Well, in all fairness, it is possible to be in love with or like someone even if you're dating someone else. It's just not usually a good idea. :lol: Even though I'm an E/C shipper, I don't think Eric was in love with Calleigh, or vice versa during Season 4. And I never got the impression that Calleigh and Peter Elliot actually dated...ever. To me, it looked like they shared a mutual attraction, and from Calleigh's perspective it seemed like they were going to go on a "first date" of sorts the day she found out about his fiance. And then it was "whoops, guess that's not gonna happen after all!" I saw reconciliation between Eric and Natalia, but I didn't really see it as romantic. I got the impression that they'd forgiven and forgotten, and were moving towards friendship. I also didn't think that Calleigh was necessarily "in love" with Jake. Dating ≠ in love. But I suppose that's all a matter of personal opinion. Eh, I disagree. You, of course are free to have your own opinion, and I'm not about to tell you that you're wrong, because you're not. To be fair, though, we don't know for sure if Calleigh and horse-dude had a romantic date or not. They spent time riding horses together. We don't know what happened after that, if anything, and we don't know if Calleigh even saw him like that. Personally, I thought that she was more in love with the horses than the horse-dude himself. :lol: And in Calleigh's defense, she can't be expected to put her life on hold because she knows that Eric "likes her likes her". He's never actually asked her to go on a date or anything like that. I didn't see Calleigh as insecure- I think she was more concerned than anything. Eric's biological father obviously had, and still has, pretty strong ties to the Russian mafia. I'd be surprised if she didn't show some concern for his safety even if they were just friends at that point. Again, I'll play devil's advocate, but maybe that's part of the reason why Calleigh doesn't want Eric to be involved with his father: she's been in that position of going out on a limb for family, and it could have cost her a lot. She doesn't want Eric making the same kind of mistake. Well, having your biological father in your life isn't necessarily a good thing. Calleigh was "lucky" enough to have an alcoholic father. Eric at least had two parents who obviously loved him very much, even if his "father" wasn't biologically related to him. I agree that Calleigh should support what Eric wants to do, but to a point. I think she can still disagree with what he wants to do, and at the same time say "But this is your choice, and I'm not going to try to make you change your mind" UNLESS Eric is putting himself or others in harm's way. I see what you're saying, but Calleigh didn't have much of a choice. I doubt she would've asked him for his phone if he hadn't already lied to her about who was on the phone in the previous episode. There's obviously a trust issue now, but in my opinion, it didn't start with Calleigh. And again, in my opinion, she wasn't asking because she's controlling, but because she was concerned for his safety. I don't think Eric "deserved" what he got, and certainly not because he lied to Calleigh. I think the reason that he's obviously in a bind is because of his own actions. And it's important to remember that a relationship is about two people, not just one. Eric doesn't have to get "approval" from Calleigh, but he should communicate with her. Another matter of opinion, but I considered that whole scene to be a giant brainfart on the part of TPTB. You don't tell someone that you trust them with every fiber of your being when you don't even know what their sister looks like. Also, it may not have been right for Calleigh to jump to conclusions, but Eric's reputation as a womanizer/being late for girl issues/etc. was his own doing. Well, Calleigh also asks him if he needs anything at the end of the episode, and then says that she has his back.
