Are Things Over Between Eric & Calleigh? – CSI Files
Eric Delko and Calleigh Duquesne are the oldest members of Horatio's team. Due to the fact that Calleigh had the x-ray machine going, Eric couldn't help . in their relationship, you can see that Eric is just a little bit protective of Calleigh in. Eric offers to help her out, she decides its not a good idea. Calleigh But thanks to Delko (Adam Rodriguez), Calleigh may not be a single mother. Eric & Calleigh's relationship had plenty of time to develop and progress. "I, Eric Delko, take you, Calleigh Duquesne, to be my beloved wife, to have He pulled her into a deep kiss, passionate, their tongues dancing.
It's not long before the gossip makes it to Calleigh, who sours considerably and ruthlessly sticks up for Eric. While everyone else, including Horatio, wonders if Eric was really doing drugs, Calleigh refuses to believe it.
Stetler finds out and is set to fire Eric. During her interview with Stetler, Calleigh lies and tells him that she's never seen him buying or using drugs, or with drug paraphernalia.
Horatio and Eric go to Rio to catch Marisol's killer. While they're there, Calleigh keeps track of them through their cell phones' GPS systems. When Eric goes missing and nearly gets killed, it is Calleigh who discovers his signal has been lost and calls Horatio, who finds Eric and saves his life.
When Calleigh is pushed off the road while heading back to the lab, Eric is second only to Horatio in asking how she's doing. He's also the one trying to offer her words of confidence and support when Calleigh starts to doubt herself for not noticing every detail in a life or death situation. By this point in their relationship, you can see that Eric is just a little bit protective of Calleigh in most situations and doesn't like anyone messing with her.
Eric and Ryan end up with the crime scene when a boy is decapitated doing trick driving in a waterfront parking lot. Calleigh comes into the lab when Eric starts to process the evidence and proceeds to tease him about the number of bottles he has to process and how he got the bottles over doing DNA and trace.
Then she sticks around to verify Eric's suspicions about the fingerprints found on the bottles. Eric is very irritated by Jake working a case that was originally his. Eric shows up at the lab in a suit, and Calleigh doesn't hide her appreciation for his good looks, calling him "hot stuff" as they flirt a little.
Later in the episode, Eric witnesses an assault and steps in to defend the woman. It turns out that the couple are married con artists who sue Eric for attacking the husband. Eric goes to Calleigh for advice, but ends up settling out of court to keep people from looking into the lab's activities, especially after his and Horatio's unsanctioned trip to Rio. Calleigh comforts him in the end, telling him that she's got his back. While looking for a kidnapping victim with Horatio, Eric is shot in the head.
Eric's heart stops a few times, but the doctor is able to stabilize him. While he is unconscious, Calleigh visits him and puts a crucifix in his hand.
Later, when she visits again, Eric is awake and sweetly whispers her name before asking for Mari. Not wanting to tell him that Mari is dead, Calleigh urges Eric to rest. Outside, she talks to Alexx, who reveals that fragments of the bullet are still lodged in Eric's brain, and that he may not be the guy that they've always known. Calleigh fights tears as she looks at Eric through the viewing glass. This is the first time we see her cry. Eric is back after being shot, but having memory and motor problems.
Calleigh confronts him when he messes up on some evidence, but unlike her explosive reactions with Ryan's mistakes, she's very tender and understanding of Eric.
Eric is much harder on himself, and wonders if he returned to work too soon and if he should stop working. Calleigh tells him that they need him. The con artist who sued Eric is back, and wondering why she hasn't been getting any money from the settlement.
Eric doesn't remember her due to his brain injury. Calleigh pulls him aside and explains the situation, and tells him to keep working on the case while she deals with the woman. Later, Eric thanks her for what she did, and Calleigh reassures him that he would've done the same for her. Eric explains that he's grateful for all of her help in the last year.
Calleigh appreciates the comment and, without giving it much thought, reaches up and kisses him on the cheek. Eric is shocked at first and they share an awkward moment before Calleigh walks away. Eric watches her leave with a huge grin on his face. After the kiss, the romantic and sexual tension between Eric and Calleigh escalates. While processing a scene, Calleigh gets a shard of glass in her finger.
Eric comes over quickly and removes it. The tension rises when Calleigh tenderly says his name as they share a long moment looking into each other's eyes. Eric chuckles nervously and breaks eye contact, only to notice that the piece of glass from her finger is an important piece of evidence.
Natalia teases Eric about his growing crush on Calleigh, where his reaction is bashful befuddlement, something completely unexpected from the formerly smooth Eric Delko. Eric steps off the elevator and spots Calleigh. He smiles brightly and watches her for a moment. Meanwhile, Calleigh is talking to Jake on the phone. When she realizes Eric is watching her, she quickly hangs up. Eric comments that it's great to see her smile, and asks if she was talking to Jake.
Calleigh confirms that she was talking to Jake and comments that she and Jake could go on a date if they weren't so busy with work, then quickly changes the subject. Jake is hurt in a car crash and, while processing a scene, Eric comments bitterly that he thinks Jake wishes Calleigh were with him at the hospital. Calleigh stops him and comments that she was at the hospital with Eric. Eric claims it was different when it was him.
Calleighh realizes that Eric is jealous and reassures him that she trusts him with her life while she doesn't know what she feels for Jake, essentially admitting that she's torn between them. Calleigh confirms that she has feelings for Eric, but because they work so closely in comparison to her and Jake, a relationship between them would be deemed inappropriate.
Eric smiles at the small victory he's garnered from her admission. At the end, Jake kisses Calleigh in the lobby and Eric witnesses the kiss morosely.
When Calleigh gets in the elevator with Jake, she looks back and realizes guiltily that Eric saw the whole thing as he stands there, looking heartbroken and a little bitter. Eric sees Calleigh at their latest crime scene and notes out loud that she has a nice new tan. When she tells him it's the product of five days in Antigua, he comments on Jake's identical tan, with obvious jealousy.
He later asks Jake how it was in Antigua and barely holds back a retort to Jake's answer. Eric's obvious displeasure in knowing that Calleigh and Jake went on a vacation away from Miami together is evident in his speculating looks for the rest of the episode. While on the scene of a car fire, Eric starts having visions of Speedle, captured in photos taken by a lab tech at Calleigh's request. Eric's face in these photos simply says "I'm seeing a dead person", which Calleigh later questions out of concern and Eric shrugs off.
Later, they find that someone has been using Speed's credit card, which Eric feels is validation for his visions. It is later revealed that Eric's visions are the result of his brain trying to rewire itself, which may cause similar hallucinations in the future.
Calleigh and Eric discover that Dan Cooper has been using Speed's credit card, which he stole from Speed's old locker. Eric is informed by Stetler of a pending change to the department's fraternization policy after he hugs Natalia while popping her shoulder back into place.
Eric lets it slip that if IA wants to reprimand Calleigh and Jake, they should do their own dirty work. Stetler's shock at this makes Eric realize his mistake, and when he tries to give Calleigh a heads up, he can't reach her. Jake's true colors come out when he tells Calleigh the situation and backs off instead of fighting for their relationship.
Calleigh gets upset with Eric, thinking he spilled the beans out of spite, and doesn't give him a chance to explain, which shows how hurt she is by his supposed betrayal.
Tensions are high between Eric and Calleigh as a result of the pending change in department policy in regards to personal relationships between coworkers. When Eric carefully notes that Calleigh is still upset with him, she tells him that she's not and that he only sped up the inevitable.
With that confirmation in mind, Eric tells Calleigh that if he had been in the same position, he would've changed shifts, making it clear that Calleigh means much more to him than the job. Calleigh is touched by his sincerity and seems to consider his words, likely making a quick mental comparison of Eric and Jake, who immediately tried to protect his career by backing away from their relationship.
This shows that Calleigh is at the top of Eric's priority list. Calleigh is invloved in an off-duty shooting that results in two deaths, and Eric is arguably the only person to make an effort to comfort her. He joins her at the back of the ambulance and asks the tough questions, providing words of comfort and holding her when she cries. Calleigh is the rock of the team and never dares show vulnerability, so it is significant that she even allows herself to cry in Eric's presence, much less in his arms.
This shows her implicit trust in him. Conversely, Jake shows very little interest in Calleigh's well-being, even after being confronted about the fact that his drinking has gotten her in more trouble with IAB. After Eric extracts the bullet that clears Calleigh, she smiles and thanks him. Her smile quickly wanes when Eric reveals Jake's involvement in finding the bullet.
Eric reluctantly comments that maybe Jake isn't so bad, but Calleigh's reaction makes it seem that she is questioning that herself. While processing a teenage suspect's room, Calleigh makes an off-handed remark about children by asking Eric if he can imagine raising kids given the hours they work. Eric immediately responds affirmatively, which elicits a surprised look from Calleigh.
Eric jokinglly suggests that Calleigh is implying that he wouldn't be a good father, but Calleigh replies by saying that she thinks he'd be a great dad and that she's merely surprised because he's never mentioned children before. Eric then makes a very loaded comment about starting a family when he finds the right girl. Before Calleigh can really respond, Eric finds the evidence they've been looking for and calls her attention to it, satisfied that he's made his point.
This is where Horatio is trying to get Kyle out of prison, and suddenly Julia appears out of nowhere. Calleigh is so determined to nail the murder charges on Julia. Eric gets the results and proves that Calleigh is wrong and jumped the gun with assumption. Calleigh and Eric go back to the scene of the murder to recreate the moment in order to discover the intended target. Calleigh stands at the altar and puts on the bride's fake veil. Eric has a smile on his face and looks at her longingly.
Calleigh smiles back and tells Eric that she'll kill him if he ever tells anyone. Eric returns the smile and gets back to work. When Eric realizes Calleigh's been kidnapped, he goes beyond the amount of worry typical between friends. When Cooper posts Calleigh's new number, Eric storms his condo and takes Cooper down, screaming at him for Calleigh's location.
Cooper denies having anything to do with Calleigh's disappearance and Eric promises to come back and kill him personally if anything happens to Calleigh. You can feel the emotions- concern and care- radiating from Eric. Calleigh is still missing and the team is trying to find her, especially Eric. Natalia notes the similarities between Calleigh's kidnapping and Kathleen Newberry's case. Eric adamantly informs her that he won't let the same thing happen to Calleigh, and Natalia cues in on Eric's feelings for Calleigh.
When they finally get Calleigh's location from a suspect that turned himself in, Eric, Ryan, Frank and Horatio converge on it, and Eric is the one that Calleigh goes to. At the end of the episode, Eric walks Calleigh out to her Hummer but insists that she's not going home alone. Calleigh tries to tell him that she's fine, but he insists on going with her.
He finally reveals that he doesn't know what he would've done if anything had happened to her, and she finally agrees to let him take her home. Calleigh covers for Eric again by claiming that his notes from "Ambush" are hers, which allows Stetler to pull her from their current case and force her to take a refresher course. Eric is completely against letting her take the reprimand for him until Calleigh tells him that she knows he can nail the criminal. At the end of the episode, they agree to keep the truth about the notes between the two of them.
This is the Season 6 finale. Calleigh is back on the job after finishing the refresher course that she took in Eric's place. Some of Calleigh's ballistics evidence turns out to be really old and goes off in the lab, causing havoc in Firearms. Calleigh tells Eric that he's her hero when he comes to the rescue and helps her find the one uncompromised bullet.
Rachel March daughter is killed. Marsh is allowed back into her office, she finds that all of her files are missing. Marsh is then killed while Eric and the team try to find her files. Eric starts going through these files upon finding them in hopes of finding her killer, and convinces Calleigh to help. Calleigh ends up with Eric's file and reads it apprehensively, learning of Eric's true feelings for her.
At the end, she tells Eric that he can always talk to her about anything, then walks away with a smile on her face- leaving Eric looking satisfied. Calleigh makes a comment about how often she forgets that Eric is part Russian when he shows how much he knows about Russian gang symbols and the Russian language. Eric and Calleigh deal with the death of their witness in a huge case. Calleigh's first reaction when the attack happens is panic and concern for Eric, as is his for her.
Eric also offers her words of sympathy when the witness' widow slaps Calleigh in the face for offering words of condolence. Eric and Calleigh disagree with each other in this episode. Eric believes that the killer they're looking for is another cop, in fact the cop that worked a case almost identical to their current case. Calleigh believes that this particular cop, although suspicious, is only trying to bring the killer to justice. Calleigh later agrees with Eric when Reggie Mastow, the cop in question, corners her in the elevator and gets overaggressive to the point where Calleigh feels the need to draw her attention.
Eric is somewhat involved in a shooting at a motel, where we later learn he's been living for a while. Eric tells Horatio that his condo is being remodeled, but when Calleigh arrives to work the scene and shows her concern for his safety, he tells her that he's just trying to figure some stuff out. We later find out that Eric has discovered that his birth certificate is fake and that he was born in Cuba.
We also learn that the Russian mafia is after Eric, and that his biological father, Alexander Sharova, is a member of the Russian Brotherhood. Eric feels sorry for Doug Benson, who was found roaming the streets covered in blood, but no memory to explain it. Worried about Eric, Calleigh asks if he's okay, due to the similarities with his memory problems.
After being comforted by Calleigh, Eric tells her how important their friendship is to him, and that he knows she read his file 7. Calleigh later tells Eric that she's confused, and that she doesn't know if he even believes what he said in his file. When Calleigh walks away, Eric tells himself that he does believe it.
He also seems upset when Frank interrupts their conversation on the street. Robert Banyon, a racehorse owner, is killed in his suite at the track.
While working the scene, Eric asks Calleigh why she didn't join him and the others the night before.
Calleigh Duquesne - Wikipedia
She gives her reasons and apologizes, but he waves away the apology, briefly saying that she missed a good time. Calleigh notices the food on the table and comments that the only item not supplied by the track is a box of truffles, and that she knows this because they're her favorites. At the end, Eric goes through the lab looking for Calleigh. When he realizes that she's gone for the day, he pulls a box of the coveted truffles from his bag and leaves them in Firearms with her name on them.
Ryan and Caleigh arrive at a callout and joke about Calleigh's driving. When Ryan asks about what's going on between her and Eric, Calleigh dodges the question. After the fire, Eric catches Calleigh and holds her when she starts having trouble breathing.
He goes with her to the hospital and holds a bedside vigil, talking to a presumably unaware and unconscious Calleigh. He explains what the doctors are doing for her and finally confesses that he can't imagine life without her.
When the investigation pulls him from her side, he puts his watch on her, which is the first thing she looks at upon waking up. When Eric returns and finds her awake, he begins to explain leaving his watch until she tells him that she heard everything he said, but wasn't sure if it was real. He assures her it was real and stays with her. Eric is placed in custody as a suspected "illegal immigrant".
The first person to visit him is Calleigh, who first questions why he didn't tell her about his fake birth certificate, then assures him that "they" will get through it. Horatio and Calleigh discover that Sharova is actually from New Mexico, which proves Eric is an American regardless of the fact that he was born in Cuba. Calleigh waits for Eric and jokingly? They walk off with their arms around each other. While investigating the death of a flight attendant, Eric daydreams about jetting off on a romantic trip with Calleigh.
Back at the lab, while is Eric is processing luggage, Calleigh brings him coffee with a smile. Eric and Calleigh work together on getting prints from a weapon in their case, using some rarely used methods.
When Calleigh returns to the crime scene for more leads, she is attacked by the same perp. Eric joins her soon after this, arriving in time to hear the perp leaving, and hovers until she assures him that she's fine. While going over some photos with Ryan, Eric sees quite a few of Calleigh and gets jealous over one of her with Terrence the horse trainer. Ryan comments on the possibility of competition for Calleigh, but Eric evades.
When Eric shows the pictures to Calleigh, he gets jealous about her concern for Terrence until she tells him that the picture was taken before they got together.
The first scene shows Calleigh turning on the shower in her bathroom, then shifts to Eric waking up in her bed and getting into the shower. Then, as Eric steps out of the shower, Calleigh walks in putting on her earrings and they share a smile. While processing tire tread marks linked to a murder, Eric tells Calleigh how out-of-place he feels at the lab with everyone buzzing about their victim.
Calleigh tells him it's a "girl thing", and he comments that she still manages to surprise him after all the years they've known each other. When it dawns on Eric to ask why she's not buzzing with everyone else, she claims having a new "diversion" and describes him in detail. Calleigh and Eric share a little flirty banter while neutralizing a pool laced with sodium hydroxide. Eric gets a phone call and later tells Calleigh that it was Sharova.
Calleigh pleads with Eric to be extremely careful when dealing with Sharova. Calleigh again asks Eric to be careful when dealing with Sharova. This starts the argument between them about Eric's loyalties and morals. Calleigh tells Eric that she won't watch him cross the line if he gets involved in Sharova's affairs.
She later fears that she may have shot Eric when he isn't in the car with Sharova when they find it in the Glades, and walks away crying. Calleigh, Horatio and other uniformed officers and dogs search the Glades for Eric after he crashes. Once Eric is found, they get him to the hospital, where Alexx takes over. Alexx's update for a waiting Calleigh brings little encouragement and Calleigh loses her composure, openly showing her feelings for Eric.
In the flashbacks, we see Eric and Calleigh's first conversation, when Eric is still the smooth-talking "player" hitting on the pretty blonde. This is made more comical when Calleigh doesn't fall for his line and basically tells him that he's wasting his time on her with her "no socializing with anyone work related" rule. The two most important people to Eric, Horatio and Calleigh, flank his bed when he wakes, with the others also in the room.
Calleigh's relief when Eric opens his eyes is transparent, and impossible to miss! Natalia is surprised when Calleigh comes to work when Eric is released from the hospital, having expected Calleigh to take a personal day to be home with Eric.
Calleigh calmly explains that they've been advised to not have any contact until the investigation into the shooting is done. When asked if she'd been able to tell Eric that she didn't shoot at him purposely, Calleigh distantly says that she had shot at him, as he was a suspect fleeing a crime scene.
All of this seems frigid until the look on Calleigh's face shows her torn feelings between duty, and devotion to Eric. Calleigh's main coping mechanism, the "cold shoulder" facade, is merely her way of getting through the trials and tribulations. The investigation into the shooting comes to a head with interviews for Calleigh and Eric with Stetler. Although still unable to speak to each other, the looks across the room between Calleigh and Eric speak volumes, as if trying to embrace each other with their eyes.
Besides wearing these made it easier for you to kiss me," Calleigh said.
Delko," Calleigh said with a smirk. She wouldn't mind him carrying her…. She could tell that Eric was just as excited and happy as she was that they were married! If you want kids that is…" "I want kids with YOU. I meant what I said in my file.
I want to settle down. I'd be nice if it were Calleigh…" "You are now. And for the rest of you life," " I know," He said before Calleigh silenced him with a kiss. By now they had arrived at the reception. It was an old fashion opera house with a grand staircase, old tile, and two giant rose arrangements at the entrance.
It was perfect; traditional, classy, simple, and elegant. Just like everything else.
They were going to have a traditional Cuban dinner served for Eric and their cakes was tall and white with cream cheese filling and butter cream icing layers.
On top was a miniature model of Eric and Calleigh kissing. Everybody clapped when Eric and Calleigh walked into the ballroom.Eric and Calleigh Relationship Spoiler
Then they danced to the first song. It was Destiny by Jim Brickman. Then after the song was over everybody joined in. Eric and Calleigh then separated and Calleigh danced with her father, and then with Eric's. Eric danced with his mom, and then Calleigh's. He is my little boy, please don't break his heart," Eric's mom whispered to Calleigh when they talked.
I love him too much. He is my life," she answered. She acts tough, but she has feelings. Even if she doesn't show them. I trust you with her, understand? If you hurt her you will have to deal with me," Mr.
More than my own life. I have loved her since the moment I met her, and I will never cause her any pain. If I hurt her it would hurt me more," Eric said completely serious. Everybody had enjoyed the dinner but now it was time to cut the caked and drink champagne.
Once everybody's eyes were on him he began to speak. I am their boss and close friend at the Miami-Dade Crime Lab, for those of you that don't know me. Everybody could tell that they were meant to be together since the very beginning.
Quite possible before either of them knew it themselves…" he said which made the audience giggle and Eric squeeze Calleigh's hand,"… But they figured it out, after seven long years… and I'm glad that they did.
I couldn't stand it if I had to watch them dance around eachother for much longer.
