In 22 Jump Street, Eric is now in jail with Mr. Walters , who is in a forced 'relationship' with Eric and considers him to be his "bitch".
Eric is a modern day hippie so to speak, he is very calm for the most part , but later on freaks out after his life may be turned around for the worse. He doesn't seem to care about his relationship with Molly, especially when he suspects Doug is texting her. Later on in prison, he reveals to be a forced homosexual and also seems agitated with Mr. Walters, as Eric doesn't like it when Mr. Walters considers himself to be his "Bitch". Eric possibly got Mr. Walters pregnant due to Mr. Walters having a vagina and Eric having sex with him. At the last scene of 22 Jump Street, We see Eric about to cry. Maybe because he is excited for his new daughter or son because he is having a daughter with a man or because he's gonna be a dad soon.
