Episode Summary

EDIT
An inmate at a massive Miami prison complex is stabbed to death in the prison yard. Shortly after Horatio arrives on the scene, a helicopter appears above the correctional facility. He immediately fears that the murder was a decoy to set up an escape. That's confirmed as three prisoners hop aboard the chopper and flee. As the investigation gets underway, the identities of the fugitives become known and a horrible realization sweeps over Horatio: two of the escapees are cold-blooded killers who already have their next victims picked out, one of whom is a child molester who he recently put away.moreless

    An inmate is murdered as part of a decoy to escape prison. Three inmates escape on a helicopter - one of which is shot, aswell as the pilot. One of the alive escapees is a paedophile, whilst the other is a murderer. I had high expectations for the very first season finale of CSI: Miami, and it exceeded those expectations. My other favourite episode of season 1 was "Broken" and I enjoyed how this episode features the same criminal from that episode. It was a very intense episode and a very good way to end a great season.



    If you haven't seen this episode yet, watch it. You will be pleasantly surprised.moreless

  • Very exciting! Season 1 Finale! Definitely worth saving the best for last in a season! Brilliantly written! I would recommend watching the Season 1 episode "Broken" before this episode! It'll catch'ya up!moreless

    Definitely the reason I watch CSI: Miami every week! Very intense up til' the end! The writers knew what they were doing and the camera work was great! It followed reality well. Especially in the beginning, when the toothbrush is carved into a weapon! It was great up until the very end! Some awesome lines were thrown in and many times when you just wanted Calleigh to be careful! Body Count makes MUCH since as a title, because the bodies just keep piling up! And definitely a great use of those traffic cameras that rushed drivers despise so much! Great!moreless

    This was one nail biting edge of your seat show and that

    One of the best season finales not just on this show but also for all time.

    As one prisoner is stabbed and could be a decoy for a

    Prison escape. Horatio as always is cool, calm, and collective in the face of danger IMO!

    • Calleigh: Are we still on for Thursday night?
      Janet:Yeah, as long as the workaholic doesn't cancel on me again.
      Calleigh: I'm not a workaholic.
      Janet: Are you kidding me? I send your Christmas card to CSI.

    • (Calleigh catches Hank Kerner at gunpoint)
      Calleigh: Drop the gun. Get down on the floor. (Hank tries to move) Uh-uh. There are two ways this goes down. Either way, you're dropping the gun.
      Kerner: If I give up now, I go to the chair.
      Calleigh: Ten years of appeals, or you can go right now.

    • Hagen: Where have you been?
      Calliegh: I took a drive, got some fresh air, apprehended an escaped felon.

    • Horatio: Do you think they were killed in the crash?
      Alexx: Not unless they each crashed into a bullet.

    • (Calleigh is holding a gun to Hank Kerner's head, just like he's done to all his victims)
      Calleigh: How does it feel?

    • Hagen: Will you stay with Speedle tonight? Or Delko?
      Calleigh: Actually, I'm gonna stay here.
      Hagen: Then I'm gonna stay with you.
      Calleigh: OK. So long as we're clear you're doing it for you and not for me.
      Hagen: Crystal clear.

    • Stewart Otis: I will get out. It's my nature.
      Horatio: And I'll be waiting. That's my nature.

    • Speed: One man's family album is another man's porn.

    • Hank Kerner: This ain't over, bitch. I'll be seeing you.
      Calleigh: Well you know what the thing is, Hank, it doesn't really matter if you do, because even if you get rid of me someone will step in my place, and if you silence me, the evidence has it's own voice and it keeps saying over and over, "you." You and your bullets. You know what, and by the way, where you're going, I think you're going to be the bitch.

    • Hagen: You know Hank Kerner, our fugitive.
      Calleigh: Yeah. We've been through two hung juries together, it's not like we're picking out china.
