There's no slowing down for the second season of CSI: Miami as the team, led by Horatio Caine, builds on their momentum from Season 1. Check out the previews for two of the more intense openings: a controlled burn gone awry in "Slow Burn" and an armored car robbery/shootout in "Money for Nothing," the latter featuring one of the best Horatio "one-liners" in the history of the series. Along the way, Lauren Holly guest stars as a grand prix race car owner under suspicion of murder in "Grand Prix" and Maria Conchita Alonso guest stars as a Cuban refugee activist in the griping "Blood Moon." There's murder at an air park in the aptly titled "Not Landing" and a paparazzi gets murdered in "Stalkerazzi." If that isn't enough to fill a season, the gang finds time to help launch the third installment of the franchise in "MIA/NYC - Nonstop" where NYC detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) helps Horatio track down a murderer who has fled to New York.
