February 12, 2007: I Will. Kill You. Clavo. Season 5, Episode 15

This past week I stayed away from all the spoilers I came across so that I could give you my honest reaction to however Delko's situation played out - not an easy task for me, as I pretty much live for spoilers. What is my honest reaction, you ask? What the frak?! Frakity frak frak. Not to sound callous or anything here, but wouldn't it have just been kinder to kill this guy off? Yes, we have a very much alive Delko, but one who also has significant memory loss (the go-to plot device for dramas this season). And here I was preparing another one of my snappy obituaries. I'm sorry that Delko can't remember his sister is dead, but perhaps someone could kindly point out that her spitting image is working as an ADA up in Manhattan. It might help ease the pain. It's too early to know how this is going to play out over the rest of the season, or even the rest of the series. And in the near future, I may be talking about what a brilliant move this was on behalf of the writers, but forgive me for feeling a little ripped off at the moment. And just as an aside, how is it not a conflict of interest for the entire team to work on Eric's case? Of course, I do get to mourn one character: Clavo. I will miss him and his back-and-forth with Horatio. Some great lines of his: " "You know what, my friend? You are a serious player. You could learn something from this man, pop. He never gives up, and I love that about you, Caine." " "Lieutenant Caine - now my parade has officially been rained on." " "Yet another startling revelation on the obvious." Who can blame him for having a major beef with Horatio? H made one of Clavo's fathers disown him, and then he made the other one disown him. That takes some skill. Clavo's got his own failings, though. Cathy Gibson (played by Jennifer Hall) wasn't a very good fake hostage. But to be fair to her, Clavo certainly didn't make things easy, what with dumping her on the beach and all. It's still better than the unfortunate fate her ├╝ber-crazy Monica Wilder suffered on Nip/Tuck (you know, that other Miami-set drama). Where the whole blood diamond plot came in, I'm still not sure, but I renew my objection to CSI: Miami's strange obsession with being an issues-centered show as of late. This was almost two episodes in one, and for me, the Clavo half worked much better, mostly because it didn't take itself too seriously. Plus, the more serious stuff tends to invite me to explore plot holes - something I'd really rather not do. I suppose I'll be thinking for a while about the aftermath of this episode. This could be just the shot in the arm CSI: Miami needs in order allow for some character development. What are your thoughts on Eric's fate? Are you interested to see how this affects the team? Just glad he's still alive? Wish it had been Horatio instead? Until next week, as always, friends. show less
