Zero to Hero
24 March 2019 | by scottsetchellSee all my reviews

Nathan takes over the life of Corey and turns him into a hero. He trains for months to walk a tightrope across a rooftop, where he will donate $5,000 to a breast cancer foundation as Corey. He sends him to get a routine checkup, where a professional makeup artist maps his face so Nathan can transform into Corey. Nathan brings Corey to a trailer in the desert and leaves him there for two weeks.

Nathan promotes his stunt as Corey on a radio station. He makes a dating profile and meets a girl for dinner. The date goes very well and Nathan is left feeling more confident in someone else's skin.

The big day arrives and they retrieve Corey from the desert and Nathan gets him up to speed with his new life. Nathan walks the tightrope many times before handing the honors to Corey, who kisses his new girlfriend, gives a speech and presents the check for $5,000.

This is a great finale to season 3. Nathan is convinced that anyone can be a hero and he goes above and beyond to prove it. The date at the bar shows an alter ego of Nathan that is extroverted and outgoing. I'm sure Nathan learned a lot about himself in becoming someone else.
