Poor Delko's having himself a freak-out on the cell phone when Caine grabs his attention for yet another pressing matter. "Right there," he intones. "We've got a survivor right there!" Delko screams, "Hold on, sir, I'm coming!" then leaps in the water. Well, at least he's dressed for it. And with all that nervous energy, he could probably skim the surface like a dragonfly. Caine watches Delko slog through the river, then heroically picks up the phone and barks that he needs air rescue. Give Horatio command post, give him mobile recovery, give him biohazard gear, give him an air rescue -- is there anything else he wants? How about a Hot Pocket? A Fresca, maybe? A mint on a silken pillow? No, no, Horatio -- really, just ask. Meanwhile, Delko's busy slogging through the Everglades, screaming reassurances as he goes; the minute he hits the guy, he bellows, "He's not breathing." Well. That challenges the definition of "survivor." Caine looks intense. Delko somehow finds a patch of solid ground, deposits this "survivor" -- taking care to jostle his neck as much as possible in the process -- and proceeds to launch into CPR. "Breathe, breathe, breathe," he urges. Horatio just hangs out and watches. Delko, meanwhile, is doing everything short of pounding on the guy's chest and screaming, "Live, damn you! Live!" Caine finally gets Delko's attention and lets us all know the survivor isn't. Delko is understandably winded, but he still manages to gasp out, "I lost him." "It happens," Horatio tells him. Delko contends that the floater could have told him something. Horatio says, "We don't need him to. We've got the whole story right here." He then shifts so he can pose cinematically in front of the airboat and the billowing plume of smoke.
And we go to the credits, the much-anticipated credits. Well, much anticipated in the Sobell household: I had money riding on the background music. All summer, the husband argued that CSI: Miami would provide the perfect opportunity for a Miami Sound Machine revival, while I countered that the people behind the spin-off would be counting on The Who to provide that all-important link to the original series. At some point, we made a wager. So when the opening scream of "Won't Get Fooled Again" echoed and the credits rolled, we had this conversation:
