  • a terrorist suspect is on the run when her own people turn on her

    8.9
    i liked this ep for what i saw of it..i did see a little more than half so i did miss the first half but since they do the little scenes describing the murders it kind of shows me what i missed although it may not all be the same..anyways..i dont see how two trained killers could really miss their target but then again maybe their heart really wasnt in it like it should have been..well the guys got caught..the worst part of the ep is when horatio goes to confront sonya and she is so sly and just walks away..so cocky..i did not like thatmoreless
  • Sonya Barak, in danger. Horatio tries to save her..Ryan......

    9.4
    Sonya Barak is free, after her lawyer helps her. But outside the court, her lawyer is killed, and Horatio witnesses the crime. Further investigation suggests the killer aim to kill Sonya Barak, not her lawyer. And Horatio set to find Sonya, both to save her and bring her to justice. Ryan makes a very huge mistake, which he comprimised a evidence. Poor Ryan...



    This is a better episode compared to the previous episodes "Comes as You Are", "Going Going Gone" and "High Octane". Interesting episode with good directing. Love it. One of my favourite episode in CSI: Miami. The writer had certainly done a very good job to this episode.moreless

    I really enjoyed watching this episode and have seen it twice now. I am a huge Ryan fan so to see him in the spotlight is always nice but I didn't like the circumstances of the occasion in this episode. I hated that he was showing off to the camera instead of doing his job like he would have done on any other normal day. He paid for it in the end though when he destroyed evidence. I feel that as I go from season 3 to season 5 that Ryan has changed. It may not be as noticeable if you watch continuously but todays episode stood out.moreless
  • This is a good episode, it's been a week and I still remember all of it!! SPOILERS

    9.3
    This episode is about the terrorist Sonya whom we met 2 episodes ago. As she leaves the court someone attempts to assassinate her.



    The story is actually a good one, I always said that I found it annoying that they concentrate on big sub plots rather than actual crimes but this episode managed to blend it perfectly. The plot about Sonya tied in neatly with the death they were led into.



    The plot also shows Wolfe's incompetence which is always good to see. A little humiliation for him is a good thing.



    The plot works out well and it shows Horatio's strength of character as he works to save a terrorist. It's a nice story and shows that this could be a recurring story in the episodes to come this season. Sonya is a good character and this could be an interesting plot for the rest of the season.moreless
  • Sonya Barak (a terrorist)is hunted... not bye the CSI team, but by her fellow terrorist-colleagues. Horatio decides to help her, before it's too late. Huh?! Help the terroist?!

    9.0
    I have to repeat myself: help the terrorist? Okay, the woman is hot and stuff, but come on, she's a terrorist. Let's presume that Horatio wants her locked up; that will satisfy me. Anyhow, I though this was a great episode; very exciting! Especially at the end: did you see that one coming? I'm glad she didn't die actually, she needs to rot away in prison, where she can't wear make-up and fancy clothes. Mean me!Seriously, you would almost think it's real; the whole terrorist plot IS very realistic. It's not as if it can never happen! We should know things like that happen, but we shouldn't be scared of it too much, we still need to live; and I think that in CSI miami, they handle it pretty well. One more thing: love the title:terrorists that betray an accomplice:shocker!moreless
