    Summary

    "Christopher called me."

    Eddie blinked. "What?"

    "He called me, Eddie. Like 20 minutes ago," there was a hard inflection in Buck's voice, and his previously sheepish look turned almost stony. 

    "How-" Eddie glanced to the landline phone, still hooked to it's charger, then reached down to his pocket where his cell phone- 

    Wasn't there. 
    ----------
    When Christopher finds out that Eddie is dating again, he has a meltdown and calls Buck without telling Eddie. When Buck shows up, Eddie is confused, Buck is upset, and they need to have a conversation about what exactly Eddie thinks he's doing.

    or,

    Canon Divergence where Christopher is a little less clever about getting to Buck, Eddie grows some braincells, and Buck is just trying to make it out to the other side of this whole mess.

    Summary

    Eddie is in a coma, and Buck blames himself. He should've been there to protect Eddie. The least he can do now is to be there for Christopher, even if Buck doesn't know if he has it in him to be a parent without Eddie. Buck makes Eddie a deal: he'll fight for Christopher in the real world, while Eddie fights to wake up.

    Eddie's come a long way since those bleak days in El Paso, listening to his parents comments about how he's not fit to be a father. How Christopher doesn't deserve to be dragged down by the likes of Eddie and Shannon. Eddie thought after moving to LA, he and Chris had escaped that. When he wakes up and finds Buck neck-deep in a legal battle with his parents for custody of Christopher, Eddie must face his own mistakes, and find the confidence to stand up for himself against his absolute worst nightmare.

    Summary

    Post 4x06/4x07, speculation for 4x08

    “Change can be scary,” Buck says, “but we want your dad to be happy. Adults can get lonely too sometimes. He has a lot of friends at work, but he might be looking for someone who...can be a partner. Someone who worries about him and supports him when he’s feeling sad. Someone who loves him.”

    “But he already has you.”

    Summary

    Hen snorted from her own cot. “Trust me, guys. This isn’t the kind of measuring contest you want to play with Buck because you will lose.”

    But, comparing scars and exchanging crazy stories when meeting other people in your profession was basically a rite of passage so of course they didn’t take her warning seriously. It became a challenge instead and Eddie settled in for the show.
