Goofs

During a climatic chase and shootout between Gary Sinise and Kam Heskin's characters inside a high-rise construction site, they take turns running and stopping to exchange gunfire at various locations in the site. However, Kam Heskin almost always seems to stop next to the exact same pillar, which has the initials "DOA" and the word "Keeps" scrawled in graffiti on it. See more »

The Hunt For Suspect X
22 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remember "Suspect X" from an earlier episode, the one in which the hot blonde/cold-blooded serial killer escapes? Well, she's b-a-a-a-a-ck!

Without trying to give too much away, the mysterious "Suspect X" has the CSI men and women coming-and-going as she appears to have been killed by someone more deadly than her....someone with a huge grudge. Later, as they are on to that person's trail, it now looks as if the dead woman they thought was Suspect X might be a decoy, made to look like her! It gets pretty wild.

There are other subplots and such in this episode, too, but the main thing is finding "Suspect X" (Kam Heskin), and that is done via a dramatic chase-and-shoot sequence with her and "Mac" (Gary Sinise). That action scene is very hokey with both professional shooters taking 30-50 shots each from close range and missing. Come on! This Uma Thurman-type-Kill Bill killer deserved a better ending and more cat-and-mouse intelligence than what was seen in this episode, to be frank. That doesn't mean it wasn't fun to watch: it was; it just couldn't live up to the first part of the story.
