  • This episode is too, too tragic, too painful, too incomplete. It is badly thought out, and poorly written.

    1.6
    This episode has caused me to stop watching this show. I'm now back into the original CSI. It's not so negative and tragic, it has more humour and the only people who die are the "victims" that are supposed to. I don't understand why you would begin something you don't bring to completion. It feels like Horatio just USED this sick woman for sex, he never really loved her. He is no longer the Hero in my eyes, SHE IS. She wanted marriage, a baby, a life....she got nothing! It's a mistake to think his having a wife (and even a child) would minimize his character. On the contrary, it actually enhances it, makes him more believable and human. I thought she was pretty, both inside and out, honest, brave, compassionate, everything I USED to think he was. I can't stand watching him anymore, especially with other women, it feels like adultry even though she's dead. It's just bad writing, a poor storyline and I can't even believe it comes from the same writers as the original.moreless

  • Part one of two-part episode.

    9.0
    The episode starts with Marisol and Horation in an ambulance and the Mala Noche gang stop them. That's so sad because Horatio and Marisol just married last episode, right?



    Poor Delko, his ex-girlfriend Gloria, tries to "vanquished" every woman who is near to Delko, and thought that Marisol is his wife!! Wow.



    However, Marisol died, and Eric and Horatio want to seek revenge to the Mala Noche gang member--Antonio Riaz. This episode is probably one of the best episode in this season, one of the highest ratings in CSI: Miami I've ever rate. But the writers can do better, especially for Ann Donahue, I thought she is the creator of this series.moreless
  • Opening scene with Marisol being shot and flashbacks tell the story what happened...

    5.5
    The "Mal Noche" gang trial turns bad when a diversion is created by the witness and the defendant goes free. One of Delko's ex-lover, Gloria, is intimidating all the women he is close to. After Natalia and Marisol's car windows are thrashed, Eric warns Gloria to back off..



    Later on, Eric and Marisol are shot. At first they thought it was Gloria but then finds out that it was actually the Mal Noche gang. As the ambulance transporting Marisol is on its way to the hospital, it gets blocked by a car of the gang members. A shooting between the gang members and Horatio occurs.



    On another note, how can Horatio be so calm when Marisol, his wife and the woman he loves got shot?? I mean, come on!! He doesn't show any emotions even after Marisol dies in the hospital!



    The story plot was not too bad, but Horatio's lack of emotions made this episode lose its dynamic.moreless
  • Mala noche get their revenge on Horatio by murdering his wife - and Eric's sister.

    7.5
    Firstly, someone has referred to Horatio marrying a sick girl, but I thought she was supposed to be in remission? I must admit for this storyline to be more believable they needed to be married for longer - it was hard to feel the pain, when the character hadn't been around for very long - it would have been nice if we could have seen some evidence of her making Horatio a happier person, then we would have had more empathy for his loss.

    I don't agree it brought Eric and Horatio closer, or healed any rift - Eric had already accepted the marriage and Horatio keeps a little distance between all of his team anyway - even though he looks out for them.

    The whole storyline was created so we can have a confrontation between Horatio and Eric and their enemies later on but there were many other ways of doing this...it would have been more believable if Yelena, or Ray junior had been murdered, actually.

    Still, I must confess I loved the part where Horatio takes out the would be ambushers "stay down..Stay down.." ...Classic H!moreless

    • Scenes with Marisol in the hospital featured sound effects including the tell-tale click of a respirator completing a cycle, which would've made more sense had she actually been attached to one.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Ryan: So this, my friend, is for you.
      Valera: A vial of bile! You're too good to me.

    • (Someone threw up in the courtroom and the puke is still in the janitor's closet)
      Calleigh: Could help us find another piece of the puzzle.
      Ryan: You're gonna make me collect that, aren't you.
      Calleigh: Uh-huh. Rank has its privileges.

    • Horatio: Memmo, now that you work for me, I want you to tell Riaz, that I said, he's a dead man!!!

    • Horatio: Memmo, in the unlikely event that I haven't made myself completely clear, I would like to remind you (Draws his gun and pushes it into Memmo's head) This is your last chance.

    • Gloria: You know, I'm starting to remember why we broke up.
      Delko: I NEVER FORGOT!

    • José: You're already a dead man.
      (Horatio fires)
      Horatio: Join the club.

    • Calleigh: I hear you're having girl trouble.
      Eric Delko: (laughs) Everybody hears everything in this place?
      Calleigh: Yeah, still is the rumor true?
      Eric Delko: You remember Gloria?
      Calleigh: (thinks back a ways and smiles) Oh, the crazy one. She was into reiki massage.
      Eric Delko: And sky diving
      Calleigh: And hunting, if I recall. That's quite a potent combination.
      Eric Delko: Yeah, but it didn't hurt that she looked the way she did.
      Calleigh: Yeah, well see, that's the problem, you love crazy until crazy loves you.
      Eric Delko: Yeah, well crazy has messed with every girl I've been with since, and I think she just busted up Boa Vista's car, so I've got to put a stop to it.
      Calleigh: My advice... talk to her once as Eric Delko.
      Eric Delko: And then?
      Calleigh: Talk to her again as a cop.
      Eric Delko: (laughs) Play hardball; I like your style.

    • Calleigh: (after finding packing tape stuck to the bottom of Jose Truillo's chair) Packing tape.
      Ryan: A loaded magazine was taped under there.

      Calleigh: Someone on the inside.

    • Natalia: (to Eric Delko, about Gloria) She's like the hang-up queen.
