Las Vegas's retired police commissioner Duke Rittle was tortured to death after an 'exclusive' party. The ex-con who drove him is found murdered in the car's trunk, but not the last on Grissom's trail. Rittle's young daughter Sasha is missing and the suspect, a socialite chameleon, is seen on a private flight to Miami. Grissom sends Catherine there. Luckily Horatio takes brilliant charge, realizing it's the MO of a Florida serial killer of socialite couples, who spared the girl but eliminated all other witnesses and clearly isn't done yet, even sets a trap for the police.

Did You Know?


The Miami-Dade Police Department's crime lab really is called Crime Scene Investigations, unlike Las Vegas which where they are called Crime Scene Technicians & New York where they are called C.S.U (which stands for Crime Scene Unit). See more »


When figuring out what the criminal's "fruity scent" is caused from, Grissom tells Katherine that it's because of Diabetic Ketoacetosis, which is treated with Novolin Insulin. This, however, cannot be the case since Ketoacetosis is, in fact, a very debilitating complication that can result from diabetes, which would either require extensive hospitalization or, in less severe cases, a treatment that would last, at most, a single day. Not only that, but Novolin Insulin isn't a specific type of insulin, it's a genetically similar to human insulin created by Squibb-Novo, making it a brand name instead of a treatment, and would, more than likely, be a constant running medication instead of just for the one condition.

Oh, Horatio...
14 March 2019 | by MistressHSee all my reviews

For the longest time, I thought I didn't like David Caruso, so I never watched CSI:Miami. Recently, however, I decided to binge rewatch all of the CSIs. I started with NY, then Las Vegas, starting halfway through season 9, when Langston (Lawrence Fishburn) joined the team. After that, I followed DB onto CSI:Cyber, and then decided I would FINALLY give Miami a shot. Now, I can't believe what I've been missing all these years. Horatio Caine's character is outstanding. All of the leads on each show have their own quirks that make them unique; almost all of them have walls that make them hard to read, or seemingly objective and unemotional (with the exception of Langston), but Caine has two sides: EXTREMELY empathetic...especially involving children...and absolutely ice cold, hardcore badass. His character, and the intertwining storyline between all of the main characters, pulled me in more than any of the other shows, and I was surprised by how passionate he was. Caruso not only won me over, but became my favorite. When I finished, I restarted CSI:Las Vegas so I could watch the first 9 seasons with Grissom, and then I stumbled on this backdoor pilot that I had completely forgotten about....and I immediately wanted to start watching Miami again....haha. I guess it affected me even more than I realized.
