CSI: Miami - Backstabbers
(S05E11) This was a follow-up to that absolutely ridiculous episode from a few weeks ago. Remember the one where the guy and his family got kidnapped, it was somehow tied to a terrorist plot, and then it ended with Horatio blowing up a truck with his sniper rifle? That one? Terrible episode. That sort of bugs me now because this one was pretty decent.
It picks up with the trial of the female terrorist who was behind the plot to blow up with nuclear power plot at Turkey Point. Her name is Sonya Barak if you recall and her sleazy lawyer was able to get her off on bail much to the dismay of the father of the family she had a hand in kidnapping. Thus led to a good old fashioned cat and mouse chase and a bunch of corny, and hilarious, one-liners from Horatio.
Turns out the terrorist cell that Sonya had worked for seemed to think that she had somehow flipped and was selling them out. Peter Kinkella (he was the father) somehow knew about this and posted her bail himself, in the hopes that her people would take her out. Didn't happen. Horatio was then forced to chase Sonya all over the city to bring in so she would be alive to stand the rest of her trial. She got away in the end and it would appear, as it stands right now, that this will end up being an on-going story line for the rest of the season. There has to be at least one more episode anyway, to wrap her story up. But I could see this stretching to more. Perhaps, as the season goes on, Horatio discovers an even larger terrorist plot?
The other big development in this episode was Wolfe. At first he was very anti-news (thanks to Erica), but he's definitely warmed up to the idea. Now he's even hamming it up for the documentary film crew that follows him around. Unfortunately, his playing to the camera caused him to compromise some blood evidence and the case almost wasn't made. He got a slap on the wrist from Calleigh, but Horatio was too busy to say anything. It'll be interesting to see how H reacts, if he does at all. I don't see him just letting Wolfe slip by that easily.
So that was sort of left out in the open, but it got me thinking. CSI: Miami has a lot of unresolved storylines just hanging out there...
Are we ever going to get some resolution to that outstanding warrant Horatio has in NY? Last we heard about it was during the CSI: NY cross-over episodes last season.
The NY thing had ties to Walter Resden and Jennifer Wilson too. Remember him? Creepy guy, killed Jennifer's parents? Some follow-up on that would be nice too. He's in jail now if I recall correctly.
What about Nick asking Valera on a date? Did they just forget about that?
Or Calleigh's relationship with Jake?
I think this is why I stick with this show. Despite how cheesy it is and how everyone complains about it, this is still one of the most commented on shows I write about for TV Squad. It may be corny but it keeps us involved because there's still so many unanswered plots. And Horatio's tilted head... guy has terrible posture.
