When a registered sex offender is killed and the evidence links to someone at the lab, Horatio must connect the dots and once again exonerate one of his own in the new episode of CSI: Miami "Deviant."
According to CSI Files sources, the episode opens with 8-year-old Isabel Terraza at a park, screaming at the top of her lungs. At the same time, Charles Gordon is running for his life. He's being chased by four men, and even though Charles's determination to get away is fierce, he's eventually cornered in, thrown on the floor, and beaten over and over again by these anonymous assailants.
Hours later, while Alexx examines the lifeless body, Frank Tripp reveals Charles Gordon was a registered sex offender and child molester who was only released from jail a month ago. Witnesses claim Charles was chased by four men, making it obvious to Horatio that Charles's reputation had been divulged, and his presence was very much unwanted in this otherwise friendly neighborhood. Elsewhere, Delko finds a blood trail and follows it back to the park, where he finds a pink cell phone, a line created exclusively for kids. The phone dials 911 and the child's parents' number, and the data in the phone leads the CSIs to Victor Terraza, otherwise known as Isabel's father.
Victor claims he saw Charles moving in on Isabel, screamed at him to get away, and before he knew it a bunch of men began to chase Charles away. Worried solely about his daughter's safety, Victor grabbed Isabel and ran home. While talking to Isabel, Horatio notices there's blood on her dress, which is also torn, and her thighs are ripped. Could Isabel have been hurt by Charles? Fearing the worst, Horatio decides to take the little girl to the lab for processing.
While the evidence reveals Isabel wasn't raped, it also reveals very unique markings on Charles's face. Charles, it seems, was kicked in the face over and over again, and the impact left an imprint of the shoe sole on his skin. They're from the latest Colton Five Stars, and Ryan has seen a pair of those shoes before – worn by the same man who swore he was never at the scene of the crime.
Horatio talks to Victor Terraza again, and gets him to admit he was one of the men who beat up Charles. Victor is unapologetic. The neighborhood was very vocal about not wanting Charles there, but nobody listened and his daughter paid the consequences. Though Horatio understands Victor's fury, he also knows men can change and be reformed. But Victor is adamant. Everybody in the neighborhood knew who Charles was, courtesy of a bunch of posters that were spread all throughout the neighborhood – divulging Charles Gordon's secret reputation.
Ryan and Eric return to the scene of the crime to retrieve the famous posters, but the most shocking thing these flyers reveal is not Gordon's information, but who posted them. Everyone at the lab is shocked to find out the posters were spread by none other than Alexx Woods, who was a fierce proponent against Charles's presence in the safe neighborhood. Even though the CSIs know the medical examiner couldn't possibly be responsible for Charles Gordon's death, Alexx is interrogated. She clearly didn't kill Gordon, but could her posters have gotten the neighborhood riled up to the point of murder?
Alexx is let go, but news of her involvement in the case quickly make it to her boss's ears. She confronts Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Mike Hauston, who, in light of the day's events, decides to move her to the night shift. Hauston thinks Alexx should have as little mingling with Horatio and the team as possible, as her friendly relationship with the CSIs could ruin her future chances at advancing in her career. What's more, word that Alexx wrote a prescription for Ryan leaked around the lab, endangering her reputation as a respectable M.E. Is her love for the team really clouding her judgment as a doctor? It's evident Alexx will now have to choose between her loyalty to Horatio and her future in the medical field.
