  • A bomber is causing panic in NY

    9.5
    A show that has made so many improvements from last season has become one of my favourite shows and this season finale showed a great end to the season when a bomber is causing panic in NY and Flack is badly injured and Mac trying to save him gets flashback to Beirut with a similar situation.It was good to see the bomber taunting the CSI's but I thought he gave himself up to easy to Mac and Stella.This was an exciting episode all the way through and so has the season.moreless

    This episode by far has got to be one of my favorites. Eddie Cahill is AMAZING in this episode. This episode makes me cry everytime I see it. The interaction between Mac and Flack when Mac says, "Stay with me Don..." is awsome! It has you on the edge of your seat the ENTIRE time. I love it. I have not a dry eye when this episode is over. It's so intense. I love the scene where Mac is with Flack in hospital. Stella comes in and says, "Ya know Mac he's on round the clock care we don't have to be here." I love how Mac stays with him anyway. It show how dedicated he is t o his team. It makes me teary just writing about it. It's that good.moreless
  • This is a legendary episode. I have been a major fan of CSI, particularly CSI:NY, and I know when something really special comes along - such as this episode.

    Every CSI:NY season finale so far - and I think the season 4 one will follow this trend too - has involved Mac (and sometimes one of the other main CSIs as well) getting into trouble. This just makes the finales completely mind-blowing because when the CSIs experience some personal drama (especially Mac, as his character is by far the most fantastically dramatic) everything suddenly goes mental. The storyline thickens; the plot becomes more sinister. This makes for some of the best episodes EVER in CSI:NY, and I look forward to them every single year. This episode is no exception. Action-packed and keeping you on the edge of your seat with suspense, this is a complete classic. A beautiful example of what TV can achieve - watch it now! And then again!moreless
  • Great Season finale

    9.4
    I loved the openning with Fack and Lindsay joking, we are not used to see them together and that one shows that they have a good relationship. Then the explosion. I really sufered for Flack!! I thought he was going to die!! Mac cleaning his hands only with the water and stop the bleeding...WAW! That guy knows everything!! I love Danny's concern when they found Lindsay. All the frustrated guy trying to be a marine during so many time and then trying to demonstrate that the country is not ready to stop another terrorist attack....GOOD IDEA!!



    I really liked that all the team works together but in a very different way than other chapters. It seems that all are touched very personally. Danny being all concerned about Lindsay even it seems that they personal space disappears in allthe screen time they share. Stella discovering MAc's injury...And the final scene with all the team in the hospital waiting for some news about Flack recovery. Things I found quite weird: Danny and MAc disabling the bomb....I didn't know they knew how to do that...

    Danny leaving with Lindsay at the end of the chapter: I am a huge DL fan but Flack is his bestfriend, and I think that the most normal thing would have been to be there for him but I guess he was worried about Lindsay and wnated to take care of her, maybe....



    Great chapter!!moreless
  • Flack , my cutie was injured badly.

    10
    When I saw the way mac sticked the two veins in his stomach, I was hoping that flack does not die....thank god, he is too cute to go...I luved him. Mac was great, if it wasn't for him, Flack would have died...The scene was a little scarry though but interesting...and looked real. I loved it. It actually made me cry.The blood oozing out of the vein...luckily, Mac managed to stop the bleeding..I agree with this episode though, that we are not ready for a bomb blast, like what Lessing says.Stella, Mac and the rest of the team being there for him was great. Shows how the team takes care of each other.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (9)

    • Goof: When Lindsay is running the explosion simulation the color key has Mac as blue, Flack as green and Smith as red. However in the simulation itself, Smith is orange, the falling beams are in red.

    • Goof: When Mac is taking pictures of Flack after his surgery Flack's mouth is slightly parted but when they show the photo that Mac took Flack's mouth is closed.

    • The building that explodes in this episode is the same one that was used on Angel during its first season, exiting the series with an explosion in that season's finale.

    • Goof: Mac refers to himself as Lieutenant while the papers Lessing has on him has his rank leaving from the military as Sergeant.

    • Goof: When the building blows up, you see some people being blasted sideways, sitting at tables like from a food place. Why would people be sitting calmly while an NYPD officer yelled to run?

    • Goof: The paperwork form the bomber had about Mac had a mistake in the title. It read "Enlisted Record and Report of Seperation." It should be "Separation."

    • Goof: Because episodes are often shot out of sequence, the cut on Lindsay's forehead keeps disappearing and reappearing.

    • In this episode, the CSIs are shown going through evidence, performing makeshift surgery, running investigations/crime scenes/bomb scares, AND disarming bombs. Real life CSIs are much more likely to specialize in one of the above; this approach was very unrealistically Hollywood.

    • When Mac received the phone call at the bomber's hideout, his cell phone said "New Text Message."

  • QUOTES (10)

  • NOTES (5)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The parts of this episode dealing with the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Lebanon are based on a real event. As Mac Taylor mentions, 241 American servicemen were killed that day, 220 of whom were Marines. The bombing was a suicide attack involving a truck packed with explosives. The perpetrators are still unknown, but many people have suspected Hezbollah.
