Recap: "Divorce Party"

This episode of CSI: Miami opens with a lighter tone and ends with the heaviest of subjects. And Kyle and Julia are back - is it to stay this time? "Welcome to Amy's divorce party!" Glen Wagner declares. The opening is set to the tune of Beyonce's "Single Ladies", as Amy Lansing gets unmarried in this mock ceremony, where she promises to live and love life without her ex. Everything is all fun and games until during the ceremony, her ex Roger falls through the ceiling of the gazebo with a rope around his neck. Calleigh questions Glen Wagner, Amy's best friend, when a board from the gazebo falls on Dr. Price. She's hurt, but it allows her to walk away before the whole structure comes crashing down around her. Calleigh finds a 20-foot long piece of fishing wire attached to the mechanism that triggered the trap door in the roof that Roger fell through. Meanwhile, Julia and Kyle are back, and Kyle's behind the wheel, driving as fast as he can to get his mom (who is clearly under the influence of something) to an interview. Kyle gets pulled over and Julia's passed out. When Horatio talks to them in the station, she says she can take care of him, and Horatio offers to help her. Horatio "hires" Kyle as an intern to help out Dr. Price in the morgue, presumably so he can see the consequences of his reckless actions, as his first victim died in a car crash. Glen's DNA is found on the fishing wire, but he says while he did pull the cord, it was intended for an effigy hanging and that someone must have replaced the dummy with the real thing. Kyle helps out Dr. Price with Roger's autopsy, and Eric is in the lab where Travers determines Roger was chloroformed before he was hung. Ryan and another lab tech are looking at a compilation of pics from the party to see if anything is out of place. The closest thing found is the Lansing's son, Heath. Tripp and Natalia question him, and he says he was disgusted by his mom's party and felt bad for his dad. He claimed he didn't know where his dad worked - that it was for the government and that the whole thing was always very secretive. Via the IRS, Tripp and Calleigh track Roger's business to a makeshift day-trading office. They also track down Roger's business partner, Trent Faber, to question him. Instead, they find Trent's wife (played by The O.C.'s Kelly Rowen) and daughter (played by Friday Night Lights ' Aimee Teegarden). They use Katherine Faber's phone to call her husband, but instead, Kyle picks up the phone in the morgue. Eventually everyone puts two and two together, discovering the dead man was leading a double life: Trent is really Roger. Calleigh implies to Mrs. Faber that she may have had motive to kill him if she found out about his double life. She says they found plant fertilizer on his noose. (She had been gardening when they approached her house looking for Trent.) Eric is in the other room questioning Amy Lansing for the same reasons. To Read The Complete Recap Click Here .

Recap: "Sink or Swim"

In this episode of CSI: Miami , Diddy's back (oh joy), Eric's in trouble, and Calleigh and Eric's budding relationship is almost foiled (again). Everyone's gathered on the boat of "Miami's most famous defense attorney" (guest star Sean "Diddy" Combs) when a man comes aboard and opens fire into the sky above the guests. It's a robbery, and Derek's fiancee Nadine is shot and killed in the moment of escape. The CSIs arrive on the scene and begin by fingerprinting everyone on the boat to see where the gunshot came from. They think the robbers, who escaped on another boat, may have had help. Natalia and Ryan track down the abandoned getaway boat and find someone else fixing it up. The jewelry from the robbery is still on board and all that's missing is Derek's laptop, which was also stolen. Horatio informs Eric that the city has revoked his protection detail due to his real identity as the son of a Russian mob member and a non-American citizen. Meanwhile, Calleigh is helping Derek track down his laptop via a device embedded in it. When they manage to tap into his home computer from the lab, which leads them to the laptop. (Their fancy machinery lost me somewhere along the way.) Yolena is back this week and offers to take a case from some unidentified man that works for Alexander Sharova, who assigns her to take out Eric. Sharova found out Eric was looking into him and orders the hit. Being a PI doesn't pay, she says. However, Yolena then takes this information back to Horatio and tells him Eric has a target on his back. Horatio appears in the back seat of the car of Alexander Sharova. Horatio takes him to meet Eric, who informs him his birth certificate has his name on it, but he says he can't remove the hit on him. Alexander's "I owe you nothing" attitude angers Eric, who punches him, leaving behind a tooth. Horatio keeps it for evidence. To Read The Complete Recap Click here .

Recap: "Presumed Guilty"

In this week's episode of CSI: Miami, blood bugs abound, a camera phone comes to the rescue and Diddy's on defense. Calleigh, Natalia and Eric are called as witnesses at a trial for Alphonso Reyes and Diddy makes his appearance as the defense lawyer, Derek Powell. They all testify to finding the victim's body in the locker room of the country club where she was strangled, and they found Reyes' DNA on the victim's body. Horatio is outside the courtroom talking to the victim's father while the defendant is found guilty of the murder. Even six weeks after the killing, Lindsay Garland's body is still in the morgue and Dr. Price unzips her body bag to find tons of bugs in it. As Horatio says, "this changes everything." But why, we do not yet know. It was determined they were blood flies and the eggs hatched inside the bag, which means she was killed outdoors and not in the locker room because these bugs only live in tropical places. Eric and Ryan go to the country club locker room where the victim was found to look for more evidence. Horatio informs the defense lawyer that Reyes may be innocent because the victim was not in fact killed in the locker room. Powell says he was just building his case before he appealed and that he has a witness named Tammy Witten. Tammy is in the hospital after having overdosed on antidepressants, but she tells Natalia she saw a car on the day of the killing sideswipe the wall near the country club and that Lindsey was a passenger in the car. She says she told the lawyer about it and that he didn't believe her story. For Full Recap Click Here .

Episode Recap: "Smoke Gets in Your CSIs"

In this episode of CSI: Miami , Calleigh takes one for the team and almost loses her life, Eric professes his love and the CSIs track down a heroin addict's killer. Wolfe and Calleigh are called to a house when a neighbor smells something rotting for days. There's a body in the attic and apparently someone's not done with it yet as they come back and start shooting at Calleigh and Wolfe through the ceiling. The shooter then sets the house on fire with them locked in the attic They hear what appears to be a bomb explode (it later turns out to be the microwave ignition of an aerosol can) and Calleigh breaks through the floor to get out. She makes Wolfe take the body with them as it's the only evidence they've got at this point. Horatio and Eric find a business card at the scene with the name Jeff Peralta on it. Jeff says he was at the house because he was thinking about buying it, as it was a foreclosure he could get for a good price. He said he wasn't supposed to go inside but felt it was worth breaking the law to see if the house was worth the price. Both he and his wife give DNA samples just in case. Dr. Price determines the time of death as the day prior and a gunshot wound as the cause of death. She also finds track marks hidden between the corpse's toes so they think perhaps it could have been a drug deal gone bad. A DNA test on some fingernail scrapings on the victim reveals the name Colin Astor. Colin says he met the dead guy at a pickup game last week. In the midst of questioning, Calleigh starts coughing and then stops breathing. Eric has them call for an ambulance and when she and Delko arrive at the hospital, former CSI Alexx Woods (Khandi Alexander) is the doctor on call who handles her severe case of smoke inhalation. Horatio waits in the hall and Alexx takes the dramatic long walk down the hall to tell him of Calleigh's fate. Eric, meanwhile, looks on in horror as they try and save her. Alexx tells Horatio to "get him now," as Calleigh is only breathing with the help of machines and nitric oxide, which can't last for long. "I can't imagine going to work without you. I can't imagine living my life without you," Eric tells Calleigh. So far this episode is more about the characters' personal lives than the case at hand. The drama of Calleigh's smoke inhalation trauma has taken up a good portion of the first half. For Full Recap Read Here

Recap: "And They're Offed"

In this episode of CSI: Miami , all eyes are on the track as a murder goes down and all bets are off as to who's the killer. Calleigh and Eric inch closer to a possible resolution to the "will they or won't they" question. The episode opens to reveal a man behind glass in his luxury suite watching his horse, Backdraft, through binoculars. Poor Robert Banyon is shot from behind right before the race ends. "So what have we got besides a killer view?" Calleigh asks Eric as they begin to collect the evidence from the luxury box. The only thing out of place is a box of truffles, Calleigh's favorite, which apparently can't be found in Miami. The truffles are tracked to Chicago and the company is owned by a man named Wayne Tully - who happens to be in town. When questioned, he says he went there to try to buy shares in Banyon's stable. He also happened to check a gun into his flight to Miami which he says was for protection. A boy walks up to the CSIs outside of the racetrack and he has Wolfe's name and number in his pocket. The boy's father is a friend of Wolfe's and is also a vet at the track. He failed to pick up his son after school. The scene cuts to an intense fight involving Wolfe and two men at a house. Horatio comes in the nick of time and sees a man lying bloody on the ground. He has a Russian mob tattoo on his shoulder and when Horatio calls him on it, the man slits his own throat. The other man is Wolfe's friend, Mark Gantry who Wolfe says called him because he was in trouble, but that he didn't know why. Dr. Price determines that Banyon was killed by a captive bolt gun which is normally used to put down livestock. They are supposed to destroy a horse's brain stem so the heart keeps beating and are thus inhumane. The CSIs think maybe someone didn't like the way Banyon treated his animals. Calleigh and Eric approach his horse trainer for questioning and Eric finds a towel wrapped bolt gun in some feed. They take the trainer into the station. For Full Recap Read Here

Episode 12 Recap: "Head Case"

On this episode of CSI: Miami , a family is murdered and the CSIs seek to determine whether the guy who claims to have had amnesia did in fact commit the crimes. Behind the scenes, Eric and Calleigh have a moment and try to determine what's really going on between them. A guy is staggering down the middle of a busy road covered in blood. Cars swerve to miss him and a policeman eventually pulls him off the road. The CSIs flock to the scene and the guy claims not to know his name. However, his tox screen is negative and there are no matching prints or DNA in APHUS. The blood on him was fresh but they couldn't find any crime scenes in the vicinity. But then they discover he has the blood of three people on him - a father, mother and daughter that are not related to him. They trace the blood to the Crawford family and get to their family home to find a guy there using their pool to impress a girl. He says when he arrived in the morning to drop off some legal documents the family was pulling away in a car. Mitch Crawford was a financial advisor who'd taken his clients money and many were suing him. Meanwhile, Eric tries to coax the memories from the guy with amnesia who then remembers hearing school children on a bus. Based on that memory, they track down the scene of the Crawford murders and find evidence that might tie Doug Benson, amnesia guy, to the crimes. Eric and Calleigh take Doug to a memory loss specialist, but images of the murders don't jog anything at first. However, he then remembers part of the murder, specifically seeing the knife in Mitch's chest and pulling it out. A background check revealed he had a father that was murdered with a knife, as well. He was a child and he also suffered amnesia at that time, so they don't know which murder he was remembering. Not believing the story, Wolfe takes to the lab to prove that Benson committed the murders and was lucid when he did it. Horatio approaches a Mr. Sapin at his club who apparently had it out a few days prior with Mitch Crawford over his money that he had lost. Back in the jail, Doug confesses to another detainee that he killed three people and Calleigh hears it, but Doug claims he just said it to get the guy off his back and everyone thinks he did it anyway. Wolfe finds out that the boot print he found at the murder scene could have been military, but most likely would have been 6 feet tall, which didn't match Doug's description. The Crawford's son Logan, who was at military school, admits to having had snuck home to see his dad and to have seen Doug killing his family. He also mentioned the killer was wearing a red hat. Upon questioning, Doug says he'll do the time if he did the murder, but didn't want to remember it if that were the case. For full Recap Read here

Episode 11 Recap: "Tipping Point"

In this episode of CSI: Miami , the crew works to make the streets safer from a gang and find the killer of a man who was trying to help the gang members live a more fulfilling life. The episode opens to show a man buried alive in a wooden box at a construction site. There was a machine breaking ground with a giant earth drill when it hits the man in the box, in a most graphical manner. The foreman had heard screaming but couldn't stop the drill in time. Apparently according to the ME, the victim had been shot as well. There was a cardio messenger device in the victim's pocket, and it linked his pacemaker to a EKG tracking website. Through that tracking device, the victim is identified as Michael Olvara. His blood pressure had dropped significantly at 8am which was probably when he'd been shot. Mike, also known as "the Rev" helped kids stay away from gangs through his St. Jude's house for children. The CSIs located a girl named Yolanda Ramos who witnessed the gunshot of "the Rev", but she had been really afraid to talk to them for fear of being hunted down herself. She caved when she was offered a reward. She tells them where the shooting happened. Eric finds a medallion on the street at the primary crime scene — a St. Jude necklace. St. Jude is the patron saint of lost causes. Calleigh also finds a bullet in the base of a nearby tree. It matches another bullet recovered at a drug bust ten years ago which they tracked to Hector Salazar, former head of the Los Crameos Gang. Gloria Nunez lived in an apartment in the vicinity of the gunshot of "the Rev." Shouting had been heard from her apartment and reported around the same time, so they figured she may have heard something. She said she was on the phone with the funeral home, arguing about the cost of her daughter's burial who'd been shot walking home from school three weeks ago. In the lab, they find some blood on the St. Jude necklace that belongs to Rafael Vargas. Wolfe and Horatio show up at Vargas' place with a warrant and try to pin him from the murder, since they figured the reverend was stealing his gang recruits. Menawhile, there's a note on Horatio's vehicle that tells him where to go to find Crameos. Horatio and Eric head to a warehouse where they find a security guard that had been recently jumped. Three guys had just come and taken some explosives, and one of them was Hector Salazar. For full Recap Read here

Meanwhile, they pull photos from Banyon's binocular camera. There's a shot of the jockey on Backdraft using an electric horse prod, which is illegal. They approach the jockey that rode Backdraft and she said that getting the horse to speed up wasn't about getting Banyon to keep his eyes on the race but rather about winning.

getting worst and worst

This CSI-Show is getting more and more ridiculous. They are all dressed like supermodels, the pathologist with the naked back-top f.e., in one episode they all were wearing something pink…hallo???!!! Its Miami, warm and humid, and everyone is wearing a wrinkle free suite, or a leather jacket??? What’s with the high heel-stilettos on the bloody crime scene? Come on now!!! Nothing seems real, not even the talks they have with each other. Horatio never speaks in a normal voice or real sentences for that matter… and the technology is all too much and all too fake.
