Wolfe is Scott’s hero and he’s ready to drop his team in a heartbeat if it means getting to work with someone he holds in such high regard. No big shocker, but hero worship will always bite you in the ass. His team rightly gives him shit for taking it out on them.

I mean yeah, it’s creepy, but Scott needs something to anchor him.
It’s rare when a TV series can create a compelling and tragic character in less than half an hour but god damn, "Eulogy" makes it look like nothing.
Jonathan Wolfe, a veteran of Rick Hunter’s mission, is discovered to still be alive on Earth and Scott is overjoyed.
