I wouldn't worry about that scene in 8.12 with Calleigh & Jesse. I read the spoiler, and I'm not the least bit concerned. What I don't understand is Eric's absence from the episode. He's supposed to be in 8.11, and not 8.12? How are the writers scattering the remaining 7 episodes that he agreed to do is what I'd like to know! Also, apparently there was absolutely no mention of Eric in the last episode. Isn't a bit strange, even by CSIM standards, that a CSI doesn't show up for work, and NOBODY asks about his absence ? Not having E/C scenes in the episodes REALLY sucks :scream:! I'm having the same "hiphugger" withdrawal symptoms that I had over the summer . I know, I know, WE WILL HAVE OUR HAPPY ENDING! But the wait feels sooooo long!
