When Rhonda was deposed, Eric continued to assist the new Sheriff, Maggie Evans, with the investigation. He didn't approve of Maggie's draconian methods of protecting Collinsport and secretly took evidence to Rhonda so she could unofficially continue her investigation.
After finishing a shift at work, Eric went to The Blue Whale and ordered a beer. He chatted to Ed Griffin, Benjamin Franklin and Jacqueline Tate. Kate Ripperton, now a vampire, joined them in the bar and, unable to control her urges attacked and killed Eric (Bloodlust).
On 14 February, 1984, Eric's body was summoned up out of his grave by Hallie Stokes so that she could communicate with Rosier. Rosier then left Eric's body but retained his voice. Eric, briefly alive once more, was then quickly destroyed by Hallie (Tainted Love).
