Another CSI Vegas fan here. I do watch NY as well..... I thought the episode was great! I love the new guy. He's great. Very precise and not bad on the eyes. Horatio used to bother me a lot, one of the reasons why I don't normally watch Miami. But this episode he was dead on. His one-liners were down to a minimum. His stance was no more awkward than usual and I agree, the hug with the victims mom was such a humanizing touch. What I didn't like about the episode is that I figured out who the 'guy' was. Once that couple said that they found that second girls credit card in her purse in the park ( I think) and Calleigh and Det. Tripp were asking questions of them, I KNEW he was the guy. Or he was somehow involved. Then when the girl made eye contact with Calleigh and Cal asked her if there was a problem, why didn't Calleigh follow through with that? Why didn't Calleigh say something??? I guess it will come out later though. A Great episode. A bit on the gruesome side, but great none-the less.
