Fantastic Opening, And Interesting Throughout
27 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A couple of guys from the past - both boyfriends of Calleigh: "Jake Berkeley" (Johnny Whitworth) and "Eric Delko" (Adam Rodriguez).

Eric thinks that Jake might be in on this crime. Is he? It's doubtful. Being an undercover agent has to be just brutal. Nobody quite trusts him: the crooks or the cops.

There is a unique twist in this story that was cool. There are always twists in the CSI episodes but this was a good one, concerning who the thieves were. Also what was excellent was the opening, one that got your attention big-time and stayed that way through the five minutes. It was like watching a really good heist film.

There is an unresolved aspect to this crime with undertones somebody at the lab might be a thief himself....or herself. It makes me wonder if someone isn't kicked off the show when "Delko" returns full-time (I'm assuming) next season.
