CSI:Crime Scene Investigation-Primum Non Nocere
24 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A stockbroker who moonlights as a hockey player in a minor league team dies from what might could've been an opponent's skate blade across the carotid artery. The difficulty of proving who committed the murder is amplified because a pile of players were involved with the victim, Terry, on the bottom. Terry was a rabblerouser responsible for many of the players losing a lot of money on the stock market and practically everyone on the ice hated him. A female hockey player, Jane, was juggling two relationships, a romantic one with Tommy and a sexual one with Terry. Meanwhile, Warrick and Nick are on the case of a musician found dead in the room of a club, victim of a heroine overdose(investigation reveals that the addict had 91% of the pure China White in his system). Warrick may get too close to a possible suspect, an alluring singer named Lillie. Episode reveals Grissom's feelings for Sara(a comment about her beauty), Nick's tension with Warrick when he tells him to step away from Lillie, and that a contact lens could be the major clue to catch the dope dealer. A tooth(found in the Zamboni machine) and dirty toe nail(found in Jane's bed)are two evidentiary clues which might shed some light on who was responsible for Terry's murder. But a rare heart condition Terry had could also paint a completely different cause of death and murderer.
