    I care. I enjoy Strike Back and now I’m bummed that we will have to wait longer for the 4th season. I’m glad to know Stapleton is OK. The show would not be the same without him.

      I am also glad he is recovering and doing well, and happy to hear he will be back on the show, the show won’t be that interesting without Damian Scott, next to his mate…
