Back at the club, Speedle's wandering around piles of debris that have been dragged outside. He prepares to go through the evidence, but gets waylaid by a flashback to the club fire. Or, as I like to call it, remembering what happened last night. These episodes always play fast and loose with the space-time continuum. Alexx comes out with the body, and as Speedle watches them leave, he notices how the door stays propped open even after Alexx lets it fall. Speedle comments, "It's weighted. It should've closed by itself, but it didn't. And it didn't the night of the fire." He has another flashback to last night -- talk about your unnecessary drama. You'd think that these guys spend all their time flashing back to what they had for breakfast that morning. Speedle then goes into the whole "I found this open and got people through it, and it doesn't make sense, blah blah blah." Understandably irritated, Alexx asks, "What are you getting at?" Speedle's getting at this: "Somebody left the club in a hurry, right before the fire, and forgot to shut the door." We flash to that fatal instant. Alexx adds, "And maybe, just after he stabbed our bartender." We flash to that fatal instant again. This is how we figure out that there was blood on the door, and since Speedle was the first one out after the killer, he must have some on the sleeve of his shirt, since he used his sleeve to prevent getting burned by the door handle. Then we flash back to the beginning of that scene. Kidding! No more flashbacks.
Alexx asks, "You still have that shirt?" Cut to Speedle dumping out multiple trash cans until he finds it. Suddenly, so much of his wardrobe makes sense. Sure enough, there's blood on the shirt. However, after testing, there's neither a hit in CODIS nor a sample to match it to. Vin Ethanol chooses that moment to come in and tell us the results of his background check: Ben (sigh) Browder applied three times to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and was rejected all three times. There's apparently no need to tell why. Delko can't believe Ben (sigh) Browder would have anything to do with the fire, what with him running in to try and put it out, then staying to rescue people, since wannabe firemen would never stage a stunt that they could use to get into a long-desired job. Speedle's not nearly so charitable. Suddenly, the camera pulls back from the clutch of CSIs discussing this to Horatio, who's at the opposite end of the lab bench with his back turned to them, brooding in the shadows once more. You know, spending all his time hanging out in the dark has got to have some irritating side effects, like not being able to see clearly when he shaves. Anyway, Horatio's all, "He started the fire so he could pull people out because it was his dream to be a hero, right?" Speedle concludes, "And in the middle of it, he stabbed his witness, the bartender. I'll get a warrant for his DNA and I'll work him." Horatio would rather have Delko do it, since he's got the relationship with this guy. Delko's all, "Well, he's going to give blood today..." which raises a few more space-time questions, like "Exactly how quickly did Speedle and Calleigh work during their multiple trips to the burnt-out bar?" and "Is there an extremely long line at the blood bank, or is Ben (sigh) Browder going back multiple times?" and "Exactly how many trips has Horatio made all over Miami with the judge's house, the interrogation room, the club, the impound lot, et cetera?" and "How can all this be crammed into fewer than 24 hours?" Anyway, Horatio warns Delko that Ben (sigh) Browder could be unpredictable. No, Horatio, he could not. Nothing in this episode is unpredictable.
