CSI:Crime Scene Investigation-Ellie
10 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Grissom is racing cockroaches and Catherine is off to attend a casino opening with Sam so Warrick, despite his lack of seniority, is put in charge. It's quite a shift, too, as he must deal with a murder investigation involving Detective Brass' daughter, Ellie, and Sara's unusual case involving counterfeit money. Brass gets a bit too close to the investigation of his daughter who is working as a drug mule along with her boyfriend, and could be the one who shot a member of their coke smuggling team(shot in the ear lobe after snookering a couple with fake poker chips, making of with several thousand dollars worth of counterfeit bills). This was a rare chance of seeing Warrick contending with multiple problems in substitution for Grissom, while Cat is away as well. We see the tension(feel it for lack of a better term)visible between Nick and Sara who hold seniority over Warrick, yet must answer to him. We also get a peek into Brass' personal life, a past which recognizes his not-so-healthy relationship with his estranged daughter. Nicki Aycox(who is a smoldering presence)is Brass' daughter, her scenes with him just break your heart.
