His costar Freema Agyeman issues out that Helen “obviously doesn’t see that he’s taken the ring off. So she just gets this bang on the door, and it’s him looking kind of keen. I think she’s been ready for a while, but I think she acknowledged or acknowledges that he has to be in a place where he’s ready.”
