  • Eddie Gordon
rdfs:comment
  • Eddie Gordon was a former street hood, the absolute antithesis of Odette Morton, and thus the ideal casting choice for the producers of "A Night of Dance", which preceded A Dance With Death. He was to "bring the drama", and he did, on and off-set, which is why, when Odette turns up dead, Eddie's is the first name on many lips. The show's policy of bringing back the last contestant eliminated if one of the current crop is unable to continue, means that Odette getting bumped off bumps Eddie to the head of the line.
  • Eddie Gordon was a drinking buddy of Sam's. He shows up unexpectedly at Cheers in the episode "Bar Bet". They haven't seen each other in awhile - presumably due to Sam having quit drinking. Sam doesn't remember Eddie at first, but recalls Eddie when Eddie mentions a bar bet where Sam promised to have married Jacqueline Bisset by a certain date, or he would give the bar to Eddie. Sam laughs off the bet at first, thinking Eddie is kidding with him. But when Eddie produces a piece of paper where Sam wrote out the promise, and indicates he expects to collect the bar, Sam displays his disgust. Eddie says he's obtained a lawyer and is prepared to go to court if necessary, then leaves.

  • Eddie Gordon was a former street hood, the absolute antithesis of Odette Morton, and thus the ideal casting choice for the producers of "A Night of Dance", which preceded A Dance With Death. He was to "bring the drama", and he did, on and off-set, which is why, when Odette turns up dead, Eddie's is the first name on many lips. The show's policy of bringing back the last contestant eliminated if one of the current crop is unable to continue, means that Odette getting bumped off bumps Eddie to the head of the line. Combined with his history of violence, and recorded threats against "Miss Sweet and Innocent", Eddie is the early front runner in Beckett and Castle's eyes, but this is a race full of dark horses, and a truly vital ringer. He did have an alibi, but was able to give useful information to the police, as he had seen Odette (Barbra) talk to a man in an alley and give him some money.
  • Eddie Gordon was a drinking buddy of Sam's. He shows up unexpectedly at Cheers in the episode "Bar Bet". They haven't seen each other in awhile - presumably due to Sam having quit drinking. Sam doesn't remember Eddie at first, but recalls Eddie when Eddie mentions a bar bet where Sam promised to have married Jacqueline Bisset by a certain date, or he would give the bar to Eddie. Sam laughs off the bet at first, thinking Eddie is kidding with him. But when Eddie produces a piece of paper where Sam wrote out the promise, and indicates he expects to collect the bar, Sam displays his disgust. Eddie says he's obtained a lawyer and is prepared to go to court if necessary, then leaves. When Eddie returns to Cheers the next evening - the deadline in the bet - he finds Sam has found a Jacqueline Bisset and plans to marry her in the bar. When Eddie sees this, he offers to negotiate a settlement. Sam declines at first, but when Eddie negotiates down to an olive with a pimento in it, Sam accepts. Eddie takes the olive and leaves in a huff, telling Sam to "think about this the next time you shoot your mouth off in some bar".
