    That is a very different plot. I like the switch to Mongolia. It is fresh and new. Dzaya is a really strong female character. But should there be more interaction between Miles and Khongi? They don’t seem to spend enough time together to get the sparks going. I really like Cholon’s speech.
    How about a chase scene is LA with the cars? Too much?

      Hector, I could not have Miles and Khongi having any sexual tension. He is in the body of her brother. That would be a weird. Miles can show it, but not say it.
      Episode 2 (in development) he goes back to Bulgan as himself. Now he has to turn on the charm on a woman who has no idea who he is.
      Hope that helps.
