  • A good episode of us Calliegh and Eric fans

    In this episode of CSI Miami, the following happens. Calliegh and Eric go to pick up an eye witness for a murder trail who is having second thoughts. They get him to come round to the idea again and he and Calliegh go through his testimony. Just then a cane comes crashing through the building. They all run and as the floor collapses the witness falls. Calliegh tries to hold on to him, but he's too heavy and he slips and dies. The team launch an investigation. Inside of the crane they find blood, through AFIS they discover a match and called the man, Kurt in for questioning. He claims the blood got there when he cut his arm on the job a few days before. Calliegh & Eric met with the witness's wife and son and they have a heated talk and the wife slaps Calliegh. Calliegh believes that they missed something at the crime scene and so she heads back there with Wolf. The team learn from the crane black box, that the crane wasn't operated from inside but from a wireless controller. The DNA on the neck strap matches that of his son. He is called in for questioning. He wanted to scare his father so that he would not testify, so that they didn't have to go into witness protection. But he couldn't control the crane and it lead to his father's untimely death. The team listen to his 911 call and hear that the killer flushed something down the toilet which may have been evidence, so they head there. They discover that the shell casing was flushed down there. They manage to get it out. They find a print on it that matches one of Joeys known associates. The team soon find the body of the victim. H gets Joey to admit that he murdered him. At the end of the episode we see Calliegh going to the morgue and says goodbye to the witness and cry's.moreless
  • Mislead again.

    The untimely death of a witness that Calleigh and Eric were preparing for an upcoming trial was the only bit of excitement found in this episode. It isn't everyday that someone dies as the result of a crane smashing through a high rise unless one has vengeful family members who want to make a powerful point. What the witness told Calleigh was reminicant of the trial testimony given by Lindsay Monroe in the CSI:NY episode, Sleight of Hand. The greiving father looking for revenge failed to allude any sympathy from me. One cannot be expected to feel sorry for a man who can't grasp the concept that his daughter's death was accidental. There was a fairly reviting dialogue exchange betwee the greiving father and Horatio, who clearly loves and misses having a relationship with Kyle. Beyond that, the rest of the cast was poorly utilized. While season seven is still getting warmed up, I hope that the remainder of the season won't turn into an early frost.moreless
  • Fighting for Dear Life!

What is worse is that the person that operated the crane is the angry son of the witness. We haven't seen the last of the crime lord. Not by a longshot.moreless
  • Calleigh and Eric and preparing a witness to testify in a hig profile murder case when a huge crane comes crashing through the building they are in. The witness is killed in the ensuing chaos leaving the team with no witness and no evidence.moreless

    As is the case with a previous episode which began with a human fireball running through a party, this episode begins in a way that really grabs the viewer's attention. I wasn't too impressed with this episode but what helped this episode was the fact that a forulaic revenge story was taken and given some new twists to keep the viewer guessing. I'm sure the majority of viewers thought they had the case solved once that crane came crashing through the building. However, I had trouble buying the final solution to that part of the episode. Remote control? Yeah, right.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Horatio didn't appear in the opening.

    • The character of Joey Salucci played by James Russo appeared in the episode Fade Out in season 4.

    • Goof: When Calleigh is attempting to save William Campbell from falling, she stands on her knees and one hand and holds him up with the other hand. William no doubt weighs more than Calleigh and if she had actually been holding him in this position he would have pulled her off.

    • Goof: When they show you how Emma Salucci died, you see two ATVs in the open beach. When they find the buried body, Calleigh says he was buried right in the spot where Emma died, and you can see a pier right above the body. That pier was NOT in the flashback with the ATVs.

    • CSI Ryan Wolfe is afraid of heights.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Calleigh: Any idea on cause of death?
      Dr.Price: Yes, actually. Looks like our killer planted an American flag.
      Calleigh: Excuse me?
      Dr.Price: Red eyes, white skin, blue lips. All consistent with strangulation.

    • Ryan: You know, I heard what happened with the wife today. Are you okay?
      Calleigh: Well, I guess if you heard what happened, then you know I probably don't want to talk about it.
      Ryan: Fair enough.

    • Eric: (to Mrs. Campbell) We're going to find the one who did this. Trust us.
      Mrs. Campbell: We trusted you once. I won't make the same mistake twice.

    • (to Natalia, before they open a toilet's trap)
      Ryan: Have you had lunch yet?

    • Calleigh: (as she stares at the evidence) Sometimes even a touch of evil can close the case.

    • Joey Salucci: This guy kills my only daughter. And all he gets is a...'watch where you're going next time'.
      (flashback of murder scene)
      Horatio: You're not the law, Joseph.
      Joey Salucci: You and I both know there's a big difference between the law and justice. He had to answer for what he did.
      Horatio: So do you.

    • Judge Dredd:

      When Horatio tells Joey Salucci, You're not the law, Joseph., he is acting on the slogan used by the British anti-hero Judge Joseph Dredd, who tells people, I am the law..
