  • Horatio and the team investigate three murders that occurred during Spring Break.

    7.0
    This episode is an interesting one for a few reasons. One reason being that it seemed to move at a very slow pace. I suppose that is a good thing because it did make the story easy to follow and did not seem rushed even for a television episode. One positive point is the episode's final scene. The killer said what they did was worth spending the rest of their life in prison, but soon has second thoughts. I have just one question: how did the killer get the female victim out of the hotel room to the laundry service?moreless
  • What a disappointing episode...if this was what my spring break would be like, I would just stay home and play video games.

    6.5
    I gotta say I'm not impressed with this episode's many flaws: A missing series regular whose absence is not explained, a far-fetched triple homicide investigation and how it's all connected, and a major omission of evidence. I won't get into the plot details, but let's just say it was jarring as a viewer to try to figure out how the killer could've jumped from one crime scene to another to kill all three people. If the killer had some kind of teleportation device, then I would accept that. Otherwise, it would be impossible to pull off this kind of feat without accomplices. At least whoever appeared in this episode had some kind of fun here.moreless
  • not the best episode but it wasn't the worst either.

    6.0
    The best part of the episode was the event that had lead up to the murders. That awful video of how they treated the murderer a year earier. Honestly, I felt like I would have wanted to show those three idiots what it's like to be humiliated. They made me so angry and it was hard to feel sorry that they were dead. One might feel sorry for their families but not the actual victims, although I don't believe that killing someone is the best kind of revenge. Anyway, I didn't like the timeline between each murder. It all went so fast. How she managed to find all three of them get them to follow her and kill them. I mean going from the roof to the beach and then back to her room to kill the girl just seems to quick. Not to mention that she dyed her hair as well. So this episode was good, but not very good and certainly far from being one of the best I've ever seen. Hope it's better next week, although something tells me that I will not like that episode either. It seems to much unrealistic for me. But who knows? I might get suprised.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • This would be the first time in the show's history that a regular(Eva La Rue)doesn't appear in an episode.

    • Goof: When Ryan and Jesse are with the buried body of Paul 'The Program' Arnett, the body appears to be buried in a standing position. Jesse also comments on the depth of the hole and that the amount of sand displacement suggests more than one killer.

      At the end when we see Courtney push Paul into the 'hole' we see him land lying on his back in a very shallow hole. Anyone buried in sand in that way can easily just sit up and get out of the sand.

    • Chelsea Hobbs (Courtney Haywood) and Cassie Scerbo (Hilary Swanson) both star as leads in ABC Family drama 'Make it or Break it' together

    • Although credited as a series regular, Eva LaRue does not appear in this episode.
