Holy cow, I was right! As Horatio gets out of the Humvee, he meets Hagen. Hagen tells him that pedestrians saw the chopper losing altitude, and the fuselage was leaking fuel from the shootout. Ten bucks says Horatio's gun dealt that blow. Anyway, there are two dead bodies in the copter: a pilot and a passenger. Horatio asks Alexx if the two men were killed in the crash, and she replies, "Not unless they each crashed into a bullet." Hee! Each of the dead guys got a single shot to the temple. Horatio looks at Calleigh, as if searching for her face beneath the curtain of hair blowing to see if she's got any sort of facial expression.
Sadly, we don't get to find out, for the same reason we'll never know why anyone with super-long hair wears it blowing all over the place at crime scenes; some things are beyond the comprehension of we mortal men and women. Alexx tries hard to foreshadow the episode by asking Calleigh if the entrance wounds look familiar, but she's not playing. However, she does comment that convict Randall Kaye is familiar. Hagen adds, "Stockbroker, last Thanksgiving? Hit-and-run, dragged a pedestrian two miles under his car." Horatio mows over this recitation of a truly horrific way to die by noting, "He hired one of the most powerful attorneys in Palm Beach and got three short years. The question is, who's the pilot?" Alexx whips out a laminated card and says, "The license says Bryce Kaye. Could be his brother." Calleigh helpfully observes that this may not have been his planned landing area. Just then, the closed-captioning reads, "Good shot, H. Brought the chopper down." Note that we don't hear this, but now a segment of the television-watching audience has read that Horatio did indeed bring down the chopper single-handedly. It figures. Calleigh then does a word problem: "If they've been on the ground 40 minutes, and the average foot speed is five miles per hour, we've got a radius of just a little over three miles." Horatio notes that "they'll be looking for transportation. Hank Kerner will be all over that." Cut to Calleigh finally looking stricken. Hagen announces that he'll put out a BOLO ("be on the look-out") for all stolen vehicles. Calleigh's all, "Hank Kerner. I thought I recognized that muzzle stamp." Horatio's not going to let her wander around in a reminiscent fog; he snaps, "Let's hope someone recognizes him. Let's put his picture out on the news, and find Me." What? Find Horatio? That makes no sense. Does that mean people will be calling in and saying, "I saw this Hank guy, but I thought you'd rather know that Horatio's buying a cheeseburger?" Oh, this dialogue makes no sense.
