While Dade University students, Brandon Fox and Jessica Taylor, make love in the car, it catches fire. She's found dead next to it, he's badly wounded and found in a ditch a few yards further. A saboteur had cut the break fluid. Eric finds fingerprints of car thief and mechanic Andrew Hillman, Brandon's rival for Jessica. Carbon monoxide levels imply a double suicide attempt. Jessica was deep in debt with Keith Reynolds's company. A vision of Eric's late mentor, Tim Speedle, leads to the discovery of the tube and rug used to murder them, with loan-shark Gary Hardwick's fingerprints. Tim's credit card was reactivated two weeks earlier. Then a shot eliminates a suspect. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Calleigh mentions that minute of angle is "the amount the path of the bullet was altered by the wind." This is not a correct definition. Minute of angle (MOA) is a unit of measurement. Its true meaning is 1/60 of 1 degree, which equates to 1.047 inches at 100yds. Shooters use MOA as a measurement for things like bullet drop or what she is describing, called wind drift. Wind drift could be measured in MOA but is not defined as MOA.

Saying that there was a 5MOA drift, would only work if the distance of the shot was known because the MOA is based on the range. 5MOA at 100yds would be approximately 5 inches, while 5MOA at 500 yards would be approximately 25 inches. So at the point in the investigation they would not be able to ascertain how much wind drift there was, or how to measure it in MOA. They could only tell that there was wind drift, but they do not have all the parts of the equation to work out the amount because a 20MPH wind would only push a .30 caliber bullet 1.5 inches at 100 yards, which would only be 1.5MOA.

In order for there to be a 5MOA wind drift to the flight path of the bullet the shooter would have needed to be 310 from his target, with a full value 20MPH wind. If the wind was quartering, the distance would be closer to 425 yards.

When they are on the boat, Calleigh and Eric mention that the boat would have been 100 yards off the campus, meaning that the equation that they use is impossible, unless the wind was closer to 95MPH, which would be the only way to get a 5" (or 5MOA) wind drift at 100 yards with a .30 caliber round.

A Fond Remembrance Of An Old Pal: 'Tim Speedle'
25 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two things were shocking in this episode and the writers made sure we weren't seeing things because they repeated them several times. The first was seeing an old pal, "Tim Speedle," back from the dead (in "Eric Delko's" mind) and the second was seeing a guy fondle a girl's breast. Yeah, she had clothes but it was still startling enough for CSI to show the scene three times. Boy, they keep "pushing the envelope" on television, don't they?

The parts with "Speedo" were a little far out but still very cool and very sad, at the same time. Rory Cochrane played that guy, a regular CSI member the first three seasons, before being killed, shot to death by some thug. Cochrane wanted off the show, and so they literally eliminated his character.

Nobody took Tim Speedle's death harder than Delko, who was best-buddies with his CSI comrade. Tim and Eric would trade friendly insults with each other most episodes and both were fun to watch. They made a great team. I can't say the sometimes-annoying "Ryan Wolfe" (Jonathan Togo), who replaced Speedle, is in the same class. This episode made me realize I, too, miss that character and enjoyed the banter between Speedle and Delko. The show is still good but would be better had Cochrane stayed.

Anyway, we discover Delko has never fully been able to recover from his friend's loss, hence the hallucinations where he's swears he sees and talks to Speedle. The latter helps him solve this case, he thinks. Horatio knows better, of course, and helps Eric, by the end of the show, get some professional counseling with this issue.

The story deals more, however, with two young people trapped in an SUV by the beach, the female dying from carbon monoxide and the male winding up hanging on in the hospital after smashing his way out of the vehicle. The twists and turns involve whether this was a suicide or a murder. Later, a shooting at a college involves somebody financially involved with the two young people.

However, fans of this series will remember the scenes with "Speedo," I would think, more than anything else. Too bad he couldn't be resurrected and return to CSI!
