“Okay guys, so to get this one out of the way early… for now, yes, Nathan West will be gone. The decision was mine. [Executive Producer] Frank Valentini and I sat down to talk as gentlemen, and while he was disappointed, he gave me a better send-off than I ever could have asked for, and I will always be grateful.”

In addition, there were some great scenes by Hoves (Faison), Wes Ramsey (Peter/Heinrik) and Finola Hughes (Anna)… just what is Anna hiding? I guess we’ll have to tune in to find out…
