CSI: QT: Volume 2.
30 May 2007 | by (Mansfield, Pennsylvania.) – See all my reviews

So, Mr. Gordon blew himself up, leaving the team to try to piece together Nick's location through his car, his daughter, and the web cam. My favorite scene has to be the surreal dream sequence where Nick watches while Doc Robbins and David perform a gruesome autopsy on him as the song Nick sang in Volume One plays in the background. The single shot that follows Sarah as she looks for Kelly Gordon's file is fantastic as well. Even though it seemed obvious all the way that Nick would survive, being a regular, there are still a lot of tense moments and the entire cast, especially Eads, get to show off their acting skill to a higher extent than any other episode. Grave Danger plays more like a movie and has been shown on Spike as such with limited commercial interruption. Grave Danger takes what has come before it in nearly five seasons and manages to go to another level. It is great television and more.
