Las Vegas's retired police commissioner Duke Rittle was tortured to death after an 'exclusive' party. The ex-con who drove him is found murdered in the car's trunk, but not the last on Grissom's trail. Rittle's young daughter Sasha is missing and the suspect, a socialite chameleon, is seen on a private flight to Miami. Grissom sends Catherine there. Luckily Horatio takes brilliant charge, realizing it's the MO of a Florida serial killer of socialite couples, who spared the girl but eliminated all other witnesses and clearly isn't done yet, even sets a trap for the police.

Did You Know?


The CBS network and CSI producers decided to create the spin-off series CSI: Miami (2002) (and later CSI: NY (2004)) because they wanted to beat other potential CSI copycat shows to the punch. See more »


When figuring out what the criminal's "fruity scent" is caused from, Grissom tells Katherine that it's because of Diabetic Ketoacetosis, which is treated with Novolin Insulin. This, however, cannot be the case since Ketoacetosis is, in fact, a very debilitating complication that can result from diabetes, which would either require extensive hospitalization or, in less severe cases, a treatment that would last, at most, a single day. Not only that, but Novolin Insulin isn't a specific type of insulin, it's a genetically similar to human insulin created by Squibb-Novo, making it a brand name instead of a treatment, and would, more than likely, be a constant running medication instead of just for the one condition.

I'd like to let people know, that, even though it said Eric Szmanda's name in the credits, he wasn't on the episode of Cross-Jurisdictions. So, technically it shouldn't be on his IMDb profile. Just to let you guys know. I liked the episode, but when it says who's on there, they should actually have the people on there. Like Eric Szmanda, for instance. He wasn't on there, even though it said his name in the credits. But, since it was the first show that helped develop CSI:Miami, I enjoyed it. And Rory Cochrane was more excited and such, but when the other seasons came around, he didn't seem so happy with the position he was in. They could've also chosen a different person to play Horatio Caine, because, from what I understand, David Caruso re-writes his script to his satisfaction. I think it's stupid and dumb. The writers went through all the trouble in putting together a script, only to have David Caruso ruin it. Plus, some of the words he uses for the show aren't very intelligent.
