Poor Calleigh, in the meantime, is the one who has to break the results of the investigation to Pearl, who asks, "An accident? How can it be?" Calleigh assures her, "We are so sorry, Pearl." Delko steps in, "Pearl, may we, uh, ask about Betty's will?" Pearl asks, "What will?" Calleigh explains, "Betty changed her will and set up a trust commencing at the time of her death." "For who?" Pearl asks. "For you. You'll be well cared for now," Calleigh says. Okay -- why would Delko have to ask about this? Presumably, Calleigh would have told him. Anyway, Pearl says, "She always did take care of me. I'm the youngest." She turns to Delko -- who, if previous shows are anything to go on, is also the baby of the family. Pearl then turns back to Calleigh to say, "You look a lot like her. She loved to wear her hair long down her back. Just like you." And this plot ends with Calleigh and Delko exchanging glances and realizing that Pearl may be beginning to slip a little too.
Horatio, meanwhile, is taking all sorts of pictures of Kimble's stab wounds as Speedle photographs the knife. Surprise, surprise: the hilt shape matches the stab patterns on the wound. Horatio breaks the news to Wilmont and his lawyer with no small amount of satisfaction. He then warmly thanks Wilmont for handing over the knife that will lead to a negligent homicide charge, a not-so-negligent homicide charge, and who knows what for the OD. Wilmont takes this all in without changing expression, which, in my opinion, is like the most effective anti-Botox moment ever, as it demonstrates the creepy expressionlessness that the excessively treated get after a while. And it's not even good Botox, since Wilmont's sporting a set of forehead furrows.
Anyway, Horatio thanks him, then heads out the door to return the focus of this case to its rightful place, i.e. him. After a conversation with Alexx where he's all, "For me, it is all about the victims, especially the ones who die too young, too soon" (causing me and Mr. Sobell to sing, "Liiii-ar! Liiii-ar! Liiii-ar!") before going off to brood at his brother's graveside, leaving us all to wonder when we're going to be treated to the episode about how Raymond Caine died too young, too soon. According to his gravestone (10/24/68 -- 03/18/93), Raymond was only twenty-four when he died, so you know that story's coming sooner or later. And when it does, Horatio will be there to brood over it.
