If you’re hoping to have a vicarious bask in the Florida sunshine, there’s not much of it in this episode because the main story is about a shooting in a nightclub that leaves two men dead and one seriously wounded. The survivor is Ricky Murdoch (Ian Somerhalder), whose family is one of the wealthiest and influential in Miami.
The obvious suspect is Angelo Sedaris, the cool but sleazy owner of another nearby club and who should be playing him but The Wire’s Idris Elba. “Something’s not right,” says Horatio. Meanwhile, Calleigh’s dad announces he is now a public defender and needs her help with a murder case.
The heir to a Miami sugar fortune miraculously survives a shooting in which two other people are killed - but his narrow escape seems too good to be true and arouses the team's suspicions. Meanwhile, Calleigh's father asks her to investigate the case of a woman who stabbed her boyfriend to death with a screwdriver. Crime drama, starring David Caruso, Emily Procter and Adam Rodriguez.
