Actually, the next episode is a repeat:"Bad Seed". The new one, 8.14, I believe called "In the Wind", only airs on Feb 1st. Although I know Eric will be in that episode, I doubt that we'll get any kind resolution of the limbo that our hiphuggers seem to be in ! IMO, the writers are going to drag this "thing" out until the very end, to keep us, hiphugger fans, in suspense , thus preventing a mass defection from the show. Hopefully, after this year's rough rollercoaster ride, we'll get our happy ending, and even some happy news about AR's contract renewal for next year !
