Hollywood sex symbol Tom Haviland admits having had sex with a girl who is found in the same casino hotel, throat fatally pierced with a corkscrew. As he failed to clean up, the team quickly gathers enough evidence for a murder charge. His top lawyer chooses to demand a near-instant trial, leaving CSI almost no time to work out the part of Tom's buddy and a second victim, actually the first murder. Meanwhile Grissom's mentor and predecessor, Dr. Phillip Gerard, uses all his forensic expertise to question every move they make and discredit team members. Written by KGF Vissers

The Accused is Entitled to see the Wallflowers
6 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

for those who don't know, the Wallflowers (lead by Bob Dylan's son, Jakob) plays their song "Everybody out of the Water" in the beginning of the episode. The lineup also included guitar player Yogi, Rami Jaffee on keyboards, Greg Richling on bass, and Mario Calire on drums. The song played in this episode can be found not only on the CSI official soundtrack, but on the Wallflowers album, 'Red Letter Days.'

Personally, beyond the Wallflowers being in the episode, I find this one to be my favorite... It stars Chad Michael Murray (from One Tree Hill/House of Wax). While I'm not a fan of most other things he's done, I think he did a great job in this particular episode. The ending, which I will not reveal here, is somewhat predictable, but nevertheless a great twist for the episode.
