Goof: Neither Ryan nor Walter are medical examiners. Why didn't Dr. Loman examine the body?
Goof: The text messages Matthew receives just before being shot are numerals, 3, 2, 1. When they break the encryption in the lab and view the messages, the numbers are spelt out, Three, Two, One.
Guest stars Sendhil Ramamurthy and Leonard Roberts both starred in the NBC show Heroes.
Capecitabine ( the cancer drug Nicky was treated with) is only given in tablet form, not intravenously as shown.
Goof: At the very beginning of the episode we see Corinne and Monica in the hot tub in what looks like the dead of night. When Monica finds Corinne dead, she calls 911 and then we see the Police responding to the murder scene in broad day light.
When Delko walks in to the lab where Natalia is testing some samples, she calls him Adam instead of Eric.
Goof: When Horatio breaks the doll at the doll factory, he puts his finger into the broken residue, tastes it and says it is pure heroin. While this has been done in many old Police movies, Police in America today have been warned never to do this for over 50 years now.
Goof: I guess this was an intentional money saving goof, it just shouldn't have been so obvious to viewers. In the very opening scene we see a white convertible sway off the road and hit a fire hydrant, probably one of the most solid objects a car can hit.
Watching in slo-mo or frame by frame you can see the hydrant get struck and pushed aside but there is zero damage to the vehicle. The very next scene is an overhead and again there is clearly no damage to the vehicle.
For this episode CSI: Miami reshduled to Sundays 8:00 p.m.
Trivia: Although it aired as the 199th episode it is the 200th episode to have been filmed. It aired earlier due to the show not airing a new episode on November 28th.
Goof: The homemade gun appeared not to have a scope, which means that there's no reason why it would catch the sun like it did, thus alerting Horatio to the presence of a sniper. Without a scope, Shane would have to have exceptional eyesight and marksman skills to even get close to hitting a target from that distance - even using a conventional weapon.
Furthermore, it seems unlikely that Shane would be able to fire so many shots in quick succession, given that the gun only took a single round at a time.
The musical sting in the opening dream sequence (when the gravity is changing in the room), is heavily reminiscent of the soundtrack from Inception, a 2009 blockbuster about, what else? Dreams.
Guest stars Erika Eleniak and John Allen Nelson were both regulars on Baywatch and worked together during the show's first season.
At the beginning of the episode, while in pursuit of the suspect, Ryan is holding his talkie-walkie, but when he jumps over the rail, he doesn't have it in his hands anymore.
In this episode, Horatio sent Melissa to try and get Starling to incriminate himself. He figured out that Melissa was wired and took it off her. But she had a second wire. In the episode Down to the Wire, Horatio sent Charlie Decker to try and get Kurt Rossi to incriminate himself but Rossi knew he was wired and took it off him. But Horatio planted a second one.
Goof: The sequence of events at the beginning of this episode do not match what happened at the end of the last episode (Mommie Deadest). Here we see Eric turning back to speak with Calleigh and a paper from his folder flying out of his hand as he turns, and then the car blew up and Calleigh runs over to help him. In the previous episode, Eric turned back indecisively, flips open his folder and a paper blows away, as he is reaching for it the car blows up, then he is seen struggling to sit up by himself before Calleigh gets there.
Goof: Laura Williams is struck with a black rod, not a silver baseball bat. The attacker was an adult, wearing all black clothing, not matching the killer revealed in the end. Also, the dialog shown on the tape at the beginning doesn't match what's said in the end flashback.
Featured Music: Never Forget You by The Noisettes
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.
