Storyline

IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler's vile informer Ron Saris pushes his host and former Jimmy Castigan in his pool during an argument after a party. However, the criminal is boiled alive by the high concentration of sodium hydroxide in the pool, having been added via the filtering system. Pool cleaner Pete Bishop's master-keys were stolen recently. Saris says he was threatened by Julia, who denies this but the note wasn't hers. Ryan shows Horatio Dr. Price is addicted and stole the missing pills from evidence. The alkali is traced to two more decomposing corpses. Saris points out Jimmy's accomplice. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Adding a single puny bucket of sodium hydroxide to a swimming pool containing some 100000 liters of water would not make a concentrated solution (that indeed could lead to the severe chemical burns depicted) but a very diluted solution which would just feel slightly soapy to the touch and cause a little eye irritation. Also, the bucket looks suspiciously light - if that was sodium hydroxide, it should weigh over 20 kg. See more »

Quotes

Ryan Wolfe: You're showing up late to crime scenes, you're taking pills at work. What is that? Is that oxy? You know, you got a problem. There comes a point in addiction when you don't care if you get caught anymore. You're there. What's gonna happen when you mess up in autopsy?
Dr. Tara Price: It's not gonna happen.
Ryan Wolfe: Oh, I used to say the same thing when I was gambling.

Nice Knowing You, Megalyn!
10 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A punk - one of "Ron Saris's" friends - gets pushed into a swimming pool by Saris and quickly is dissolved. No, it's not a pool full of acid but with the same effect. It's sodium hydroxide which, when combined with water, is lethal. Saris says the tainted pool must have been meant for him, as he owns the house. Still, the crook-turned-informer, is not exactly someone anyone trusts.

So who did this and why? Saris thinks it could be Horatio's ex-wife, "Julia Winston,"" who is pretty unstable, to say the least. He might be right. Then again, most of these episodes give you the obvious and then take it away.

Without giving anything away, I did find Horatio playing favorites with "Julia" as very unprofessional. Would he go to these lengths for anyone else (besides his other family members)? I doubt it.

In a sidebar, the CSI show loses one of its members. Well, "Dr. Tara Price," the new medical examiner this season, is toast. She was finally caught with a bunch of prescription drugs she had taken off dead people's belongings before doing autopsies. Too bad because I liked Megalyn Echikunwoke as "Dr. Price" and found her not just to be a pretty face but a likable character in a low-key way. I wonder if she wanted out of the show, or they didn't want her anymore. I don't know, but I'll miss seeing her.
