CSI: Miami: Kill Switch
(S05E23) "I wear make-up now." -Wolfe
Great episode! Solid case, plenty of tense moments, and what turned out to be a really good (slightly cheesy) performance from Jonathan Togo.
The big question on everyone's mind? Wolfe ain't going anywhere. Looks like we're only getting one episode revolving around his brief flirtation with being a TV news "special correspondent," and one was more than enough. It was thoroughly enjoyable but man, was it weird to see him doing something so different or what? It definitely felt like he was selling out his former colleagues by busting out some of the tricks of the trade on live TV, but at least he came to his senses by the end of the hour.
The case the team was up against was very well laid out and included some fairly decent twists, although the outcome was still pretty predictable. I loved that fact that Chris Carmack guest-starred too. Whenever I see him all I can think of is, "Welcome to the O.C. bitch!"
At this point, talking about the case is pretty inconsequential because with only one episode to go (next week is the season five finale), all our season story arcs are starting to wrap up. First off is the pseudo-romance that's started to develop between Calleigh and Delko. It definitely feels like it may be going somewhere and we got a sense of how Delko feels when we saw his reaction to Calleigh having a phone conversation with Jake. If I recall correctly, we haven't seen him since the episode when Natalia's ex Nick Townsend (Rob Estes) was murdered. Anyway, Delko seemed jealous, so it'll be interesting to see if he pursues what he feels in the finale next week.
OK, back to Wolfe. As I said, it was a little cheesy near the end. Especially with the whole "I was born to be a cop" montage. It was cool to see some of the old scenes from previous episodes, but yeah... cheesy. I loved how he came to Horatio at the end though. That was a solid move to promise his presence in court whenever any of his old cases were re-opened. Notice how he mentioned that it didn't matter if he never got his job back too? Now that he quit the news station gig, what's he going to do for income?
Overall, very enjoyable and pretty much exactly what I'd expect from CSI: Miami during sweeps. Not perfect, but definitely worth watching. I suppose there's a reason why this show is the number one program in the world (crazy... I know). Everyone can enjoy it though. 6 out of 7.
