  • This episode basically characterizes CSI: Miami, with its unpredictable plot and sudden turning points.

    9.0
    When I first read about this episode being played on my local CW station in syndication, I wasn't really looking forward to it, until I actually watched it taped afterwards. This episode pretty much reasons why I watch "CSI: Miami". It's because the plots are unpredictable, and characterization and plotting is very deep. It is amazing how intelligent the CSI's are when they are able to trace evidence to specific types of objects, like the dead man in the beach getting killed by a belt buckle, and the investigators noticing a man at the beach w/o a belt. That's why I tape my local CW station's late-night reruns of the show every weekend (it shows two episodes late Saturday/Sunday nights) because I look forward to the exciting , dramatic plots of each episode.moreless
  • Tying up some loose ends - and revealing a little more about the characters.

    8.2
    If I have to critcise this show, it would be that when the writers want us to know something of the backgrounds of the team, they can't seem to focus too well on the plot at the same time. The result was, I felt, that the solution to the crimes of Walter Resden was rushed through and probably tied up too neatly.

    Along the way, we learnt that Natalia and Eric had had a relationship and Eric showed himself to be a good guy, despite his past reputation with the girls, when he promised to stand by Natalia if she was pregnant - which in fact she wasn't. Personally, I think this was a good thing, and I would like to see the writers get back to basics in future episodes and stop the constant hints at romance between members of the team - this show doesn't need that, and if it was felt that including more love interest would draw in more viewers, I feel that they've got it wrong and it may have the opposite effect.

    Slightly too unbelievable that the girl who saw her parents killed by Resden should then unwittingly go on to have a relationship with him, but it all led to the point where it transpired that Resden murdered his foster siblings because they didn't help prevent his abuse at the hands of their foster father.

    We then learnt that Horatio too, was an abused child - this and other things we have learnt about his childhood, tell us why he is emotionally unable to open up to people, why he hides himself behind those shades, and why he goes beyond the call of duty to help women and children who are suffering or have been hurt by violent men. To anyone who watches the show on a regular basis, this much should be obvious, so I don't understand why people knock this character.

    All in all not the best of episodes but at least it answered some questions.moreless
  • Skeletons During a volley ball tournament the evidence of a murder leads to walter Reisen

    9.9
    The killer used a man's belt (walter's m.o.) Jennifer has a new boyfriend and Natalia thinks she might be pregnant. The trash man was paid to transfer a body. Another murder was in the same way Wilson family was. Walter Reisden was dating Jennifer and going by Lee. The bodies were frozen. Jennifer left with Walter. The kids were all from the same house and were all foster children together. Walter was beat and thrown in the closet walter wanted his older brother to tell him his story. Reisdens DNA was on a seat belt and H stood up for Walter. H was beaten on. The other bro stood up for him.moreless
  • The bad guy was creepy instead of threatening

    8.9
    The whole pregnancy thing was a huge let down. For once it would be nice to see the story go the other way instead of always being a false alarm. The woman whose parents were murdered was annoying. You know someone is after you and go internet dating? How stupid can you get.
  • H's nemesis is back.

    9.1
    We were first introduces to Walter Resdin in an earlier episode. He was able to get away, but not this time. Horatio is able to tell that the body found on the beach is more of his work and we learn he is dating the daughter of two of his victims but is not telling her his full name. We learn that Resdin was abused as a foster child and that he is paying back everyone that did not help him. Most of all we learn that Horatio was abused as a child. I still think Valera is the mole and I am glad that Natalia wasnt pregnant. Eric isnt ready for fatherhood.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In this episode, we learned that Natalia Boa Vista is divorced.

    • Two of the beach volleyball players that we see in the beginning of this episode are actually Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor. Kerri and Misty are in fact two real stars of the beach volley. Among numerous other victories, they won the 2004 Olympics gold medal at Athens, Greece by finishing off an unbeaten run throughout the tournament. This gold medal was the first won by an American women's team in beach volleyball in a sport that made its debut at the 1996 Olympic Games.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (Calleigh enters the lab where Boa Vista is not looking too well)
      Calleigh: Are you okay?
      Natalia: Just have a touch of the flu.
      Calleigh: Didn't you just have the flu?
      Natalia: Yeah, my luck, right?
      Calleigh: Are you sure that you're alright, 'cause you're really pale.
      Natalia: Yeah? Well it's worse in the morning.
      Calleigh: Well, if it's worth anything, chicken soup always works for me when I have the flu.
      Natalia: Chicken soup, okay, thanks.

    • (After Cooper told Natalia how hot Delko was at the beach)
      Delko: You've got a big mouth.
      Cooper: What did I do?
      Delko: You opened it.
      Cooper: Er...you and Boa Vista are..?
      Delko: Are none of your business.

    • Horatio: (to Yates about to hit Resden who is down) Whoa! Hold it right there old man! Don't move!
      Yates: Go ahead. You finish him off.
      Horatio: You already did that a long time ago.
      Yates: Real man doesn't need help.
      Horatio: And a real man, doesn't beat his kids either.
      Yates: Ya know without that gun, you're just a little punk, like him!
      Horatio: ...Okay (puts gun down and takes off gun and holster) here's what I'm gonna do for you. I, am gonna let you (sets down gun and holster) take your best shot at me. Okay, Morris? Take your best shot. Go ahead.
      (Yates gets ready to punch Horatio but stops)
      Horatio: That's what I thought. You can't do it, can you Morris? Not only are you a bully, but you're a coward.

    • Eric: Uh, ladies, this is D.C. We work together.
      Cooper: (Staring at two beautiful girls in beach attire) Hey…
      Eric: Give him a second. He'll get up to two syllables!
