  • The main storyline about the death of the wife of one of three brothers with axes to grind is good enough, but the secondary storyline is even better

    8.8
    Khandi Alexander shines in this episode, doing her \'this is what comes of drink driving\' class for young drinkers. She has such presence and her character is totally believable (Caruso take notes!)



    The main storyline is the usual twist and turn, did he/didn\'t he look at the death of a woman whose husband survived the carjack intact, whereas she ended up on rocks with a bullet in her head. It\'s not a particularly strong story, but has enough plot to keep you watching.



    Alexx hires a young drink driver from her class to help in the morgue processing bodies. When a flask of alcohol goes missing from one of the corpses, she makes an obvious deduction. Again, though, things are not as they seem, and the very final act, as Alexx reveals to another class a very dead reason not to drink and drive, the power of KA\'s acting really comes across, as does the power of the writers.moreless

    • Foster: Man, that's the problem with you CSIs. Don't trust anybody.
      Calleigh: I trust. Then I verify.

    • (Alexx talking to an AA group visiting the morgue, showing them a car crash victim)
      Alexx: He chose to drink and drive, so you remember Glen Monroe (the victim) and deal with your problem before you make it mine.

    • Suspect: She was selling my brother's future children, Coleman children.
      Horatio: So she deserved to die for that?
      Suspect: Yes!
      Horatio: Well Sal now you're going to get what you deserve.

    • (Horatio and Ryan go through some evidence)
      Horatio: What about Sal's tie?
      Ryan: Nope, nothing.
      Horatio: What about inside Sal's tie?
      (Horatio grabs a scalpel and cuts the tie open, there's blood inside)
      Ryan: Horatio I eeemm... didn't know... I don't know what to say.
      Horatio: Not to worry, that's Sal's job now.

    • (Horatio confronts a suspect)
      Suspect: I didn't kill my brother's wife.
      Horatio: Then why do you look so guilty?

    • Calleigh: Guy forces a couple on a ride, crashes the car, kills the woman, leaves the money. That doesn't sound like any car-jacking I've ever heard of.
      Horatio: Join the club.

    • Horatio: You know, even the best of families have bad apples.
      Morgan Coleman: And the rest of us pay…

    • Alexx: Drunk drivers bend. They don't break…
