  • An episode whose idiotic A-plot was greatly outshined by a more exciting and smarter B-plot.

    6.1
    While filled with beautiful scenery and people as always, the episode suffered from a story driver for the A-plot that made zero sense. That a mildly attractive picture of a random high school girl in a one-piece swimsuit would generate rabid fans and dozens of stalkers following her every move and cataloging them on a website defied all logic. That these mostly teens were then somehow able to uncover sealed grand jury information about Horatio almost immediately (something the mob couldn't do in five years) was even more insulting to the audience's intelligence. Add to that yet another ridiculous piece of analyzing equipment (basically a rip-off from "Minority Report") in a machine that allows the tech to 'throw' images onto a wall-mounted screen, and you hit the 'nonsense trifecta' for the episode.

    Saving the episode from being a total waste was the handling of the 'Horatio in danger' B-plot. With Horatio both setting a clever trap and showing his trademark hope that for once his enemy might wise-up and not commit a crime, we were given a smart secondary story that saw Horatio never panic and stay true to his character.

    The show is capable of so much better than this, and hopefully this will be the season's only stinker of an episode.moreless
  • You know, I've lost count of how many people have tried to kill Horatio. Ryan as a bodyguard? Yes please!!

    8.5
    Okay, I confess that I was thinking of something personal when they said important information regarding Horatio got onto the internet. Info from a case? I'll give you guys and 8 out of 10 for originality. OMG Fuzzy-free Ryan!! Playing as Candace's bodyguard? 10 out of 10 for that! He did a fabulous job too, trying to trick the fans and not losing his cool when Candace's father attacked him or when he was Candace's "serious new boyfriend". I'm honestly surprised the fans didn't bring up something about his recent gambling issue. 'Cause that would be putting Ryan in the spotlight instead of Horatio. *eye roll* I knew the killer had to have been either that girl or the coach. I take points off for slutty high schoolers, revolving the episode around Horatio again, and points off for fathers who think they know what's best for their daughter and greedy mothers.moreless
  • This episode is an example of why I love this show. The cinematography, the music, the plot, the characters, etc. This episode was just so well written that it blew me away!moreless

    9.0
    I LOVE CSI:Miami with a passion. This show just hits you and it makes you feel so exotic while you watch it. This particular episode was great because it shows what Horatio does best - being the boss. He faced a threat and he outsmarted the villain and even caught the bad girl, not guy, in the episode as well. I was glad to see Ryan back on duty for Horatio because he's just too awesome. Duquesne, as always, is just great at her role because she is just HOT! This episode was great overall because it exemplifies why I love this show - the music fit perfectly and not only that, but it was the PERFECT music for this show. I just can't get over how great this show is and this episode was great too.







    PS: Next week's episode is going to have me on the edge of my chair. Mainly because Horatio got a little angry!moreless

    Well you can easily fall into another Monday another episode of CSI Miami but that doesn't mean good material is being presented. This episode was all flash and bang hot chicks and lots of action but lacked any real substance. There was no danger to the cyberlebrity due to the fact that the killer was not even pursuing her after the failed attempt in the beginning. On another sad note Horatio's stalker was turned to nothing in the ridiculous bit of him leaving a gun with blanks in his car and waiting for the would be killer to steal the gun and take a shot. So far we're 1 acceptable episode and 1 okay not a good start really hope things get better.moreless
  • Wow talk about an awesome eppie. I mean I thought the first eppie was great but this one as 10 thumbs up from me. This was best one yet. I was on the edge of my seat. I couldn't take my eyes away, it was that good. This season has turned into an aweson onmoreless

    Well talk about bad ass. I thought this eppie was the best on so many level. It started off with a very good plot then worked it's way to action then finished off with a very good climax. Awesome!



    Like I said before I was on the edge of my seat. I really couldn't look away. It was truly a very good eppie. 10 thumbs up. I felt that this eppie had it all and then some. This eppie was very well written. The writers knew what they were doing. I hope that keep up with the great writting and acting.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • During Amanda's flashback where we see the path of the arrow, Luke reaches for his heart before the arrow has hit him.

    • When Delko sees the picture of Wolfe and Candace, he reads the caption as, "Just spotted Candace out with a cute older guy."

      The word 'cute' is not mentioned in the caption. Instead it says 'DDG' which stands for 'Drop Dead Gorgeous'.

    • Goof: After Calleigh identifies the bow that was used to kill Luke, Natalia takes it to DNA, but handles it without gloves. She would have compromised any evidence that could have been taken from the bow.

      Calleigh also handled the bows without gloves when she test fired them.

    • When Luke is shot Candace remains on the starting block of the pool. In the recap of the incident, which is done during the interrogation with Amanda, there is no one still on the starting blocks when the shot goes off. If Candace had remained on the starting blocks the arrow would have hit her, not Luke.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Horatio: Mr.Wolfe.
      Ryan: Thanks for calling, I tried to get here as quick as I could. Is everything, uh, is this about the re-instatement?
      Horatio: It's a step in that direction.
      Ryan: OK, great, because the gun range isn't really a thing that...
      Horatio: I understand. This is private protection.
      Ryan:Private protection? Great, great, I'll take it, what's the, who's the client?
      Horatio: Young lady that just left here, Candace Walker.

    • Damon Argento: What, you just expect me to fill in all those years you took my dad away from me?
      Horatio: I know how you feel, Damon.
      Damon Argento: How can you know, unless you felt what I felt?
      Horatio: I know, because I've lost family too.
      Damon Argento: I didn't lose my dad. You took him from me!

    • Mr. Walker: I was trying to
      protect my daughter. Sometimes fear can be a good thing.
      Horatio: On the contrary, Mr. Walker. Fear is a killer.

    • Ryan: Don't you care at all about your daughter's safety?
      Mary Walker: That's your job.

    • Ryan (after he got attacked protecting Candace): Wow. So it takes two CSIs to process someone these days. You guys must be more desperate to get me back than I thought.
      Eric: Come on, Ryan. I heard about the attack and I wanted to make sure you were okay.
      Ryan: Well, that's very sweet of you. The guy did get the jump on me but, he didn't get away Scot free.
      Calleigh: Whatcha got?
      Ryan (extends his hands): I've got DNA from our attacker.
      Calleigh: That's a nice get, Ryan. You know, if the DNA of the attacker matches the DNA of Luke Selyan's killer, you just broke the case!
      Ryan (smiles at Eric): I just broke the case!
      Eric (laughs): That's not bad, Wolverine. You couldn't a grabbed a handful of
      hair just in case?
      Ryan: That would be funny if a girl wasn't assaulted.
      Eric: Yeah, you're right. I'm sorry. I'll see you later. (leaves)
      Ryan: Later. You know, I was starting to miss this place.
      Calleigh (about Eric): Don't let him fool you. We're all very excited to get you back here.

    • Rick Stetler: Now Argento knows you're the one who put him away. He still has associates on the outside, Horatio. Somebody might wanna take a shot at you.
      Horatio: Yes, that's the risk we take everyday, Rick.
      Rick Stetler: Now, this is beyond hero worship, okay? With this information out there, you're in danger and I would like to convince you to take a security detail of your own.
      Horatio: Do I detect a note personal concern, Rick?
      Rick Stetler: The Department is feeling very exposed.
      Horatio: Oh. So we're back to reality.
      Rick Stetler: This is serious.
      Horatio: It always is.

    • Mr. Walker: We have been followed all weekend– these cyber-stalkers, these so-called fans! And because of them, Luc is dead. What if my daughter is next?
      Horatio: (puts his sunglasses on) Mr. Walker, that is not gonna happen.
