    seriosly guys, I know I´m going to have a lot of finger downs for this review, but I have to be honest with you, I think this episode is not as great as this grades suggest, I know, it was entertaining, the beginning scene was as captivating as csi las vegas opening scenes are, Eva la rue also did a great job acting like a kidnaped woman, but after the accident, the episode just became as annoying as hell xD, I can´t beleieve how Natalia was abble to do her job after reciving enjuries like that, it was unreallistic, what I hated most in the episode, was who was the real killer, it was stupid, I have to admit I liked the idea of the reward, but there were too much bad things here to consir this episode as a great one, maybe a good one, but not a great

    P.D: I´m from venezuela, I´m not an expert writing in english, please forgive my mistakes
  • The manhunt of the escapees continues.

    I really enjoyed this episode. It had everything an exceptional episode needs; personal involvement in the case, some suspense, a *brilliant* choice of actor in the way of the bad guy, continuation of the season's story and of course the all important character development.

    Natalia's kidnapping was very believable (well except for her pitiful excuse for a scream and resistance when she was initially caught). However when she was in the back of the vehicle the interaction between suspect and CSI was excellent. When Horatio pulled her from the wreck we saw the caring side of H which is always pleasant to see, however I would have liked to see some more worry from her workmates, but that's just me.

    As soon as I saw Mark Pellegrino playing the 'witness' I was quite sure he had a bigger part to play/was the murderer. You can't have someone who played such an awesome Lucifer (Supernatural) just be a passer-by who happened to see the main suspect. He is so damn good at being bad!! Some very good casting there.

    I loved how throughout the whole episode it seemed to be Natalia going against what the rest of the team thought, and even sometimes against the story the evidence told. There was the thought of Stockholm bought up by Delko, which I think she did have and though it proved he was telling the truth it still led her to a biased view.

    The manhunt continues, and though I like this, if it comes between Ryan Wolfe and happiness with his girl I will not be happy! ;)
    I really want him to get someone, even just for a short while and if it's someone forward like Molly that he needs then so be it! I'm a bit tired waiting for Ryan/Natalia now :P (Aww bless him for calling her 4 times :))

    Good acting all round, by Natalia and Ryan especially though(Oh, and the murderer). A good solid episode, CSI: Miami is probably the CSI series doing the best this season in my eyes.
  • Kidnapped Natalia.

    It is appalling that there are people who would play judge in people's lives and actions. In this episode, the killer murders women who sells themselves for money. I am against prostitution but I am more against murdering these women or anyone for that matter. It is also scary that these murdering people look so ordinary, no one knows how they look. There is really no way of pinpointing who they may be. I guess like what the show is telling us, we really need to be careful with our dealings, especially over the internet. Not every person is bad but there are those who want to hurt people. Be safe, you all.
  • Always exciting to see a member of the team in danger

    The kidnapping was great! Natalia didn't walk away uninjured, which is "nice"; not that I want her to hurt, but it adds to the suspense and makes it more realistic after a car crash. Also they wrietsr did a good job with not having the kidnapping be over to quickly; Natalia wasn't gone one second and found just one minute before, but she was actually gone for some time. For a moment I actually believed that maybe it was the nurse that was the real killer and the guy (can't remember his name, but I was wrong again.

    And is it just me or did Horatio seem somewhat tired in the beginning of the episode? Tired of murders and so, he just seemes like he didn't want to be on the scene anymore and wanted to get away. Maybe it was just because Patrick was one of the convicts that escaped in the prison break.

    To finish of; the Miami writers did a good job and they seem to have a great season with a lot of great episodes coming up!
