Drug lord Antonio Riaz is released in Rio after the evidence about his murder on Eric's sister Marisol during her wedding with Horatio is dismissed because the witnesses are in a US protection program. Horatio's brother Ray Caine is involved in drugs again, precisely in Riaz's 'favella' (slum) gang, but found left bleeding to death, just able to urge saving his son, Raymond Jr., who becomes a courier back to Miami. Meanwhile the 'headless' home front must handle the case of Carl Silvers, who found and/or killed his wife drowning in her own blood, and is believed guilty by his stepson Scott Satlin.

Horatio's Brain is Cooked!
16 July 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I used to be a regular watcher of CSI Miami, despite the fact that I labeled as a non-serious "fake" police series. After seeing that episode, I had no doubt it is gained the "trash" status. Well, Horatio decides to go rogue and chase his nemesis Riaz (isn't that a Spanish name and not a Portuguese one?) in Rio de Janeiro.

First, although our justice department is a complete wreck, we do not import criminals to set them loose here. They have fled to Brazil on their own to escape prison on our former loose extradition laws, but we don't get them from outside our borders so they can create havoc here. In specific a blue-collar criminal that was in an American prison! And I seriously doubt the US justice department would allow that extradition.

Second, haven't they shot the episode in Rio actually? Haven't they noticed that it is an extremely hot city? Horatio Caine's brain would be cooked after 1 hour walking in the city streets under the harsh Rio sun wearing that dark colored suit. Well, that would explain his death wish when he decided to go up the hill and enter the "favela". That was laughable. A little "favela" boy that spoke perfect English? They barely speak good Portuguese! Third, Horatio look as "gringo" as one can, he would have been mugged and assaulted (not necessarily in this order) the moment he stepped out of the airport. So how he could approach the "favela" remains a big mystery! This episode marked the turning point in the series, in which the following episodes were as bad as they could be!
