Celebrity Nikki Beck is found electrocuted by a tan-lamp -but she sprayed- in her bath during a fancy party. She was redressed by her manager. Rivaling colleague, April Goodwin, and personal assistant, Melinda Carson, blame each other for Nikki's undigested designer drugs. These were traced to research Professor Colin Danville, stolen from him by the Salvadorian drug and people trader, Dario Sanez.

Eric is reluctant to attend his terminal sister Marisol's wedding to Horatio. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


In the opening death scene, the UV tanning lamp is in the bathtub with the victim, clearly still powered. Ryan comments that the GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) should have tripped. Calleigh replies that it did, but not fast enough. The GFCI outlet is shown in its normal (untripped) condition. When tripped, the red RESET button clearly pops out. In addition, the GFCI will trip within 1/60th of a second to prevent just this type of mishap. Bath salts added to the water would tend to conduct electricity around the victim, lessening the effect.

Shooter: [a man with a gun is talking to someone over the phone. He's got his sights set on Horatio's back and is just awaiting the go-ahead from the person on the other end of the line] I've got a clear shot. I can get the hit and get away clean. I've got it all lined up. Just give me the OK.

More Than One Shock!
27 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some stuck-up spoiled heiress (an obvious takeoff on Paris Hilton except this bimbo has a big chest and not much of a face) is killed and found lying in the bathtub at a party. Suspects are many: her rival babe in the publicity world, her publicist and a couple of other awful people. All of these pretty people are extremely shallow and good-looking, the kind featured much of the time on this show.

The killing may or may not be what it first looks like so the crime lab heroes have to find out what really transpired here and the usual complications arrive.

In a secondary story, Horatio helps two sisters get re-united and out of a slave-type arrangement. Drug dealers kidnap the El Salvador women and have them work for them. There's a feel-good ending to that one which leads to the finale of Horatio walking to the courthouse to be married to Marisol, with Delko along. However, we see a sniper zooming in on Horatio's back......with the "to be continued"

Earlier, in a strange dialog scene, Caine enters a room in the lab where Delko is working and says, "Hey,Eric, I am marrying your sister this afternoon." "Oh? "She would like it if you were there." "I'll think about it."
