Question: Any news on whether Shane West will be making an appearance on ER this season? Any hope for Reela fans?

Answer: Although I know of no immediate plans for West to return, I can tell you that in Episode 4 Neela mentions receiving a letter from Ray, whom she says is doing as good as can be expected given the circumstances. In that same episode, Katey is putting together a care package for him, and even floats the possibility of visiting him "in a few weeks."
