As the season 10 opens, Natalia Boa Vista (Eva La Rue) is drowning in the back of a trunk. Alana De La Garza, whose character seemed to meet a certain death in Season 4, returns. A powerful crime boss (24’s Carlos Bernard) is about to begin his cat-and-mouse game with Horatio Caine (David Caruso). Then there’s the biggest mystery of all: The ambiguous relationship between Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez) and Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter). We crack the case.
In the premiere, Delko and Calleigh get snippy with each other. What just happened?
Procter: That was a lovers’ spat.
Are they together then?
Procter: I think they’re together. At the end of the episode, Calleigh is addressing her thoughts on family and where this is going.
How’d you like to see it play out?
Rodriguez: At this point, if we’re going to go down that road, let’s go down it. Let’s see the good and the bad of having the kind of job where your life can be in danger, and (have) the pressure of trying to protect somebody you care about. Or having to work with somebody you may be having problems at home, and you have to put that aside to do a job. Let’s really explore it!
So we’re moving ahead at full speed?
Procter: They did want me to kiss him on the cheek, and I said.”I think that’s a little too fast!” It’s fine that it’s slow, because we’re fighting crime. This is a mystery show.
