CSI Miami “Out of Time” Season Premiere Photos, Episode Information

The first episode of season 8 for CSI Miami (CBS) goes backwards in time before the season can go forward. As viewers are aware, the end of last season left Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez) driving away with his father. The car later is found crashed in a pond and while Eric’s father is there, injured, Eric is nowhere to be found. Since it’s no secret that Adam Rodriguez is leaving CSI Miami, it should be no surprise that the new season begins with Eric in a coma. The episode also involves flashing back to 1997, and the early days of the Miami Dade Police Department, to give insight on how the team became the people that they are in the present day.

We learn a few tidbits of key information as evidenced by these photos and other general information leaked about this episode:

1. Horatio Caine (David Caruso) actually wore white shirts! (He looks better in white, I think)

2. Eric Delko may be the person who started Horatio on his obsession with sunglasses. (It could be because the glare from the white shirts were too much for Horatio when he looked in the mirror.)

3. Frank Tripp (Rex Linn) had hair. On his head, that is.

The show also introduces the new character Jesse Cardoza (Eddie Cibrian) who first shows up in the flashback, but will later return to Miami in the present time. Khandi Alexander also returns in the flashback as ME Alexx Woods.

It hasn’t been made quite clear in how many episodes Rodriguez will appear, so fans will just have to wait and see.

It sounds like an interesting premiere, and long as they don’t “cheese” it up to badly. Enjoy the pictures below that CBS has released for “Out of Time.” (The season premier is on Monday, September 21 at 10 PM.)

Thanks for posting the photos. I hadn't seen these! Caruso looks great in that suit. In fact, the costume department has needed to make a drastic change in his wardrobe for quite some time. The dark suits and shirts just didn't give off that "Miami" feel.

I also had no idea that Eric Rodriguez was departing. I am not surprised; he's paid his dues and now it's time for him to have a lead role. Or maybe Alan Ball could cast him as another one of True Blood's many hunk vampires.
