Spoiler: thoughts I agree nicksarafan2. I think that Horatio is more likely to cover for them than to make them transfer. I think Horatio has had his share of shady, not very by-the-book moments and both Calleigh and especially Eric have helped him and even covered for him. So I think that you can add that to the fact that he wouldn't want to loose either of them from the team. As for Eric's surgery I think that if they wanted to be 100% realistic with this storyline then they wouldn't even have done it. These are the moments were I just think it's a TV show and even though they've stretched reality A LOT I don't hold it against them. That's just my opinion though cause everyone is entitled to expect whatever they want from the show. I for one wouldn't want a lot of episodes without Eric so I wouldn't mind them saying it's a month later and Eric is around. And I know it takes much more to recover from brain surgery cause my grandma had a tumor removed from her head. I think it would've been much better if they had just stayed away from brain surgery (even going back to Man Down) because there was just no way to do that story realistically if they wanted everything to just go back to normal on the next episode. But since it's too late for that I prefer for them to just get past it and have Eric around again as soon as possible.
