Re: Horatio/Natalia #1 - All Aboard The USS Orange Crush. To Welcome to the ship, Patricia! The Horatio/Natalia friendship is the one thing that draws me to this ship so much. You're right, ilh214, Horatio doesn't seem to talk much, but Natalia always gets him to do that, and think about life and stuff. I think it's pretty amazing that she can. I really hope we get to see them getting closer next season. These are two characters who desperately need a shoulder to lean on. Horatio already proved he could be Natalia's, I know she could be his, too. It would be really nice to see her become his Catherine.
