Finding The Kidnap Victim & Soap Opera In The CSI Office
ccthemovieman-1 from United States
26 December 2006
Some bimbo sipping her cocktail at an outdoor restaurant table gets a
call on her cellphone from a desperate woman. She almost hangs up but
stays on and hears this woman pleading for help, asking "Mitch" to save
here. She obviously dialed the wrong number but at least the bimbo -
who is shown to be really shallow - does the right thing by going to a
nearby policeman. "Lt. Horatio Caine" (David Caruso) conveniently is
nearby and he takes the phone from her and hears a man threatening the
woman followed by a shouts from a male and then a gunshot.
The CSI quickly finds out who she was really calling. (It's a little
too quick for believability considering all the numbers involved.) They
discover that "Mitch" is her husband she was trying to call him. He
knows about the kidnapping because he'd received a ransom and death
threat if he called the cops. He's frantic, but cooperates with Lt.
The rest is the usual: every suspect they have who looks like the
guilty party only leads them to the next step. This is typical for the
CSI shows where you usually don't see the real killer until the end.
Anyway, nothing special but a decent show. A quick sidebar as "Ryan
Wolfe" (Jonathan Togo) trying to date "Natalia" (Evan LaRue Callahan).
She was Eric Delko's (Adam Rodriguez) former girlfriend who still,
obviously, has feelings for the latter. It's all very soap opera stuff
but the writers like to fit this kind of stuff in every show.
