While Calleigh, Delko, and Ryan investigate the murder of a pool guy at a glamorous hotel, Horatio must figure out a way to save their jobs on the 6th episode of CSI: Miami.
According to CSI Files sources, the episode takes us to one of the most glamorous hotels in Miami, where the landscaper finds a body as he begins his day's work. The body is identified as Antonio Diaz, the hotel pool guy, and the lack of blood in the area indicates he was killed somewhere else and dumped there. Young, handsome, and very sexual, Antonio isn't known for being shy, and if anything can confirm that statement it's the golden magnetic card Antonio holds in his hand post-mortem. It seems Antonio has gotten intimate with one of the hotel's guests, the CSIs assume.
The key card leads Calleigh, Delko, and Ryan to a room booked to Yvette Travers, Felicia Hardy, and Beth Jacobson, three housewives having a "girls only" weekend in Miami. The women say they only knew Antonio briefly, as he had oiled all three of them the day before while they were in the pool. Calleigh wonders out loud why Antonio would have the key to their room in his hand, but the only explanation the women can come up with is maybe Antonio was planning to rob them. They also claim they are all married and would never cheat on their husbands, but as the CSIs continue the investigation they uncover a web of lies and deception surrounding the housewives that could've cost Antonio his life.
While the main plot develops, Alexx Woods has reason to step out of the morgue when she receives a 22-year-old girl's body and the autopsy reveals she died due to hospital negligence. It seems the young girl went into the operating room for a routine appendectomy, but died days later because a surgical sponge was left inside of her. Woods places a call to the hospital and learns one Dr. Brent Kessler performed the operation, and while surgical items being left inside patients is nothing new, she has reason to believe Dr. Kessler's carelessness could result in more dead patients.
During a visit to the hospital, Woods learns Dr. Kessler is known for having to step out of his operations constantly. She wonders if Dr. Kessler could possibly have a gambling or otherwise addictive problem, but a surgical nurse reveals Dr. Kessler only leaves the operation room to take his vitamins, no alcohol or drugs. But no one has ever had to rush out of a place just to take a few vitamins, could Dr. Kessler be hiding a more serious problem? Woods must confront the surgeon before more innocent patients end up on her autopsy table.
This episode of CSI: Miami is written in the Rashomon writing technique, in which the same situation is told through different points of view. In this case, viewers will be able to see the main investigation as it unfolds through the eyes of Delko, Calleigh, and Ryan, with some scenes being shown over and over but as they are witnessed, and sometimes misinterpreted, by the CSIs. Relationships and rivalries will also be understood better by the viewers, especially the tension between Delko and Ryan, as the characters' true colors are revealed through their perceptual experiences.
But the one thing the CSIs don't witness could cost them their job. Trouble arises for the CSI team when Horatio is informed that while his guys are very capable their personal problems are cause for concern to the higher ups. It seems Ryan Wolfe's reputation for being a media leak and Delko and Calleigh's emotional problems have not flown under the radar, and the head honchos are planning a surprise visit to the lab to test the young CSIs' competence in character and case handlings. While Horatio trusts his team unconditionally, deep down he's aware that their personal choices aren't always the best, and this might cost one of them, or all three, their jobs. Will he have time to intervene? And how far would Horatio go for his team?
