According to CSI Files sources, “Throwing Heat” will open with the arrival of a young Cuban refugee, Ario Pastano. His boat reaches the shore at Haulover Beach at 4:00 am on a Saturday morning. He touches the sand, grateful for his arrival in America, then sprints for the beach parking lot. His foot strikes something round and hard just below the surface of the sand.

Suddenly a land mine blows Pastano off his feet and into the air. Sand, tattered clothing and plastic explode in all directions.

Later, Horatio, Detective Tripp and Alexx examine the crime scene, where Pastano’s dead body lies in the sand. Alexx discovers a Cuban ID card in his pocket. Tripp identifies a pressure plate and points it out to Horatio. Horatio recognizes it as a pressure-release fuse and knows immediately that it’s a land mine. Alexx confirms that would explain the plastic fragments in the body.

In the course of the crime scene investigation, Tripp finds himself suddenly in danger when he steps on a land mine himself. He doesn’t move a muscle. A bomb tech is called in to diffuse the land mine with a Fire Ant, which uses aluminum, barium nitrate and PVC to burn out the mine’s TNT without detonating it.

After the bomb squad and initial crime scene crew have left, Ryan and Natalia return for further evidence collection. Among the items they discover is a rubber eyepiece from a pair of binoculars. Epithelials and a DNA profile run back at the lab belong to Walter Dunley, a man with a criminal record of hate crimes.

Horatio and Ryan bring Dunley in for interrogation. He admits to being at the beach when Pastano’s boat arrived, but claims he simply uses his binoculars to watch for incoming boats and alert Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He claims he fell asleep and didn’t see exactly what happened to Pastano, but he did see a man get into the passenger side of a vehicle, which quickly fled the scene.

Although it’s Delko’s day off, he offers to assist Calleigh by taking an autopsy photograph of Pastano to a local bar notorious for helping refugees obtain paperwork and jobs.

Delko questions the bartender, Brandon Spade, who claims he has never seen Pastano and wasn’t expecting any illegal immigrants that morning.

While questioning Spade, Delko witnesses an incident of domestic abuse between Vince Henning and his wife Karen. Delko steps in to assist Karen, punching her husband in the face. That act will come back to bite Delko.

Please note that the above plot details have not been confirmed by CBS, Alliance Atlantis or Bruckheimer Films, and until such time you should treat this information as you would any other rumour. The above information comes from early script drafts and the details of the episodes are liable to change before the episodes are shown.

“Throwing Heat” is expected to air on the 8th of January, 2007.
