I spotted the killer as soon as they mentioned Eric having gotten the codes by romancing them from a woman. That raised red flags in my mind about the female cyber cop. As to flipping the lights so you have a clear path, the usual method is to use an infrared strobe to trip the signals (authorized emergency vehicles are equipped with them to allow them to get clearance to get the the green lights they need). The method that was used was more complex since it needed the vehicle to be real time tracked by GPS so its location was known to allow the correct lights to be manipulated to give it the needed Green Lights.
I was wondering if they were going to re-air the Backdoor Plot CSI Episode. It looks like they will.
"the Top Gun and Frozen movie references both of which are awesome flicks" What was the movie referenced right at the end with the plot quote? It was familiar but I did not remember the movie it was referencing.
The CC showed it as "Sahib" as you note.
I do not see the killing as being "In Cold Blood". They captured Sergei and could have just killed him. Instead they offered him a chance to surrender voluntarily, to escape, as getting a first shot at Fornell (admittedly with a gun were the first bullet in the clip was not chambered). He did not bother to check the gun but just tried to shoot it. He made his choice and thus was killed due to trying to use the gun. He thus rejected the opportunity to live. Cold Blood killing was what he did to Fornell's Wife.
"It is vague, as we don't know if the gun was truly loaded or not. Sergei didn't check it before deciding to try to shoot. It could have been also loaded and not chambered. again that is on Sergei for not checking." The type of gun was one where the slide does not lock in the open position when the clip is emptied by shooting the last round and will automatically chamber a round once a new loaded clip is inserted. Thus there is no way to know if the clip was empty or not. All we know is that there was not a chambered round (since you have to work the slide to chamber the first round when inserting the new clip). The main point was that he tried to shoot the gun (and it clicked) before he was finally shot. Thus it was a "good" kill since he "shot first", refused to surrender, and (as noted) did not check out the gun to see if it was loaded and a round chambered. If the gun was loaded with blanks or the firing pin was missing or shortened it would be a different story in respect to checking the gun since an inspection would not spot this type of thing.
Query - Is Emily Fornell the correct age in this episode based on the prior appearance of the character? I seem to remember her as being a very young child when she was kidnapped from a party (if I remember the scenario correctly).
As soon as Sergei woke up with the gun in his lap, I yelled "Its Unloaded". As I noted, in another reply, Sergei had the chance to check the gun and did not. Thus he got what he deserved for failing to check. He compounded this error by not surrendering as well as "Shooting First".
He also failed by ignoring rule number 1 when handed an unknown gun - Check if the gun is loaded. He was given a fair chance to surrender and did not take it. Earlier this season the same type of situation was used on Criminal Minds in relation to Gideon's killer. I wonder what type of report Gibbs and Fornell filed - Vance seemed to not have bought the circumstances and knew that something was being omitted/suppressed.
Actresses Claire Coffee (Adalind) is pregnant in real life. The simplest solution is to work it into the plot in lieu of trying to hide her condition as is sometimes done. If I were writing the plot, I would use this plot development to tone down her quest for baby 1. So long as she has a child to bond with, going after the first one becomes less of a priority (although something that I would not expect her to forget about).
