I’m glad to see CSI taking on new ideas for cases along with the addition of Db and Finn this season, and this week’s outing is a good example of this very thing.
I doubt I could count all the crime drama episodes that focused on “getting the innocent man out of jail.” This show has even used this same plot in a few variations.
However, "Altered Stakes" gave us the evil-twin of this plot, by saying: “What if you need to keep a convicted man in jail?”
When the episode opened with a softball game, my wife said, “she’s going to hit a homerun and the ball will land next to a body.” Because that’s what most crime dramas would have done. Thankfully, Db and his team reminded us why the show has been on the air for 12 years (and counting).

Viewers first met Det. Carlos Moreno (Murciano) back in season 10, when he helped the gang out on a case involving a dead police officer. This time, he’s hoping to help repair the broken legacy of his deceased stepfather…Det. Sam Vega!
Vega (Geoffrey Rivas) was killed earlier this season after it was revealed he’d turned into a vigilante cop of sorts, killing suspects who had escaped justice in cold cases. »
