Delko walks down a prison corridor, to the delighted catcalls of the prisoners. I just can't shake the feeling that Delko would look stunning in lipstick and a belly shirt; there's got to be some sort of undercover drag operation in his future. As Delko finally reaches the cell where Speedle's working, Speedle looks up and asks, "What's with the no-ac, man?" Delko replies, "I had my phone on vibrate and I was, ah, a little busy." Speedle's all, "Yeah?" Delko elaborates, "I didn't want to be interrupted." Speedle rolls his eyes and asks, "Busy with the left hand?" Oh, I couldn't have said it better myself. Speedle's place in the TV harem is assured; he'll be staying in the Surly Law Enforcement wing along with Warrick and Angry Danny Taylor from CSI: Missing Guy. Delko's all, "Heh. Not," or something to that effect, before commenting on the decor in Joe Avilar's original cell. Speedle points out that Joe switched bands with Hank Kerner. Delko asks, "Three guys locked in the same cell, C.O. doesn't recognize them." We glance over to the CO, who looks abashed. Speedle points out, "He's fresh out of the academy. It's his first assignment. He sees a convict, he sees their clothes, not their faces." Delko can accept that. He surveys the bunks and asks Speedle, "You want upper or lower?" Speedle shrugs, "I got here on time." Heh. Delko snorts, "For once," and then sets to work examining the toilet while Speedle works the upper bunk. They search some more; there's an embroidery hoop with blue thread tucked in between the springs and the mattress of the upper bunk, and a lot of pictures of a smiling little girl whom one plaque identifies as Emma Kaye. Oh, that would be the adorable daughter of hit-and-drag driver Randall Kaye. This all leads to a seemingly inevitable conclusion: Delko plumbing the depths of the prison so he can poke around for reasons that aren't entirely apparent later. Therefore, we won't bother now.
So we'll just go to the next scene. Oh, goody -- (Y)Elena's there. As is Horatio. Mercifully, this scene is taking place in an intersection in broad daylight and not, say, in someone's bedroom. The upshot is that there's been another carjacking with Hank's fingerprints all over it, and Horatio's attempting to question a witness who speaks only Spanish. That guy should get with it -- as Miriam "Ma" Ferguson, former governor of Texas, allegedly said, "If English was good enough for Jesus Christ" -- and by extension, his redheaded stepbrother Horatio -- "it's good enough for me." Is it just me, or is there a history of Texas governors presenting logically-pretzeled oratory to the rest of the world? Anyway, (Y)Elena talks to the guy in Spanish for a while, and comes back to tell Horatio, "He may be talking about a muzzle flash." Oh, Horatio doesn't think so: "That is a traffic enforcement camera." We see flashbacks of it taking photos of Hank's carjacking, all so that we can see the gratuitous TMICam work of an ignition spark passing up a wire to make a camera flash.
