May 7, 2007: Cry, Wolfe Season 5, Episode 23

Here comes the new Wolfe, same as the old Wolfe. Talk about giving someone the benefit of the doubt. After the list of grievances Calleigh gave early in the episode (just to add to my list from last week), it turned out that all Ryan needed to do was admit the error of his ways while he was live on the air, and subsequently apologize directly to Horatio. If only everyone were so forgiving. The crime was a vehicle to serve up Ryan's redemption, and as such, was mostly a yawner. As always, for those who missed it, the carjacker, Jim, wasn't actually a carjacker. Sherry, the "victim," was getting paid by his brother to get him out to her car so that said brother could shoot him, on orders from the drug lord. When Jim discovered his brother's duplicity, the two got into a fistfight on Jim's boat, during which Jim was knocked overboard. The drug lord decided that he'd rather have Jim dead than discover where the missing kilos of heroin were. Oh, and Horatio got to ride out in a Coast Guard boat. It was a nice change of pace from the Hummer. But what about that man-trap? I so rarely get to say it, but thanks, CBS promos people, for not ruining the real shock of this episode. It was a little gratuitous, but I knew that cameraman had something bad coming to him after pushing Ryan to interfere with the crime scene. I didn't know, however, that he was going to get a whole bunch of metal spikes through his leg. We got a breather from the Eric-Calleigh flirtation this week. Sure, there was a little moment of Delko jealousy when he saw Ms. Duquesne on her cell phone all smiles and laughter (much as I am loath to admit it, it was actually a pretty cute scene), but there was no real action, probably due to the fact that this episode was all about Ryan. No, this week wasn't as strong as other episodes have been recently, but it still had its moments. Delko's "nice shirt" comment was a cute off-the-cuff line that gave the feel of camaraderie in an office where that sort of thing is usually lacking. Wolfe was still doing his best Horatio, and for the first time in ages we had a great Horatio line: "Judge jury and executioner." (It's all in the delivery.) There's just one episode left before the summer hiatus, and as H might say, "Things are just heating up."
