If Eddie wins, which he probably won't, he'll probably be in the three worst winners of all time.
He actually made a strong strategic move telling Cochran that he would be next after himself. In essence ... he bought himself an additional week, a few more $$$, and a chance at the Final immunity Challenge. If he had won the FIC ... Cochran (probably) would have been gone ... unless of course Cochran could have convinced him that Dawn was a bigger threat. Eddie getting himself to that position was more than Malcolm was able to do making him a pretty good player.
So ... I don't think Eddie is as stupid as he acts or others think ... I think it was his strategy. The guy who joined in and explained how the fluids would help Erik was a different guy than we've seen all season. So it was sort of the still waters strategy. :)
I'm not an EMT but even I knew what was in that IV and could have told Erik the same.
Eddie didn't sound like a talking rock for one scene. Kudos to him.
However, I'm sure he's a fine fireman, so thank you Eddie for that. People who are willing to put their lives on the line for strangers have a special place in the world.
I was stunned in that scene--it was like a whole other person took over Eddie's body. I actually looked to see if it was someone else talking! Coherent sentences, big words, technical terms used correctly....who are you and what have you done with Eddie?
I started to wonder if the doofus was just a role he'd assumed for the show! And maybe it was. If he ever gets to a F3 maybe we'll find out...
Just by the way ... I don't think a bar and bark is such a bad idea. A bar owner in my old neighborhood, bought the store next door and turned it into a laundromat. It began really thriving almost immediately. People came in and watched sports, mingled, had a few all why they were doing their laundry.
The owner, I think also had some food for sale and always had change available :). It also brought in some new customers and women felt safe because they weren't completely alone!
So ... in a neighborhood where people have dogs and in a locale where animals are allowed on the premises .... or maybe next door where the owners can see them while they have a drink ... I do not think it's such a bad idea.
When he started talking about the bar/dog idea, I just :rofl
Actually, it endeared him to me a little bit more. What a goofball.
Yeah...at least he had a thought in his head. Not sure how it works with being a firefighter, but the ones on Chicago Fire seem to be opening a bar together, so who knows!
What he can't have is dogs mixing with where the food is served...but it should still be workable.
