The CSI unit investigates when Frank, an apparent murder victim, sits up and needs help. But in fact, he's not just a victim, he's also a double murderer, and he coolly hijacks the Medevac helicopter taking him to a hospital. A paramedic tends to a barely conscious Frank, and helps him aboard the Medevac chopper. But he does too good a job of bringing Frank back to full consciousness, and is taken hostage when Frank steals Morgan's ill-secured weapon. A man who's looking to take a chance to regain control, he's given a shot of morphine at Frank's orders, but still tries to get the gun back, and is shot in the belly by a determined Frank. A cocksure pilot of a medevac chopper, "all aviator sunglasses and ego", he's in charge of the helicopter taking Frank and Morgan to the hospital.

Very unrealistic
13 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the more unrealistic episodes of csi, which seems to be a trend starting with season 12. In the first episode an entire train car is somehow transplanted back to the lab, in the next a guy commits suicide by chocolate, and along the way we see yet more instances of the lab rats carrying firearms and rushing into battle when I'm sure LV has a SWAT team and at the very least a few sheriffs or police officers who aren't made of tissue paper. Nevertheless we have here a hijacking of a member of law enforcement along with two Medvac pilots. Not to mention the CSI taken hostage here is the DAUGHTER OF THE UNDERSHERIFF. So, rather than the national counterterrorism taskforce or some crap flying blackhawks out to locate the chopper, we have old white-haired DB Russell (aka a video game character who possesses a form of Eagle/Batvision or detective mode / survival instincts) and capt. (interrogate/one-liner/jump out of the car looking like a badass when stuff gets serious) Jim Brass trying their hand at negotiation tactics, using the gangbanger daughter of our hijacker who makes Greg get more angry than I have ever seen (maybe he has finally found a replacement for that "it's Burrrrrrlesque" girl in his heart.) Long story slightly shorter we see the csi barbie doll allow her pistol to be stolen (how the hell is that little girl allowed to carry?) by our fugitive and we must watch helplessly as the helicopter is given free reign to fly toward Mexico. Yup.
