Delko is comatose in hospital, badly shot in the Everglades. Horatio remembered how they met in 1997, working with his trusted assistant Jesse Cardoza's last day in his police unit on the murder of Steve Bowers's wife. Eric was a tow-truck driver, but showed keen interest and a sharp mind. So did newbie Calleigh. Still uniformed Tripp also earned trust. Written by
