Horatio and Fireman Fred -- also known as Ronnie -- are talking about the soundproofing, and we learn that it wasn't up to code last month, but Quentin claimed he fixed it during the re-inspection. Bizarrely, Ronnie took him at his word. You'd think that fire inspectors would be a little more hard-ass about these things, but Ronnie claims there's a gentleman's agreement in place. Horatio points out, "Our guy is no gentleman." They look over the burn damage and conclude that Quentin violated the gentleman's agreement. Ronnie's all torn up inside.
Calleigh and Speedle are back in their jumpsuits and back at the club. Now that the room's clear, they can make headway on determining the cause of the fire, since Miami PD's arson investigation unit is apparently off fishing in the Keys. Speedle and Calleigh study the burn pattern and conclude that -- shocker! -- someone poured rum on the curtains. The curtains were on the floor at the time. Speedle and Calleigh follow the floor-based pour pattern to a small room which hasn't been cleared yet. As they enter, Horatio materializes and asks if his underlings have found anything yet. Everyone notices how the burn pattern is high outside, yet low here. Horatio asks if anyone else smells something funny. Speedle's all, "It's burnt flesh. It's everywhere." Horatio replies, "Yeah, but it's more pronounced in here, isn't it?" Well, that would be because there's a body buried beneath all the rubble. Everyone thinks it's the missing bartender, and offers up their theories as to what his crispy corpse is during buried beneath the rubble. Horatio lifts up the guy's arm, and we see all the blood on his shirt; Calleigh notes that there's an awful lot of blood for a burn victim. Horatio replies, "There certainly is a lot of blood. Someone could have started a fire to cover a murder!"
