|Blue On Blue|
|List of Appearances|
In the past, Natalie went on a world tour, and during her time in Colombia, she became romantically involved with a man named David. David turned out to be a drug trafficker and packed drugs in Natalie's suitcase when she was preparing to fly back to Canada. Both she and David were arrested, but thanks to General Braddock pulling some strings, Natalie was released. As Sam says, "Trouble has a way of finding her."
Natalie first appears in the series when she moves to Toronto to look for a job. She winds up imposing on her brother in many ways. Natalie moves into Sam's apartment without much warning and does things like use his paypal account to buy professional clothes without Sam's permission. It's not that she has no shame; it's just that her brother has his life together, and Natalie doesn't. She might have her freedom, but he has stability--and stability is something Natalie needs.
When Natalie first meets Spike, her interest in him is immediate. The two date briefly, but in Blue On Blue, Spike ends the relationship because he doesn't want it to affect his working/friendly relationship with Sam. On the same day, Natalie is kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend David. Spike leaves the team to help her and ends up becoming a hostage when David threatens to kill Natalie. After they are rescued by Team One, their relationship is once again brought into question when she kisses him on the cheek, and they hug. However, it seems to be a goodbye kiss, and the two remain friends, with a lingering possibility for more.
