All I wanted in this episode was to see Eddie standing in support of Buck against his parents and he DID. No, he wasn't there for the dinners or anything like that, but he told Buck point blank that he had nothing to apologise for.
OK seriously think about that for a moment. When is the last time ANYONE has told Evan Buckley that he has nothing to apologise for? Eddie did something for Buck that not many people do for him: he validated his feelings. He told him it was okay to be pissed, he told him he had a right to be angry and hurt, even though his delivery wasn't the greatest. And not only is this significant development on Eddie's part (actually engaging in emotionally demanding conversation? the same man who literally ran off to war instead of dealing with whatever was going on at home?? okay), this episode also posited Eddie as exactly the kind of person Buck needs. like, obviously I'm a shipper so I'm gonna look at things with shipper glasses, but even taking those off for a minute: Eddie stood in Buck's corner when no one else who mattered (even Maddie, though I'm not mad at her) did. That's a good friend. That's a good partner. like??? ugh we were fed so good in this episode y'all, eat up
