Episode Summary

EDIT
An 18-year-old girl is stabbed to death in a bathroom of a popular Miami nightclub. Horatio learns that the victim was an investigative aide working for Alcohol Beverage Control and was monitoring underage drinking. As Horatio interviews the club's owner, an unknown man drives by the club, sees that the police are there, and crashes his car while fleeing the scene. However, the case gets more complicated when they discover another murdered victim inside the car. DNA from the second victim's watch ultimately leads them to a day spa where the services may not be entirely legal. Meanwhile, Calleigh and Ryan work together to determine whether an insecure and underage teenager at the club that night had anything to do with the murder.moreless

  • Drinking will kill you in the end

    9.9
    At times like these I am glad that I don't drink

    This is what the show was telling people about

    Drinking will kill you in the end

    This episode where a teen is found stabbed at a nightclub

    As well as another victim

    Proves that there may be more perbertraitors

    That may have been involved in their killings

    Drinking isn't worth it at all

    Could ruin relationships, not just destroy the one who drinks lives, but their families and friends lives in the process along with it!moreless
  • A boring and silly episode

    6.2
    Well..what can I truly say about "Legal"? It was about a girl who helped bust clubs who let underage people drink was murdered. You think it's because of that she was killed. Turns out it wasn't. The man who killed her did so because she didn't let him buy her a drink. Unless you have some kind of mental disorder, no one would kill somebody for that reason. The 2nd murder was of a man who was involved with a prostitution ring fronting as a massage parlour. This episode was very boring, too case-centric. It was so obvious who the killers were, you could tell about 10 minutes into each case. Overall this was a mediocre episode.moreless
