February 5, 2007: I'm Gonna Be Fine Season 5, Episode 14

Please look at the title of this entry. If you are a police officer and you've been shot, you are never, ever, ever, ever to say this. Ever. Even though Delko's getting shot was the worst kept secret on tvguide.com, I certainly wasn't expecting it to be anything like it was. Dare I say, CSI: Miami is giving us suspense again? When he got shot in the leg, I figured that was it. And then he just had to go and say, "I'm gonna be fine." Horatio didn't even have any sunglasses to fiddle with. He just had to stand there and actually emote. It was a watershed moment in the history of this show. I have to admit that when the first Clavo episode aired, I was definitely more concerned with passing my physics-for-poets science requirement, and so while I vaguely remember it, it doesn't have quite the same resonance for me as it may have for others. I like the character, though. He's very over-the-top and so obviously evil that he almost makes up for the loss of Nick Townsend. (Was that really only two episodes ago? It feels like it's been an eternity.) The flashback sequences where he talked about how it was awesome to watch a woman die gave me shivers that were unrelated to the bitter cold enveloping much of the U.S. Plus, he's the only one that can really take on Horatio. Who didn't cheer him on just a little bit when he said, "Lieutenant Caine: the master of the obvious"? He's like a Bond nemesis in the amount of planning he puts into his schemes. He arranged a massive gun theft in order to get a rocket launcher which allowed him to blow up the exact courtroom in which he was being arraigned. And he managed to get a million dollars wired to Horatio's bank account, take a hostage and get Delko shot (twice!). I'm beyond excited that we'll have him back next week, as he seems to be the infusion of life that this show desperately needed. I was also impressed with the subplot concerning the little boy getting shot accidentally by his brother. It certainly seemed more plausible than many of the other crimes this season, as the brother really had no idea what he was doing when he shot through the wall. It would have been more effective, however, had Ryan not been gnawing the scenery. Fighting back tears is not a good look on him, nor does it seem very fitting with his character. He's dealt with worse cases than this, and never got too emotionally involved, so this rang a little hollow. I've given up on where the documentary-maker went. That story seems to have just disappeared. Overall, probably the strongest episode this season, and I wish there were more for me to say about it. But considering this is a two-parter, much has been left unresolved, so there's only so much to talk about. I'm really looking forward to next week's episode, which promises to be the emotional show that I thought was coming with that bomb-on-the-beach monstrosity. Delko's life is in the balance, and I think I speak for all of us when I pray that they let him live. I'm still not over the loss of Speed (Marisol, eh...), I can't bear to lose Delko as well. If he isn't going to survive, at least we get another episode with him next week. When he was lying on the ground at the end of this one, I really thought he was dead. Keep your fingers crossed, and take with you this little nugget of medical knowledge, courtesy of the other "master of the obvious," Alexx, and her "medical degree": "This one has blood coming out of his ears. It might be internal bleeding." show less
