The best interview with David on the subject of H's death is in 'TV Guide' for April 9-15, 2007 (Yes, I know it's old!). I've don't know if you can get it online, but I'll quote a bit, and hope it's not too long: 'The image that haunts Caruso most, though, is the same one - naturally - that's driving Horatio, and it's the one that will carry them both to the final episode of the series, he says. Caruso has mentioned before that he believes a crucial clue about that journey of Horatio's was revealed in the very first episode of CSI Miami, when Horatio's crew helped the Las Vegas CSIs solve a murder. To refresh your memory, the episode revolved around a girl kidnapped in Vegas and found at a palm-tree farm in south Florida. The girl escapes but her parents are dead, and, in one of the final scenes, Horatio opens up to the girl in a way he only seems to do with children. He tells her, "I lost someone once." Caruso starts choking up when he talks about it now. He says, "I'm still not sure what it means but I keep thinking the last moment of H's life will be in that palm-tree farm. I think the little girl from that first episode may lead him back there to find what he's really looking for." Which is? He does a dramatic pause as only Caruso/H can do. "Marisol," he says. "I think reconnecting with her, seeing her face, may be how Horatio knows he's dead." ' Sorry if that's too long for the H non-believers! Probably should have posted on the H/DC thread, but several people asked about the interview. (Moderators - feel free to move it.) Let the man do it, I say. In fact, let the man write it.
