Storyline

A very large man is beaten to death by a smaller man with enormous strength. During interrogation, the suspect jumps on Grissom and is subdued by police officers in the room. He ends up dead, not from being beaten, but from cardiac arrest. The findings in his stuffed car, which includes a waitress uniform, leads Grissom to investigate the dead man's motel. The result shocks the team when a skeleton of a woman is found buried in his property. Written by Ploy P.

Goofs

During the facial reconstruction, the large plasma screen used has a 16:9 format, while the actual computer screen running the software is a standard 4:3 format. The image on the plasma screen is clearly the 4:3 image, stretched (and thus distorted) to fill the 16:9 screen. A real crime lab would obviously *not* distort the image (and thus change the proportions of the face shown) - the whole point of the facial reconstruction is to find the correct proportions of how the face looked like.

Scary stuff, good back story
25 July 2012 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Maybe worth a 9 rating, but I'm stricter than most people on the ratings.

This starts off with a tough guy picking a fight. The scene cuts to later: we find that tough guy has received an absolutely brutal beating and died. At first it looks as though several people must have beaten him, but in the pathology lab scene (a CSI regular feature, where Grissom and Doc Robbins pontificate over a dead body) Robbins says it was probably just one..

It doesn't take the CSIs too long to discover the man who did it - a small man who must have been possessed by inhuman fury - sitting calmly having a drink in the same bar (smart fellow!) with badly swollen knuckles.

He turns out to be a truly scary guy. It does beggar belief that he's never been caught - bit of an idiot, though I wouldn't say it to his face :). But there's an interesting and moving back story woven in that is well worth watching.

Excellent television drama.
