  • Over the top

    9.0
    While I really liked this episode, I thought it was a bit over-the-top. I mean, come on, in one episode we have a case of double jeopardy, copycat murder, hate crime, not one but three murderers, and tons of bizarre evidence. Each of these makes sense on its own, but a combination of all of these in one crime?

    And frankly, some of these didn't really make sense together. If this was a hate crime (the husband hated the discovery that his wife was half-black), why did the husband "practice" by killing a random white woman? Wouldn't a real black-hater kill blacks, not whites? How come was he so comfortable killing a random white person, but couldn't go through with killing the black wife he hated?

    Moreover, there were too much "convenient" evidence, which altogether seem very unlikely. The first victim was conveniently tied with an airplane-specific chain that leave distinctive marks. How convenient... And the third victim was redressed with pantihose which only people from Connecticut would use (?!) and conveniently had the murderer's nail fall on it...If she was redressed with ordinary pants, they wouldn't have even suspected the mistress?

    So altogether, not a very realistic episode, but a very enjoyable one.moreless

    Melissa's body has never been found. The husband was having an affair. The defendant (husband) was found not guilty. A fisherman fuond Mellissa's body. Her fingers were cut off. Possitive match. The weight bells were found were mellissa's body was. The husband was a white supremacist. The wife was half black. They're was antoher vic. Debera was killed by Mr. Massey. Teresa may have been his practice. There was some blood at the girlfriends house. Steven's calling card was in the apt. of the dead girl. Found Teresa's body in a land fill that was atop a drained river. The helper was Allison.moreless
  • Very Interesting

    9.9
    I like the part where Eric kid of tells that nosy reporter that he is not going to talk to her about the case and then walks away. He is hot... So is lieutenant Caine (for an older guy) and so is Ryan.Ryan.Ryan.The only upsetting part was where they find the guy who murdered his wife but cant do anything because of the Double Jeopardy law. But thats the way it is in reality as well. You cant get charged for the same crime twice. so if you committed a crime and was either charged or not guilty you can not be tried for the same crime.moreless
  • Awesome eppy.

    The episode was amazing. When I first saw it on television, two words; KA-BAAM! Megan could have been good in this episode, I guess though. I'd give it an overall 10.0 (like all my reviews), there were just repeating old eppys around the week though. Their was one part I had diffuculty. I think it was happening at the end or the middle of episode. Well, anyways thanks for reading my review for the eppy. Peace out. This review is written for the television (TV for short) series ,CSI: Miami. I really need to fill this up, so yea bye! BYE!moreless
  • Man found not guilty of murdering wife

    7.0
    They have done this over and over again as the

    Husband didn't murder his wife and that the team was

    Going to find out what really happened because the man is

    Indeed guilty of murdering his wife. The acting and writing

    Really holds up the plot and that Caruso and company do it over and over again.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: near the end of the ep when Caleigh gets the pantyhose she says she was waiting for them to dry, but during the autopsy Alexx said they were covered in adipose (decaying human fat) which never dries. it seems odd that CSI Miami would over look this fact when it's been repeatedly stated on CSI Las Vagas.

    • In the episode, we see that Delko wears an orange sweater, Ryan wore an orange shirt under his blazer, while Ms West, the DA wore an orange suit. Was it like national orange day?

  • QUOTES (14)

    • (Arriving at a lake that has recently been filled)
      Ryan: Things change fast in Miami.

    • (Horatio has Ryan look for Rowe's first victim)
      Ryan: So we gotta find where he worked, where he lived, where he ate sushi.
      Horatio: ASAP.

    • Rowe: You know what, Caine? You shouldn't believe everything you read in the press. Everybody's got Melissa with a halo on her head. But she wasn't who you thought she was.
      Horatio: Is that why you killed her?

    • (Horatio restrains Richard Bowman from nearing the body of his daughter Melissa)
      Bowman: What do I do now, Lieutenant?
      Horatio: Let's remember Melissa the way she was, alright? Let's do that.

    • Calleigh: For a perfect murder there's a lot that doesn't make sense.

    • Gaffney: It's called a silent chain.
      Horatio: Well it's talking now, isn't it?

    • Ryan: I liked your Erika Sykes exclusive about finding Rowe's weights.
      Delko: I didn't say any of that to her, she made it all up.
      Ryan: Huh, where have I heard that before? Oh that's right, I've said the same thing.
      Delko: Give it a rest, Wolfe.
      Ryan: Equal time, bro. Equal time.

    • Rowe: Were you just in the neighbourhood and thought you'd stop by for a little police harassment?

    • Delko: Look I'm not Ryan, Erika. Okay? I'm not gonna talk to you about the Rowe case. (walks off)
      Erica: You just did.

    • Allison Grady: A jury found him innocent.
      Horatio: Never confuse an acquittal with innocence…

    • Ryan: What are we looking at?
      (the body of a woman is found )
      Eric: We're looking at Steven Rowe behind bars.

    • Calleigh: What woman wears pantyhose in Miami?

    • Horatio: Hate doesn't trouble you, Ms. West?
      Monica West: Of course it does.
      Horatio: I'm glad to hear that, because hate should trouble us all.

    • Ryan: There used to be a lake here and we think there was a body dumped in it.
      Foreman: Yeah, but we drained it a few months ago and filled it up with trash and nobody found no body.
      Delko: Well you wouldn't, if you weren't looking for it, but we will be.
      Foreman: Right now you're not. If I shut down, I lose ten grand, a minute.
      Delko: Well uh, do you want to lose another ten arguing about it, or do you want to let us get to work.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Suspect Gaffney mentions that the newspapers said he went "Hannibal on his victim." Dr. Hannibal Lecter is a psychotic killer who eats his victim in the quadrilogy that includesRed Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Hannibal Rising.
