Episode Summary

EDIT
Horatio and Speedle's case hinges on the testimony of a forensic-evidence enthusiast who stole a blood-drenched latex glove from the scene of the murder of a man who was stabbed to death with a butterfly knife. When Speedle tracks him down, the CSI wannabe is impressed by the ease with which Speedle was able to locate him, and the two begin to develop a slight bond when he shows up at the crime lab the night before he is set to testify. However, their relationship is cut short when the young man is found dead in his forensics-shrine of a home. Meanwhile, Delko and Calleigh probe the shooting death of a young woman whose body is found wrapped in a plastic garbage bag in a dumpster near the ritzy Miami club where she worked.moreless

    A mexican is stabbed to death and the killer used a butterfly knife. The killer followed the victim until he fell and killed in him broad day light. A man went under the police tape and stole evidence. He was believed to be a CSI wannabe. The guy who stole the glove is now being used as a CSI member. Wally turned up dead. the girld held her down. The shooter was the bartender. Danny left his blood at the murder site and they got him. This was a very good episode. It was very special and Wally's story really touched me.moreless
  • Average episode. Tim Speedle: Incredibly annoying!

    7.7
    This one was a solid CSI: Miami episode. The two storylines were exciting.



    The storyline about the waitress who had won in the lottery and didn't want to share her winnings with her co-workers had a lot of twists and was exactly why I watch CSI: Miami. That was a good one!



    The main storyline was focussing on a murder in a park, where the murderer chased the victim and stabbed him several times with a butterfly knife. However, what dragged this episode down into mediocrity was, once again, Tim Speedle being the summit of annoyance:



    He interrogated this little (btw harmless) wannabe CSI who stole evidence from the crime scene. Throughout the whole time he talked to the guy in a condescending manner.



    Then, the next day they had to show up in court. In the elevator Horation told Speedle that the little geek wouldn't be coming. To which Speedle excruciatingly annoying replied: "Why? Does he want us to pick him up?" But it turned out that he was found dead.



    At the end of the episode, however, Speedle was portrayed as the only one who ever believed in the little geek and that he had a special relationship with him. What??? Anyone???moreless
  • This was one of the best episodes of the season. I actually enjoyed this one.

    This was one of the best episodes of the season. I actually enjoyed this one.



    A crucial piece of evidence is stolen from a crime scene by a CSI wannabe. It doesn't take too long for Speed to track him down, but now that he has there's a chance that the Glove that was stolen might not be admissable in court & it all the whole case rests on the testimony of the CSI wannabe.



    Speed & the young man develop a slight bond and on the morning that he is set to testify he is found dead in his home. Speed thinks that he was murdered because he was going to testify but Alex soon reveals that it wasn't murder but suicide.



    Delko & Calleigh's case was interesting too, they were investigating the death of a young woman who was found in a dumpster near the club that she worked in.



    We find out that Calleigh's afraid of ants, which was pretty funny especially when she tried to face her fear.moreless
