Storyline

Manny Ortega falls to from a skyscraper. When the new (post-Woods) MPD pathologist arrives and thinks Ortega is still breathing, the CSI team is shot at, she instantly killed and replaced by Dr. Thomas Wellner. At the apartment he fell from a blood stain is found from ATF agent Evan Caldwell, who claims Manny was a rogue informer on illegal ammo trade. Ammo supplier Brad Gower claims to hand-check every bullet under a lucrative 'discrete' deal with Uncle Sam, but it turns out to be an illegal, explosive type. After his confessions he too is shot. Caldwell provides Manny's client list, which includes Julia's new husband Ron Saris, so Horatio convinces her to take their disappointed son Kyle in safety abroad, but he neglected one revenge warning too many.

Goofs

About 1/2 way through the episode, Calleigh discovers the rounds used earlier were made in 1969, from a former Soviet Bloc country, and used black powder. She claims that it is illegal to sell old ammunition from those countries. In truth, no modern firearm ammunition (post 1900) would ever have been made with black powder, because it will not cycle modern semi-automatic guns reliably, as well as being so dirty that it would foul up any semi-auto very quickly, rendering it useless. Also, it is quite legal to import old (or new) ammunition from former Soviet Bloc countries, and can be purchased currently in many places. See more »

They Really Know How To Keep Us Viewers Ready For The Next Season!
10 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh, man, the writers of this show just love to leave their viewers up in the air with something ultra-dramatic in the final episode, making us wait anxiously for the new season to find out what happened.

That is really the case here as we last see Horatio gunned down, possibly dead (we know that won't happen) and CSI's Ryan Wolfe and perhaps Horatio's son Kyle involved! (I doubt that, too...but it does make you say, "Are you kidding me?) As one who now watches this show just on DVDs, I would I have to wait a full year to find out what happened. That is the only bad part of watching these commercial-free DVD episodes. (However, the good news - sort of - is that I can cheat and see the IMDb summary of the first episode of the seventh season, which explains what the deal is above.)

Whatever. At any rate, there is plenty of gunfire here in this final episode of the sixth season. One tip for those new to CSI: when you see the murderer apprehended with 19 minutes left in the CSI programs, be assured something will happen to him, usually not pleasant. Then, the writers can milk another 18.9 minutes out of the episode as CSI tries to figure out who killed the killer! As usual, the beginning is terrific, a real attention-getter. Along the way of finding out who killed a man who just crashed through a window many stories up and landed on the concrete below, we get another killing within minutes as the new medical examiner is killed while examining the man who fell to his death.

Wait a minute.....new medical examiner? Did I miss something? What happened to "Alexx?" I know her son got in trouble in an episode two weeks ago, but there was no talk of her resigning. Someone should at least explain Khandi Alexander's absence. This is ridiculous! Note: There were only 21 episodes in this season. What gives with that? Usually, there are about 24. Boy, fans of this show got short-changed this year.
