  • Worst episode in a bad season. Diddy makes his return, wearing a "hello my name is 'Good Guy'" name tag this time to remind him how to act. Oh yeah, and some girl that no one, including her fiance, seem to care about gets shot on a boat.moreless

    1.0
    Someone might want to tell Diddy that the emotion you are searching for when your fiance is killed is "sad". His only 2 acting modes appear to be smiling, and not smiling. Hint, if you don't care that your fiance is dead, why should we? And Emily Proctor, the only cast member with any actual acting props, can't even pull off that Calleigh would have any interest in Eric. This show is really circling the drain this season. Skip all shows with Diddy in them, and if Calleigh and Eric are a couple, pull the plug on the whole series.moreless
  • In this episode we learn of erics true father and of his growing relationship with caleigh

    10
    This episode is exactly why I watch this series, personally this is one of my favorite episodes of the series, even though every other episode in the series was perfect to. This episode starts are with a robbery on a boat, but then shifts to Eric meeting his father. After Eric meets his father he is placed in prision for not being a legal United States citizen, because he is from Cuba (even though if you are cuban and get to u.s. you are allowed to stay). Erics father says that he owes eric nothing, but he eventually comes around and helps to get Eric out of jail. We also see some growing of the relationship between Eric and Caleighmoreless

    10
    In this episode of CSI Miami, the following happens. We open this episode with a party on a boat, which then leads to a robbery and murder. We soon learn that the female victim is the fiancée of one of the best ADA’s in Miami. Soon the boat used in the robbery/murder is found, but the couple who committed the crimes have gone. Soon using the Wi-Fi connection from the stolen laptop, the team are able to track down the couple who stole it, through the IP address. H soon learns who has been hired to kill Eric and it’s..... Yelina. We soon learn that the shot that killed the fiancée came from under the water from another person, so the team believe that she was the intended target. Word gets out that Eric birth certificate is a fake and so he is taken into custody. Calliegh goes to see Eric and she seems hurt that he didn’t tell her about the situation. We also learn that he is going to be deported. We soon learn who killed the fiancée although he claims not to know who hired him. The team soon track down the man, who set it all up, and his daughter was murdered and he believed that the ADA helped to get her murderer off. We also learn that he passed on Eric’s birth certificate the authorities. When the lab runs tests on his biological fathers tooth, we learn that he is an American, born in New Mexico and not Russia as everyone had believed. So Eric is now an American citizen and so he gets released, and he runs into the arms of........ Calliegh. And so happens the magical kiss that everyone (all Hip Huggers!) has been waiting for....twice!moreless
  • A Great episode

    9.5
    I have been waiting for this episode the come about since last season. Eric finally finds out who his father really is and tho he hates his father in the beginning, finds out he comes to his aid and keeps him in the United States. But the best part of the show was Eric and Caliegh finally coming to terms with their feeling for each other. Their acting was so real it makes you wonder hmmmm. And of course H is always there to help when ever one of his own is in need of his expertise. That is why I watch this specific show. The players become intertwined with each other and a bond is built accordingly.moreless
  • One of my favourite episodes of the year! HipHuggers F I N A L L Y and Sean Combs returns!

    9.5
    I loved this episode! Calleigh and Eric's first real kiss! after 7 years!



    i was really pleased with all the actors in this episode, Sean Combs wasn't too bad this week either.



    Eric finally found out the truth about his father and where he came from. i loved the fact that Derek Powell stood up for Eric about his credibility as a CSI.



    The icing on the cake was definitely Calleigh picking Eric up from jail after his fun-in with the feds and taking him back to her place for an american meal because he's new in the country *cute*.



    Doesn't suprise me that Calleigh has the safest house in Miami, its full of guns! What more could a bullet girl ask for?? Can't wait for next week!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: Eric's birth cerfiticate reads: "CERTIFICACION DE NECIMIENTO", however it is mispelled. Instead it should say: "CERTIFICACION DE NACIMIENTO".

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Powell: I don't think I could represent criminals anymore.
      Horatio: Well, I could always use a new prosecutor.

    • Judge: However, you know better than anybody, a defense attorney will have a field day with the DNA he recovered from that scuba tank.
      Powell: On what grounds, Your Honor?
      Judge: However wrong the information was, Officer Delko chose not to come forward when he learned of his illegal citizenship status. Speaks to the character of the witness.
      Powell: Your Honor, I'm the best defense attorney in the city and I can't touch the character of this man.

    • Calleigh: Why didn't you say anything to me? I mean, you find out your birth certificate is a fake, that's a huge deal, don't you think?
      Eric: I just couldn't wrap my brain around it.
      Calleigh: We're supposed to do stuff together now though, right? I mean, all the stuff that you said to me at the hospital about us.
      Eric: I meant all of it. It's like all of a sudden... my life is a lie.
      Calleigh: (chuckles) It's all right. I happen to like the lie.

    • Horatio: So, what happened?
      Yelina: The hit is still on, Horatio. Eric is the target. Third page you can find out where Sharova might be. Horatio... I'm the one assigned to kill Eric.

    • Derek Powell: I've heard about you losing your wife. How did you get over it?
      Horatio: You don't get over it and you never will.

    • Calleigh: You missed out! (they hug) I was gonna marry you but your dad stepped in.
      Eric: (chuckles) What makes you think I would say yes? Maybe I met somebody special on the inside.
      Calleigh: I doubt his cooking is as good as mine. Hey, why don't I take you back to my place, I'll make you a traditional American dinner since you're new to our country?
      Eric: Sounds good...but danger has been following me everywhere I go... (Calleigh kisses him) Calleigh, I'm serious. I don't want anything to happen to you. (she kisses him again)
      Calleigh: Come on. I have the safest house in Miami. Do you know how many guns I have? (they start to walk away) You protected me. I'll protect you.
