When Ryan and Alex try fuming Rachel Hemming's corps in her home looking for fingerprints, a fire starts, actually resulting from a short-circuited fan, which torches everything when it reaches the meth lab. Horatio suspects the landlord Jeremy Broyles, who has three prior drug-related convictions. On Heming's partially burned corps Eric finds a melted bug and a partial print of her brother Zach, who claims he came from Ohio to get her out of the crime life but just left when she refused. The bug's serial number leads to FBI agent Mike Farallon, who confirms she became his informant to escape a dealer conviction; Mike's wife Linda knew he slept around, as his former colleague Natalia Boa Vista, who recontacts the one he did three years ago before she came to CSI. Rachel was pregnant, actually from Zach... Written by KGF Vissers

Drug Dealers, Informants & Courrupt Agents
7 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young woman acting as an undercover agent (a "confidential informant") dealing meth is found dead. It appears she died falling on a glass coffee table and a wine glass punctured her carotid artery.

The CSI investigation leads to the FBI man working with her. Natalie used to work with the guy and knows what a womanizer he was, so he is prime suspect. Why is it CSI shows almost aways make other crime agencies, along with the government agencies, out as the bad guys? The answer is politics. For some reason, those left-of-center, the writers of this show and most others on TV, don't like cops or anyone in authority. Even in this episode, when someone mentions the FBI guy is a suspect, "Ryan Wolfe," (Jonathan Togo) is pleased. I rest my case.

The most interesting part of this episode is the beginning where Wolfe and ME "Alex Woods" (Khandi Alexander) attempt to use a fuming tent to see if they can get any fingerprints on the dead woman's body. While in the process of doing this, an electrical fire starts in the room and our two CSI people run for their lives. A meth lab, with its ammonia fumes, makes the fire burst out rapidly. They escape and are unharmed and they, along with the rest of crew, then try to backtrack and find out why this woman was killed, and by whom.

The story winds up divided between those two pursuits: find the killer and expose the corrupt FBI agent and his boss, "Glenn Cole" (Mark Ralston), who is always shown as an enemy of the series star, "Horatio Caine" (David Caruso).

Included in this episode is one of the more bizarre-looking females I've ever seen on this show: a past informant named "Jane" played by the exotic Tia Texada.
