Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • Danny and Sheldon go deep beneath the Hudson River to investigate the death of a SCUBA diver whose body was found by boat racers. The investigation reveals that the death maybe tied to something even bigger and more dangerous than exploring the Hudson.moreless

    CSI: NY continues to deliver it's well written and entertaining episdoes with this terrific installment. The scenes of Danny and Sheldon are diving on the Red Bird subway cars at the bottom of the Hudson River are very realistic looking and even a little scary which is a high point of this episode. Another reason why the episode works so well is because it tricks the viewer into guessing where the story is going and then takes a huge and unexpected turn to a fantastic climax. I hope CSI: NY can keep up the good work for the season.moreless
  • good episode...

    The team investigates the death of a diver that turned up in the water. It leads to a terrorist attack which they stop. I liked the story in this episode. It was unique and pretty well done. I thought the whole part when the investigator was trapped under water with his tank was pointless. It added nothing to the character. I liked how Danny saved him, but it still seemed pretty pointless to me. I liked how Mac had to change his number because of the caller. It seems like they're setting something up for the future. Overall, good episode. Nothing great, but not that bad.moreless
  • Amazing

    This episode made my heart beat really really fast. Talk about a cardio work out. I felt like I was there. I could feel the tension as Sheldon and Danny were in the water. I felt sorry for Lindsay cos she was watching and there was nothing she could do. I would hate to be in that position. I think that this is one of those episodes that shows how strongly they are connected. Danny was fantastic helping Sheldon out. This programme seems to go from ok to good to great ... How much further can it possibly get to. Looking forward to next weeks.moreless
  • This was a very well written episode and the plot was cleverly written.

    I was on the edge of my seat throughout this episode because the plot just kept on twisting around and you really had to concentrate to keep up with it. Even though the episode was quite fast paced it was good to watch. The fake gold coins were a brilliant twist and the part at the end where they searched the apartment and realised they were building a bomb was very exciting. The race to find the bomb in time before it went off was exciting if a little predictable that they were going to find it in time and stop it from going off and hurting anyone. Still, it was a good episode and I just hope that they can carry on writing good episodes like this one for the rest of the season.moreless
  • Great ending and story

    I personally found this a bit anti-climatic after the season opener. it was a good story, great ending and good bit of history but it seemed a bit tooo easy. they kept going through the easy way to get to the each criminal.

    it seemed obvious from the start who would kill him, one of his instructee's and they didn't bring in any outside suspects. i thought this was a weak point of the story line

    secondly it was very sterotypical. the foreign ones being the killers, i was upset they couldn't of thought up a better way of why they died.

    the coin thing is also the same as csi: las vegas episode i once saw.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (10)

    • Hawkes keeps his eyes open the whole time even without the mask as Danny is saving him. It is a bit shocking since the East River is a rather polluted one.

    • Danny's line at the end of the episode: Hey, hey, all in a day's work. You'd do the same for me, you know? is reminiscent of Mac's line in the previous episode: For some, the greatest sin is to turn away and do nothing.

    • Danny mentions Louie when he's telling Hawkes about going fishing on the harbour; however, he doesn't clarify if he is dead or alive which remains unsolved ever since 2x20 Run silent run deep.

    • Stella can be seen wearing glasses in front of the computer for the first time.

    • Mac has changed his phone extension because of the 333 caller.

    • Goof: When Hawkes is sitting in the ambulance getting bandaged up, after Flack came up to them, you can see the paramedics wrapping Hawkes arm against his chest in a bandage. It flashes back to Flack and then when it goes back to Hawkes there is no bandage around his arm holding it against his chest. His arm is resting on his lap.

    • Goof:

      Detective Stella Bonasera: (to Detective Lindsay Monroe) I'll bet you never had a chance to do an autopsy on a starfish in Montana.

      Det. Bonasera should be familiar enough with routine to know that the postmortem examination of an animal is a necropsy, not an autopsy.

    • The conversation between Flack and Danny about giving back Staten Island is ironic considering Carmine Giovinazzo grew up on Staten Island.

    • Sid can't swim.

    • Lindsay has never necropsied on starfish before.

      A necropsy is an autopsy on an animal.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Stella: Where's the damn target?

    • Danny: (To Hawkes) Hey, hey, all in a day's work. You'd do the same for me, you know?

    • Flack: What happened down there? I got a call from dispatch saying there was some kind of problem. I got here as fast as I could.
      Danny: Some methane bubbles caused an explosion, Hawkes got caught underneath the ship's mast.
      Flack: Some guy would do anything for an early retirement.

    • Danny: So is it true what they say?
      Hawkes: What's that?
      Danny: Did your life pass right before your eyes?
      Hawkes: I could only think of one thing the whole time I was down there.
      Danny: What? Was it your first kiss?
      Hawkes: Don't make me laugh.
      Danny: What?
      Hawkes: Sid Hammerback. I was in his lab, lying on an autopsy table, Sid was standing over me firing up the bone spreader.
      Danny: That's morbid.

    • Danny: Let's look at the bright side, we don't have to worry about sharks.

    • Danny: My mother was so pissed off, she didn't talk to me for a week... it was kind of a peaceful week !

    • Flack: Our vic's this way. Floater, showed up in the middle of the sailboat race between New York and New Jersey.
      Danny: I read about that. It's a reenactment of a race that happened back in the 1,600s.
      Mac: Yeah. Legend has it the winner got possession of Staten Island.
      Flack: Is it too late to give it back?
      Danny: Yeah, very funny Flack!

    • Hawkes: Which doesn't tell us what they were doing down there in the first place.
      Sid: Beats me. I don't even swim.

    • Lindsay: You know, he's lucky he had you down there, Danny.
      Danny: Stop goofing off, we got work to do.

    • Mac: How does a guy with a full tank of oxygen and a hydrogen pump suffocate?

    • Flack: (Looking at picture) Maybe we should split the list.
      Stella: (Rolls her eyes) Why, so you can get all the single women?

    • Danny: Yeah well, screw the fish and provide us with a crime scene.

    • Stella: I don't imagine you autopsied too many starfish in Montana.
      Lindsay: This would be my first.
