Storyline

Miami star defense lawyer Derek Powell's yacht is attacked during a party, his partner Nadine Alcott is fatally shot. The stolen jewels are all found in the thief's speedboat, which is found with city contractor Ken Taber. Only Powell's notebook remains missing. It contains no major court case data, but a copy of Eric Delco's Cuban birth certificate. Horatio manages to plant a hit-woman and finds out that Russian mobster Gregor Kasparov has a contract on Eric's head. The team must solve opportunity and motives, including that of Eric's DNA-proved relative Alexander Sharova. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?

Goofs

Although underwater assault rifles firing drag-stabilized projectiles do exist, it is impossible to aim a shot out of the water at a target on land (or, like here, on a boat). With a choppy sea surface, you probably couldn't even see the target, but if you could, you'd need to compensate your point of aim for the light refraction at the water's surface, the strongly curved trajectory of the projectile and possibly also for disturbance of the projectile when it leaves the water.

Quotes

[after Eric was released detention following issues with his immigration status]
Calleigh Duquesne: [jokingly] You missed out.
[they hug]
Calleigh Duquesne: I was going to marry you, but your dad stepped in.
Eric Delko: [laughing] What makes you think I would say yes? Maybe I met somebody special on the inside.
Calleigh Duquesne: I doubt his cooking is as good as mine. Hey, why don't I take you back to my place, I'll make you a traditional American dinner since you are new to our country?
Eric Delko: Sounds good... but danger has been following me everywhere I go.

"Diddy" Is Piddy-Ful
23 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sean "P. Diddy" Combs is back once more which means the episode is not one of the best. He should forget about acting because he's clueless. Hopefully, this is the last us CSI-Miami fans will see of him. What's laughable is that he's playing the smartest defense attorney in Miami, and he sounds like a mentally-challenged person, to use the PC term.

The beginning of the episode is cool, though, especially when we learn later how a murder was executed. It's pretty clever.

A big part of this story, as it turns out, involves "Eric Delko" and his long-lost father, and the fact that the CSI investigator is on a "hit list." We also get the new love angle concerning Delko and "Calleigh Dusquense," which comes as kind of corny, considering they've been working together for years with no sparks flying until now?
