And now, we're climbing aboard the Luna Nueva. Delko's stopping to measure some tire tracks in the sand near the boat -- which leads me to believe that Martin had met the Bob-whites at the site where the boat had beached, as opposed to the Coast Guard actually pulling it into some kind of holding area, which is what I had thought earlier when Martin asked, "What kind of boat are you guys looking for?" and the camera zoomed back to show many small seafaring craft. You know, I'm probably thinking too much about this, or expecting any of the random "clues" tossed our way to make contextual sense. God, this show frustrates me.
Anyway, Speedle announces that he's got tracks, and one of the tires is bald. Delko gives him a thumbs-up and goes back to wandering around the Luna Nueva. The boat's missing its hull identification number. Speedle's supremely uninterested, as he's taking super-duper close-ups of the tire tracks.
We get a panning shot so we can remember that Miami happens to be located near a lot of water, and then Speedle climbs on the boat as Delko says, "Freedom run gone wrong." The two men poke around, and Speedle finds a rosary; holding it aloft, he notes, "This didn't work too good." That's why you have to get the glow-in-the-dark ones; they're both a contemplative tool and a way to see in the dark. Delko's found an empty asthma inhaler, prompting Speedle to muse, "Artifacts and abandonment." We flash to a chaotic reconstruction of what must have happened -- in the squall that's only been referenced once since the beginning of the episode (and that was on the radio), the boat is capsizing. Back in the present, Delko asks if Speedle feels suspicious. I have a feeling suspicion is a brainstem function for Speedle. The two men continue to poke around the boat as vaguely Latin music plays. Inside the main cabin, Delko finds a waterlogged note and calls, "Hey, Speedle! What do you think you can do with this?" Speedle, who looks both hot and bothered, asks, "What -- here or back at the lab?" No answer from Delko, which is kind of a meta-comment on this show's approach at large, I think.
The two of them continue to poke around the boat; it's apparently wicked hot, as Delko's shirt is now sticking to his body and Speedle's doing a lot of wiping of the brow. Speedle digs a spent bullet out of the boat's side (not its hull; we're still on the inside, and this looks as though it's a wall to a compartment) and comments, "That's for Calleigh." Delko hmmphs, but you just know he's going to be cornering Calleigh later and singing, "I know someone who liiiiiiiikes yooooooou." Delko picks up a mattress or padded PFD -- it's not clear which, and the camera angle certainly isn't helping -- and notes a lot of blood. "This could be our crime scene." "That could be fish blood," cautions Speedle. Delko swabs it and drops it in an envelope, saying, "And this is for Megan." Megan doesn't get the same reception Calleigh did.
