I said before I have trouble caring for their "relationship" as it has no basis. Yet at the same time they have done good work in this episode showing the chemistry between them. Sharif Atkins is petty good of an actor both when he was telling what happened to him in Iraq and when he was in bed with Neela. Him leaving without her being able to say actual good bye but just looking at each other was well played, although it is hard to buy why she could not have gone to him for a few minutes to say good bye. They manage to get out of traumas for a few minutes all the time. And I have a feeling they kind of spoiled for us that he will get killed in Iraq? Otherwise there would not be this letter he gave her in case something happens to him. They obviously want to use it at some point. Which is too bad, I liked his character.
