  • While his wife makes a sales pitch to a group of prospective buyers, a wealthy real estate broker is murdered in his home. When Horatio arrives at the crime scene, he is stunned to discover that the murder victim's wife is Kyle's mother.moreless

    If what appears on this website is correct, "Raising Caine" will be the final episode of the season due to the Writer's Guild strike. The season could not have ended on a better note. I'm happy to say that CSI: Miami is back after many disappointments. Elizabeth Berkley has definitely put the embarrassment of Showgirls behind her giving a terrific performance as Kyle's devious mother. The story was very well written and definitely leaves the viewers in suspense for the next chapter in this story. After seeing this episode I'm sure the Academy of Motion Picture and Television Producers will realize the importance of the Writers Guild of America.moreless
  • Horatio, It's Julia.

    Julia, Horatio ex-girlfriend, Kyle's mother, shows up in Miami and she's now a wife of a millionaire. She wants Kyle back and will do anything to bring him back, including murder. Oh my god, this is one of the best episode I've ever watch in this series. Julia is hot! But not as hot as Calliegh. Great episode with creative plot. The ending is a cliffhanger, I don't like cliffhanger but I have to admit that this is a very good cliffhanger. The writer certaily did a very good job to this episode and this is the best season finale so far.moreless
  • Nooo! Don't you dare leave Kyle with that shrew!

    8.5
    Oh, I knew it... it would be just too beautiful if Kyle did not choose the wrong side. Maybe I'm too emotional about it, but heeey, Horatio did his best! They're not gonna disregard that, are they?

    And why do episodes always have to end in cutting edge moments? Is that woman gonna survive? I did not look that way, they didn't even really look for her, only Calleigh had some sort of a hunch... let's hope she'll be fine and will come back to reveal how dishonorable Julia in fact is. Anyways, I didn't expect Kyle's mother to show up! Plus for the TPTB for going in this direction, but wrrr, why is she such a shrew? I mean, was she always like that? Do good boys fall in love with bad girls? Does it work this way, haha? Right now I am a little trashed with H's... taste in women. Gosh, she's a devil.

    "Mrs Winston, Frank, is Kyle's mother." -- he couldn't have been more formal saying it. He deserves a big "wooow" as he must have been shocked as well, right? I was. And then wen she said he was wasting his time because he still loved her -- that was playing with his feelings. I hate people doing it. Die, Julia, die!moreless
  • The producers should just put Kyle in the credits.

    9.5
    Please don't get me wrong: I loved this episode and it's definitely one of my favorites from this season. I've seen it at least three times and I plan on watching it again. I pretty much live for this show.



    Now, having said that, is it just me, or is this whole Kyle story line exhausting? I loved it when the crimes focused on criminals BESIDES Kyle and his juvy blues. It seems like every few weeks we're seeing this kid. I did like the introduction of Kyle's mother, though, and I think it was a good addition to the series. I'm hoping that Kyle will now dissapear for the next season and we can go back to watching CSI: Miami instead of CSI: Kyle.



    Again, I know I'm not being fair about this episode and, as I said, I did love it, but I wish that we could have the old CSI: Miami back.moreless

    A good episode giving us a new nemesis in Julia Horatio's ex wife. Another episode focusing on Horatio's son with the introduction of his mother. She was trouble in the past and shows up the wife of a murder victim who was about to divorce her. The show did a good job of making us wonder if she was really a bad guy. A lot of revolving suspects in her husbands murder and then the witness at her sons kidnapping trial. By episodes end we see that she had the witness killed and was most likely responsible for her husbands death. Good introduction to more of H's past and the childish whispers of the team over Julia's return were funny. Good episode can't wait to see what turmoil Julia brings to H's life and the team.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Just before the scene with the car sinking into the swamp, we see an alligator turning and crawling into the water. This is the same stock footage that we see periodically throughout this series. This short scene and the one with the same birds always taking off in flight must be the producers' favourite clips to add to the episodes.

    • Goof: Kyle says that he knows kidnapping Kathleen Newbury was wrong, "even though Rick Bates put that gun to my head." Yet during the episode "Dangerous Son" when the kidnapping takes place, Rick Bates is shown threatening Kyle with words only. There is nothing in the episode to suggest Bates even owns a gun.

    • Goof: When Eric enters the morgue, you see that Mr. Winston has the stick in him. Then when the camera gets close up it is gone and then Alexx sticks it in him.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Horatio: What are you doing?
      Julia: I'm visiting our son. You failed to mention his trial today. I wanted to support him.
      Horatio: And you failed to mention you've used five aliases over the last 15 years.
      Julia: When I met you, you were undercover for a living.
      Horatio: But I'm a police officer.

    • Eric: Killer wasn't on the floor. The killer was under it.
      Alexx: But there are no basements in Miami.
      Eric: (smiles) Alexx, money can buy you a basement, if you want.

    • Julia: You are wasting your time.
      Horatio: Why is that?
      Julia: Because you still love me.

    • Horatio: Where is Mrs. Winston? (looks over his shoulder and turns around)
      Julia: I'm over here John. It's not your name anymore is it? It's Horatio Caine. I like it.
      Frank: You know her Horatio?
      Horatio: Mrs. Winston, Frank, is Kyle's mother.

    • Julia: You've known about Kyle? For how long?
      Horatio: Long enough, Julia, long enough.
      Julia: I left him with my mom. Always planning to get him back. I wasn't equipped to raise him, (looks away for a moment) and I didn't want to burden you. Where is he now?
      Horatio: He's in jail.
      Julia: Can I see him?
      Horatio: When the time is right. We'll take care of this first, okay?
      (Julia smiles slightly up at Horatio)

    • Larry Hopkins: (about the warrant he's been handed) Well, I have some clients coming in shortly, but I will take a look at this–
      Horatio: Do it now, or I'll tear your office apart.
