  • Two men are found dead in their homes. One of them is Natalia's ex-husband Nick Townsend. Internal Affairs immediately arrests Natalia for his murder. Horatio and his team soon struggle with dealing with Natalia's situation and trying to do their jobs.moreless

    I was disppointed in this episode from the beginning because it recycles a storyline used in a recent episode of CSI: NY titled "Raising Shane" (that aired just a few weeks prior to this one) in which a CSI is falsely accused of murder. What redeems this episode to a certain degree is how well written it is and how the writers took a familiar storyline and did something new with it and made it entertaining. Recycling may be good for the enviornment, but not so for great television shows like CSI: Miami.moreless
  • Not bad, I suppose.

    It's not bad, I guess. You know, I really don't like Natalia and I was hoping she was actualy the killer. I think the fact that I dislike her got in the way of what a good job they did twisting the two crime scenes together. I wonder why Nick stole that stuff (if they mentioned it in the episode, I don't remember it). Valera admitting to the murder, really through me in a loop. Then Eric and Nick getting violent and Ryan coming to save the day. Whoo! Go Ryan! So ,we finally meet the night shift. DNA boy isn't bad looking.moreless
  • Nick (natalia's ex) is murdered (let's all grief for a few seconds. Everyone has mourned?)

    This episode was the Natalia-show and I don't understand what she did to deserve this. Don't get me wrong, she is a fine actress, but what storyline did Ryan get? Why can't they give Valera a more interesting role? Well they gave her the role of stupid friend who was stupid enough to date Natalia's ex stupid mistake. I think... they just used her for that, because they didn't really want to introduce a new character. Buhu. Anyhow, I always like the whole 'internal affairs' things, because it shows the more human side of the MiamiDade lab. Okay they are tough, okay they can solve every case; but people, they are not perfect, plus they have lives too so it's kinda normal they get involved. I kinda loathe Jake. I don'tknow why, but he bugs me, he's all loose and arrogant like 'hey I can do this with my eyes closed, this acting job', but maybe that's just his cocky character. And ..he's hot. The search for evidence was more exciting than other times, and it was a very good episode. Until the end. I mean: let's hold on to the good things? C'mon Horatio, you gotta do better than that! The guy beat her up! I'm just glad Nick's gone; no more Natalia shows (unless she has another dumb-as-a-post sister who is kidnapped, no? ), anyone?) for a whole while...moreless
  • the investigation of one murder directly correlates with the investigation of another murder as one of their own csi's is brought up on charges of murder

    i really loved this ep..i just wish i didnt keep getting interrupted..spoiler..from the start i was hooked..b/c we see cops after natalia and then they arrest her? and ur like wait a minute..what happened..and then they go back in time to an investigation before that one..that investigation was good and it was nice that when the other person died they had something of value from that murder..but the real one was the one natalia was in trouble for..then another csi came clean..luckily it turned out it wasnt either one of them..it was a guy whose wife killed the prior murder person..isnt it awesome how some things relatemoreless
  • Nick is murdered and Natalia is the suspect.

    8.5
    A Natalia episode! She is arrested for the murder of Nick Townsend and she must face the night shift CSI, Jake Bekerly, when Jake don't trust her. Valera made a confession to Jake that she accidentally killed Nick, but Jake don't trust her too. Meanwhile, Calleigh, Ryan and Delko investigate the death of Benjamin.



    OK. This is one better episode. At least CSI: Miami shows improvement from this episode. Nick is murdered, and Natalia is arrested. This plot seems to be too normal and boring. Then later on, Horatio have the killer and their name is clear. This is also normal. Good episode, but not as interesting as the synopsis given.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Jake can't just arrest Natalia just off the street. He would first have to go to the DA and present the case, then a judge would have to issue a arrest warrant.

    • When Ryan goes back to the victim's house and picks up a piece of evidence from a puddle of blood, his latex gloves are clean except for the tips of his fingers. But in the next shot he's got blood on two of his knuckles.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Jake: How'd you find that?
      Horatio: I followed the evidence, Jake.
      Jake: So did I.
      Horatio: Yes, but in your case, you allowed the evidence to fit your theory, Jake, instead of the other way around. And by the way, the spotlight is off my lab now.
      Jake: So you're booting me off the case.
      Horatio: In so many words.

    • Craven: I want a lawyer.
      Horatio: Spoken like the last request of a guilty man.

    • Natalia: Hey, Maxine, did you get anything on the blood swipe on the vic's pants?
      Valera: (sarcastically) You know, contrary to popular belief, breathing down one's neck does not improve productivity or make CODIS run any faster.

    • Natalia: I cannot believe you got here before me. Jump the gun much?
      Nick: How long is it going to take to process before I can get in to clean up?
      Natalia: I don't know. I have no idea. Why, what's the big hurry? Blood's not going anywhere.
      Nick: Got a little lunch date.
      Natalia: Lunch date? Really? Well, then I think I might just take my sweet time.

    • Crime scene cleanup guy: You guys had your run of the place. I was given the go ahead.
      Ryan Okay, well, now you're getting the go away.

    • ( Horatio and Natalia are looking at a photo of hers with Nick when they were together)
      Horatio: Take a look at that. Some of that was good.
      Natalia:(Shocked) Some of that was really incredible.
