Personality

Feisty, independent and difficult to offend, Eddie is passionate about what she believes and far more hot-tempered than Jamie. On the job, she usually sees things in an ‘Us vs. Them’ way, but is open to hearing Jamie’s more neutral assessment, even if she disagrees with it. Her massive appetite is the source of much ribbing from Jamie, especially due to her love of fried food and all-you-can-eat nights.

Relationships

Eddie and Jamie have always shown signs of attraction to one another. Initially they did not pursue a relationship outside of work, even after a night of drinking resulted in a kiss between them both. Regardless of their effort to keep a strict working relationship, many of their fellow officers and Jamie's family thought they were sleeping together. Eddie and Jamie were questioned on the nature of their relationship several times.

From season four to season eight, Eddie dated frequently. Early in her partnership with Jamie, Eddie ended up on a date with a man who sexually assaulted her. Unwilling to be seen as a victim in her own precinct, she refused to report it. Later she decided to report the incident after Jamie encouraged her to do so. After reporting the incident, she expressed gratitude towards Jamie for encouraging her to do so.

In season seven eight, Eddie visits Jamie's apartment and confesses she is jealous and has feelings for him. He admits he has feelings for her too. Although they agreed feelings may damage a partnership between two officers, and neither of them wanted their working relationship to be damaged.

After a near-fatal shoot out, Eddie and Jamie decide to become engaged after Jamie is nearly assassinated. After becoming engaged, they had to convince everyone they could work together, which doesn't turn out well for them as hoped. However, a loophole in the NYPD Patrol Guide allows them to remain at the same precinct, just not as partners.
