Episode Summary

EDIT
The investigation into a drug heist offers brief glimpses into the private lives of the CSIs, whose nerves are on edge when they become suspects in the crime they're trying to solve. A police convoy headed across town includes an unmarked truck filled with confiscated drugs being taken to an incinerator to be destroyed. The trip ends abruptly when thieves hijack the vehicle, kill its driver and shoot Speedle, who was riding shotgun. It's hard for Horatio when the media draw comparisons to a similar case several years ago in which his brother, an undercover cop, was killed. But it's worse for his team when Internal Affairs decides that one of them tipped off the robbers about the delivery.moreless

  • After watching this episode and an episode from another season (the one where Speedle gets shot and killed), makes you think the producers maybe had it in for Rory Cochrane? Why couldn't you have just cleaned your gun, Speed?!moreless

    Very well written! One of my Top 5 Favorite Episodes as of Jan. 31, 2007! The beginning is very intense and leaves Speed down for the count! Thank GOD for Kevlar! The writers definitely took an idea and ran with it! The producers really seemed to have it in for Speed after considering him being shot twice in like a season and a half! The beginning is one of the best shootout scenes in CSI (Miami, NY, and LV) history in my opinion! Definitely a great episode for a cold night! The writers wrap up the story very nicely in the end! Great Job!moreless

    Dispo day is one of my favourite episodes of CSI miami, this was also the first time viewers saw Haratio using his weapon. right from the start as i watched the truck a the CSI hummer drive through the street i knew there was going to be some sort of shootout. I really liked the way this was written because the shootout seemed so quick and i couldn't really know what was going on because the camera kept going from one guy to another. Speedle's weapon jammed and that also gave the episode a sub storyline about how speed didn't clean his gun, which we all know lead to his death in episode - lost son. The plot unravlled really well and the slight connection to Haratio's past and how the driver of the station wagon was involved, also the reporter. This was definetly the best episode of season 1. Great episode - 10/10.moreless
  • Action-Packed and exciting; yet also a foreshadow.

    DISPO DAY was a great episode! It immediately thrusts into the action and the case launches from there. It's interesting, too, to see how Speed failed to clean his gun and how it will cause him to be killed later on in the third season of the show.



    The episode was great overall, with a wonderful acting and, specifically, plot. The only reason why I didn't give it a 10 was because it was a little slow at times, leaving the viewer a little impatient at times.



    The episode had a great conclusion with Horatio giving Speed a kit to clean his gun, which he obviously doesn't use. Poor Speed.moreless
