  • After making a long trip by boat to the US a Cuban refugee runs up a Miami beach only to be killed when he steps on a land mine. While investigating the scene, Frank accidentally steps on another mine and puts his life in jeopardy.


    This is probably the most disappointing and ridiculous episode of the season. A few questions I would like to ask. First how did the planter of the land mines on the beach know where the refugee was going to step? Also, when Horatio shot the man at close range in the back of the head, shouldn't Horatio have been splattered with blood and brain matter? Finally, what was the point of that stupid subplot involving Delko? CSI: Miami is a great show but "Throwing Heat" is definitely an episode not worth remembering. Let's hope the next episode is better!
