Did You Know?


In the Russian language, last names have a feminine and masculine intonation. Calling Eric's father Alexander "Sharova" would have been a very serious offense because that is in fact the feminine version of the name. His real last name would have been "Sharov". "Sharova" would have only been used in case there was a wife, mother, or sister present. Also if Eric was to have taken his father's full name, he would have been either "Eric Alexandervich Sharov" or "Eric Alexandervich Delkotrovsky"; depending on which the writers were using. The father's first name is always used as a surname in both male and female cases. See more »

Waiting On 'Eric' This Time
17 August 2011 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

The final season episode - the only one that always leaves the viewer hanging was a decent one; not spectacular, but interesting all the way. It leaves us with Eric, this time, in big trouble and the rest of the team out in the swamps looking for him. Minutes earlier, he had been shot at by Calleigh! Go figure that one out!

Whatever, we get some closure from the season-long battle with "Ivan Sarnoff" and the Russian Mob. Everyone is involved in this, including "Yelinda" doing undercover work, and the mysterious father of "Deko."

Along the way, we get a scene very reminiscent of the movie "The Fugitive."

There was no medical examiner in this episode, so I guess the new one to replace "Dr. Price" will begin next season.
