Episode Summary

EDIT
A man and his wife are trying to drive out of a hurricane's fury when they strike and kill a man in the blinding storm. Horatio finds that the lack of impact wounds on the victim's knees suggest that he struck the car as opposed to the car striking him. Meanwhile, in a seemingly unrelated case, Horatio finds another victim of the hurricane impaled on a fence. However, as the CSIs uncover the scattered remains of the post-storm evidence, it seems that these two cases may have a deadly connection. Meanwhile, after Calleigh witnesses a man looting a house, she realizes that she's got another case on her hands when she finds his ex-wife inside shot to death.moreless

  • The team investigates a murder after category 2 Hurricane Anthony hits.

    5.0
    I couldn't get past the whole lack of knowledge of hurricanes to enjoy this episode. Technical directors should do a little more research on what a hurricane landfall is. Ferocious winds with the sun shining with a few drops of rain doesn't mean landfall.



    Living on the Gulf Coast, this episode was almost as bad as the Tsunami one. If you're going to use a natural disaster as part of your plot, at least make the natural disaster plausible. To be honest I really couldn't tell you much about the rest of it because I was so taken back by the inclusion of a hurricane in such an unrealistic manner.moreless
  • A body flying through the air, another spiked on a fence and a bullet shot from a bucket without a gun......hurricaine 101

    A very good episode. It showed real nicely what a full-blown hurricaine can do! Have you ever seen a guy picked up on the beach and dropped in the middle of a street? wow! Now I know why surfing is dangerous!

    The story lines seemed quite believable, although I was laughing at the bullet propelled out from the bucket into the the woman's neck. The fighting over a couple of boards to secure a house is something that happens a lot, apparently. Of course also the looting - there are always people taking advange of nature's bad moods.....

    The story with the guy spiked on the fence was very touching....The scenes with Horatio were very powerful.......brought a teeny-tiny tear to my eye.....Though, I still wonder how he could have survived for as long as he did. I mean he had a piece of metal through his chest and lived for what - hours?



    All in all, great episode!moreless
  • Hurricane Anthony

    9.5
    A dead body is flown on a car. He was running around in a hurricane. Horatio stands by a man who dies because he gets stabbed by a fence post from the hurricane. The wife's brother had issues with his brother-in-law. Calleight found a woman shot in her house also. The roses under the hispanics body weren't dead so the hispanic was killed before Hurricane Anthony. The surfer got caught stealing 1.5 mil from the mob. Blood from the nails was the neighbors. The husband didn't shoot her. The driver killed the hispanic b/c he was doubling his board and the hispanic wanted to put up his.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: In the beginning of the episode, as the shot pans over the car to Alexx, the reflection of the crane-cam is visible in the rear window.

    • Goof - Factual Errors: In the teaser, the radio weather reporter mentions winds in excess of 145 miles per hour. This makes the approaching storm a category 4 storm (winds between 131 and 155 mph). However, both Alex and a radio announcer later refer to Anthony as a category 2 storm (winds between 96 and 110 mph). Wind speed is the deciding factor in category ratings for hurricanes, not rainfall, meaning that a lower category storm hitting a city can do more damage than a higher category one making landfall over open country.

      On the naming discrepancy, a category 5 Hurricane Andrew hit florida in 1992. It was second only to 2005's Katrina in total property damage. As is customary with highly destructive storms, Andrew was permanently retired from the list of hurricane names. The actual "A" storm for 2003, the year in which this episode takes place, was Tropical Storm Ana. It was the earliest tropical storm on record, but never developed into a category-rated hurricane, nor did it make landfall. It did, however, generate swells that caused the capsizing of a boat in Florida with two associated deaths. The most powerful storm of that season, Isabel, had little impact on Florida, making landfall in the Carolinas and Virginia.

      The custom of naming hurricanes was formalized in 1953, using women's names. In 1979, men's names were added to the list. Through 2012, Anthony has not been included on the list (except on CSI: Miami).

    • Goof: At the beginning, the media broadcasts reports about hurricane Andrew, but later into the episode, this changes to hurricane Anthony as in the episode title.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Speed: (Carrying two heavy boxes) You were supposed to meet me at the truck…
      Delko: I figured you could use the exercise. It's good for you.
      Speed: Thank you.

    • Speed: Well, assumption is the mother of disaster…

    • Horatio: Disasters can bring out the best in people or the worst.

    • Delko: Got a category 2 hurricane and we get sent out to a traffic incident. What's up with dispatch?
      Speed: They're slammed with thousands of calls, so we take them one at a time till order's been restored.
      Delko: I hate to see what a category 4 looks like.
      Speed: So would dispatch.

    • Horatio: So, God exhales and everything goes sideways, huh?

    • Calleigh: Hey, I heard you found out who the car crash victim really is.
      Speedle: Yep, he was a bad guy.
      Calleigh: You know, maybe not all bad.
      Speedle: I think the mob would disagree 1.5 million times.
      Calleigh: Yeah, but you know what I was thinking? If he hadn't stolen from the mob, then he never would have become a beach bum in Florida, and then he never would have gotten picked up by the hurricane, and if he hadn't have gotten picked up by the hurricane, he never would have hit Burton's car, and if it wasn't for hitting Burton's car, Burton would have gotten away with murder.
      Delko: Leave it to you, Calleigh, to find something good to come out of a hurricane.
      Calleigh: They do alleviate global warming.
      Speedle: She's, uh, way to cheerful.
